With the musical crossover still fresh in my head, it's hard not to think about what songs would fit certain scenes in the latest Supergirl. "Distant Sun" featured a number of schmoopy moments that could have been punctuated by any number of pop love songs. Heck, a power ballad wouldn't have been out of place when Mon-El thought he was leaving Supergirl behind forever. But with Music Meister gone, no one burst into song (wouldn't it have been a fun, temporary side effect?) as Mon-El faced his parents and the DEO was put into a tricky position.
You can't keep a Luthor down. Some families seem to have an unstoppable resilience written into their DNA, and that was on display in tonight’s episode, "Luthors." Lillian Luthor used Metallo to get herself out of prison and out of a trial and managed to manipulate Lena. Note the words "used" and "manipulate" in that sentence. They're methods Lillian wields like sharp weapons.
"You are not your people."
Last week's Supergirl saw J'onn have an epiphany about M'gann being different from the White Martians who enslaved and slaughtered his people, and he had her back in "The Martian Chronicles."
Supergirl has a nemesis. The radio jockey turned electrifying villain Livewire is a regular thorn in Kara's side. In the newest Supergirl, "We Can Be Heroes," Kara says her cousin Clark makes having a nemesis sound kind of fun, like "having a deadly pen pal once a year."
Well, she's not on board. Learning Livewire is loose and causing problems in National City again makes Kara angry and irritable. She snaps at her co-workers and friends. Guys, she scowls
So, she wasn't in the best of moods when she learned the identity of Guardian. Uh-oh.
Cadmus has been lurking in the background of Supergirl for months, and Kara finally got a firsthand taste of the organization's nefarious activity in tonight’s episode, "The Darkest Places." She went into their facility to extract Mon-El, but she ran into a couple of faces she didn't expect, including Hank Henshaw, a.k.a. Cyborg Superman.
Alien fight club. Roulette. Miss Martian's secret—we have a lot of ground to cover in "Survivors." But before I get into those awesome aspects of the latest Supergirl, we need to talk about Snapper Carr. Look, I don't like the guy. He's gruff, mean, and often condescending. I don't think he's someone with a soft and gooey center. However, his prickly attitude doesn't make him wrong.
