To say that last night’s episode of Supergirl delivered some unexpected moments is quite the understatement. Sure, Kara may not have learned the true identity of Reign, but she did come pretty close. Still, the death of Livewire and the introduction of a new Worldkiller, Purity, are moments we won’t soon forget.
Next week, it looks as though the series may stray away from the Legion of Super-Heroes – at least for the moment – and instead focus on a few other unfolding situations. For starters, we can expect the battle between Morgan Edge and Lena Luthor to continue. Even having been explored sporadically thus far this season, our guess is that this thread will somehow be woven into the greater tapestry before long.
Speaking of which, it appears that Sam will continue to experience a struggle within, as her Reign persona will continue to come and go. In the past, we’ve stated that she’s somewhat comparable to Smallville‘s Davis Bloome/Doomsday insofar that she’s a reluctant villain, and that parallel is still holding true. Either way, seeing how this unfolds should make for some good TV.
What’s more is that the new trailer (seen at the top) shows James Olsen once again strutting proudly in his Guardian gear. Aside from seeing Mehcad Brooks suiting up as his Earth-X doppelganger a few months back, this season has been largely bereft of that particular hero. Maybe it’s time that Superman’s pal realize beating up criminals is more important than his prestigious new position at CatCo.
