â€œWhenâ€™s the last time we were this lucky? Lucky enough that Cadmus is moving their most valuable prisoner. A guy the DEOâ€™s been unable to find for over fifteen years and he just lands in our lap?â€ Mon-El was the voice of reason during last nightâ€™s Supergirl episode. (Can you believe it?) After a very light-hearted and fun episode last week with Mr. Mxyzptlk, we got a heart-wrenching episode with cringe-worthy moments involving the return of Jeremiah Danvers. We were reminded that if everything seems too good to be true, it is and that you canâ€™t always trust family (especially if they have been kidnapped with the enemy for the last decade).
While the end of last weekâ€™s episode saw Kara and Mon-El FINALLY together (and I mean together), the couple continued to butt heads; beginning with Mon-El going against her wishes to keep their relationship quiet for a bit. Now I can understand why he wanted to tell everyone because heâ€™s proud of their relationship and he doesnâ€™t want to hide it, but I think he could have waited more than 10 seconds before blurting it out. I did like when Jâ€™onn and Alex mentioned theyâ€™d have to report to H.R. I guess the DEO isnâ€™t that much different from a regular office.
Mon-El was the first one to question Jeremiahâ€™s return and he made some great points, such as receiving an alert from Cadmus about moving a weapon when they donâ€™t usually get notified unless Cadmus poses the message on purpose. Thatâ€™s a red flag for sure. He just went about sharing his theory in the wrong way. When Kara told him to drop it, he shouldnâ€™t have brought it up at the dinner. It was interesting to hear Jeremiah tell him in the hallway that he knows who he really is. I was surprised Mon-El answers with â€œAnd?â€ rather than what do you know or why? To which Jeremiah responses, â€œThatâ€™s it. I know who you are and I doubt Kara would like the truth.â€ Would she not like to know the truth because heâ€™s been lying or because of who he is or rather was? He has changed since the first time we met him. Either way I need this secret to be revealed soon because itâ€™s already episode 14 and itâ€™s just going to be another complication between Kara and Mon-El. They are already having an issue every episode that needs to be reconciled at the end of the episode in her apartment. How will this change everything? Ugh, I cannot handle the drama.
I loved Winn and Mon-El in this episode. Their friendship is so great and I like how Winn believed Mon-Elâ€™s suspicions when no one else did. How cute is it that they share a Netflix account! I also liked how Winn was there to give Mon-El advice for his relationship with Kara. In the end, Mon-El used it and listened to what Kara needed. He had a lot of character development in this episode.
It is important to note that this was yet another episode without James. When Kara said, she was taking the other fly-guy on the mission, I automatically thought of the Guardian, but she was talking about Martian Manhunter (who I was happy to see out in the field). Is it possible that the team is getting too big and James just isnâ€™t a part of it anymore? Season 2 is revolving more around the DEO rather than CATCO, so he hasnâ€™t been influential to the plot. In several ways Mon-El has taken his air time. We see him hang out more with the team, Winn, and heâ€™s the love interest for Kara. I hope next season sees a better storyline for James.
The ending posed several questions: Why is Jeremiah helping Cadmus? He didnâ€™t look like he had much remorse for going against his daughters. You can tell he still cares for them, but it doesnâ€™t look like heâ€™s being held against his will. So whatâ€™s his deal? And what kind of spaceship was that? His betrayal will definitely change everyoneâ€™s dynamic, especially Kara and Alex, but Kara proved her strength by going into the DEO after learning the list of the aliens was taken by Cadmus. I hope Alex will find a way to overcome his betrayal or learn why he is acting the way he is. I certainly want to know why!Â I canâ€™t wait till next week!
