This final season of Supergirl has really not been their best work. I don’t know if they know it’s over, or the stories just aren’t jelling, or maybe it’s me. Whatever the cause, it’s really not working for me on pretty much any level.
I have to admit, I’ve found the Supergirl series to be uneven as it’s gone on. They’ve had some great ideas, some poor execution, and a few great moments. I will be forever grateful to the show for introducing the Tyler Hoechlin version of Superman, which is the best take on the character I’ve seen in years.
Supergirl’s sixth and final season is off to an odd start. The Girl of Steel herself has been exiled to the Phantom Zone, so she’s away from all her friends and allies, which is an odd choice for the show winding down.
As usual with season finales, there are likely going to be spoilers in this one. Be warned.
Krypton ends its first season with a title that is chilling for anyone who knows more than just the basics of the Superman mythos: “The Phantom Zone.”
