I’m going to let my two fandoms collide because portions of this episode reminded of a Xena episode (Return of Callisto). Kara’s descent into sadness at the loss of Mon-El and the fact she did it makes her question her humanity. She doesn’t want to be Kara Danvers, doesn’t want to feel. Yet she is doing just that and it’s hurting her. So when I saw the episode, my first thought was Xena’s prayer and how she didn’t want Gabrielle’s light to go out.
