Official description. Holy heck, is this going to be intense:
Extended promo has also come out.
I still have not figured out why they have stopped using those eyepiece things.
And... given pestilence powers to cut and infect, why not use suits to cover your entire body.
Kryptonite Spray...nifty. Repels World Killers.
So the legionnaires on ice are now cured but the 3 awakened legionnaires a have had no changes to themselves in any way?
I wonder if changing the future turns Imras sister into Saturn Queen. Hopefully.
I'm glad that Kara is so confident about the cape abilities that she's barely used.
It seems Lena has Kryptonite weapons for every occasion. Yay.
Also, J'onn lives for at least 1000 more years. (Actual) Yay!
And Lex Luthor had an invisible mansion. Alrighty then!
I really want Lex to show up for an episode.
I honestly think we may get that next season considering the direction they're going with Lena. Didn't one of the producers say that's #1 on their wishlist, too? I'm thinking a Lena/Lex prison visit is in the cards at the very least.
Oh great, now James is pronouncing "Pestilience" wrong, too. Can Amy, David and Katie please teach these grubby Americans the error of their ways?!
Lena isn't lying.....
Kara's standoff-ish attitude and claiming that only she can contain kryptonite and such- she's doing a good job making a great case as to how Lena could become a villain for this show.
It's really annoying. Though I don't see Clark reacting any differently.
I was gonna say...do they mean for me to be totally Team Lena here? Because I definitely am.
Clark's argument about the DEO having Kryptonite made sense because that was a government agency who could use it to control him, depending on who's in charge after J'onn. I kind of assumed he took that Kryptonite and gave it to someone he trusted like Batman or Wonder Woman or someone. Kryptonians thinking they should be the ONLY ones with control of Kryptonite on the planet is not only dumb, it betrays their characters. They're supposed to know they may need to be put in check by someone they trust. They certainly do in the comics.
This is especially something Kara should know since she's already had a Red Kryptonite incident.
Seriously, what was the point of all that cape training? Seems like it's doing more harm than good in battle.
Ok, I can admit I did not see Kara appealing to Reign's (not Sam's) moral code coming. Well-played.
Kara gets way to high and mighty at times and it is never a good look on her.
And whoever came up with this whole cape fight like....just let it burn and never be used again.
Well, now that they got to use it against Reign once so it doesn't look like it was a total waste, hopefully they can let go of the notion with dignity and we can pretend it never happened, lol.
"Brainy may have put a nanny-cam in Winn's dirt." This is a great sentence.
I feel like Lena is playing Kara...I know she isn't but I feel like she should be.
Ok no idea what that cliff hanger was about.
Ok I loved that scene. You deserved that, Kara.
I wonder if, by season's end, Lena is a full-on, bonafide villain.
It certainly seems they're going that way, which, as usual, would be a case of them trying to do too much too fast and therefore making it feel forced. Like the way they handled Kara/Mon-El last season. If they hadn't rushed it the way they did, it could've worked. I'm preparing myself to feel the same way about Lena, tbh.
They should dedicate this episode to the memory of Margot Kidder.
The sequence of Reign going through several gauntlets in Lex's mansion is a great nod to Superman: The Movie.
The spoiler about Legion leaving and having Mon-El stay behind is true, but I liked the fight with Supergirl & Mon-El against Reign.
Lena is getting closer to finding out the truth with Supergirl.
Speaking of Supergirl, what is she this season? It's like she's different things such as embracing her alien side, appealing to the villains, and now being standoffish and high-and-mighty.
The progression here is that now Ruby knows her mother is Reign.
So overall, I really liked this episode. Definitely a step up over the last two, imo.
-James and Lena still have no romantic chemistry. I liked their scene at the end of the previous episode, but we're back to "why are you devoting screentime to this?" territory with them. At least they solved the mystery of Lena's living situation, lol.
-I continue to love Brainiac 5. And I continue to hate his make-up. So when he inevitably turns, hope he hangs onto that personal image generator or whatever it's called.
-Supergirl's handling of every situation regarding Lena these past few eps still feel contrived and out of character to me, but I'm at least grateful they're not taking the easy route of JUST making Lena shady and that's it, so...I'll accept it. I just can't decided if the writers intend for me to agree with Lena so much, because I really do.
-I want to be annoyed with Ruby for ruining their whole plan, but I honestly can't even blame her because of everyone in her life so blatantly lying to her about her mom. A girl can only take so much. And actually, it kind of works with the recurring theme of honesty this season. All these problems are being caused because people keep lying. Open communication is important!
-The action was better-directed here than the last 2 eps. For an Arrow director, Antonio Negret made a better transition to Supergirl than his fellow Arrow vet James Bamford did, that's for sure. Wouldn't mind seeing him direct this show again.
-I know I'm basically saying this every week now, but Odette is awesome. This whole Reign arc only works because of her. Betty Buckley was (unsurprisingly) great here, too. While I actually kind of agree she was a ****ty mother, she still made me feel for Patricia.
-Nice to see Kara Danvers again. Feels like it's been a while.
Next week looks like a waste of time. Wish we could skip it and get straight to the good stuff in 3x20.
