Critic reviews for Reality Bytes

Supergirl Season 5 Episode 15, "Reality Bytes," is a life-affirming hour of TV and a strong episode for an otherwise bumpy season.

The final conversation between the two, in which Nia tells Kara about how overwhelmed and helpless she feels is one of the best Supergirl has ever done. It's Kara at her kindest, most uplifting best.
