The writers on Supergirl made a really bold choice for the finale. Actually, they make several, but the one I’m talking about at the moment is the title.
Supergirl’s season is almost over, and there’s a lot left to wrap up. This is the second to last episode, and things are getting complicated. There’s a long overdue confrontation, an end to a subplot I haven’t liked for most of the season, and a big character shift, as well as a revelation that shakes one of the characters up.
Supergirl and company are heading for her finale as things build to a head with Ben Lockwood and his anti-alien thugs on one side, and various heroic characters on the other. There are a few surprises, a new twist on a familiar face, and a revelation about someone in power.
This season of Supergirl has been ugly, mirroring a lot of what’s happening in current American politics. After last episode, Kara decided that Supergirl might be doing more harm than good, and has put her cape away for a while to focus on “exposing” Lex Luthor.
