What I’m Watching: Supergirl

Supergirl: Season 3, Episode 7 “Wake Up” (B)

Mon-El’s return may well be the least exciting thing about this episode, which doesn’t speak terribly positively about a character who I thought really managed to liven up the last season. Something about him being muted and wearing a beard didn’t feel right since it was his boyish, irresponsible energy that made him most likeable, and of course he had to go and spend seven years far in the future as a result of his wormhole travel and only return to the present time after he had married someone else. I don’t see that playing out all that well because getting over someone who’s moved on because he thought he’d never see you again is far from an easy task, even for Supergirl. I was much more appreciate of the story progression for Hank and his father, who pointed out to his son that he seemed to be a prisoner of the DEO. Hank’s decision to rent an apartment so that he and his father could build a new home together was sweet, and it’s nice to see this relationship forming anew. Sam didn’t need to ask many questions for her adoptive mother to drop the alien bombshell on her, and she got her fortress built in the middle of the desert in no time. I’m always dubious of these fate storylines, very popular on “The Flash,” where those who want to be heroes are destined to be villains because of the nature of their powers, and I sincerely hope that we see Sam shining through as Reign tries to take over and, apparently, kill the world.
