In the Martian Chronicles Kara was a bit of a brat. I did enjoy how she fell all over herself to go “no nope no no way” about Mon-El but then they wrecked it by making her take an interest when she thought his interest was lost. Plus there was the whole thing with Earth birthday. I get she was disappointed but poor Alex. Also Kara is still being all ridiculous over Guardian. Like I said brat.
Anyway then there was Luthors.
“Kara Danvers you are my hero”
And all is forgiven. I love, love, love how Kara believed in Lena and never once doubted or let her down. I mean there was no evidence that Lena was innocent (and plenty of evidence that said she was guilty) so it was blind faith but you know what I like that. Kara knew Lena as a person, knew her character and that she wouldn’t do it and that was enough.
I guess I don’t have to like everything about Kara as a character. Hey I just called her a brat but she’s still a good person and I still want her to be happy. Plus come on that awkward “no no nope” with Mon-El honestly I was just yelling at the TV “just tell him you are gay” because really it felt like that should be where it was going.
I feel super sorry for Lena. Her step-mother is such a bitch, always going for the emotional manipulation. I’m glad Lena has Kara as a friend even if it’s not anything more than that right now (though it should be). Lena you get the last laugh darling, you are the final Luthor standing so you get the lot, good and bad, but you also get to write the ending.
A Luthor and a Super working together. Gotta love it.
Ok I get that Kara is scared that James will get hurt or die by being Guardian but geez that confrontation was hard to watch.
“You are a human, you will never be strong enough” – can we say ouch?
I’m sorry I just find that horrifying. Like Kara thinks that she’s better than the humans a little bit deep down which doesn’t sit well with me. She really needs to respect James can make his own choices because that’s what it comes down to – it’s his life, his choice.
I wish that James had kicked the bad guys ass and hadn’t needed Kara to come save him but the team-up at the end when they all worked together was nice. Win definitely deserved Jonn chewing him out but I liked that Jonn also praised him and said he and James were an impressive team.
Honestly I just can’t even with how sancitimonus Kara is being “as long as you are putting yourselves in danger I can’t support it” like she’s not their mother. I’m glad Jonn showed them respect because damn it seems like he’s the only one that’s going to. I’m disappointed in Kara for this I really am.
Lack of respect was a theme because Mon-El didn’t respect that Kara could take care of herself and had to come save her (thus endangering the civilians). He said that’s because he likes her romantically in that very awkward confession at the end of the episode (seriously Kara could not have looked more uncomfortable) but that is no excuse. Deep friendship, romance, whatever, you can love someone and respect that they know what they are doing. To think you know best because you care is understandable, I mean who doesn’t want to protect the people we care about right? But that doesn’t make it right.
I really wish Kara had that revelation. That she was treating James how Mon-El treated her. Think how frustrating and annoying it is for someone not to trust you, to think they know best and to protect you whether you want them to or not. I hope she does realise that and apologise to James soon.
I love Supergirl.
Just watched “Supergirl Lives” with the Stargate and Win going “I’m not a red shirt!” and Kara’s real superpower of compassion and bravery saving the day.
That’s not the first time her refusal to move has inspired others, she won back National City after the red kyptonite thing by continually standing between people and danger even though it was hurting her.
Alex feeling like the universe was kicking her in the teeth for being happy, like karma was kicking in, was so relatable but damn girl you do deserve to be happy! Oh and I super loved the “glasses really don’t help” assessment by Maggie as she just knew Kara was Supergirl because of course.
Honestly the only thing that could have made this episode better would have been less Mon-El and more Lena.
Watching Supergirl 2×08 and yay there’s Supercorp! I love how Kara empathised with Lena about sins of the parents and also was adamant that she knew her, and that Lena was a good person 🙂
I did roll my eyes though because right after there was the Mon-El kiss and my inner snark came out about them being scared of the gay and having to cover it.
Obviously this is the first time I’ve seen it but I still didn’t believe for one second that Lena was actually supporting her mother/Cadmus. Nice fakeout. I considered it was possible when she said “why not I’m a Luthor?” because I thought maybe she wanted to earn her mother’s love. I’m so glad that’s she knew that wouldn’t work and it was a bad idea.
Basically Lena = badass. I loved the “and I called the police.”
Oh and yay for Alex and Maggie! And now there’s some kind of crossover with The Flash? I’m hoping that’s skippable I only watch half the DC shows.
I just watched 2×01 – The Adventures of Supergirl.
Like I swear it just oozed fun. Introducing Superman on screen was a stroke of genius. I loved watching them save the day together, I loved watching them be Clark and Kara, I loved Kara teasing him about changing his diapers. Then there was Clark and Cat Grant (I remember from Lois and Clark that Cat had a crush on him).
But but Lena Luthor.
Can I just say that it bodes well that Kara figured out what she wanted to do – her calling – because of Lena? Like I know this ship isn’t canon, I know I’m in for pain, but I’m a massive Bering and Wells shipper guys I don’t need no stinking canon. I need little moments that I can twist to mean things.
Oh and I absolutely loved Alex badass fight with Corbyn.
Also weirdly I liked that Superman and J’onn are at odds even though they are on the same side. It shows that not everything is black and white. I mean J’onn is right there were hostile Kryptonions – a bunch just tried to destroy the world with myriad – so holding onto a weapon which could combat their abilities makes sense. I can see Clark’s POV too though, probably reinforced by Cadmus and General Lane’s attitude, which is that he’s only ever one incident away from being declared an enemy. He doesn’t even have to do anything, the mood changes one day, or somebody new comes to power, and boom. I don’t think he’d mind so much if J’onn had it stashed somewhere secret because J’onn is a guy of integrity who would only use it against him if he did go rogue – it’s the government basically and can’t blame Clark for that!
If I remember rightly Supergirl switched networks so this shakeup in season 2 makes sense. The DEO office has changed, the Kara/James ship has been dropped etc. Plus I know Cat Grant is leaving. I am quite sad about the last one but overall if this premiere is any indication then I’d say the show is looking good.
