At the end of last week’s episode, Kara had regained her powers after her battle with Red Tornado and saved the city from crisis caused by the earthquake, only to be confronted by Astra, her aunt, and two of her henchmen. Why is Emily Fields’ father attacking Supergirl?
After her disastrous battle with Red Tornado, and the broken glass in Ms. Grant’s office, Kara is powerless and vulnerable. Not only can she cut herself, she’s susceptible to the common cold, the most dreadful human experience. Continue reading
Now that we’re back to the normal story path, the startling confession from Kara’s foster mother about their father’s death at the DEO is investigated, while Kara deals with her own issues.
Kara is flying about, per usual, when a bout of road rage is reported and two men are nearly ramming each other off the road. Continue reading
(Now, back to the past, to the episode that was supposed to air last week…)
The Girl of Steel is tasked with her most difficult challenge yet: babysit her boss’ kid, save the city, and deal with James Olson’s insufferable love drama with Lucy Lane. The latter being so unfathomably dull. Continue reading
(Due to the tragic events in Paris this weekend, CBS chose to air 1×05 instead of 1×04 this week, due to content matter.)
Thanksgiving came early for our National City crew, but the monsters are still around.

Ms. Grant wants to expose Supergirl after their rooftop rendezvous, where Kara accidentally exposes her relation to the Man of Steel. Her slip up leads to unforeseen consequences: Cat Grant is going to write the Supergirl exposé and let National a City see their true, moderate version of a superhero. Continue reading
“He He He, Him Him Him, I am so sick of hearing about the Man of Steel.” Wasn’t this show supposed to be about Supergirl? The repeated mention of Superman every five minutes makes me want to gauge my eye out with a fork, the only relatable trait of Cat Grant. Why would you even mention Superman and not show Henry Cavill? Continue reading

And thus begins her life of normalcy, the life of Kara Danvers. Continue reading
