What I’m Watching: Supergirl

Supergirl: Season 3, Episode 13 “Both Sides Now” (B-)

I knew going into this episode that it was the last one we’d see for a while, since this show is going on hiatus until April 16th to allow “Legends of Tomorrow” to finish out its run in this timeslot. Ten straight new episodes of this show through the end of June is appealing, but this episode didn’t end in a terribly emphatic way. The addition of Julia and Purity wasn’t great since it just brought out blind compassion from Kara and equally blind anger from Alex, who took turns chatting with and yelling at Purity and only managed to get her to transform back into Julia during their epic fight in the subway when Alex caught a glimpse of Julia and switched sides. The blockers were a good weapon against her, but it seems that Reign is even more powerful and that won’t work. I’m curious to see if Imra’s mission has anything to do with stopping Reign, but this episode petered out on such a lackluster note, with Samantha changing in front of Lena, prompting her to say that she knows what’s wrong with her and is going to get her help. We’ll see what comes of that. It was weird to have Mon-El and Hank bonding over Martian moonshine with Winn dreaming of playing with batteries while all this was going on. Taking on three Worldkillers is going to require everyone’s full attention, and I’d hope that all this is put to rest long before the end of the season so we can move on to other things.
