There are echoes of Alien Nation and Predator in this week’s episode, which effectively employs flashback to fill in back story for everyone. Unlike other shows the technique is employed correctly to broaden and deepen our bond with these characters, while showing the true nature of others. With a surprising yet welcome appearance from Dean Cain’s Jeremiah Danvers, as well as topical pops at film stars and royalty alike. Supergirl still proves to have something in reserve as we head towards the season finale.

Described as a mash-up of Alien Nation and Ayer’s own End of Watch, the cop […]
