Elswehere, former villain B has also given up his plans for world domination and decided to become a part-time ally of the good guys.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Former villain A has abandoned his evil ways and decided to become an anti-hero of sorts.

Kara's high and mighty speech about James being too human to be a superhero like her might have had more weight to it if she hadn't just recently teamed up with a whole slew of superpower-less human heroes on another Earth a little while ago.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Actually, Alex may make it worse.  All the anxiety Kara has regarding friends and loved ones who go into danger already, she's projecting on the two she thought were relatively safe but who are now throwing themselves into danger too.

Hate to dig up an old issue from when the show first began, but Kara's concern for James putting himself in danger might feel more justified if the guy actually looked like his less-macho comic counterpart instead of looking like (as Sean Whitmore put it, back on Page 9) a guy who could "bench-press a Buick".

Okay, we know that the M'gann that came into the DEO with J'onn was the first impostor, and we know later than both Winn and Alex get captured and impersonated by each White Martian, but what doesn't make sense is when the lights go out after J'onn fights the fake M'gann, there's no time for either Alex or Winn to have been grabbed, carried off, tied up, and replaced all before we see everyone grouped together during lockdown. Either Winn or Alex had to have been a fake from the very beginning of the scene before the fake M'gann is exposed, but that still doesn't leave any time for other one of the two to have been switched out when the lights went out.

Why even assume that the imposter had to be one of the people in the room? J'onn later tells the two agents to "take a team", so there's obviously other people in the base.

Why did Alex change into her tactical wear to have a heart to heart with Kara? I thought that was a hint that she was a Martian, but nope, the real one was dressed that way too...

As a spelling Nazi, that "CORE STABLIZED" alert bugged me :p

Poor J'onn... :'(

Headcanon: until and unless contradicted, the new alien love interest Lyra is the CW-verse version of Comet/Biron.  In Super-Horse form, she's a small green pony.

I seriously thought that Winn was going to wake up with a hundred eggs in his stomach after his date with Lyra. But if it's a real relationship that has nothing to do with Kara, then good for him.

Because I was curious, I checked the social media accounts for Hamilton, and none mentioned this show, so Mon-El and Mxy weren't fighting on the real stage. (I guess it makes sense that, with all those sold-out performances, there's no time to have a TV show messing around in their theater.)

I only just noticed this, but doess Kara go to the DEO dressed in civilian clothes that often? That's not smart...

Even though the CGI wasn't the best, I loved Kara fighting the Jor-El statue, that's exactly the kind of nutball stuff that should happen when Mxy is around.

Regarding the theater, it was probably a local one in Vancouver they used.

 

I had the same thought about Kara.  Why is she waltzing around the DEO in her civies?  Does everyone know her secret identity there?

 

Did someone forget that she has a secret identity since most of the main cast (if not all of the main cast) know it?

 

I also wondered why Winn went to the alien bar alone?  Granted for story purposes, but would a normal human really go there that often?  Especially when the drunk aliens seem more dangerous than the average human drunk.

Does skipping out on a date and going straight to a booty call two nights in a row, while barely knowing each other even count as a relationship?

Good intentions or not, right now, Winn is just her lovesick boy-toy.
