Supergirl Season 2 Episode 1
“The Adventures of Supergirl”
Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, Chris Wood, David Harewood, Tyler Hoechlin, Calista Flockhart, Katie McGrath, Frederick Schmidt
Supergirl and Clark team up to stop a new threat emerging in National City; Alex feels left out while Kara’s Family stays in town; a pod comes crashing down to earth.
After a rocky first season which saw fans turn against a Superman fan favorite, low ratings except a crossover episode with The Flash, and a end of a season which saw the show move networks, Supergirl finally debuted on the CW. So what does a show do when everything went down hill the year prior. You obviously bring in the Man of Steel, which helped Supergirl to a record breaking Monday night and the 2nd highest rated for the CW show ever.
So the more important question, was the first episode of Supergirl as good as the ratings say? The answer is an unquestionable yes! We didn’t even have to wait to long before being introduced to Clark Kent, Tyler Hoechlin did an amazing job being able to channel that Midwest nerd vibe which is Clark. This episode also touch further on the issues between Superman and J’onn J’onzz, and of course this has something to do with kryptonite. This I assume will be touched on more throughout the season when Superman reference the President.
With Superman now part of the CW DC Universe, it was nice to see that the writers of the show pay tribute to Superman: The Movie with Wynn reference of the earthquake caused by Lex Luthor. Which obviously brings us to the potential new season villain Lena Luthor, who has officially taken over for Lex at Lexcorp.
Finally, it seems like there are some Sad days ahead teased though out the episode. Cat Grant maybe phasing out as a regular character and move into the role of a reoccurring character. If you have read any of my previous reviews from last season, you would know that Cat Grant was one of the more surprising and fun character to watch throughout the season.
