Supergirl – For Good (3×12)

Published

on

Anyone else really irritated that this week’s episode of Supergirl didn’t make any progress on the Worldkillers?

In fact, they, and Reign took a backseat for a Lena and Edge showdown; a showdown no one asked for.

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve seen Edge. He’s taken a backburner as National City’s most despised person because you know, there’s an actual threat looming over the city that not even Supergirl knows how to control.

He returns in full-asshole mode, slurring threats at Lena simply because she’s related to the Luthor’s. Karma bites him in the ass almost immediately as his car starts driving itself and goes off of a bridge before exploding in the air. There’s a Polish proverb that states, “zlego diabli nie wezma.” The literal translation is “the devil doesn’t take the bad,” and it most definitely rings true in this situation.

Edge takes Lena’s last words to him: “burn in hell,” as an admission of guilt. He creeps up on them during a news meeting at CatCo to basically tell her he’s going to retaliate until one of them is dead. Sure sounds like a threat to me.

The moment was so threatening, no one seemed to notice Kara’s super-speedy reflexes. She caught fricking glass in mid-air with her back turned to him, people!

Roughly 5-minutes later, Lena collapses to the ground, foaming at the mouth. You would think being surrounded by Supergirl and Guardian, they would have predicted the outcome as I did, but nope.

Kara flies Lena over to the DEO in her regular-person clothes, which correct me if I’m wrong, is a first for the series. Alex gets to show off her medical skills for the second time this hour, the first being while performing a CAT scan on Sam, which we’ll get to in a minute.

Putting Lena in hypothermia stops the poison from reaching her brain and heart and before you know it, she’s awake on the couch at CatCo and ready to get her revenge.

James — who isn’t your ordinary news editor because if he was, they’d be on the list of hottest male professions ahead of cops and firefighters — reveals that the cart barista was shot down by a dissolving bullet.

Lena recognizes that as a product of LexCorp and she follows the breadcrumbs to the real culprit: her mother.

Anyone else happy to see mommy dearest? Same. I’ve never found Lillian to be a compelling villain. She’s more of a pest, one that Lena can’t seem to shake, even though she’s been able to separate herself from virtually every Luthor entity.

Lillian tries desperately to convince Lena to embrace her killer genetics and just take Edge out. We all know what it’s like to hate someone so much, it would be better if they just seized to exist. But sane people don’t act on those emotions; they find another way.

Which is exactly what Lena does. And she enlists Kara to help. Now, at this point, I’m convinced Lena is 100% aware that Kara = Supergirl. How could she not be? It’s an insult to us viewers to expect us to believe that Lena is this airheaded.

And while she’s at it, she has to know that her BF James is Guardian. It’s just too ironic that whenever the two superheroes are around, Kara and James aren’t.

Kara and Lena crash the Park Conservatory Blake Tie Gala, where Lillian plans to take him out.

Lena informs him that either he admits that he wanted to kill her, or she gives her mom the “go-ahead” to do her dirty work. As the strike zone gets closer, Edge confesses although honestly, I don’t think he’s responsible.

Lillian isn’t pleased with her daughter’s decision to spare him and she suits up in the Lexosuit to finish him off. It seems a bit excessive considering her target is Edge, but whatever, do your thing, Lillian. I guess this is how she defines bonding-time with her daughter.

Supergirl drops in to take care of business and Mon-El joins the fight because he “has her back.” At this point, Mon-El is that annoying ex you just can’t seem to shake no matter what because he believes that you can be “just friends.” Hate aside, his idea of hacking Lillian’s drone and using them against her is pretty brilliant, but since when is he prancing around the DEO making calls? I’m not liking this. Stay humble.

Once Lillian is shot down, Guardian prevents Edge from escaping with the confession. In a world where the DEO exist, can you believe they are still using voice records?

So all’s well that ends well.

Except there’s still Sam, who confessed to Lena and Kara about the blackout’s she’s been having after all of her tests come back positive.

On a relatable note, we’re all Sam looking up our symptoms on WebMD and declaring that it’s “brain tumor” bad. Cardinal rule #1: don’t look up your symptoms. Plus, Google isn’t able to diagnose you with “Worldkiller” syndrome… yet.

So like I said, Alex played doctor to help out Sam and found nothing unusual. Sam then broke down informing her besties that since she was young, she’s always had to take care of herself. She also expresses concern about who would take care of Ruby if something were to happen to her. Foreshadowing? I hope not because I truly like this girl gang we’ve built.

But, Regin is a problem. And if we have to neutralize the problem to save the world then bye-bye Sam. And like I’ve been predicting, Alex will adopt Ruby and it’ll be the child she’s always wanted to have.

I wonder why it hasn’t occurred to Sam that maybe, whatever is happening with her has to do with the fact that she crash-landed on this Earth in a pod. You’d think that would be something she’d mention, given the villain uptick in National City. Unless Sam doesn’t even know about Reign because she’s always gone when she’s wrecking havoc.

It dawned on me just how different Reign and Sam really are. Sam doesn’t want to be a burden to her friends and family, she doesn’t want to cause trouble and is so anti-violence, she cringes at the sight of a needle. Reign on the other hands thrives off of it and bringing people to justice; she’s the complete opposite, yet they are the same person.

At least we identified one of the two World Killers thanks to Winn. Now, to get to her before Reign does.

Other Thoughts

  • How long has it been since Sam told Alex about her blackouts? How did Alex’s leg heal so fast? It as if it was never broken.
  • “I don’t have to kill you, you’re already dead Lena.” – Edge. That spoke to me because that’s how I feel sometimes.
  • “Why would you be Cat Grant when you could be Lena Luthor.” Fair point mom. But I do appreciate the subtle reminders that Cat Grant is irreplaceable.
  • I’m glad that despite all the temptation, Lena has chosen to remain inherently good. Being friends with Kara and James shows her that good prevails over evil.
  • Edge’s car is the byproduct of robots taking over the world. It’s scary and it’s unavoidable.
  • I’m done with these Mon-El scenes. For the past few episodes, there has been one scene where the two exes meet at the DEO and re-hash their day with Mon-El telling Kara “he understands this must be hard.” Frustrating much?
  • James should dangle more people from bridges, just saying.

Supergirl Elseworld's Part Three

I come to you bearing the third installment of the Elseworld’s three-night crossover.

The third part, Supergirl Season 4 Episode 9, was the darkest installment in Elseworld’s, but for a reason — it was the one where Deegan’s “bigger” plan came to fruition.

The previous episodes, mainly The Flash Season 5 Episode 9, set the scene for what was to come while focusing more on the lighter tone from the overly debated Freaky Friday/Quantum Leap body swap between Oliver and Barry.

Things aren’t looking up for Ben Lockwood.

After what transpired on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 7, Lockwood has an even bigger target on his back.

What else could he have expected after becoming the Agent of Liberty? He’s willingly killing aliens and spreading fake news about Supergirl to turn the masses against her.

Supergirl - Call to Action

If it hadn’t been for the latter half of Supergirl Season 4 Episode 6, this episode would have been a complete waste.

However, Alex made a few Harry Potter references and Supergirl fought a dragon so all was not wasted.

It’s pretty evident that Supergirl Season 4 is moving at a glacial pace and steering towards one goal: the civil war with the aliens.
