I thought every time this B story relied on visuals, things worked out well. But at times, J'onn (and actor David Harewood) are reduced to narration, and it feels kind of campy. Overall, though, I enjoyed this storyline.
With drama this potent, dynamics this fun and questions this increasingly complex, I hope they take all the time they need.
Can't we just explore Alex and Maggie's relationship more, especially since it feels more organic and much better developed?
Emotions, feelings, the inevitable prejudices and soft spots that come from the development of strong, complicated characters...
I really wish I could go back in time, go into the Supergirl writers' room, and tell them to not go the Guardian route with James. It's kind of wrecking everything...
There are no shortage of threats, that's for sure.
Supergirl has been doing a pretty good job at tackling prejudice this season, and with J'onn, we're exploring a situation where someone is finding it hard to move past these ingrained biases.
While I don't have high hopes that the Guardian storyline can ever fully be salvaged, "We Can Be Heroes" at least takes a big step in the right direction.
One of the chief strengths Supergirl has as a show is its willingness to not only let its main characters have flaws, but to call them out on it.
In many ways, 'We Can Be Heroes' is an excellent testament to how far Supergirl has evolved since season 1.
