So much talking. It's basically a bland soap-opera now.

I just can't deal with 'Leviathan' as a villain name -- it just makes me think of Supernatural, every time it's uttered.

I'm glad the Lena villain reveal is out. I'm sorry they took the character down this road, but I guess it was inevitable.

AV Club: Things get frosty as Supergirl sends Lena and Kara to the Fortress of Solitude

wow, the emotional stuff really hit hard. perhaps a newer viewer wouldn't feel as affected, but if you've been keeping up with this show since the beginning, Lena's speech about betrayal reflects all of us repeated shouting at the screen for Kara to tell her, and Alex's plead to Kelly about healing really reminded me of how much she has been through (oh Sanvers...). I wasn't as keen on J'onn and Malefic, and that was a pretty quick jump to forgiveness, but I guess that's how Martian mind bonding works?

also, I laughed at "earth bender"

Lena and Kara: that is always a powerful pairing. Wow. Yeah, Kara kinda did treat her like a villain, but at the same time, she's her cousin's enemy's sister and that has to give you some reasons.

I enjoyed the Den of Geek snark:
" Kara does what any Krypton come to Earth would do: take their girlfriend on a date to the Fortress of Solitude.

This would obviously be a great date location choice (Lena totally nerds out) if this were an earnest get-together and not one actually a) dictated by the need to find a weapon that will work against Rama "Tremors" Khan and b) all a guise for Lena to get her hands on Myriad, the Kryptonian weapon that Astra used way back in Season 1 to turn the people of National City into compliant drones. Um... I'm sure Lena has a kind and thoughtful use for it?
