Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 14

“The Bodyguard” Supergirl doubles down on the horrors of technology with the imminent release of Andrea’s lenses and acceleration of Lena’s pacification project. This season is supposed to be about the growth of technology and the potential problems that can cause for us as a species. It’s an issue that’s wide open to commentary as…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 13

“It’s a Super Life” Supergirl celebrates 100 episodes with a trip down memory lane to explore how the world would be impacted if Kara was honest with Lena earlier. It’s very much the norm at this point for Arrowverse shows to revisit the past in some way when celebrating its 100th episode. Arrow did this…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 12

“Back from the Future Part 2” Supergirl further explores the perils of technology when every piece of tech in the D.E.O. turns against them and Lena moves ever closer to achieving her goal. One thing the Arrowverse has never been good at is using technology properly. Whether it’s the internet being housed inside a warehouse…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 11

“Back From the Future – Part 1” Supergirl welcomes back an old friend as a psycho killer threatens National City using very familiar means. It’s often the case that I don’t realise how much a character is missed until they come back. Winn was part of the core cast for three seasons and was a…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 10

“The Bottle Episode” Supergirl explores the new world that the characters now inhabit as they all try to find their place within it. “Crisis on Infinite Earths” ended with a monumental shift for the Arrowverse as we know it.

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. 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.
