No consensus yet.
Probably the only person sleeping well tonight is Nia, who's ready to flex more of that superhero muscle in her dreams.
Much like Alex's lesbianism, Nia being trans isn't the POINT of her character, and yet it's still a part of her. It's not dwelled on or ignored. And for all this show can get wrong, I think this is something they're getting right with both of these women.
Clearly, Earth-90's superheroes have failed not only this city, but their universe.
Outside of big structural issues, however, "Bunker Hill" is a really fun episode to watch on a scene-to-scene basis.
Supergirl is finally diving into Nia's powers and, miraculously, finally giving Brainy a little bit more to do than replace Winn.
Kevin does an excellent job at setting up what's to come past the mid-season, but also a great job at wrapping up story lines effectively
Things are different now and perhaps that demands a different kind of hero existing in a different kind of story. So I, for one, am actually excited about the new turn Supergirl is taking.
I'm looking forward to watching Nia continue to learn more about her powers and grow as a character. She clearly needs a mentor and this is a great way for Kara/Supergirl to mature herself.
Truth be told, the DEO could have also saved itself a lot of effort by asking Manchester Black for Agent Liberty's identity.
The episode saw Kara achieve both a major victory and a stunning loss.
