When you think about a character like Supergirl, you imagine someone who is a paragon of virtue. Kara's not immoral and is often a representative of all things good, but "Exodus" proved she can slip a little. Maybe. Let's talk about how Kara and Alex broke the rules and whether either of them were wrong to do so.
Miscommunication. It's a thing and having super powers doesn't mean you're exempt from experiencing occasional instances of forgetting how to communicate with others. In fact, I think it's a shared negative trait by almost everyone on Supergirl. The lack of talking things out came to a head in "Homecoming."
Family is important to Chyler Leigh. Fittingly, it’s also really important to Alex Danvers, her character on The CW’s Supergirl. As Kara Zor-El’s adoptive sister, Alex has been the Girl of Steel’s most important connection to her family here on Earth. However, that dynamic is set to change with the long-awaited return of Jeremiah Danvers in tonight’s pivotal new episode, “Homecoming.” Played by Lois and Clark’s Dean Cain, the girls’ once presumed dead father returns to his family and the D.E.O.
Is it ever too late to celebrate Valentine's Day? No.*
*Please note we cannot predict how your loved one will feel about celebrating the holiday after it's passed.
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.
Supergirl is back! Whew. The midseason break was nice because you know, holidays and stuff, but I'm glad Kara and co. are back on my television. I've missed them. They wasted no time jumping into action, as Kara and Mon-El took an out of this world trip—literally—to search for missing persons. My biggest takeaway from "Supergirl Lives" is that Kara's doing more than living—she's thriving.
