YAEL GROBGLAS (“JANE THE VIRGIN”) GUEST STARS — Psi (guest star Yael Grobglas), a thief with psychic powers, attacks National City.

[quote name="DraftingDrafter"][quote name="Kelly"]I think the Alien Detection Device is more than enough proof that she does not trust aliens. Each time Supergirl, not Kara, but Supergirl has confronted her about her family, her first thought is to immediately go to Superman and Lex.

But we haven't seen or heard anything about the device since that episode. So how can we use something that has been seemingly tossed aside as evidence of her distrust?
How many times has Supergirl confronted Lena about her family? The only time that comes to mind is when she told Lena her mother was the head of Cadmus.
It seems that you're basing your claim of her distrust of aliens on a device that is no longer around and a confrontation that has only happened once (unless there was another time that I'm forgetting).

Im wondering about if the alien detection device would work on Samantha/Reign. The DEO clearly show they can detect kryptonian signatures but nobody was alerted that there was anything odd about Sam. So Im guessing her biology only manifests at special times.

When would we have heard more...she used it on Rhea, and then they were fully into making the device that took us into the finale. Sooooooo, when would they have brought it up again?


Oh man oh man oh man I completely forgot she used it on Rhea. My bad. But yeah after that it got scrapped. It might just stay as one of those loose ends that never gets tied up.


I'm not saying they have to do anything with it again, only that it shows that Lena has had influence on her way of thinking from her family, as well as the fact that she is willing to forgo the rights and privacy of some citizens over others in the name of profit and desire to know who is an alien and who isn't (which was the writers way of symbolizing the problems in our country as far as our immigration policy, and how this administration is interpreting it) which she stated in her dialogue with Kara the first time it was used.

All and all it is ALL speculation on my part. I just don't think they are going to waste Lena on just being Kara's BFF, there is just too much good drama there to use.

I agree, they should definitely do something more with Lena. I just don't see a clear mistrust of aliens in her they way you do. But I clearly see a wariness to trust ANYONE, alien or not. I think that's where the drama will unfold.

I think the Alien Detection Device is more than enough proof that she does not trust aliens. Each time Supergirl, not Kara, but Supergirl has confronted her about her family, her first thought is to immediately go to Superman and Lex. Although she knows Lex is a criminal, the simple fact that it was Superman that put him away, and Supergirl is his cousin immediately puts Supergirl in a different light for her. This might have toned down a bit as the series went on, but it was always just underneath the surface of their encounters with each other. The only time that I haven't seen that was in "Ace Reporter" when she saves Supergirl at the expense of her ex. I think the combination of Rhea, which was a HUGE betrayal, along with it being an Alien that put her brother away, even though she believes her brother should be put away (it is still hard to break those ties), as well as the very fact of the family she grew up in could have that lack of trust in aliens always below the surface.

The only thing that I might would make me think twice about the speculation is why doesn't she use it on new employees, like Samantha....OR Samantha being made in a lab makes her different enough to not go red on the device.

All and all it is ALL speculation on my part. I just don't think they are going to waste Lena on just being Kara's BFF, there is just too much good drama there to use.

Lena walks a very fine line of not wanting to be like her family, and her mistrust of aliens. Why did she end up helping Rhea, 1. Rhea needing help to get home, OFF OF EARTH, 2. and the possibility of a medical break thru, AND I'm sure 3. $$$$, she is a business woman after all. With all that happened...all that has done is make her distrust aliens even more.

If she ever finds out that the President is an alien, and Samantha is an alien, every single time she finds out that someone, especially those closest to her are aliens, that mistrust doesn't lessen, it will go through the roof IMO. AND possibly hit a crescendo when she finds out Kara's secret.

Interesting thoughts. But I feel like you're putting a lot of stress on her 'mistrust' of aliens. We haven't really had much proof of her mistrust (have we? did I forget something?), at most IMO she comes across as wary (thus the alien detection device). I guess I'm just trying to figure out why you believe she has such a large distrust of aliens when her interaction with them (that she knows of) has been limited.

Well as I said.....who knows with these crazy writers. I know that in the most recent comics Kara wants to help Psi, not sure her feelings on Reign. ;)


The writers are always the X-factor, the wild card if you will.

Sounds like this will be an exciting episode. It will be interesting to see how Psi plays with SuperGirl's mind and to see how SuperGirl defeats her (if she defeats her or Psi may last for a number of episodes). As for James, he mentioned in the interview that he would have a love interest this season. I think before the season is out that James and Lena will be a couple. As for Samantha working for Lena, in one of the summaries it stated that some will think Reign needs to be stopped while others will think she needs to be helped (my bet is that Lena is one of the ones that will think she needs to be helped - which will cause friction in the Kara - Lena relationship). Also, if James and Lena become a couple, James will side with Lena regarding the fact that Reign needs to be saved which will cause a division amongst our Superhero group). Only 10 more days to go.


I think it may be Lena that thinks she needs to be stopped and Kara thinks she needs to be helped. That's more in line with their characterization....but who knows. :)

I see your point Kelly - but I just wonder how much Samantha working for Lena will influence Lena into feeling sorry for her....but I also see your point.

Well as I said.....who knows with these crazy writers. I know that in the most recent comics Kara wants to help Psi, not sure her feelings on Reign. ;)
