This, the final episode before the Crisis begins, has some important themes running through it, like redemption, hope, and the old saying about villains being the heroes of their own stories.
The overall bad season of Supergirl gets a bit better with the fifth episode. There are conspiracies inside conspiracies, new villains, and troubling developments.
The disappointing season of Supergirl gets a bit better here, but that’s not much of an accomplishment. There are still a lot of questionable choices and weird character moments.
I thought the season premier of Supergirl was disappointing. Honestly, I disliked and/or disagreed with almost every choice they made. The second episode was a bit better, but honestly, that bar is practically subterranean.
