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.
Things go from bad to worse in Supergirl’s “All About Eve.” Despite being in the title, Eve Tessmacher doesn’t actually show up much in the episode, although she’s certainly talked about a lot. We see some friendships mended, an ugly plan looking worse and worse, one ally resolving a crisis, and another just starting one.
A lot of surprises get dished up in Supergirl’s “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” A major character of Superman lore shows up, they follow up on James’ nasty cliffhanger, and a few people are in need of a status update.
Supergirl’s season of political strife continues with “Stand and Deliver.” This is another season where the good guys can’t seem to quite catch up and the bad guys pull one nasty surprise after another.
