What I’m Watching: Supergirl

Supergirl: Season 5, Episode 12 “Back from the Future - Part Two” (B)

I wasn’t sure how long Winn would be sticking around, but I suppose it was useful for him to be there when his murderous alter ego from another earth tried to take over the Internet. He also encountered his father, who, as expected, proved that he had changed just as he sacrificed himself to save Winn. Threats like that aren’t nearly as problematic as the continued attempts at world domination by Lex, who managed to manipulate events so that Andrea would be forced to partner with Lena, going up against Leviathan, who may well be more powerful than Lex but isn’t quite as cunning or diabolical. Lex knowing about Alex’s efforts to keep tabs on him means that it’s going to be very difficult to stop him, and Brainy needs to decide whether he should listen to the other Brainiac who told him that he needed to help Lex at all costs, since at a certain point, it’s just not going to be the best idea. Resigning from her post as director of the DEO probably won’t help either, and now Brainy is in charge, which means he’ll be close to Lex but not necessarily checking his own blind support of the evil mastermind. As if the team didn’t have enough problems, Mr. Mxyzptlk is back, now in the body of actor Thomas Lennon, to certainly wreak havoc for what’s sure to be a memorable and action-packed 100th episode of this show next week, an exciting milestone I didn’t even realize was coming so soon.
