Supergirl is back! After a long summer it’s nice to sit back and enjoy some DCTV. This episode picks up where the season finale left off. Team Supergirl is celebrating their victory, but it’s abruptly halted as a ship (very similar to Kara’s) crashes in National City. The ship is carrying a kryptonian or at the very least another alien. Kara and J’onn take the alien back to the DEO where it’s being tested. The DEO has a new facility that we’re all going to pretend existed the whole time – thanks CW!
This leads to Clark Kent staying in National City for a couple of days to investigate what happened. Whenever Kal-El walks into a room whether he’s Superman or Clark Kent he gets everyone’s attention. Winn geeking out over Superman, and Cat flirting (I think?) with Clark was some on the more humorous moments of the episode.
This was a great episode. The introduction of Superman was done perfectly, Cat Grant teaching Kara is always great (I’m gonna miss Cat),but the beef between J’onn and Superman didn’t really work for me. Superman needs to understand that J’onn needs the kryptonite. Last season and even this episode proved that kryptonians are still out there. They need to be ready in case of any attack.
I really enjoyed the family interaction between Kara and Clark. It felt like they were related (both are lovable dorks). If Team Supergirl continues to work like this well oiled machine then I think we’re in for a great season.
Guys I’m letting you know that these won’t be weekly reviews. We’ll definitely be back for the four episode crossover and the midseason finale. Thanks for reading and we’ll be back in a few weeks!
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8/7c on The CW.
