Supergirl - Resist television review

The war for National City has begun. The first-half of Supergirl‘s Second Season finale sees old faces return as Rhea‘s (Teri Hatcher) invasion of National City gets underway. Run out of the DEO, Kara (Melissa Benoist) and her friends are forced into hiding. The near death of President Olivia Marsdin (Lynda Carter) not only reveals her secret to the group but also offers the return of Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) who stands tall providing a public distraction to give Supergirl the time needing to rescue Lena (Katie McGrath) and Mon-El (Chris Wood) from the Daxamite ship. To do so she’ll have to work alongside Lillian Luthor (Brenda Strong) in a makeshift peace destined for betrayal. By the end of the episode most of the plan has succeeded, but it turns out Rhea has one final surprise for Supergirl.

Supergirl - City Of Lost Children TV review

“City Of Lost Children” not only sets up the season’s final two episodes and reveals Rhea‘s (Teri Hatcher) master plan, but the episode also finds a way to center itself on a character who has become largely superfluous to the main storylines this season. The episode take a hard look at Superman’s black friend James “Don’t Call Me Jimmy” Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) and his vigilante actions as Guardian, but it also allows James to step-up in an entirely different way and, as J’onn (David Harewood) says, discover just what kind of man he is meant to be. Everything starts with Rhea using Lena (Katie McGrath) to build a mass transporter which both is the key to her revenge against Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and has the added benefit of making a certain segment of the alien go crazy including a young boy (Lonnie Chavis) who James befriends.

Supergirl - Alex television review

While the show’s B-story continues to slowly develop a relationship between Lena Luther (Katie McGrath) and Rhea (Teri Hatcher) leading into the show’s season finale, most of “Alex” is devoted to the abduction of Kara‘s (Melissa Benoist) sister by a childhood acquaintance who discovered her secret and now hopes to leverage it to get Supergirl to break his father (Gregg Henry) out of prison. How far will Supergirl go to save her sister?

Supergirl - Ace Reporter television review

iZombie‘s Rahul Kohli guest-stars as Lena Luther‘s (Katie McGrath) ex who shows up in National City to unveil a new technological marvel (which when not dazzling the press is murdering those who know too much about the project). Despite recent setbacks, Kara (Melissa Benoist) is all sunshine and rainbows (when not grief baking) as she steps up after learning Lena’s ex may be hiding some dangerous information about his new nanite technology. Putting both hers super-skills and reporter instincts to work, our heroine quickly uncovers the truth. By the end of the episode her friend may be battered and bruised, but the city will be safe, and Kara will have earned her spot at Catco in the aptly titled “Ace Reporter.”

Supergirl - Distant Son television review

When Mon-El‘s (Chris Wood) parents (Teri Hatcher, Kevin Sorbo) put an outrageous bounty out on Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) aliens begin attacking the Kryptonian, forcing Kara to reluctantly stand down. Hoping to convince them that Mon-El is better off on Earth, Kara meets with Rhea (Hatcher) and only survives a sneak attack by the queen thanks to Mon-El stepping in and agreeing to return to Daxam. The story’s main purpose is to show how much Mon-El has grown as a character, wiling to sacrifice himself and his own happiness for the woman he loves (who, despite orders not to engage the aliens, isn’t going to let Mon-El leave without a fight).
