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. Clandestine -and often ancient- organisations are a dime a dozen within the Arrowverse. 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…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 21

“Red Dawn” Supergirl finally brings Kara face to face with her evil twin as Ben Lockwood begins to realise that he is yet another pawn in Lex’ master plan. This season of Supergirl has certainly been eventful, perhaps too eventful. Anti-alien tensions have dominated the storytelling but within that there existed a confusingly problematic Manchester…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 20

“Will the Real Miss Tessmacher Please Stand Up” Supergirl continues with Kara and Lena’s investigation into Lex Luthor’s plans as Ben Lockwood’s anti-alien stance ramps up following the death of his wife. I’ve said in many reviews that one of the greatest assets this show has is the Kara/Lena friendship. It’s so rich and interesting…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 19

“American Dreamer” Supergirl focuses on Kara as the journalist as Nia picks up the superhero slack and Brainy helps James process his trauma. I’ve previously criticised this show for not giving enough attention to the non costumed side of Kara’s double life. Since season 1 finished and the show moved to the CW the CatCo…

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…
