Supergirl’s second season has come to an end, and we discuss what worked and didn’t work for us in the final five episodes. Here’s the scoop: we really enjoyed “Ace Reporter” as well as the wonderfully different and complex older female characters who were around at the end of the season. Unfortunately, we cannot get behind the writers’ attempt to transform Mon-El into a hero, and we are disappointed that so many characters played by people of color seemed to be shuffled to the side to make room for his storyline.
Lena Luthor knows how to deal with those pesky Daxamites. For that, and many other reasons, we love her. Kris and Stephanie share their appreciation for Lena’s engineering accomplishments in the Supergirl Season 2 finale, as well as offer some suggestions to Kara regarding with whom and how she might spend her time now. 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 share their love for Lena being so over those silly Daxamites in Supergirl 2×21 “Resist.” But we couldn’t resist talking about Daxamite fashion, which led to quite a bit of hysterical laughter. We’re very sorry. 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 share their feelings about Lena Luthor in Supergirl episode 2×20 “City of Lost Children,” including her lunch date with Kara. This podcast episode contains ludicrous luxuriating in Lena Luthor and her (non-canonical) love of Kara. More typical episode discussion is still to come.
The Helsinki series of Orphan Black comics reveals the incident that established the “Helsinki protocol,” which was referenced in Season 3 of the series. We discuss the context we have for the storyline from both the series and the first run of comics, and how Helsinki give us new context for what we’ve seen on the series.
Lena Luthor has so many feelings, and so do we! Kris and Stephanie talk about what may be happening just below the text, and what is definitely happening on Kara and Lena’s faces. (This podcast episode contains ludicrous lamenting, leching, and luxuriating in the (non-canonical) romance between Kara and Lena. Discussion of what actually happened in the episode is still to come.)
Kris and Stephanie discuss what worked for them (Luthors! Danverses! Is that the plural?) and didn’t work for them (Creepy, jealous men!) in episodes 2×10 through 2×13 of Supergirl. They also share listener feedback and briefly discuss two current Supergirl comic runs, Supergirl: Being Super and The Adventures of Supergirl.
Dutch and D’avin retrieve Johnny and Pawter from Old Town and plan to go after Jelco in Spring Hill. However, Jelco proves to have information relevant to Dutch’s interests, so she saves him from the angry people of Old Town, who take Dutch hostage instead. Pawter tries to out-maneuver Delle Seyah Kendry, and she is faced with a tough decision.
With Sabine revealed as a Six, Dutch and the team try to interrogate her for information about Khlyen and the purpose of Level VI. However, Sabine’s encounter with D’avin changed her, and he struggles with how to handle her as their captive. Meanwhile, Johnny asks Pawter to order a warrant for the person who designed the wall that surrounds Old Town.
When Johnny escorts Pawter to speak with her parents’, they must respond to an attack against the Simms family. Meanwhile, D’avin tries to resist Khlyen dipping into his thoughts to gather information for his investigation into D’avin’s past. In this episode, we give our quick reviews of Killjoys 2.05 “Meet the Parents.” We hope to release our more in depth discussion soon.
