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.

Justice League Action - Keeping up with the Kryptonians TV review

The second straight episode featuring Mr. Mxyzptlk (Gilbert Gottfried) toying with DC heroes, “Keeping up with the Kryptonians” is of interest for finding a way to incorporate the Red Son Superman into the series. Toying with the idea of alternate realities, Mr. Mxyzptlk alters the history of both Superman (Jason J. Lewis) and Supergirl (Joanne Spracklen) sending the Man of Steel to be raised in Eastern Europe and the Maid of Might to be raised in Hollywood. As Kara turns into a popular, if vapid, celebrity, the Kryptonian becomes the lead warrior for an invading army.

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.

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #37 comic reviewThe Scooby Gangs heads to Midvale in Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #37 where Supergirl is being haunted the ghosts of her Kryptonian family. Revealing her identity to Mystery, Inc., the Maid of Might asks for the team’s help in solving a mystery that turns out to be a hoax by Nasthalthia Luthor in order to prove that Linda is Supergirl.

While the team works on solving the mystery and providing some misdirection to keep the niece of Lex Luthor from discovering the truth about Supergirl’s real identity, a good portion of the comic features dust-ups between Scooby-Doo and Supergirl’s cat Streaky. Exposed to the same odd version of Kryptonite that gave the super-cat its powers, Scooby gets some temporary powers of his own which come in handy later in the issue to thwart the villain’s scheme.
