The Flash – Season 3 Episode 17

“Duet” The Flash crosses over with Supergirl when Barry and Kara are put in a shared coma fantasy where life is an old timey musical. I’ll preface this by saying that this episode will definitely be a “mileage may vary” sort of episode as your enjoyment will largely depend on whether or not you like musicals….

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 16

“Star-Crossed” Supergirl reveals the truth about Mon’El when the mysterious aliens that have been pursuing him throughout the season finally make it to Earth. The truth about Mon’El’s origins could be one of the easiest to predict reveals in all of TV history. Ever since he was introduced I had absolutely no doubt that Mon’El…

“Homecoming” Supergirl stages a family reunion when Jeremiah Danvers is rescued from Cadmus under suspicious circumstances.

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 13

“Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk” Supergirl delivers a Valentine’s Day episode when a 5th dimensional being arrives looking to woo Kara into becoming his wife in exchange for Earth being left alone.

“The Martian Chronicles” Supergirl delivers on the White Martian threat from last week when M’Gann’s people come looking for her.

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 9

“Supergirl Lives” Supergirl Returns! From hiatus that is. Kara investigates a missing person’s case and ends up on an alien planet. Before I start the review I’ll open with a prediction that there will eventually be an episode of Supergirl called “Supergirl Returns” especially since the title of this episode, “Supergirl Lives” is a reference…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 8

“Medusa” Supergirl closes off its 2016 run with an alien killing virus that threatens every alien living in National City I must admit to being surprised that the Medusa tease paid off so quickly. Normally these things linger for a long time. For a clear example see the Myriad plot last season. The mystery surrounding…
