Plot points:

  • Nia Nal’s powers are revealed.
  • Manchester Black’s creepy horror movie home invasion
  • Agent Liberty’s poor choice of secret hideouts on his own property
  • The new President isn’t evil, but is a bit of a populist ass.

Discussion points:

  • What does “Cards up” mean?
  • The possibility of weaponized shouting and/or spit in the right Superhands.
  • The incredible durability of Lockwood Steel (nicely surviving a Super drop test)
  • Supergirl winning the battle but losing the PR war.

Supergirl S4E07 Review: “Rather the Fallen Angel”

This week, the episode is all about plans!

  • Lena trying to give Subject-0331 powers
  • Agent Liberty trying to kill Supergirl and blow up the “Statue of Liberty for Aliens”
  • Manchester Black’s trading Supergirl’s life for a chance to kill Agent Liberty.

Do the plans all make sense? We’ll leave it to you to decide. (But the answer is no.)
