Kara’s sister was initially reluctant to team up with newcomer Maggie Sawyer — a detective with a soft spot for extraterrestrials, particularly pretty ones who frequent alien-friendly dive bars — but by the end of the hour, she was ready and willing to throw down for her. In fact, I dare say Alex seemed disappointed when Maggie made an early exit from the infirmary to meet her “hot date.”
We know that someone in the Arrow-verse is going to discover their sexuality this season, and after Monday’s Supergirl, all signs are pointing to #Sawvers. Or maybe #Algie? Look, creating ‘ship names isn’t one of my superpowers, OK? That’s for you to do in the comments section.
Elsewhere this week…
MISS MARTIAN, IF YOU’RE NASTY | Inspired by President Marsdin’s message of unity (“The Statue of Liberty will stand for aliens, too!”), J’onn paid a visit to the aforementioned alien dive bar. And who did he find slinging drinks? Why, none other than the “last daughter of Mars,” M’gann M’orzz — aka Miss Martian!
MON-EL HATH NO FURY | Though Kara and Mon-El’s relationship got off to a violent start — his first act upon waking was grabbing her by the throat and tossing her into a wall — they ended the episode with a handshake, which is as much as anyone could have hoped for considering the two are from warring planets. (Side note: I can already tell that Chris Wood is perfect in this role. I’m having glorious flashbacks to his time as Kai Parker, easily The Vampire Diaries‘ second-best villain ever.)
ROOKIE MISTAKE | I have a lot of thoughts about Kara’s first day as a reporter, all of which I’m going to express in the form of questions: Did she really think she’d get to interview the President of the United States for her first assignment? Shouldn’t she have been more excited about interviewing a huge name like Lena Luthor? What made her think she was supposed to interject her own opinion into a straight-new piece? And was Snapper Carr even that tough on her, considering no major paper would have ever run that story as it was?
