Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 8

“The Wrath of Rama Khan” Supergirl closes out the first half of season 5 with a battle for Lena’s soul and dangers coming from multiple fronts at once. This season has been really strange so far. It started with slow and deliberate mystery based plotting that has now shifted to rapid fired narrative movement bereft…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 7

“Tremors” Supergirl is all about reveals with the truth about Leviathan, Kara learning of Lena’s true intentions and J’Onn learning the true location of his brother. It’s amazing how much things can change in the space of a single episode. The previous outing did an admirable job showing the influence Leviathan has while still leaving…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 6

“Confidence Women” Supergirl delivers a Lena centric episode that chronicles the rise and fall of her friendship with Andrea while delivering insight into Andrea’s history. I’ve mentioned in prior reviews that scenes between Andrea and Lena are interesting because they are peers who challenge each other equally. Katie McGrath and Julie Gonzalo also convey their…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 5

“Dangerous Liaisons” Supergirl makes use of the newfound camaraderie found between Kara and William as the Leviathan plot gains some traction.

It’s getting to the stage where it’s difficult to imagine what can be brought to the table where they’re concerned at…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 4

“In Plain Sight” Supergirl says goodbye to a major character as J’Onn continues to deal with the threat of his brother and Kara learns more about William. It was announced a while ago that Mehcad Brooks would be leaving the series in order to pursue his own projects that he needs additional time for. It’s…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 3

“Blurred Lines” Supergirl has always placed a heavy importance on its interpersonal relationships, and this episode is almost entirely focused on that aspect, be it current relationships moving forwards or past ones being given new perspectives. In keeping with its title, the episode deals with lines between morality, and like the godawful and disgustingly misogynistic…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 2

“Stranger Beside Me” Supergirl continues its fifth season by focusing on the relationships that are at different stages and highlighting what isn’t known within them. The strength in this show is the ongoing relationships and how they develop over time. There are a lot of really outlandish elements at play but the interpersonal dynamics help…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 1

“Event Horizon” Supergirl returns for a fifth season with a new costume for Kara and the beginnings of a cautionary tale against society’s reliance on technology. It’s fair to say that this show has never been subtle in its approach to exploring topics. Normally the writers are very heavy handed in delivering their stance on…
