Critic reviews for The Missing Link

Supergirl Season 5 Episode 18, "The Missing Link," finally answers some season-long questions while brilliantly setting up new opportunities for characters beyond next week's season finale.

"The Missing Link"'s final five minutes are so strong that they're almost enough to make the rest of the hour worthwhile.

A dynamic episode that showed what the superhero show could do when it is at its best.

May 11, 2020 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

It has all the pomp and circumstance of a penultimate episode. And while some of its shifts feel rather abrupt (namely the Lena stuff), this is an appropriately dramatic, action-packed hour to send Supergirl barreling towards the finish line.

Honestly? This is the most frightening version of Lex Luthor that I've seen on film and screen, friends. Jon Cryer's unleashed rage is absolutely visceral.
