Of course, they could still do something different with the "mystical connection", she doesn't have to be a superhero in this version. We'll see.

Spoiler:
Okay, that was a big whoa with what happened to Miss Teschmacher. Is she completely subsumed by Hope or is she still in there? I guess they are going hard on Lena's vengeful nature.

Decent episode. Really liked Alex's part. Worried J'onn is going to be sidelined for more vision quest b!#&&+~@. They either need to use him or if they can't afford it, let him go. I don't want him to go, but I got tired of him sitting in meditation all day last season.

Kara should just leave CatCo. They make bank on having a Pulitzer winning writer, it's their loss if she goes. (plus I have never been impressed with how they write about journalism-based stories... Kara was wanting to write her own biased unresearched schlock a couple seasons ago, now she's the champion of ethics?). Yes, yes, Kara being plucky and stubborn blah blah blah. I hope she invested her $15,000 prize money wisely.

@DeathQuaker, I agree with you that Alex did a great part. I also agree that they are wasting great asset in J'onn. The writers keep forgetting he is a near Batman level detective with Superman like powers. He is one of my favorite Justice League but they need to use him more.

I agree that Kara should just leave Catco. The transition from writing unresearched biased pieces to demanding journalistic integrity is a pretty normal growth pattern for real world journalists. So I am not having a problem with her growth. Bottom line on Kara staying at Catco is no Krytonian needs a job. She could easily just live with the DEO or take over their old facility in the desert or even take over an abandoned island somewhere. If both she and Superman need the identity for social contact, then there are not too many jobs she would not excel at.

When I was briefly a journalist, I pushed for integrity from the get go. Of course I had to work to remove bias from my writing but I was well aware of that. My teachers and editors taught me well. (I am not saying I was a good reporter, just that was an issue I was aware of and pushed for from the beginning.) Maybe it's different now with so many people getting bad examples from the Internet.

Catco worked best when Cat Grant was around. It feels like it has served its purpose and then some. Kara's big concern was "needing a life" outside of superheroing. Given she has a solid network of friends she really has that regardless of work. As you say, she could do anything. Including hire a lawyer to get her out of her contract.

It shouldn't even be hard to get out of said contract, because an extension that is not signed by both parties can't be binding


Well regardless of whether or not she leaves, I do think we're going to find out more about her boss as the season moves on.

But that move by Lena...DAMN that was cold.


It is sad to see Lena become the sister Lex always wanted. I really don't see her turning from the darkness. Somewhere, either during or after the crisis crossovers, I expect Lena and Lex reuniting and becoming a team.

While this is not to deny Lena's dark turn, she killed Lex herself. She REALLY hates him. While it's not impossible--Lex is awfully manipulative--Lena is unlikely to join forces with Lex.

I also think she may still realize she's on a collision course with evil, but the question is will she be forgiven--and it becomes increasingly likely not.


I had forgotten about Lena killing Lex at the end of last season. So no super genius team up. I hope you are right about her realizing she is going to the dark side quickly. It would be nice if one Luthor was on Team Good.

Lex was ressurected by the (anti?) Monitor at the end of the season, and is going to be in Crisis, so who knows if they team up or not. Regardless, his death won't be a blocker.


Well it might not be a blocker to the whole "Will they team up to save the Multiverse?" but I doubt they'll go full on "Sibling Team Evil" together.

Also I'm still wondering if Lena isn't in over her head with the whole Leviathan thing. But we'll see.

As for redeeming Lena? Maybe...but I wouldn't hold out that much hope right now.

For clarification's sake, I wasn't saying they wouldn't team up because he's dead (as indeed he isn't). I'm saying there are odds against them teaming up because Lena hates Lex enough to have killed him, and Lex tends to hold grudges (he might be proud of Lena for killing him, but he'd still also be mad).

Plus if they end go agreeing on something, Lena might get the flash of insight she's been headed down a darker path than she's allowed herself to acknowledge.

Now maybe in Crisis, there's A Lena that may team up with A Lex, but I would be surprised if the ones as written did, unless the writers do some serious character development gymnastics.


In any case, we'll see if Lena is ready to do "Can I save the multiverse?"

Lena running into a darker Lena from another Earth who is full-on evil, more Lex than Lex, could be the splash of cold water she needs to recognize her own behavior going over the line, and lead to her deciding to rein it in before she goes too far.

Or something else could occur, she could meet a dispirited Lena from another Earth whose best friend Kara is dead, and never recovered from that loss. She could meet a shiny happy Lena who has much less betrayal issues and tons of friends and is living her best life, and feel annoyed that this could have been her if she could just let it go. She could die and get replaced by a different Lena from another Earth (which sounds all too WB, quick, abandon the character we wrote into a corner, and replace them with an AU version that everyone just pretends is the original Harrison Wells / Laurel Lance, and avoids ever mentioning the one that died!).

Eh, I'm not sure that Crisis will have time to dive deep into Supergirl-show-specific issues, or that Lena will even get to do more than cameo in it. It's got a ton of cameos to (fan)service, and various Arrow and Flash storylines to wrap up.

She's in the Supergirl Crisis teaser, so I imagine she'll at least be in the Supergirl episode of the crossover

Cool! I was wondering if this was going to be one of those 'crossovers' that mostly happens on the Arrow/Flash 'Earth 1' with only a visit from Supergirl, and no other characters from her Earth. I liked it better when there's more 'crossover' (such as when Alex hooked up with Sara Lance).

With the Earth 1 people not having a famous Superman or infamous Lex Luthor, it's amusing that none of them will necessarily have any preconceptions about the Luthor name, and Lena, who is always on the backfoot about people's expectations because of her family name, it going to be meeting a bunch of heroes who have no idea what she's so defensive about. :)


Set,

Well maybe not but I'm pretty sure that while Lex isn't a huge name, perhaps Lionel was. I mean we dunno. I do know this; Lena clearly upped her acting game AND I still can't figure out how Brainy and Alex got out of that place at the end.

But I guess we'll see if Monitor does something to spin this around. We'll see.

RPG Superstar 2015 Top 8

I stopped watching halfway through last night, bored, and apparently I missed all the amazing. I'll go back and watch during the hiatus.


DQ,

I wouldn't say this was the best Supergirl episode, but it had some pathos towards the end with Lena and Kara.
