Supergirl Season 1 Episode 10
Kara does her best to support Winn when he hears that his father Winslow Schott Sr. breaks out of prison. His father looks for Winn for a reason to become like him. Cat offers Lucy a job working at CatCo and Alex asks Hank to use his powers to find out and uncover Maxwell Lord’s plans.
We begin the episode in the prison which is holding the “Toyman” who has conceived a plan to escape. Once out his goal is to get in contact with his son Winn. As the episode progressed we learn that his ultimate plan was to make Winn more like himself, ensuring that they spend the rest of their live together whether that is on the run or in prison.
Also this episode saw Alex and Hank begin to investigate Maxwell Lord, this investigation led to Hank finding the same girl being medically treated we saw in the first episode.
Ok lets get this over with first. Why do we have to sit through more of the Jimmy Olsen story, granted we all like having Jenna Dewan Tatum on the screen, however I am unsure on how much more we will take if we also have to deal with Jimmy. When Season 2 rolls around lets hope its with Jimmy back at the Daily Planet. Ok rant over, thank you for sticking with me through that. As for the episode, this might have been one of the weaker episodes in awhile. It’s not for lack of potential, Toyman should have been a bigger, better story. It just never got there. In many ways this episode just had to much going on.
Did anyone else think it was strange that Alex was trying to force Hank to become the Martian Manhunter? Her reasoning was due to Kara needing his help. So it was ok for Hank to help but there is no reason to bring Superman in? Just seems strange especially if Kara really needs help.
So now Maxwell Lord knows Kara is Supergirl. Not sure how I feel about this. At first I was ok it seemed to make sense, however taking a little bit an really thinking about it I am not sure how this progresses the story at all.
All in all this was an ok Episode of Supergirl, it definitely isn’t any where near some of the best. If anything this episode will drive all those Winn Kara relationship fans crazy. I give this episode 1 thumbs up.
