It's possible, in fact likely, that Lena HAS figured out that Kara is Supergirl.
Recall that Cat Grant figured it out long ago, revealed that fact to Kara, realized she made a mistake in doing so before Kara was comfortable in revealing that information after re-divining Kara's true identity, and has wisely kept that information to herself to the present, revealing it only through miss-able innuendo to her staff, but directly 4th wall to the audience.
(Cat divined James Olsen's identity as The Guardian and Barry Allen's identity as The Flash, too, incidentally, letting James himself know directly, and revealing her knowledge of Barry's true I.D. to Kara.)


Lena is being teased as a possible villain.
I think that's somewhat of a mistake, but I can easily see some episode where the "You never trusted me! You constantly lied to me and tried to deceive me!" heel-turn material gets trotted out.

Don't know if it's the writing or the acting but I cringe whenever the girls are sitting around pretending to be friends, it really feels forced.

See above.








Thought I lived in the past.

You guys got lost somewhere between 1998 and 2008.

Yeah, I would have liked to have seen a Mark Waid preboot Rann-level UltraSupergirl too, but the producers are modeling this particular arc on DC's Nu52. You guys simply haven't done your reading. They've actually followed remarkably closely to the original comic book story.

Here, take a look:

Just sounds like another thing the N52 should have left alone, tbh.

Testing out TurboImageHost because it seems to have wet the bed again.
All scans giving me a trio of options suggesting they've been deleted.
Only occurred hours to minutes ago, though,
and did so at least once before, even as the website itself shut down at roughly this time of year LAST year, too ...

This season was surprisingly having a good streak for the most part, but then I guess we had to have one like today that would end said streak, a padding episode about the ol’ gun control debate, ending with the outcome typical of these shows.

At least there’s only a couple episodes left this season. Cautiously optimistic as to how it ends.

"Bad" episodes like this are not necessarily bad for the show as a whole.

They spark discussion and win attention.

Notice that, throughout the streak of "winners" you posted not one line about the show?

Now come something you don't like, and you post.

Reminds of me of reading some time where Marvel Comics deliberately tried to provoke negative reactions from fans with controversial stories.

Lets the people that need to know (execs, producers, the suits at CW, advertisers, etcetera) that this show DOES have fans, IS being viewed, and that folks ARE paying attention to it.

Fair enough. Originally I was just gonna wait till the end of the season to post what I liked about it and whatnot, but that last episode particularly was difficult to sit through that I felt I had to comment on it while it was fresh in the mind, so if it seemed like I'm only here to post negatives about the show, that's not the intention.

I guess I'll be upfront by saying season 2 wasn't real memorable aside from the finale fight with a brainwashed Superman, but it's been the other way around this season so far for the most part. I had low expectations going in with this season, but glad those expectations were fairly well surpassed, and then some.

Just felt Arrow S5 did a better job with a gun control debate episode. This one kinda lost me when it was decided that the DEO dispose of all its weapons.

The proposed disarmament is only for J'onn's division and only for lethal weapons.

They'll still have their Kryptonite, tasers, debilitating sonic transmitters, containment nets, stunners, battle suits, etcetera.

And one thing they DIDN'T bother to mention is they'll still have living weapons like Mon-El, M'Gann, Supergirl, and J'onnz himself.

Supergirl all by herself could easily unleash more damage than the average tank battalion. And what J'onn could do with his ability to read thoughts and to mind control others ...

I was actually sitting there, as J'onn tried to talk a villain down, thinking:

"This poor guy has NO idea what J'onn can and might DO to him if this effort fails ... this thug's refusal to fire on this supposed "unarmed" man is the only thing keeping him alive ..."

I'm wondering if the reality that J'onnz himself is potentially more dangerous than almost anything that could possibly be on that list of now-banned weapons was considered by the writers. It would actually be genius writing if they intended that kind of irony and address it at some point.

Decent finale. Like what the cliffhanger alluded to also if it's going where I think it is...
