Oh my goodness how did everyone enjoy the start of Season 2? That was mind blowing FUN (not sure the pod guy and Cadmus guy at the end and the explosions and the….) <g> The ratings were AMAZING 1.1 (3.024 million total viewers)! Those ratings have not been seen on The CW for six to eight years (according to The Wrap). 

My Mini Review

  • The new Supergirl Logo! Blue on Red – I like it!


  • I will admit to be a little annoyed that Superman was hogging the news when it was announced he will be appearing in a few episodes. After watching The Adventures of Supergirl, I found that he didn’t overshadow Kara (well maybe for Winn who went all fan boy which was so cute). They complimented each other. One of my favourite scenes is when Superman and Supergirl stopped the spaceship from crashing and then being super happy afterwards. That was awesome!
  • Winn was just too cute in this episode. We didn’t really get to see why he left CatCo and went to work for the DEO – that wasn’t explained or was it? I have to go and rewatch!
  • In addition to Tyler as Superman, we get to meet Lex Luthor’s sister Lena played by Katie McGrath. Hmm…I’m not buying the good girl routine. Who would want to kill Lena? Lex? Why? It seemed a little odd.
  • Who did not see splitsville for James and Kara? Poor James.
  • Cat going all fan girl giggly with Clark! That was just too cute

  • Alex kicking butt!!!! I need to create a gif or two of that!
  • J’onn and Kara flying together
  • Supergirl and Superman together in every scene – they complimented each other. Melissa and Tyler work so well together
  • Cadmus…freaky icky Cadmus!
  • Alex get a little giddy about Superman (smelling nice?).

and a whole lot more. That episode just went too fast! I need to go and rewatch it.

Next episode: The Last Children of Krypton!

Kara teams up with her cousin to stop a new threat in Central City, leaving Alex feeling left out. In the meantime, Kara and Hank are stunned by the pod that crash landed on Earth.

Supergirl is hurt by a kryptonite-powered villain sent by Cadmus to attack National City. Superman blames Hank since the kryptonite was stolen from the DEO. In the meantime, Kara’s first day at her new job doesn’t go as planned when she meets her new boss.
