Supergirl – Shelter From the Storm (3×18)

Reign’s end isn’t near on Supergirl. 

After sucking up the powers of her sisters, Purity and Pestilence, Reign had no qualms about cashing in on James and Lena’s romantic morning to demand Ruby’s location.

After all, if she stands any chance of destroying the last smidge of humanity within her that is Sam, she has to destroy the one thing she’s holding onto which is her daughter.

Lena uses kryptonite to subdue Reign which obviously is frowned upon by Supergirl, but James tries to convince Lena that she has to tell Supergirl the truth. Yes, kryptonite is her poison but he also thinks she’d be really happy to have a tool that could defend Regin.

James wasn’t wrong, but Supergirl’s initial reaction to being told someone is mass producing her murder weapon isn’t exactly pleasant. Look, considering the Luthors’ past history with kryptonite, I’m not surprised she’s so skeptical, even if it is Lean. Friends can turn their back on your in a heartbeat.

Lena eventually tells Alex where Ruby secret location, one where no one will find her — Lex’s invisible mansion.

Alex pays Ruby a little visit but refuses to tell her anything about her mother which really only makes the 12-year-old more curious. Kids know when you’re lying to them.

Ruby steals Alex’s phone and sneaks out to phone her mom. She leaves her a voicemail beginning her to come back which Regin picks up.

Within minutes, she’s uncovered the location and infiltrated it. Despite all the fancy technology that would take down mostly anyone, Reign walks through bullets, fire and more without even being phased; it looked like she was going through a car wash in all honesty.

Even though Sam is still in there somewhere, Reign has a strong hold on her as we witnessed when she stabbed her mother, Patricia. Granted, her mother was never all that loving but still, she was trying to make amends with her daughter and be there for her this time.

Sadly, it was too late. Before she died, she made Supergirl promised to tell Sam she was sorry and tell Ruby, the granddaughter she never met, that she always loved her.

Most of the scenes with Reign were crafted to show just how powerful she is in comparison to everyone else. Like Brainy said, without a Legionnaire, Kara only stood a 50% at defeating the all-powerful Reign. With one of them back, her chances bumped up to an 80%.

It was obvious that Mon-El was so torn about leaving Kara, they would find a way to bring him back. Even Brainy said it in a condescending tone.

Eventually, Imra told him that he had to go back and help Supergirl with her fight while she and Brainy went back to the future. She could tell that Mon-El was trying to be an honorable husband but deep down inside, his heart wasn’t completely hers and she couldn’t have that.

Imra is definitely getting the short-end-of-the-stick here, not to mention, she was vastly underrated during her time on Earth. She’s likely better off without Mon-El anyways because like she said, she deserves to be loved unconditionally.

I also love that she put his return in the hands of destiny. If he comes back, it was meant to be and if he doesn’t, that’s alright too.

And something tells me, he won’t be coming back after he acts on whatever chemistry there still is between the two of them.

You know, unfinished business and all.

Mon-El should also receive credit for stopping and trapping Reign when she was close to getting her hands on Ruby. The poor girl was terrified to see what had become of her mother.

If he wasn’t assisting Supergirl, there would have been no one to wield the kryptonite. But since he was, they were able to put her down and bring her back to Lena’s lab to study again.

And even after Supergirl apologized to Lena about overreacting, Lena told Kara that she could never trust the hero again because she knew that she asked James Olsen to break into her place and dig up any remainder of kryptonite.

She also revealed that James didn’t do it because they’d been dating.

To make matters worse, she compared Supergirl to her mother — someone who manipulates her relationships to get what she wants.

Yikes. This is going to be a hard one to bounce back from and that sucks because I loved how pure Lena and Supergirl’s friendship was.

It seems like she’s no closer to finding out the truth about Kara, although, how has she not picked up on it? She figured out Sam was Reign but a pair of glasses has fooled her when it comes to Supergirl. Or maybe she just doesn’t want to admit it.

Watching J’onn’s father battle dementia is so heartbreaking. Props to Supergirl for tackling this illness with a dose of realism. There’s no sugarcoating how terrible memory loss is.

Hopefully, they can weave in his story on occasion the same way they did this week with his father recommending that they use Reign’s ethical code against her. Her purpose on Earth is to rid it of sin so why would she kill an innocent girl like Ruby?

I guess even nefarious villains have their weaknesses.

Thoughts on this week’s Supergirl? Should Mon-El have told Kara why he really came back? Will Alex adopt Ruby? Will Lena and Supergirl make up?

Supergirl Parasite Lost

“What is there to be upset about,” Kara asked at the start of Supergirl Season 4 Episode 5, so naturally, there would be a lot she’d be upset about.

Considering the spread of anti-alien rhetoric across National City how could she think there would be peace?

Kara’s optimism can be so infuriating sometimes, however, I’m not going to sit here and pretend I didn’t enjoy seeing the whole cast get together for Sunday brunch.

At the start of Supergirl Season 4 Episode 3, Alex poses a question that serves as a catalyst for the rest of the episode: “what kind of person would do something like this.”
