Supergirl - Make It Reign television review

Setting up next week’s season finale, “Make It Reign” features Selena (Anjali Jay) and her disciples on Earth working to restore their world killer. Despite the illusion of being destroyed, Reign (Odette Annable) still exists and is tied to Sam. As the Kryptonian witches (which, despite being immensely powerful, are as ridiculous as they sound) resurrect their creation, Sam’s health worsens. And with Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and Mon-El (Chris Wood) stuck Argo, things are looking pretty bleak for Earth, especially after the Kryptonians raid the DEO to get their hands on the final ingredient needed to bring back Reign.

Supergirl - Not Kansas television review

“Not Kansas” opens with the defeat of Reign (Odette Annable) and Lena purging the Kryptonian alter-ego and saving Sam. The episode ends with a new Kryptonian threat as those behind Reign’s existence show up on Earth and restore her citadel. In between, he latest episode of Supergirl offers two main stories. The first of these centers around Kara (Melissa Benoist) deciding to return to Argo with Mon-El (Chris Wood) and spend some time with her mother (Erica Durance). The other centers around weapons designed for the DEO hitting the streets and into the hands of an unstable lawyer with plans to use them against his former company.

Supergirl - Dark Side of the Moon television review

Searching for substance that can separate Reign (Odette Annable) from Sam leads Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Mon-El (Chris Wood) to an asteroid that isn’t an asteroid at all. What they find is the Kryptonian city of Argo floating in space thanks to the use of the very same material they need to stop Reign. The season finally offers a payoff to the show recasting Kara’s mother as Supergirl encounters Alura Zor-El (Erica Durance) alive and well on Argo. Despite the citizens needing the precious material to stay safe in space, Alura and Kara argue decisively for a sample to save the Earth. Kara meeting the council also answers the question to just who is behind Reign’s creation, although only for the audience.

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.
