Critic reviews for Stranger Beside Me

For the time being though we only have a scary little girl, eight foot white Martian and an elaborate mind palace to distract us from the saccharine soaked undercurrent running through season five.

It will be interesting, yet devastating, to see how far Lena will go before Kara is forced to stop her.

October 14, 2019 | Rating: 4.2/5 | Full Review…

Supergirl is at its best when it is highlighting carefully-constructed relationships on the show, and the father-daughter relationship between Kara and J'onn is one of the best-earned dynamics on the series.

"Stranger Beside Me" lays out some interesting ideas and themes for the season to explore, it just doesn't entirely function as an episode in its own right.

Supergirl's second episode of the season puts several plotlines in the oven to bake, and we'll no doubt see them crisp up to a golden brown as the weeks march along.
