This week's episode fills in plenty of the gaps that we've been curious about all season long, and both Lex Luthor and Red Daughter explode onto the scene as captivating new threats to the Maid of Might.
This episode posits that it has been an animating force behind the entire last season in a way that feels less like a revelation and more like confusion.
Usually, I'm not a fan of flashback episodes, but seeing rounded Red Daughter origin story from the big bad's viewpoint gave us all the answers we've been seeking throughout Supergirl Season 4.
In spite of the episode's strong frantic opening, its greatest strength lay in the fact that it finally slowed things down to tell the viewers a story that we have all wanted to see for quite some time now.
What's frustrating is that all of the poetry of the most poetic fate of any comic book character in existence was stolen.
Superman's arch-nemesis has also restored the momentum of a long-neglected subplot involving a Russian clone of Supergirl, which was meant to kick off an adaptation of the classic Elseworlds tale Superman: Red Son.
