Critic Reviews for Rather the Fallen Angel

"Condensed" is a good way to describe "Rather The Fallen Angel" in general, as it's basically a condensed version of James actually infiltrating the Children of Liberty.

The backhalf worked very well.

[Lena's] definitely getting a little bit too close to mad scientist levels, but "Rather the Fallen Angel" does a good job illustrating her motivations.

Lockwood has an even bigger target on his back.

Nov 26, 2018 | Rating: 3.7/5 | Full Review…

It's still early in the season so there's time for the writers to do something different with this storyline. I hope they do because in this episode at least it was just frustrating.

As such, it isn't surprising to see Supergirl's version of Manchester Black take such violent actions in his quest for revenge.

I would love to see Lena in intellectual conversation with those who created the atom bomb, considering the obvious implications of her inventions, or at least held accountable for not doing so.
