Supergirl – Make it Reign (3×22)

Published

on

This season of Supergirl has been all over the place but the one consistency, the one focal point, the one villain has always been Reign.

Now, the DEO is gearing up for the final battle against the Worldkillers the Dark Priestess and the Daughters of the Night.

Selena and her villainous gal pals stole Kara’s ship and landed at the Fortress Sanctuary where they revealed their true mission to Coville, the moronic human helping them — to terraform planet Earth as the New Krypton?

Yeah, definitely not a good time for Supergirl to be sending out her “on vacation” office message. That’s what she gets for allowing naivety to set in and believing that Reign could be so easily snuffed out from Sam.

Unable to touch the rock of Harun El, they use Coville as they gather for the rebirth of Reign, just as the prophecy foretold. But before they can manage that, they need the blood of the other two Word killers.

Again, stupid Coville is like “hey, let me show you where you can get it” and leads them right to the DEO where everyone is busy trying to figure out why Sam is getting so weak again.

Meanwhile, on planet Argo, Supergirl enlists the help of Alura and Mon-El to find a way back to Earth so she can warn her people about the impending threat.

The writers continuously stressed that Argo was unable to contact planet Earth in any way and then somehow, magically, they are able to use a hologram crystal to communicate with Winn and Alex. Something tells me that if Kara’s mother really wanted to find her, she would have done so. Or is she really this tech illiterate?

The DEO isn’t completely defenseless but it is without its two biggest fighters Supergirl and J’onn. The latter is performing The Reach with his father who is ready to transfer over all of his memories and the thoughts of his predecessors onto his son.

Yes, most of the focus was on the rise of Reign and the three dark Kryptonians coming for blood, literally, but the addition of M’yrnn’s final moments, or at least what we thought would be his final moments, was oddly fitting.

I was balling my eyes out when M’yrnn was saying his goodbye’s to Alex and explaining that he knew J’onn was home because of the people he was surrounded with.

Of course, it was obvious that The Reach would never be completed because, despite their best efforts, Selena was able to get her hands on the blood of the other World Killer’s and revive Reign.

Thankfully, by that time, Supergirl, Mon-El and even Alura portal jumped back home too. Again, if it was that easy, why haven’t we been doing this?

Supergirl may have left her home and her family defenseless by traveling to Argo, but it gave everyone a chance to shine including Demos who unfortunately died defending planet Earth.

Winn took it pretty hard considering he built the shield which failed him in battle. But Winn, this is no time to lash out at yourself — they need everyone to get their head in the game to stand a chance of defeating Reign and saving Sam and themselves from “natural” disasters that aren’t natural at all.

We’re talking seismic catastrophes! And an earthquake in National City seems to be phase one of the hell Reign is unleashing at the core of the Earth.

Will M’yrnn’s shape-shifting actually protect them? And is it worth risking his life before the completion of The Reach?

It seems that for M’yrnn to die a noble death, this is his only choice.

Sam is tucked away in Dark Krypton but that doesn’t mean she’s safe at all. As the voices can be heard saying, “they are coming for her.”

Their only hope in defeating Reign is to get infinite strength from the Fountains of Lilith. Will she find those on Dark Krypton?

And Coville? Well, he should have seen his death coming from miles away in his books and readings. How could he be stupid enough to think that they would be loyal to him because he helped them out? What more could a mere human offer them when the whole point was the remove all human form from the Earth?

Other Thoughts

  • Mon-El and Winn bonding about girls was everything. Mon-El has shied away from his feelings for Kara for much of this season in hopes of suppressing them. Agreeably, the timing isn’t right as Earth is in danger and that’s their number one priority. Supergirl never lost sight of that, but you can’t blame her for also giving into her human side which she has developed while being raised on this planet.
  • I’ve read so many negative comments from fans who think Supergirl is weaker because she fell in love. Why? What’s with the notion that love makes us weaker? She’s still a badass superhero but she also has room in her heart for romance. And yes, Mon-El is married but Kara isn’t exactly a homewrecker. She didn’t pursue him out of respect for Imra and the only reason they are together now is because Imra gave him permission to explore the feelings.
  • Alex meeting Kara’s mom was monumental, however, there is still something off to me about Alura.
  • I enjoyed some boy talk between Kara and her mom. She had a new mom on Earth but this is also something she never thought she’d ever have.
  • How has Lena not figured out that Supergirl = Kara? Why would Supergirl’s mother be so overjoyed about meeting Alex?
  • I love that Ruby is more involved now that she knows the whole truth about what is inside her mother. She’s her strength and is able to protect her. Heck, I’d argue that she’s the one person that can save her mother and get through to her, even in the darkest of times.

How do you think the battle between Supergirl vs. Reign will end? The series has made it a point to drive home the fact that they will no longer be using lethal force and in a promo for next week, Supergirl states that she does not kill, not even “her.”

Will there be another choice? Will they save Sam? Who will make the ultimate sacrifice?

Supergirl – The Quest for Peace (4×22)

Supergirl -- "The Quest for Peace" Review

A great episode concludes a political, divisive and explosive season of Supergirl.

Don’t you love it when storylines come full circle making a questionable season worth watching?

