A Young Kara and Alex Solve a Murder

The best part of Supergirl has always been the relationship between Kara and her sister, Alex. In this episode, titled "Midvale," Kara and Alex are front and center. However, it's not quite in the way fans might be expecting or even want. Although the episode opens on Kara and Alex traveling back to their hometown in present-day, things quickly switch to an almost entirely flashback-driven tale. The result is ... interesting. "Midvale" isn't quite a bad episode but doesn't feel much like Supergirl. more


The bond between Alex and Kara has always been the most compelling aspect of the series.  Their relationship is the centerpiece, and on Supergirl Season 3 Episode 6 we learned just how it came to be.  Unfortunately, it took a tragedy to bring them together, but at least something good came out of it.  Kara has endured so much loss in her life that it's quite amazing that she's adjusted to Earth as well as she has.

Alex's Development Even though they have broken up, Maggie will always hold a special place in ... more

Is 'Supergirl' Drowning in the Darkness?

As Supergirl season 3 began, we saw a much darker tone to the show than the previous seasons. While dealing with the loss of Mon-El, Kara began to question her humanity and the risk of being Kara Danvers, which threw her into a deep depression that she's still struggling to work her way out of. Though Kara is beginning to be happier than she's been since Mon-El's departure, the toll of the events of the previous seasons has changed her and she isn't quite the same character fans fell in love with.
