Last week’s premiere episode was a thrilling hour of television. We saw the amazing transformation of Kara from unassuming office assistant into a high flying, cape wearing, bad guy defeating heroine. As she began to embrace her super powers Kara also developed a stronger purpose in life. Revelations about her family, both human and Kryptonian, distressed her but helped further underscore her dedication to protecting Earth. Episode 2 will be just as intense.
Kara overreaches with her abilities this week and causes a massive explosion at the city port. Will the fallout from such a public mistake cause her to go back into hiding? Or will she work to hone her skills? She’s going to need the help of her two greatest allies, Winn and James, but both have strong feelings toward Kara. Will the two men be able to work together? This is also the episode that tech billionaire and all around handsome troublemaker Maxwell Lord (Peter Facinelli) will make his first appearance. He pledges funding to National City to help clean up Supergirl’s mess but what’s in it for him? Will he be a friend or a foe? She’s already trying to defeat alien criminals while convincing a secret government organization that they need her help. One of those super villains will be a character familiar to Superman fans: Hellgrammite (Justice Leak). I can’t wait to see how the writers reinterpret both new characters and what other trouble our favorite flying heroine will encounter.