Lex Luthor enacted his maniacal plan on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 22 only to lose to yet another Kryptonian.

Supergirl meant it when she said that truth and justice always prevail.

Though a glossy cape and perfect hair sure do help.

Lex willingly hurt hundreds of people and betrayed a whole country in his efforts for world domination.

Yes, it was fun to watch Jon Cryer in the role and he exceeded expectations, but Lex had it coming.

However, by the end of the episode, we’re all asking, “is Lex really dead?”

Killing Lex Luthor with one bullet seemed a little too easy, even if the trigger was pulled by his sister, Lena.

For a moment, I was shocked that the series would get rid of Lex so quickly and on such a permanent level.

Instead, the final few seconds saw the return of The Monitor, who we saw on the crossover “Crisis on Earth X.”

After Monitor brought forth one of Supergirl Season 5’s newest villains, J’onn J’onzz brother, he paid Lex a visit and it seemed like his intention was to revive him for some unfinished business.

I think Lex needs to be revived solely for a proper Superman duel; it would be a shame if they didn’t utilize Tyler Hoechlin for something so epic.

A piece of advice to the Monitor — aligning with Lex Luthor is a huge mistake. Just ask all those people burned by him on the finale!

Lex only cares about himself and disposes of people when they no longer serve a purpose.

Case and point: Ben Lockwood, Eve, and Red Daughter.

Even President Baker falls into the category.

All of them learned what is what like to be chewed up and spit up by Lex.

I’m surprised that President Baker was even allowed to make Lex the Secretary of Alien Affairs. Wouldn’t someone in the House or the Senate halt the President?

Despite Lex’s one “heroic” deed, he’s still Lex Luthor.

Supergirl – Red Dawn (4×21)

Supergirl Red Dawn review

Much like Supergirl, the series sucked up the sunlight and found it’s power on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 21.

The penultimate episode was everything we’ve been wanting from this entire season.

Supergirl has this tendency to deliver a muddled and lackluster season that draws storylines for way to long only to come back swinging in the last few episodes.

The only reason I remained hooked throughout the entirety of the season is because I know they’ll end the season on a high note that makes it all worth it.

Kara’s capture at the hands of President Baker didn’t last long.

She was able to break free from the Red Daughter’s grip just in time to help the DEO track her evil clone down.

Lena also warned the DEO about everything they found in Kaznia, and let’s say, they all had their work cut out for them.

But even with all the newfound information, Supergirl’s team was simply playing catch-up to Lex.

Lex’s plans have been meticulously crafted and already set in motion.

Supergirl’s efforts to foil his operation weren’t successful, especially since he had the President on his side.

Lex found a way to accomplish the one thing he’s always been after — becoming the hero in his narrative.

By the end of the action-packed episode, Lex successfully thwarted Kaznia’s invasion on American soil, killed “Supergirl” and was hailed as a hero by the President.

Yeah, where do they go from here?

How does Supergirl’s team convince the already impressionable public that Lex is a criminal mastermind who created a clone of Supergirl and went through all this trouble just to stroke his own ego?

The one thing Supergirl and friends have going for the fact that Supergirl is still alive.

It’s a surprise element considering the Red Daughter assumed she was victorious in taking her doppelganger down.

That is if Lex actually killed the Red Daughter in the “battle.”

Was she a martyr this whole time? Or is she still alive?

If she is alive, there’s a chance she’ll align with Supergirl and friends to take down Lex once she realizes he lied to her.

There was a part of Red Daughter that craved to be normal.

When she saw Alex and Eliza distraught over Supergirl’s “death,” she felt something. The same something she felt for Mikhail and the feeling she had reading Lex’s books.

She’s been brainwashed by Lex to believe that Supergirl is evil and protects the corrupt, but what she’s been spoon-fed is true about Lex instead.

He’s the one that’s been selling her snake oil!

Supergirl – Will The Real Miss Tessmacher Please Stand Up? (4×20)

Supergirl Will The Real Miss Tessmacher Please Stand Up? Review

How long can a girl be kept in the dark?

We’re on the fourth season and Lena still doesn’t know that Kara is Supergirl!

There have been so many close-call situations, several on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 20 alone, yet Supergirl somehow manages to maneuver them without revealing her identity to one of her best friends.

And she finally came so close — Kara took off her glasses and was about to tell Lena the truth.

I kept screaming “turn around Lena,” but alas, the moment was ruined by Lena inadvertently guilt tripping Kara.

Understandably, Lena is in a fragile headspace after being betrayed by Tess and Lex.

Finding out that her only stable friend has also been lying straight to her face day in and day out might have sent her off the deep end.

But she deserves to know!

And think of how much easier everything would be if Lena wasn’t always worrying about Kara!

Since they are working so closely together, Lena being clued into Kara’s alter-ego would allow them to accomplish so much more.

Initially, Lena would be angry, but I think she’d be astute enough to realize the difference between Kara’s lies and Lex and Tess’ lies.

Kara has kept her identity a secret to protect her loved ones.

And in continuing to lie, she’s doing what she thinks is best for Lena. There’s nothing menacing about her actions.
