Melissa Benoist is just unbelievable. It seems that whatever the writers throw at her, she pulls it off with ease.
This show has definitely improved since the pilot and this episode was great. Right now, Supergirl is probably my favorite superhero TV show, next to The Flash and Agents of SHIELD, mostly because of the characters and some great character dynamics. Kara/Alex, Alex/J'onn and Kara/Cat are all wonderful relationships and there were some nice emotional scenes in this episode for each one of them. Kara's speech at the end of the episode was super touching and beautiful.
The only thing I really dislike about this show is the awkward trainwreck of a relationship between Kara and James. No matter what the writers do to convince me that these two are crazy in love with each other, there's just nothing there. No spark, no chemistry, no romantic tension, no genuine affection. Even their friendship seems forced. Maybe it's because James is the most boring character on the show. He's dull, he has zero personality and the fact that he's being reduced to a love interest doesn't help him at all. Sometimes I think that he could be replaced by a lifeless piece of wood and I honestly wouldn't notice. Every other character brings something to the table. James is just... there.
The episode was solid despite an unnecessary club scene where Kara on Red K tried to get with James. I myself would rather they never get together and the teasing to just stop. Anyway Kara is exposed to Red K and wears sexy out-fits and acts like a bad girl. What's not to like ? You also get some good Martian Manhunter stuff towards the end. So yeah; good episode.
Fantastic episode, probably the best one yet. What an emotional rollercoaster ride, Melissa Benoist acted her socks off, fair play to her. So much happens, Kara acting dark, Hank revealing himself and tho this isn't major...I loved the nod to Superman 3 with Kara flicking the peanuts in the bar like the alternative Superman...that was epic! Fantastic episode, I know I said that already but it definitely was.
Love her black suit! xD
Kara crying broke my heart. Damn that fine acting of yours Melissa Benoist. I didn't think the plot would get that serious, the entire city against Supergirl, and every character still at odds with her in the end. Good to see the otherwise light-hearted show going dark, they pulled it off really well. Winn's high-pitched "She killed Ms. Grant?!" made me chuckle. James missing is always good news.
Wow... Okay. This was hands down the best episode of supergirl. Melissa was great!
Melissa Benoist was amazing here. Wow
Loved, loved, loved this one!
such a heart touching episode
Aniela you hit it with the character of James, hence why they have temporarily removed him from the show until they can think of something to do with him :-)
Best Supergirl episode so far! 11 out of 10! As a bonus: the tribute to Superman III <3
This episode is gold. We NEED a "Mean Supergirl" spin-off
This was no doubt Supergirl's best episode to date. My only complaints are James (of course) and that the red kryptonite was somehow Maxwell Lord's brainchild. Otherwise, it was FANTASTIC.
red kryptonite and its effects, in tribute to Superman 3, that bar scene
