Their powers on the planet will make them unstoppable and just as General Zod said in Man of Steel, "The foundation must be built upon something", which does note bode well for humanity! With Mon-El and Kara trapped on Argo, a race to figure out how to get back-up to Earth begins! Check out the trailer for next week's penultimate episode below:

"I too would like to see Ruby's story develop but not in the direction of the Supergirl/Ruby intellectual relationship mirroring that of Inspector Gadget/Penny. Remember Kara's Kryptonian intellect is supposed to be one of her powers."

Well, of course, Ruby has Kryptonian genes, too, so she may also have some of that "super-intellect".
But I was thinking more in the direction of how the original teenage Snapper Carr character sometimes cracked the Justice League's cases simply because he was "hip" (I know, dated slang..) to new trends and pop-culture happenings that the older Justice League members were unfamiliar with. It wasn't that Snapper was "smarter" than J'onn, Clark, Barry Allen, or Diana Prince. He just had more knowledge of those things that were common and everyday to 60s and 70s teenagers than the DC superheroes ever did.
For instance, in the very first Justice League comic book, Snapper happened to be spreading lime on the lawn at his home. And it later turned out that lime was in fact the villain's "Achilles heel"!

I interpreted this differently. None of the characters outsmarted Brainy intellectually. Brainy was confounded by not being used to 21st century pop-culture and our primitive (by his standards) technology, such as Win's intimate knowledge of DEO systems or Kara's reference to Social Networking. Compare this to how many of us are not familiar with the workings of the Antikythera mechanism or not able to read ancient stories in Ogham writing?

Being surprised that Lena could figure out the operation of the Leagues ship demonstrates more his 9th level arrogance than a comparison of intellect.

Quoting Stewart Tick:
In the comics, Braniac 5 has a "9th level intellect" - in other words, way, way beyond any human intellect. I know Winn and Lena are supposed to be tech geniuses, but no way could they outdo Brainiac in that department!


I too would like to see Ruby's story develop but not in the direction of the Supergirl/Ruby intellectual relationship mirroring that of Inspector Gadget/Penny. Remember Kara's Kryptonian intellect is supposed to be one of her powers.

Quoting Stewart Tick:

I would like to see Ruby . . . It would be cool if she also sometimes came up with the insight that cracks the case for the Supergirl Team, and the original teenage Snapper Carr sometimes did for the Justice League in the Silver Age comics.

Filming start date for s4 is 11th July end on April 15th

Quoting Supergirl.tv Admin:
Totally ok to talk about the odd schedule and overlaps coming up in season 4 with Melissa on Broadway but I would suggest we take it to the forum as to keep this topic clear for the next episode discussion. As for that overlap, I am working on getting confirmation on what will happen and get an OFFICIAL film start date. Stay tuned!

It looks like that will be happening again now that it turns out the Supergirl comic was not canceled after all as previously thought, but postponed as issue #21 will be released in August.


Quoting Thalolli:
The Supergirl comics also had arcs where Supergirl was away from earth and saving people there.IMO it's even fun to see her in new situations.

Well, I think the show has been very clear, that Kara is on a "hero's journey" and to me the temptation to settle down and the rejection of that temptation is a very classic part of that journey. To me that part of the show is just truth in advertising.

Also, action and special effects are expensive in live action. So I think no show will ever feature that amount of action you dream of. I think the producers have talked about this before that they often save up money during the season so they can blow it all on the finale (which I'm guessing will kick off next episode).

And I still don't think that what we saw in last episode comes even close to episodes where Kara isn't on at all. Kara was still there, on her journey, Alex and so on were just the filler to me, which is precisely why I dread the thought of the season starting out with episodes where that is the status quo and Kara is completely sidelined, rather than Kara having a major character beats as they work up to the finale. I for one like seeing different aspects of heroism. So to me the episode before that where Kara stands in front of the council and makes her case for why they should give up the rock was a real treat. I really enjoy those more scifi aspects of Supergirl.

The episode where Kara dreams of being on Krypton (s1) or where Kara is in a coma talking to Brainy to me were also more character pieces than action pieces, but that doesn't make them bad episodes to me.

Evidently I'm hopelessly simplistic. I feel a show called Supergirl should be primarily an action show and not a character development show. I would like to see Supergirl using her powers throughout the show and not just an occasional isolated instance. We had some of that in season 1 but there's been less and less action since then. I just don't like the trend I've seen over the past two seasons where there's less and less action.

As for the robot incident, I don't recall it as any kind of sustained flight which we used to see but don't anymore. Again you can call me unsophisticated and simplistic but I don't like seeing one episode after another in which the title character rarely or never uses her powers.

I understand the point that you want to show that Kara can be a hero even if she doesn't have her powers. That point has been amply demonstrated in previouslyand to me it was enough to see a few such episodes such as "Human for a Day" and "Duet". Those were fine but I don't want to keep seeing this "genre".

Kara flew in the last episode when she was attacked by robots. Personally, I don't mind in those episodes since she has a pretty good excuse, she is in a place where she doesn't have any powers to meet her mother. And next episode she's gonna struggle how to help despite not having any powers. I actually enjoyed every time they did those episodes in both season 1 and season 2. Showing that Supergirl will be heroic no matter where she goes and whatever power she has or doesn't have.

Not to mention that the episode started out with Supergirl heroically saving Sam from Reign.

It's really beyond me how anybody can consider those episodes to not have any Melissa, when those were prime character development episodes. Just because she spent her screentime elsewhere doesn't mean that she didn't have screentime. Which to me is very different from her actually not having screentime (as opposed to screentime which people elect to ignore for some reason?) which would be the case if it happens like some speculate.

IMO those episodes reminded me quite a lot about Supergirl 52, the arc where Kara is given the chance to restore Krypton. It's about temptation. Kara being shown a normal life by her definition and choosing heroism over it. A very traditional moment in the story of most heroes. The Supergirl comics also had arcs where Supergirl was away from earth and saving people there.IMO it's even fun to see her in new situations.

"Guardian and Alex protect the city".

Sadly we're already getting plots like "Guardian and Alex (and J'onn) protect the city". We see less and less and less of Supergirl using her powers. Near the top of this website it says "Supergirl flies in...". But when did we last see her fly? Not the last episode or I recall in the episode before that. I feel we're already getting episodes without Melissa. We don't have to wait until season 4 for that.

I watch this program out of my longtime interest in the Supergirl character. It's disappointing to see so little of her in action lately. An episode without sUpergirl in action is to say the least not very entertaining.

It’s no use worrying about things we can’t control.


Quoting Romulus:
Please, don't sweat things that haven't even taken place yet.


Quoting Kelly:
Just sit back chill


I would appreciate it if you guys didn't say things like this. We should be allowed to explore the possibilities without essentially being told to keep quiet. I'm not in any panic about it just showing some concern for Melissa's physical and mental well-being. Personally I would totally give her a 2 week break after her Broadway stint has finished, let her relax and freshen up for Supergirl Season 4 filming. Even if it means reduced Kara/Supergirl screen-time in the early part of the season then I'll accept that, don't want Melissa suffering from exhaustion.

And as I said in my previous post I trust that Greg Berlanti has a plan in place to not deny us Kara/Supergirl from the early episodes.

I will add that I think it's great for Melissa to perform on Broadway and it was nice to hear Lynda Carter say (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDEPpiy97oU) how good Melissa was at her first performance.

How about that Make it Reign Trailer though?, looks as if it might be another dark episode.
