This really didn't feel like a season finale, mostly because this show has been very consistent in wrapping up its seasons with a clear resolution for the heroes (unlike Flash). So I'm left on edge, for Brainy and for what Lex is up to.

But I enjoyed this overall, even with Lena's heart to heart with Andrea.

Your girlfriend told you to get a mask, Alex. A bit of dramatic eye make-up doesn't serve the same purpose. You still look like you, but wearing a knock-off of Oliver's hood.

I don't get the whole bit about J'onn and M'gann having to disguise themselves as Supergirl to distract the bad guys. Why? Either they could detect any of her movements (including wandering around the apartment) or they can't, unless she is using her powers. If it's the latter than taking the bus with Lena without decoys would have been no different that taking the bus with Lena while your friends were out there being involved in needless fights.

As much as Kara is the paragon of hope and all that jazz, I don't believe she could convince every one of the two billion Obsidian users to tune out and turn off. No way.

I'm still waiting for Miss Tessmacher to turn around and betray everybody again, because that's just what she does. I'm not buying the reformed act, at least not at the moment.

As much as I've liked Lex this season, the rest of the Obsidian/Leviathan plot has felt really underwhelming and underbaked. Somehow, I don't think it turned out to be what the initially envisioned.
