O Brother Where Art Thou Gallery

Jon Cryer's Lex Luthor has arrived! We've seen the key art poster for his prison-clad version before but today we are geting our first look at Lex in an episode! He appears to be back at his mansion with Lena and a Department of Corrections officer. Lex also seems to be doing his best Professor Xavier impression too as whatever ailment he has seems to have taken his ability to walk. Though when it comes to Lex Luthor you never know what kind of trick he could be playing. 99% of the time he's the smartest person in the room. The photos don't preclude our Girl of Steel either! It looks like Kara and J'onn are going to be going up against a stronger, or at least better armed Manchester Black! Check out the photos below:

Ok...so. From the pictures I NOW get what Lena meant last night when she said something about it might being too late, when Mrs. T said they could now take a break. Could she have found out that her bro was ill, and been trying to find a cure? Hmmm....

Either that, or he's going to "insist" he's the first test trial--being he's so hell-bent on defeating the supes. But, he does look sickly.
#24 Lack of action...Kelly 2019-03-11 12:58
It isnt a lack of cgi shots, that is the $$ thing, it is a very noticeable absence of hand to hand fighting from Supergirl. Almost no stuntwork has been needed for Melissa since "Ahimsa" episode. It is very very strange to me. Honestly until this last episode it has looked like the Alex Danvers action hour. I have to say Bob laid out my thoughts of season almost perfectly. To the point of not really wanting to discuss it.

This is definitely not true. There has been good amount of Supergirl action. We have seen her lift a warehouse. Sundays ep we Saw her destroy a satellite bending it so a beam from it didnt hit the White House. Not quite sure what show you watch. But it does not Seem to be this one or you are skipping some episodes entirely. The Dreamer ep had very little Supergirl action i agree with that.
But had some little cool moments of Kara using her powers as her alter ego.


I think you should revisit some episodes from earlier seasons. The pilot, even though it had to introduce the entire cast and tell Kara's origin story, still had two titanic battles between Supergirl and Vartox. She fought Reactron three times in episode 3, and each battle was excellent. The two part season 2 debut had amazing fight sequences with Metallo. The final episode of season 2 had a prolonged battle between Supergirl and Superman, and the big fight between Supergirl and Rhea. There are several other examples of action heavy episodes, including of course the season 3 desperate struggle with Reign.

The show has taken a dramatic, intentional pivot away from showing Supergirl in action, using her powers to face dangerous adversaries. This decision is a terribly frustrating one because it neuters the very thing that makes the show special. When your show is called "Supergirl" and has a main character with astounding powers and decades of comic book history using them to fight enemies that no one else can, spending an entire season refusing to include those battles makes no sense. Without Supergirl fighting powerful bad guys, the show is simply a youth soap opera.

I agree, I have been extremely disappointed in the lack of action from Supergirl.

The preview they just showed had literally zero shots from the press release for episode 15. Did they show the wrong preview?? Looked much more likely to be the preview for House of L with the flashbacks to him walking, and being on trial...

...The almost action-free season of a superpowered alien woman trying to protect her adopted planet continues. There's more action in afternoon soap operas. Why? The show is about a woman who can fly, has great strength, is fairly impervious to injury and has vowed to use those gifts to help humanity. People who tune in have a reasonable expectation of seeing those remarkable powers put to use. This season is winding down, and so far there has been less action featuring Supergirl in the entire season than in many single episodes of season one. That is outrageous...
While I do agree with most of your post, I have to wonder if part of the lack of Supergirl action in comparison to Season 1 is due to the difference in funding. It's hard to compete with a major network that has the ability to plop down a million just for the pilot episode alone.

My concern is more about how the action scenes that SG does have are written. When I see SG slowly walking toward a mere human with a gun, the weakest of three villains, during a confrontation in order to set-up a situation where the newbie superhero saves her for the second Ep in a row, that's when I do a lot of eye rolling. Did the bullets bouncing off of SG look cool? Yep they did. Was SG shown in a fighting situation? Again, yep. But I would much rather have seen her take on the most formidable of the villains, ie., the Hat and reasonably fail than continue with contrived scenarios in order to build other characters and show their relevance.

Lack of money I can throw my support behind - poor writing and lack of attention to the main character - not so much.

I bet Lex will trick Lena into Capturing Supergirl because he needs something from Kara for his cure. Lena will think it's a family obligation and will do it to help Lex as long as Supergirl doesn't get hurt. But you know Lex will have other plans. Meanwhile, Red Daughter's handlers will also be hitting up Lena for help and both versions of Kara will end up in peril but will "re-combine" to not only get free and save the day, but to defeat Lex's plans. Fun thinking about where this story might go ... :-)

The combined galleries for the next two episodes have a total of five pics of Supergirl in costume, not including one where she is looking away from the camera. All five pics show her...wait for it...LOOKING CONCERNED! The almost action-free season of a superpowered alien woman trying to protect her adopted planet continues. There's more action in afternoon soap operas. Why? The show is about a woman who can fly, has great strength, is fairly impervious to injury and has vowed to use those gifts to help humanity.

I love the Supergirl character. I have for decades. I was incredibly thrilled when this show was announced. I was an early member of this site and an enthusiastic supporter of the show when it was criticized in the early going. I was more than willing to endure the spotty writing and inconsistencies of the show because it brought to life a character I adored, and Melissa was perfect for the role. Now, I actually approach each new episode with a feeling of despair. This season has strayed so far from what the show should be that I just can't fathom what the producers could possibly be thinking. Think seriously about all that has transpired this season. Would anything be substantially different if Supergirl never appeared in a single scene? The fact that I can even broach that topic is a scalding indictment of the writers and producers. Whatever the show has become in season four, it has very little to do with the character of Supergirl.


Not much anyone could add to your well thought out concerns and comments. You are not alone if that's any solace to you. You may try your choice of beverage while watching the show. I find it helps dull the pain.

I wonder if the reason they are not putting SuperGirl in many battles where she might get seriously injured is because where would she go for medical help. Colonel Haley has banned her from the DEO which has all the equipment and medical transportation needs for SuperGirl as well as the solar bed needed for her treatment. I don't think the writers really thought this plot out about the repercussions of the mind wipe and the banishment of Supergirl from the DEO.


What about going to Lena for help (she did help during her coma)? That would certainly make for an interesting story. Especially since we don't know how she really feels about Supergirl. They haven't been in contact since season 3 (besides the little encounter at LCorp at the beginning of season 4). Supergirl falling on her balcony at LCorp or showing up at her condo. I wonder what Lena's reaction would be?


Hmmm, that would be interesting Kara D. Lena would be able to build the solar lights she would need but with her brother Lex being there that would really be one story line - it would be interesting to see what would happen.
