Critic reviews for Confidence Women
Finally an episode which moves with confidence, exudes swagger and pulls together various threads across numerous time periods without dropping the ball. There are logical choices, revelations and back story aplenty.
Even though there are a few time-related plot holes in "Confidence Women," they can be easily overlooked due to the episode's rich content.
Thanks to a Martian-less hour and (finally!) a deep dive into why Andrea is who she is, Supergirl is back on track.
This episode got ridiculous at some points, as it tried to put decades of backstory into two acts of a TV episode, but it was never anything less than wildly entertaining.
None of it's bad, exactly, it's just hard to invest in deep emotions of fear, love, betrayal, loyalty, and manipulation when the episode keeps bouncing from one thing to the next.
