Critic reviews for Shelter From the Storm
The cape tricks continue to be a nice addition to the back half of the season's choreography, which goes a long way toward keeping the relatively few number of villains from feeling a bit stagnant.
True to its title, "Shelter from the Storm" reduces the scope and stakes -- a move as smart as it is welcome.
I used to be a one-woman marketing machine for this show and now it's starting to lose my trust. Honestly, my feelings toward Supergirl the show right now are not unlike Lena's relationship with Supergirl the person.
Reign makes it to the mansion first, and what follows is a fantastic, spot-on homage to the booby traps outside of Lex's abandoned subway lair in the 1978 Richard Donner Superman film.
