What I’m Watching: Supergirl

Supergirl: Season 6, Episode 2 “A Few Good Women” (B-)

I didn’t know what exactly was happening at the start of this episode with a suspected vampire who turned out to be an alien from the planet of Transylvan whose real existence had inspired all of the stories we’ve come to know. Him having a connection to the Phantom Zone since he tried desperately to find his missing husband made more sense, though it still caught me off-guard as completely random. Knowing that her mother was alive but not being able to be with her all the time was peculiar enough, and now Kara has the chance to be with her also very-much-living father, who has taken an “Inception”-like plunge where he believes that there’s no way out of the Phantom Zone even if they tried. Brainy training Nia is hardly what I would call gentle, and she’s already running all over the place thanks to having to babysit William. I suppose it shouldn’t be all that far-fetched that Lex would find a way to get himself completely exonerated in court, but I wonder what the longer game is here, especially since Lena could have wiped more of his memory so that he wouldn’t pose such a continuous threat to all of them. He discredited Eve with ease and then still managed to win over the jury even after Lena baited him, and she’s going to have to work with Andrea to find a way to take him down in the court of public opinion and the press if she can’t do it in the court of law, provided she doesn’t find herself facing charges too.
