Critic reviews for Deus Lex Machina
Whether you're a fan of Lex or not, "Deus Lex Machina" sets up the dominos for a truly unforgettable Season 5 finale.
Perhaps Lex's presence is the necessary price to truly push the Leviathan arc forward at last, but it's hard not to feel as though his increased presence has somehow taken something away from the other Luthor on Supergirl's canvas.
While all this backstory made for a great episode and connected a lot of dots, I can't help but wish that we had known about some of Lex's plans earlier. It would have made the previous episodes a lot more enjoyable.
Those missteps are easier to forgive when the character stuff in "Deus Lex Machina" is so strong and the performances are so uniformly great.
