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 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.
