Drama, drama, drama
The Supergirl series continues to be a satisfying super soap opera. It is very emotional, often for reasons that would only resonate with children who feel that life is unjust when they are denied their wants and wishes.
The writers are still weak but the plot architect is brilliant. There are sooo many plotlines that I looked at my clock, exhausted, and saw we were only half-way through the show.
There is this odd piling on off accountability on Supergirl from many directions. I can only guess that she will grow enough to not be pulled in every direction; one can hope.
The parallel lines of Kara’s relationship with Cat and her dealing with her Supergirl life is nicely played. I wish they’d give Cat more props. She takes her glasses off for dramatic effect and then she puts her glasses on for dramatic effect. Give her another prop, please!
I see in previews for the episode next week that … Supergirl has lost her powers. I’m absolutely deflated. I listed that plot sarcastically several weeks ago along with her evil double and loss of memory. It’s weak. They can not be so at a loss for ideas that they are reading the comic books written in 1970.
Play on, Supergirl. The world needs you.
