Supergirl Review: Season 2 Episode 5 "Crossfire"

Supergirl Season 2 Episode 5

Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, Floriana Lima, Chris Wood, David Harewood, Brenda Strong, Katie McGrath, Alexander Cendese, Andrea Brooks

Supergirl must beat a ruthless new gang who has been armed with dangerous new alien technology. When Cadmus sends a video to the DEO, the team realizes Cadmus is the one staffing the criminals for a secret mission. Meanwhile, Kara gets Mon-El a job as an intern at CatCo, James makes an important decision and Lena invites Kara to attend one of her fundraisers.

Final Thoughts:
Cadmus takes center stage in episode 5 of Supergirl by handing out alien weapons to humans and having them robbing banks. This takes everyone from Supergirl to Wynn and Lena Luthor in order to stop the robbers. The most interesting twist to come from this episode has to be the reveal that head of Cadmus is non other than Lena’s mother. This makes sense and provide an opportunity down the road to turn Lena toward her brothers evil side.

Mon-El finally joining the real world was the second part of this episode. It’s an entertaining story line being told here. Obviously he is brining some of his own traits from his home world to National city. Nice light hearted moments for the show. We also get to see the growing relationship of Alex and Maggie, it will be interesting to see how this plays out over the next few weeks.

Now to the big turn, James Olsen wanting to become a hero. During the episode we see James get involved over and over again. Being a man with now powers leave him vulnerable, and in harms way. By the end of the episode he is able to get wynn to agree to help build him a suit. So now we are finally going to get the guardian. I am not sure how I feel about this, James has been an interesting character on the show. For the better part of season 1 he was more or less disliked by the fans, and for the better part of the first 4 episodes from season 2 just MIA.  So will this help get people behind the character more? Im not sure, I still haven’t enjoyed him and I am not seeing that change any time soon.
