Supergirl - The Fanatical television review

With Reign (Odette Annable) locked away and Lena (Katie McGrath) working on a cure, Supergirl‘s (Melissa Benoist) attention is turned to the followers of Thomas Coville who have turned to Reign for their deliverance and have been using Kryptonian texts to secretly create a weapon capable of creating a new world killer. Protecting one member of the cult (Nesta Cooper) from the others puts Superman’s black friend James “Don’t Call Me Jimmy” Olsen‘s (Mehcad Brooks) secret identity in jeopardy which leads to one of the actor’s best scenes of the series while explaining the racism he has dealt with his entire life and why being Guardian means so much to him.

Supergirl - Shelter from the Storm TV review

“Shelter from the Storm” proves to be a pretty anti-climactic end to the Reign (Odette Annable) saga as the now triple-powered super-villain goes looking for Ruby (Emma Tremblay) who Lena (Katie McGrath has hidden. Eventually Reign finds the daughter of her human half, with plans to kill Ruby and vanquish Sam. Only with help form both Lena and Mon-El (Chris Wood), and advice from M’yrnn (Carl Lumbly) – in a subplot that feels particularly shoehorned in, is Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) able to halt her path. With Reign defeated, at least for now, it looks like the remainder of the season will deal with carnage and fallout she caused including turning Lena and Supergirl against each other.

“Let me get this straight, you want me to broadcast your consciousness into a magical dark valley dimension using the 31st Century technology which allowed me to access your mind when Reign punched you into a coma, technology specifically designed to enter human consciousness, not alternate realms, and you want me to do this all before the solar eclipse achieves totality which will happen in less than two hours.”

Supergirl - Trinity television review

With the trio of world killers united, Kara (Melissa Benoist) calls on the help of Brainiac-5 (Jesse Rath) to use Legion technology and send the Girl of Steel, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and Lena (Katie McGrath) into the dark dimension where Sam‘s (Odette Annable) consciousness is trapped along with the human consciousness of the other killers which are slowly dying. Unable to be sure that she can trust Lena, Supergirl enlists the help of Guardian (Mehcad Brooks) to confirm the Luthor stockpile of Kryptonite (which Lena was using to keep Reign sedated) has been extinguished as Lena claims… which sounds like just the kind of really bad idea that could be the first domino to fall in Luthor villain turn.

Supergirl - Of Two Minds television review

When first animals and then humans start to show signs of being infected by Pestilence (Angela Zhou), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) butts heads with Saturn Girl (Amy Jackson) over what to do once they find the final world killer. While the Maid of Might believes Pestilence can be reasoned with, the Legionnaire instead wants to end the threat permanently before it grows powerful enough to become the creature that destroys the future. Meanwhile, Lena (Katie McGrath) continues working with Sam (Odette Annable) in attempts to prevent Reign from resurfacing and taking over her body once more.

Supergirl - In Search of Lost Time TV review

The common theme of loss of control plays out in both storylines of “In Search of Lost Time.” M’yrnn‘s (Carl Lumbly) mental deterioration begins to effect those closest to him when the Martian’s mental exercises begin pushing out intensive emotional waves that turn DEO coworkers against each other and Suprgirl (Melissa Benoist) against Mon-El (Chris Wood). Speaking of Mon-El, the episode gives us the first look at his Legion super-hero suit (not too shabby) along with some cape training with Kara (which, while effective, still looks pretty damn goofy). Although the psychic blast pushes Kara into letting out some aggression on her former boyfriend, it also appears to have finally cleared the air between the two, and just in time because it appears the third Kryptonian threat has finally decided to make an appearance.
