Supergirl – Both Sides Now (3×13)

Published

on

Supergirl and the DEO are a step closer to the Worldkillers on this week’s episode of Supergirl but unfortunately, Reign is still one step ahead of them.

After pinpointing Julie as the Worldkiller thanks to her still-unexplained visions, Kara and team went to bring her in.

They were expecting a strong entity with powers similar to Reign’s but what they found was a girl sitting with her headphones on singing a song.

Julie got the shock of her life and begged Supergirl not to hurt her, which seemed a bit unusual to me. Why did she think the hero came to instill fear and pain?

When Purity sensed the danger, her switch flipped and those high-pitch shrieks and trembles knocked a few people to their knees.

J’onn was able to cuff her and bring her back to the DEO where Supergirl insisted to get through to Julie. She saw the switch flip but unfortunately, was met with backlash from Alex who wanted to “do it her way.”

Questioning Alex isn’t something I normally do. In this instance though, Kara seemed to have the better approach. Why was it so hard for Alex to believe that this creature wasn’t 100% evil?

Kara begins making headway until Alex ruins it all by angering Purity. When she reveals that they have her crystal upstairs, which will lead them to the Worldkiller’s headquarters, Purity freaks out utilizing her powers to break free from the DEO.

When the crystal is activated, Reign is summoned and informed about her “sister,” which unfortunately cuts into Sam’s mother-daughter bonding time with Ruby.

Lena thought she was doing Sam a favor by letting her take a mental health day and Sam thought she would make all the weirdness up to Ruby by allowing her to play hooky and go ice-skating. Instead, Ruby found herself deserted in the middle of the ice-rink after her mother just disappeared.

Ruby isn’t stupid; she knows something is up with her mother, but I’m surprised she called Lena over Alex. Mother’s can be so gullible sometimes. They think they are protecting their children and shielding them from the difficulties when in reality, Ruby is more aware of what’s going on than Sam is.

When Reign retracts, Sam rushes back to the office to confide in Lena: she has absolutely NO idea where she went after deserting Ruby. Not one single memory. Obviously, this has to be really frustrating. Medically, I’d probably diagnose it to some kind of early onset Alzheimers or bipolar disorder. This is especially true when she became furious when she found out Lena told her daughter that she was sick.

For a brief moment, Reign appeared through her before Sam fought back. Lena assured her she “knew exactly what was going on” and promised to help. What will her diagnosis be?

Honestly, if only Lena, Alex and Kara communicated on the regular. If Lena has told the ladies that information, they would be able to compare it to Julia and Purity.

In an attempt to take her down a second time, Winn located her riding the public transportation. Trust me, as someone who rides the Chicago CTA every day, Purity’s actions were relatively normal. That is until she started using her shrieking vibrato to take down the superheroes, which she found ineffective thanks to Winn’s earbuds. That’s how I tune out the ridiculous people on trains too, who would have guessed?

Stripped of her main power, Purity goes into distress, which becomes dangerous for the commuters. A fight ensues and it’s mainly Supergirl trying to take her down while the rest of the team focuses on getting people out of there.

Eventually, Alex realizes Kara was right this whole time; there’s a struggle happening within Julie. She’s trying to break through while Purity is trying to keep her grasp. The characteristic struggle of good vs. evil with good prevailing for the time being.

Just as they were able to reach Julie and bring her back, Reign crash landed and threatened to kill Alex. Julie, being the brave human that she is, offered herself in exchange for Alex’s freedom. Reign happily accepted since her whole mission was to save her “sister” and train her to be just as powerful.

While defeated all was not lost. The DEO now has a much better understanding of who the Worldkiller’s are and how they operate. The silver lining is that there are actually people inside. Maybe the goal isn’t to defeat them, it’s to save them.

We still don’t know who the other two are, but it’s only a matter of time before they rise.

The other big mystery this week involves Imra and Mon-El. She’s been absent from a few episodes and it’s because things have been a little rocky between the spouses. Everyone picks up on the discord but only J’onn really has the alien confidence to get the real scoop.

Mon-El is hesitant to open up at first but eventually gives us a deeper look at his relationship. His marriage to Imra was arranged. He wasn’t forced to marry her, per say, but he did it knowing that it would bring unity and peace between the planets.

