After what felt like an eternity, Supergirl has finally returned from its winter hiatus. Sure, it’ll be forced into hibernation again in a matter of weeks, but let’s just enjoy seeing the Girl of Steel while we can, shall we?
To say that a lot went down in last night’s midseason premiere is an understatement. Not only did the Legion of Super-Heroes – Mon-El, Saturn Girl and Brainiac 5, in this case – come together for the first time on this particular series, but Reign continued handing anyone who had the guts to take her on their respective asses, effectively proving that she’s easily one of the Arrowverse’s most powerful villains to date.
Luckily for everyone, the Maiden of Might showed up just in time to help balance the scales in the favor of good, thus forcing the Worldkiller to retreat and lick her wounds. Still, this war is far, far from over, and we were given hints that more threats like Reign will soon be on the way.
But before then, we’ll learn that desperate times call for desperate measures – and make for strange bedfellows. We say that because Kara intends on putting petty differences aside, teaming up with Saturn Girl – the wife of her former lover, mind you – and returning villains Psi and Livewire. Needless to say, we think this episode will give viewers much to geek out over.
