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. It’s a little bizarre having a Valentine’s Day themed episode the week after the day itself but there’s no denying that this episode allows…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 12

“Luthors” Supergirl explores Lena’s relationship with her mother as the time for her trial comes around and Lena’s loyalties are tested once again. In Superman lore the Luthor dynasty is always one of the most interesting aspects. We have seen a variety of interpretations of the Luthor family tree over the years but some level…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 11

“The Martian Chronicles” Supergirl delivers on the White Martian threat from last week when M’Gann’s people come looking for her. The ongoing Martian story is one of the more interesting aspects of this show. J’Onn is a really tragic character who is almost entirely defined by loss and the introduction of M’Gann represents hope that…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 10

“We Can Be Heroes” Supergirl brings back an old enemy while Mon’El tries to figure out the basics of being a hero and James continues to suggest that his role as Guardian is a good idea. This is an episode that lets some of the lesser used characters take some of the focus after a…

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…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 7

“The Darkest Place” Supergirl develops the Cadmus story as James struggles with his new role as a vigilante when he is accused of murder. Cadmus has been hanging over the show since last season with the promise of Dean Cain’s Jeremiah Danvers still being alive. They have been behind a lot of the villains this…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 6

“Changing” Supergirl introduces long running Superman villain, Parasite as Alex struggles with her feelings for Maggie, Mon’El has trouble deciding what to do with his life and James starts his vigilante career. This was a really busy episode that had to keep a lot of plates spinning in order to maintain its momentum. It definitely…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 5

“Crossfire” Supergirl continues developing the Alien Amnesty storyline when a group of criminals threaten National City with alien weapons. I’ve mentioned before that this show feels very different in its second season and the changes have mostly been positive. Intensifying the alien angle has been great for Supergirl on a thematic level. Even if the…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 4

“Survivors” Supergirl continues building the alien subculture angle with an alien fight club discovered in National City. It seems like every genre show must have a fight club episode at some point. To date The Flash and Arrow are yet to do one but Torchwood and Smallville both did this episode and now Supergirl follows…
