Supergirl is back and she brought along her famous cousin!
Supergirl Season 2 Episode 1 picked up right where we left off with the pod hitting Earth, but we still don’t know much about the man inside of it.
It’s been revealed that he is Mon-El, but that’s about all we know. Hopefully we’ll know more soon, and actually get to see him awake.
Even though only 12 hours have passed, it sure feels like a lot has changed. And I’m not just talking about the whole switching networks thing, though that was a big move.
There’s a new DEO, which is probably a result of the network change and is much nicer than the previous one, and Kara’s feelings for James seem to have changed completely over night.
While I am a little disappointed they decided to remain friends, I’m actually okay with it. It’s still so early in the series, and she’s still learning to juggle being a superhero and having a normal life, so it probably isn’t the right time. That could change some day, but for now, he’s been friend-zoned.
As for the change to The CW, I personally didn’t notice any huge differences, did you guys? Granted, this was shot in the summer, so we may still be in for some darker, colder looking scenes later in the season. As far as the budget and the effects go though, I didn’t notice much of a difference.
But we all know the biggest downfall of the network move will be the recurring status of Calista Flockhart’s Cat Grant.
Kara: You knew even then? How?
Cat: Instinct. And I guess I saw a little bit of myself in you. Obviously not your strip mall wardrobe, and I probably curse more in one day than you’ve cursed in your entire lifetime, but you have integrity to right wrongs and see justice done. You inspire me, Kara. I can see the hero within you.
