‘Supergirl’ Review: Supergirl and Superman Team Up One Last Time

Supergirl is a lot of fun this season. For the most part, the show being on the CW hasn’t really changed but there are subtle differences.

The action seems a lot more hyped up. Alex (Chyler Leigh) is definitely showing how tough she is this season. Winn (Jeremy Jordan) is even more awesome working at the DEO. He was being underutilized at CatCo. The story is also expanding.

It’s been great seeing Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) team up together. It’s been a lot of fun to watch and I hate that for now, he’s gone. Hopefully, Tyler will be back very soon.

Why is it that we had to lose Cat (Calista Flockhart) and Clark in the same episode? They can’t at least trade off so we can have one of them, can they?

This was a pretty crazy episode. Superman was about to leave and then an enemy that could kill them appeared. An enemy that I’m sure were going to learn a lot about this season. Cadmus not only is trying to kill them, but they are also the organization that has Alex’s father.

This threat made Kara realize something, or should I say remember something: what good a team her and her sister are. She had forgotten all about her sister while Clark was in town. Some people say that Alex was being whiny, but she was just hurt. Anyone would be if their sister was wanting to leave. We hadn’t seen much of Team Alex and Kara since Clark arrived and it was nice to see the sisterly duo back in action. If we can’t have Clark in every episode, we should at least see them teaming up a lot more.

We also got to see two sides of Hank (David Harewood) and Clark. There was their face-off when Clark was so mad at him over the kryptonite and then they teamed up in the end to save the day. I guess even they can put aside their feelings to do what is right. It’s hard to imagine that they can work well together on the battlefield, but they did just that.

I’m still upset that we had to say goodbye to Superman and Cat in the same episode. It was very sad saying goodbye to Cat. How can we not have her great monologues every week? I’m really going to miss her. She’s my favorite part of the show. She won’t be gone forever, I know, but I don’t know when we will see her again. If only the writers could tell us what episodes she will be in so we’ll know when she’ll be back.

With the loss of Cat, Kara is getting a new boss and he’s meaner than Cat was. Finding her way as Kara this season was never going to be easy. And while she may be made to be a reporter, she’s not going to become one overnight. Snapper (Ian Gomez) is going to push her but Kara has what it takes to push back and grow. She already proved she has it in her. It will be a different dynamic between these two but I think it’s going to be an interesting one.

Tyler may have left, but Chris Wood’s character is just waking up. I can’t blame him for attacking Kara when he wakes up. Who knows what he’s been through. Hopefully, they can calm him down and figure out who he is quickly.
