One Of The Best Episodes
26 January 2017 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Kara (Mellisa Benoist) struggles with learning the truth about her mother, whilst also helping her boss Cat Grant (Calsita Flockhart) whose emails have being hacked to undermine her position at the company.

This is one of the better episodes, as it is clearly leading to a bigger picture, in fact I'd say it may be THE BEST episode, as it dealt with several plot lines rather than Supergirl just battling a villain of the week.

After last week featuring her less, we get bore Calista Flockhart in this episode, which is great, as I love her. She is the best thing in the show. Benoist ups her game, and gives her best performance of the series, as the struggling Kara. I think I've said that the last three episodes in a row!!

Somebody figures out Kara's secret, and we also get another cliffhanger too!! And for the first time, I wanted to watch the next episode straight away.

All in all one of the better (if not the best) episodes. Hopefully a sign of things to come!!