This little fact changes everything for Mon-El and Kara shippers because Mon-El isn’t completely in love with his wife nor is over Kara. We knew that already, but it’s so nice to hear him say it.

Of course, he has respect for Imra and grew to love her but it isn’t on the level of deep, real and passionate as his feelings for Kara once were.

But because of that, he’s confused. He has a wife, but he also he might also have feelings for his ex-girlfriend.

Messy. J’onn agrees, but he gives him some solid advice: be honest. The key to marriage is honesty and Imra deserves to know what he’s really feeling.

He takes J’onn up on that advice and Imra is appreciative admitting that honesty is the on of the qualities she loves about him.

You know how I said mother’s think they’re doing such a good job of keeping secrets from their kids? Well, Mon-El really thought he was covering up his emotions well yet Imra knew exactly what the problem was. It’s obvious after all — any man would be conflicted if he suddenly RETURNED from the future and scored a second chance with the love of his life after thinking he’d never see her again.

He looks at Kara for a little too long, he’s too eager to talk to her and he’s always trying to save her. That man is in LOVE and while it hurts, Imra just knows their time is limited.

But, now that they’re being honest, Imra admits she has to tell him the truth too; the truth about why they really came on this mission.

What do you think she and Brainy are hiding from him? Was their goal always to reunite Mon-El and Kara? Did they need to return to help Supergirl stop the Worldkillers? We need answers Imra.

Naturally, since Mon-El is starting to have feelings again, Kara claims she’s getting over him. Will these two ever just be on the same page?

Haters can say whatever they want, but I’m thoroughly enjoying the romantic aspect of this series. It doesn’t have to be all about fighting villains — Supergirl is allowed to have a love life of sorts.

Alex is still wallowing in her break-up with Maggie, which isn’t a bad thing, it’s just being dragged out. I don’t want Alex’s personal life to interfere with the DEO nor do I want her to become cynical. It’s okay to feel pain, to be hurt and to drink your sorrows in tequila, but then, it’s time to pick up the guns and fight the real fight.

Other Thoughts

  • Man, Mon-El looks GOOD in his tight suit.
  • Did anyone else pick up on some sparks between Imra and Winn? I’m shipping them when Mon-El’s marriage dissolves.
  • Julie’s freak out was epic and totally relatable on many levels.
  • Winn, J’onn and Mon-El talking about cars? Classic.

Supergirl: James Olsen’s Sister Promoted to Season 5 Series Regular

Published

Are you ready to meet the other Olsen?

You’re not the only one sitting there asking yourself “James Olsen has a sister?”

We’re not familiar with any other Olsen family members because we haven’t yet met Kelly Olsen.

However, that’s all about to change after this Sunday’s episode of Supergirl.

Azie Tesfai (Melrose Place reboot, Jane the Virgin) makes her recurring debut as James’ sister.

In fact, she’s staying permanently as The CW already promoted to series regular for season 5.

But what’s keeping her in town?

Promotional photos reveal that while things didn’t work out between Kara and James, it’s possible that Alex and Kelly may be feeling a spark.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? Supergirl

Or maybe Kelly is just concerned about her brother James, who, as you know from reading our review of Supergirl Season 4 Episode 13, was shot in the back in the final moments of the episode.

James will likely survive the attack, but considering he was shot in the spinal area, he may be permanently paralyzed.

Many fans theorize that Lena will use her research to save James’ life by making him the first superhuman in National City.

With James’ fate uncertain, it only makes sense that his closest family member is going to check up on him.

Kelly isn’t the only sibling making a debut during the episode.

Supergirl Season 4 Episode 14 also introduces Jon Cryer as the villainous Lex Luthor who is going to be stirring up some trouble.

Supergirl What's So Funny About Truth, Justice and The American Way?

The Elite did not form to play games, even if their approach is casual with a flair for magic tricks.

Manchester Black, Hat, Menagerie, and the Morae were all business when it came to making a statement against racist, fascists, and the Children of Liberty on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 13.

For most of Supergirl Season 4, Supergirl has been dealing with extremists.
