Lex Luthor is waging full-on war against Supergirl; he wants the Red Daughter to turn Supergirl into an enemy of the state rather than America’s hero.

But to understand Lex’s motives and the creation of the Red Daughter, Supergirl Season 4 Episode 16 had to turn the clocks back three years to the very beginning of the series.

Usually, I’m not a fan of flashback episodes, but seeing rounded Red Daughter origin story from the big bad’s viewpoint gave us all the answers we’ve been seeking throughout Supergirl Season 4.

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? 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.
