What I’m Watching: Supergirl

Supergirl: Season 3, Episode 22 “Make It Reign” (B-)

We’re almost finally to the end of this very lengthy saga, and I sincerely hope that whatever happens in the season finale makes all this feel worth it and charts a path for season four that involves completely different plotlines. The one relatively exciting moment in this hour was when Alura decided to jump through the portal with them in full costume, traveling to Earth to help defend her daughter’s planet in a way that none of her other people were willing to do. I’m about ninety percent certain that this will end with Alura making the ultimate sacrifice, along with M’yrnn, to stop the worldkillers, taking her away from Kara just as they’ve finally been reunited. I can’t hope to understand how it is that these worldkillers are created and then can pull in human minds and bodies from elsewhere, but it doesn’t seem like a great idea for the severely weakened Sam to go straight into the lion’s den to combat three very powerful, very angry scorned Kryptonians head-on. I’m also not quite sure how Hank and his father were able to discern that there was trouble afoot at the DEO when they were so involved in this mind-meld of sorts, but it’s good that they’re back in action so that these worldkillers can finally all be felled, returning Supergirl to a more prominent status as the superhero defending Earth who just has to deal with regular old human criminals.
