Critic reviews for The House of L
There have been a lot of questions over the course of this season, a lot of missing puzzle pieces, and this episode works to fill a bunch of them in.
This episode posits that it has been an animating force behind the entire last season in a way that feels less like a revelation and more like confusion.
Usually, I'm not a fan of flashback episodes, but seeing rounded Red Daughter origin story from the big bad's viewpoint gave us all the answers we've been seeking throughout Supergirl Season 4.
In spite of the episode's strong frantic opening, its greatest strength lay in the fact that it finally slowed things down to tell the viewers a story that we have all wanted to see for quite some time now.
What's frustrating is that all of the poetry of the most poetic fate of any comic book character in existence was stolen.
