Kris and Stephanie discuss the Lena Luthor highlights of episode 2×19 “Alex,” including phone calls, trickery, and regret. This podcast episode contains ludicrous luxuriating in Lena Luthor and her (non-canonical) love of Kara. More typical episode discussion is still to come.
Kris and Stephanie discuss what worked and what didn’t work for them in episodes 2×14 through 2×17 of Supergirl, as well as the musical crossover episode of The Flash, “Duet.” We have a lot of love for 2×15 “Exodus” as well as Kara and Barry’s musical team-up, but not so much for a particular Daxamite’s storyline.
