Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 18

“Crime and Punishment” Supergirl deals with the aftermath of the previous episode as Kara considers her place in the current state of affairs. Public opinion is a very fickle thing and the biggest challenge for Kara at the moment is altering the perception the public have of her after Lex Luthor staged a very brutal…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 17

“All About Eve” Supergirl picks up the pieces from Lex’ escape with the characters looking to focus on the weak link in his organisation in the hope of tracking him down. The weak link in Lex’ organisation is immediately identified as Eve. It’s unclear what makes her more exploitable than any other part of his…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 16

“The House of L” Supergirl devotes an episode to Lex and the Kara duplicate created at the end of last season and teased throughout this one. The Kasnian Kara plot has received such limited focus this season that I thought the writers had largely forgotten about it. It came across as a relic of a…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 15

“O Brother, Where Art Thou” Supergirl introduces Superman’s nemesis, Lex Luthor as J’Onn continues his relentless pursuit of Manchester Black. I’ve talked at length about how problematic the Manchester Black plot is. My main issue with it is how flimsy his motivation is and how little the writers seem to care about making this work….

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 14

“Stand and Deliver” Supergirl explores how powerful public opinion and peaceful protest can be in bringing about change during times of great societal tension.

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 12

“Menagerie” Supergirl delivers a belated Valentine’s Day episode featuring a heart eating symbiotic alien, a great deal of soul searching for Alex and Nia wrestling with what comes next. This show could rarely be described as subtle and episodes like this could be used as examples of how overt the writers can be in putting…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 11

“Blood Memory” Supergirl continues to deal with the story of Nia’s emerging powers and explores how they affect her relationship with her family. Nia Nal has been a great addition to the world of the show thanks in no small part to Nicole Maines’ constantly engaging portrayal of her. It was revealed early on that…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 10

“Suspicious Minds” Supergirl returns from hiatus to explore Kara’s recent dismissal from the DEO and the impact this has on the show as a whole. Kara separating from the DEO is a massive shift for this show as she has been working with that organisation since the beginning. It offered her considerable resources and acts…

Kneel Before Pod – Fast Travelling Nanites (108)

Supergirl season 4 is about to return and Kneel Before Pod is finally getting around to having a very brief conversation about it.
