Critic reviews for Ahimsa
The episode provided a lot of opportunity for character growth. Furthermore, it paved the way for the introduction of another beloved DC character that is going to have a lot to say about the events that have taken place.
This episode left us with a few intense revelations as a send off to next week. Part of what makes this season much stronger than the previous one is the way it is broken - that is, the parceling out of various stories for each episode.
While it can be a powerful tool, rage can lead to some pretty stupid responses whether they be physical, verbal, or otherwise. "Ahimsa" takes a look at political action through a pacifist lens, or it at least starts to.
It baffles me that the government doesn't think it's a good idea to bring in another hero while Supergirl is sidelined.
