Critic Reviews for Battles Lost and Won

They sure did lay it on thick with those heartfelt goodbyes and touching moments.

I won't guess what we're meant to know about Lena from here on out. If she's changing in any significant way, we'd better at least get a good explanation for it. Sadly, we'll be waiting a long time to find out what this all means.

Way too busy, frustratingly devoid of the central character ([Supergirl] disappeared from the plot for almost twenty minutes!), and kind of a mess overall.

To its credit, at least "Battles Lost and Won" worked most of the global carnage out of its system early on.

Is your heart warm? Mine's positively glowing from the variety of joyful, bittersweet, and surprising life changes doled out in Supergirl's third season finale, which will certainly alter the shape of the show when it returns in the fall.

Many of these half-baked ideas, including Guardian's unmasking and the ongoing conflict between Lena and Supergirl, will clearly be fodder for next season.

The parts of "Battles Lost and Won" that are good are great, and the parts that are bad end up being pretty unfortunate, but it accomplishes exactly what a show revolving around the Girl of Steel should do; it inspires hope.

While I've been feeling relatively emotionally detached from Supergirl since it returned from hiatus (and even a little before that too), this episode offers some moments of pathos that feel like old school Supergirl.

A lazy storytelling tactic is used, but perhaps this will lead into a very interesting storyline for Season 4.

At last, Supergirl finds its home. I wish it hadn't taken so long.
