Do not read past this point unless you have watched up to season 2 episode 1 of Supergirl.
This was a great first episode for this season. It started off with what ended the season 1 finale, with Supergirl and Martian Manhunter flying after a mysterious falling object while at the same time making sure that it doesn’t hurt anyone. When it lands they see that it is a pod of Kryptonian origin much like the one Kara rode in to get to Earth. Kara opens it and the biggest mystery of last season is solved. Inside the pod is a man who is unconscious.
They bring him to the new DEO headquarters which Kara is upset she didn’t know about, and he stays there without waking up for the rest of the episode. I hope that he wakes up within the next two episodes because I really want to know who this guy is.
Kara goes on a date with James which is interrupted by a jet carrying a bunch of rich and famous people falls to Earth after one of its engines explodes. She is aided by Superman and together they save everyone on the jet. However when the two of them get to DEO headquarters they find out that it couldn’t have been an accident because of where in the atmosphere the engine exploded. Also Superman looks at the mystery Kryptonian.
Throughout the rest of the episode Supergirl/ Kara has to deal with James who is worried that she doesn’t love him, Cat Grant who wants Kara to announce her new vocation as soon as possible, and an assassin who is trying to kill Lena Luther (Lex Luther’s sister). Also this assassin hates aliens and considering all the superheroes in this world seem to be aliens except for a couple he literally hates Supergirl and Superman.
These problems are of course solved by the end of the episode. Kara decides to be a reporter after dealing with Lena Luther. Also the assassin was brought down after being shot in the chest by Lena Luther. Every thing is great for Kara. Also it seems that Superman/ Clark Kent is staying around National City to hang out with his cousin.
After the credits the assassin is shown in a dark room with a woman standing over him. He has tubes coming out of him. The woman tells him that she can either kill him or ensure that he lives. He tells her he wants to live using his eyelids and she presses a button. This injects some form of fluid into him. She calls him Metallo who is a super villain from the comics. I don’t exactly know who he is but I will find out eventually.
This episode was great. I can’t wait for the next one. If you liked this post and want to read similar posts on my blog in the future please either follow my blog or follow my Twitter.
