Final Thoughts:
Talk about a roller coaster of an episode, when it missed it really missed and when it hit, it really hit. You have the all the easter eggs and teasers, more connections to Superman. But it was also filled with weird relationship drama.

So what did I like with the 15th episode of Supergirl. Well it was awesome to see the Fortress of Solitude, it was definitely a Donner inspired Fortress. Its always nice when shows and movies pay the due respect to movies that have set the tone for Comicbooks movies so long ago. I also loved seeing the Legion Ring on display. Indigo looks to be a great villain which the writers can develop and make a long time nemesis.

What did I not like, well as soon as I had something good to say about good Ole Jimmy the writes decided to go back in time and give us the Drama filled Olsen. I don’t think I am in the minority on this, Olsen is the worse character on the show. His purpose is the have some sort of tie in to Superman, but instead they are giving us relationship drama. The moment that Lucy and Jimmy broke up was the moment i realized I didn’t care. That’s a bad feeling to have about a main character.

We also finally got the confession from Alex, which was a long time coming. What made this moment so good was that Supergirl was actually Supergirl in this moment. When she decided to hug Alex and essentially forgive her for killing Astra, Kara became more the hero we should have and moved just a little bit past the girl she has been portraying.

This episode was good, but I only give it Two Thumbs Up. Let us know your thoughts and leave a comment below.

  1. Here is the thing with Jimmy and Lucy. They used to go out in the comic books. And they did have drama... lots of drama. It's very close, in spirit, to the source material. But it's ok if you dont like Jimmy... A lot of people just dont see how he fits in the Supergirl-verse... I personally think he fits. I like him. But I do get your point
