Supergirl Review: Season 1 Episode 7 "Human For A Day"

Supergirl Season 1 Episode 7
“Human For A Day”

Kara and her friends must rely on their inner strength and courage when an earthquake strikes National City. Also, Alex’s mistrust of Hank reaches a breaking point when the earthquake traps them in the DEO with Jemm (Charles Halford), a powerful alien escapee.

Episode 7 picks up with Kara still without her powers as she spent them performing a Solar Flair as Jimmy States. The city experience a disaster and must get by without Supergirl. Kara must live through the day seeing many people being affected and dying without any powers to help. In many ways this episode is about Kara learning the true meaning of being a hero.

Meanwhile Alex is trapped in the DEO facility with Hank Henshaw while Jemm the powerful escapee with mind control powers is free and trying to escape the facility which is in lockdown. Alex doesn’t trust Hank at all and while he is trying to keep her safe she believes he is not to be trusted. The issue hits the boiling point when Alex finds Henshaw while he trying to find the Jemm. She cuffs him and leaves him behind to go after the escapee, we see Henshaw breakouts of the cuffs to save Alex. Henshaw finally reveals who he really is, after being pushed to explain about her father and how he was the only survivor. Hank tells Alex he truly is an Alien who her father saved from the real Henshaw and his Name is J’Onn J’Onzz.

Final Thoughts:
What a reveal, this might be the best surprise of any Comicbook show on television. Nice twist and I am not even mad that they took away Cyborg Superman, we finally get a live action Martian Manhunter how great is that! This truly opens the show up for so much more. Supergirl may have started slow but they have really ramped up and are putting out so much more. For any of the haters that might be disappointed in how they introduced J’onn J’onzz just remember we have do multi-verse thanks to The Flash. 

Outside the big reveal, the best part of the show still involves Cat Grant, I am surprise each week how much i like the interaction between her and Supergirl/Kara Danvers. She is slowly becoming the scene stealer of the show. 

I give this episode Two Thumbs Up, I must say the show is now officially far greater than it started out as. It doesn’t hurt that they have limited the annoyance of James Olsen in the last few episode.

Let us know what your thoughts of Martian Manhunter are, Leave your comments below.

  1. One of the best parts about this episode was Hank Henshaw's true identity.
