Supergirl steps away from the fantastical and taps into relevant social anxieties, carried by great performances.
What great fun - yet how sobering - to see so many recontextualized events from the past seasons. Living in National City doesn't look like much fun, but catching past guest stars and battles sure was.
I found myself equally appalled and amused for the entire hour, as the story so closely hewed to the narrative we see of real-world domestic terrorists here in the United States.
An effective look at the slippery slope from xenophobic rhetoric to outright violence.
This may yet be the bravest episode in the run so far. Jumping between timelines, back tracking through seasons and carrying a narrative line which is both unconventional and contentious.
Aside from one glaringly obvious plothole, 'Man of Steel' was another strong outing that offered something a little bit different to its predecessors and, in doing so, it provided us with some much-needed clarity surrounding Agent Liberty.
I guess since this is one of the last shows clinging desperately to the 22-episode format, they can afford a filler.
Much of what makes the episode compelling are a number of strong performances from guest and recurring actors and in particular from Sam Witwer, who plays Ben.
A good old dose of economic anxiety wrapped up in an introduction to the man behind Agent of Liberty's mask.
It pains me to say this but Supergirl Season 4 has lost its superhero appeal and its element of fantasy.
Yes, Kara remains in critical condition, but at least she'll remain that way in some fly new duds!
Sam Witwer holds up the whole episode by himself.
