TV Review: Supergirl (Season 4, Episode 2)
Share This Article:
It’s been a while since I was this excited for an episode of Supergirl. My hopes were high from the last episode and thankfully, this episode didn’t disappoint! It’s like the writers have suddenly regained their mojo after whatever mess season 3 was! I’m going to begin with my favourite part of the episode, the part I’ve been anticipating since the writers screwed it up last season – Supergirl and Lena’s friendship!
Image courtesy of the CWLena and Kara’s friendship has been going strong since season 2 (AKA the best choice Supergirl made), but somehow, Supergirl herself was very out of character last season, which meant that they had both lost faith in one another (and the writers ruined a very important strong female friendship, but whatever, I guess...) However, Supergirl redeems herself and saves Lena’s life, which technically doesn’t confirm anything, but Lena smiled at her, so, progress…? Speaking of, that scene was hilarious. I didn’t know I needed a scene of Kara trying to leave Lena’s side as Mercy Graves breaks into L-Corp until now. Kara ‘sneezing’ and literally blowing the bad guys away? Kara pretending Alex rang her to use her superhearing? Kara catching bullets with her hands? I died! Either Lena knows that Kara is Supergirl, or she is just super oblivious (the puns just create themselves, I swear). I’m just glad my weekly dose of Supercorp has now been reinstated. I mean, when Kara said “the Luthor name doesn’t deserve Lena”, I may or may not have screamed – things have to be cool between them again, surely? The writers better not screw it up by hinting at Lena’s non-existent evilness… This episode mainly focused on the repercussions of National City after finding out their president is an alien.
