Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 12 ‘Bizarro’

Last night’s episode opens up three months into the past. Maxwell Lord enters Lab 52 (a nice nod to the 52 universes in DC Comics). Inside he looks upon the unconscious girl we have seen in the past few episodes.

Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 11 ‘Strange Visitor from Another Planet’

Last night’s episode can be somewhat divided into two sections: First, there is the J’onn plot section and second, the Cat plot section. The episode flows as a woven tapestry, but it makes more sense to explain what happens based on the specific characters since there is very little overlap this time.

Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 10 ‘Childish Things’

We start our episode with Kara getting a flying lesson from Henshaw. As we all now know, Henshaw is really J’onn J’onnz, Martian Manhunter. Anyway, Henshaw is giving Kara a flying lesson and it’s pretty awesome. Martian Manhunter is fantastic as a character, but they really get him right on the show. It’s just so wonderful visually.

Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 9 ‘Blood Bonds’

Supergirl is back this week and while I doubt she made any resolutions, I’m excited to see what the New Year holds for her too. Picking up right where we left off, Kara is fighting her Aunt Astra’s husband, Non. It’s a pretty impressive aerial flight with some fancy dodging of a giant jet, but then they slam down to earth right in front of Lord Tech where it appears that Uncle Evil is about to destroy Kara.

Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 8 ‘Hostile Takeover’

We pick up from where we were last week: Astra and a pair of Kryptonians show up and face off with Kara. Kara punches them, tries to get away, but quickly finds that Astra has that pesky Kryptonite blade and that she and her cronies are wearing something that protects them from it.

Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 7 ‘Human for a Day’

This week’s episode opens up with our heroine getting put through all sorts of medical paces. The Alura program in Kara’s special fortress room explains her power loss. The nuts and bolts of it is that she drained all her Kryptonian cells of the energy they get from the yellow sun.

Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 6 ‘Red Faced’

Last night’s episode signaled not only a return to the normal week but also the end of my holiday leftovers so it needed to be pretty great and it did not disappoint. You all know the rules by now: spoilers beyond this point (now would be a good time to go get a snack.)

Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 5 ‘How Does She Do It?’

This week’s episode opens with our girl having a great flight just being happy. We know she’s happy because that’s what she’s monologuing about. She is definitely happy. As she is having her happy flight she sees a drone and goes after it.

Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 4 ‘Livewire’

Our episode opens with some DEO guards escorting an alien. It’s humanoid, but has some freaky features. The guards have the alien in chains, which I’m not sure makes sense because every alien we’ve seen so far is crazy strong and oh look, said alien breaks out of the chains.

Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 3 ‘Fight or Flight’

So about that interview. It’s a pretty lackluster interview which I think is a weakness of the episode here. The show is definitely improving with its writing and acting, but it’s not quite smooth yet.

Fly Like a Girl: ‘Supergirl’ – Episode 2 ‘Stronger Together’

Kara, still flying high on her defeat of Vartox, is hard at work. First, DEO is putting her through her paces. She needs training, or so thinks Henshaw, but our girl in blue disagrees.
