Episode Info

The story of a missing woman named Izzy moves Kara to investigate, even though Snapper Carr has told her to leave the matter alone. When Kara and Mon-El check out the last place Izzy was seen, they end up thrust through a portal to another planet, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves as part of a trafficking ring run by Roulette. Meanwhile, Alex blames herself---and her new relationship with Maggie---for her sister's disappearance.

Critic Reviews for Supergirl Lives

Earlier in the season, I think an episode like this would have landed better for me. But after a big crossover event and a holiday hiatus, I wasn't expecting another story on foreign planet to be the drama of the week.

Supergirl kicked off the second half of Season 2 on solid footing, as the show downplayed super-heroics in favor of a more sci-fi-oriented adventure.

"Supergirl Lives" was another entertaining, action-packed, and thematically-focused episode of Supergirl Season 2. This show continues to be one of the best character dramas on TV.

Mon-El was also pretty great here. Initially, his fish-out-of-water alien shtick was played a bit too slapstick, but now he's really settling into a comfortable chemistry with Kara.

While adhering to the show's visual style, Smith managed to put his own stamp on the hour by making it as playful as possible. Watching the episode, there's a sense that everyone was having a ton of fun working on it.

"Supergirl Lives" is an episode that's ultimately at odds with itself. It tells a high-stakes intergalactic story yet uses a mostly light and comedic tone to do so. That leaves it feeling hollow but not entirely unenjoyable to watch.

How did any of us even survive without Alex and Maggie for so many weeks?

One of television's most reliable pleasures remains such, complete with off-kilter charm and solid action sequences. Still, the Kevin Smith-helmed "Supergirl Lives" feels a little empty.

After what felt like an impossibly long hiatus Supergirl is back and, for the most part, it hasn't lost the credible steam it had built up in the first part of it's second season.

Jul 25, 2018 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

Whether Smith will be able to bring even more "pure comic book" fun to another episode of Supergirl this season remains to be seen, but the director has proven to have an especially deft hand when it comes to the Arrowverse.
