I’m not sure why every version of Supergirl seems to go through a storyline where her powers go on the fritz at some point, but that’s the case in Supergirl #14 where Kara travels to China to seek help from Super-Man and I-Ching.

supergirl-triggers

“Triggers” offers an emotional episode by introducing a villain with an unique ability to attack Kara (Melissa Benoist) where she’s as vulnerable as any human walking the streets. National City’s new bank robber turns out to be a meta-human named Psi (Yael Grobglas) who has the ability to force those around her to live their greatest fears. Her first two interactions with Psi don’t go well for the Girl of Steel whose visions of the end of Krypton and being trapped within her lifepod brings her to her knees. Only after understanding how her earlier fears relate to the loss of Mon-El who may be dead, or at best doomed to the same claustrophobic loneliness she felt as a teenager, can Kara fight through her fears and make a stand.

Supergirl‘s return to television introduces Morgan Edge (Adrian Pasdar) as a new ongoing threat to National City while a strictly-business Kara (Melissa Benoist) continues to struggle to deal with the emotional toll of losing Mon-El (Chris Wood) while fighting off a new terrorist known as Bloodsport and running away from her non-super-hero responsibilities. While Bloodsport, and his phantom submarine, provides the immediate threat, it’s obvious Edge is going to be stepping into the role of the season’s larger villain-behind-the-scenes this season.

supergirl-season-2-blu-rayIn a year where both The Flash and Arrow found themselves recycling different versions of the same story (evil speedsters and archers), Supergirl took a definite step forward as the best of DC’s television line-up. Sure, the exit of Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) as a regular after the first couple of episodes left a huge hole to fill and there were some clunkers early on, but this season saw Kara (Melissa Benoist) grow considerably over the course of the year take on Cadmus, get a boyfriend (Chris Wood) and deal with his evil mother (Teri Hatcher), and make an unlikely friend in Lena Luther (Katie McGrath).

Highlights from this year include the two-part season finale, the show taking a hard stand against anti-immigration policy, the first appearance of Mr. Mxyzptlk (Peter Gadiot), exploring what’s next for Superman’s best friend, Kara flexing her reporting muscles and standing by her friends, the return of Livewire (Brit Morgan), the introduction of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), and a super-team-up against Metallo.

The war for National City has begun. The first-half of Supergirl‘s Second Season finale sees old faces return as Rhea‘s (Teri Hatcher) invasion of National City gets underway. Run out of the DEO, Kara (Melissa Benoist) and her friends are forced into hiding. The near death of President Olivia Marsdin (Lynda Carter) not only reveals her secret to the group but also offers the return of Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) who stands tall providing a public distraction to give Supergirl the time needing to rescue Lena (Katie McGrath) and Mon-El (Chris Wood) from the Daxamite ship. To do so she’ll have to work alongside Lillian Luthor (Brenda Strong) in a makeshift peace destined for betrayal. By the end of the episode most of the plan has succeeded, but it turns out Rhea has one final surprise for Supergirl.

“City Of Lost Children” not only sets up the season’s final two episodes and reveals Rhea‘s (Teri Hatcher) master plan, but the episode also finds a way to center itself on a character who has become largely superfluous to the main storylines this season. The episode take a hard look at Superman’s black friend James “Don’t Call Me Jimmy” Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) and his vigilante actions as Guardian, but it also allows James to step-up in an entirely different way and, as J’onn (David Harewood) says, discover just what kind of man he is meant to be. Everything starts with Rhea using Lena (Katie McGrath) to build a mass transporter which both is the key to her revenge against Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and has the added benefit of making a certain segment of the alien go crazy including a young boy (Lonnie Chavis) who James befriends.

supergirl-alex

While the show’s B-story continues to slowly develop a relationship between Lena Luther (Katie McGrath) and Rhea (Teri Hatcher) leading into the show’s season finale, most of “Alex” is devoted to the abduction of Kara‘s (Melissa Benoist) sister by a childhood acquaintance who discovered her secret and now hopes to leverage it to get Supergirl to break his father (Gregg Henry) out of prison. How far will Supergirl go to save her sister?
