TV Show: Supergirl
Winn’s dad AKA the Toyman appears at long last. Was it worth the wait? Knowing this show, do you even have to ask?
“Blood Bonds” (S1 E09) The reset button gets pushed on Cat figuring out Supergirl’s secret identity, Non and Astra’s evil plot goes nowhere, and there’s an abnormal amount of people getting tied to chairs and beaten up.
Alex takes charge of the DEO! For almost 10 seconds! Henshaw gets captured! For almost 20 seconds! And Cat figures out Supergirl’s secret identity! For almost 30 seconds! Yeah, pretty much everything that happens is undone by the end of the episode.
“Hostile Takeover” (S1 E08) Supergirl’s evil Aunt Astra is back, and she’s brought along a much more verbose version of Non. But the true villain is whoever decided we needed another lighthearted Cat Grant-centric plot.
Evil Aunt Astra is back! But maybe she’s not so evil after all. Meanwhile, Cat and Kara take all the mystery out of their relationship.
“Human for a Day” (S1 E07). Supergirl loses her powers, but—surprise!—she’s still a hero without them. Meanwhile, the job of fighting this week’s obscure DC villain falls to Alex and Hank Henshaw, who finally reveals his true identity.
Supergirl is powerless to stop an escaped mind-controlling alien super-criminal, which is fine because no one ever tells her about the escaped mind-controlling alien super-criminal anyway. But, hey, she’s got a random, reluctant mugger to deal with, so that’s something, right?
“Red Faced” (S1 E06) Lois Lane’s dad comes to town and wants Supergirl to fight his idiotic-looking robot, the Red Tornado. Luckily, she’s angry enough to do it, but not half as angry as Red Tornado fans.
Some cut-up plastic milk jugs and $50 worth of red spray paint is all it takes to be a villain worthy of Supergirl. No wonder she’s so angry.
“How Does She Do It?” (S1 E04) The episode they didn’t want you to see last week finally airs, and maybe it’s still a little too soon? Also, Supergirl faces her own cut-rate version of the Unabomber while watching Cat Grant’s son.
A week late, but still probably much too soon after Paris, we get bombs going off all over National City while Supergirl is supposed to be… babysitting. Sheesh.
“Livewire” (S1 E05) Thanksgiving is the third week of November in National City, apparently, as Supergirl takes on a villain from the DCAU who becomes her lamest foe yet.
Someone said something mean about Supergirl on the radio! There’s only one thing that could mean – a fight to the death!
“Fight or Flight” (S1 E03) Supergirl reveals to the world that she’s Superman’s cousin (which the world somehow didn’t already know) and becomes the target of an old Superman foe.
Every been really mad at someone so you go beat up their cousin? No? Then maybe you’re not supervillain material. But Reactron is!
“Stronger Together” (S1 E02) Or, “Supergirl Relearns”. Supergirl causes an ecological disaster and realizes she sucks, so she enlists her friends to help her learn how to be a superhero… for the second time in as many weeks.
Superheroing is hard! But don’t worry, it’s nothing a training montage can’t fix. What do mean, we already did that last week?
“Pilot” (S1 E01) For the first time in a long time, we get aspects of the Superman mythos onscreen not weighted down by angst or failed attempts at achieving Christopher Nolan and/or Frank Miller levels of grimness.
Look, up at the TV! It’s some chick who thinks she’s superman. The series premiere of Supergirl has arrived.
