Did You Know?


By a horrible coincidence, in Easter 2016, when the UK's Sky One had originally planned to show the first eight episodes back to back on Good Friday, on the 25th March, earlier terrorist attacks forced this episode to be withdrawn from broadcast that day. In the previous 5 days, there was the Istanbul suicide bombing on 21 March 2016, and on March 22, attacks at Brussels Airport. Also, in Britain, a Briton who had been missing in Brussels since Tuesday, was confirmed as having died in the bomb attacks in the Belgian capital, the Foreign Office had confirmed.The episode was put as an online only episode for Friday 25, but the Saturday 26 March scheduling of this episode was broadcast as planned. Understandably, due to the nature of the episode's content, it was not considered appropriate to show for Broadcast in the UK & Ireland on that day. See more »


The camera drone following Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and then evading her as she pursues it, flies as if it is being piloted. By its very definition, drone, it couldn't have zigzagged through all the skyscrapers like that. See more »


Supergirl: [handing Hank a piece of a drone] Thought I'd return this to you. I thought we were... clicking.
Hank Henshaw: Okay.
Supergirl: People who click don't spy on each other. I don't like being followed.
Hank Henshaw: If I were following you, Ms. Danvers, you would never know about it.

Kara must protect National City from a series of bombings and babysit Cat's son, while James is visited by Lucy Lane. I don't know about you? But i really loved the chemistry between Kara and Carter Cat's younger son i mean i really liked the way they communicated with each other plus we also saw a much more down to earth Cat Grant in this episode and the train sequence was simply epic and just amazing. Overall definitely one of best episodes of this show which is packed with alot of them since 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and of course and beyond as well.
