Refreshingly relevant, "American Alien" introduces an intimidating new villain without skimping on the social commentary.
"American Alien" feels like a culmination of where Supergirl has been headed for a long time.
The episode was elevated by the performances.
American Alien establishes a few new dynamics while also orienting viewers to where each character is three months after the events of the season 3 episode 23... There is a lot of potential set up on this episode, and much to be excited for.
American Alien sets Supergirl's fourth season up on a nice direction with intriguing new villains, cast reshuffling and an overdue main plot thread.
This episode reminded me more of Season One, when Supergirl was about hope and truth and the battle between optimism and reality.
American Alien is far and away Supergirl's strongest premiere yet.
It's refreshing to see Supergirl lean into its political themes, which feel more timely and compelling than ever.
The jig is up!
If a seemingly evil Supergirl emerges and begins using the same powers Supergirl has to wreak havoc, paranoid humans could begin to consider Supergirl an enemy as well. Kara is going to need all the help she can get in Season 4.
"Alien lives matter" will undoubtedly be utilized as a slogan at some point this season as things get more political.
Supergirl season four opens with a great episode that encapsulates so much of what the show does best that's both solid in its own right and sows the seeds of a season's worth of conflict.
After a disappointing finish to a generally underwhelming Season 3, it's good to see Supergirl quickly bouncing back this week. "American Alien" sets the stage for a promising conflict to come.
