    • Kara’s white/human lookalike privilege
    • Possible future ramifications of J’onn’s disarming of the DEO
    • The delight at seeing Kara be, well, Kara Danvers, and discovering another of her kind in Nia
    • The literal other of her kind punching a tunnel in Kasnia for some reason
    • Lena one-upping her mother in the manipulation department
    • Brainy being kind of useless so far

    449 Supergirl S3E23 Review: "Battles Lost and Won"

    Finale it’s the Season Finally! Wait, was that confusing? So is this episode. Things happen, few of which make logical sense, except perhaps James’s decision to come out as Iron Man/Guardian.

    446 Supergirl S3E22 Review: "Make it Reign"

    While discussing the penultimate episode of season three, our hosts are flummoxed by Sam’s seeming Kryptonian as Reign but Human as Sam nature, since she totally came from Krypton as far as anyone can tell. What did the Goth Powerpuff Girls do to her?

    442 Supergirl S3E21 Review: "Not Kansas"

    The Supercast crew is very pro-Murderbot as long as they’re just interrupting potential love triangles. Our panel is also quite underwhelmed by yet another CW show attempting to solve gun violence in one episode, especially given that the DEO moving to non-lethal weapons very much depends on the definition of non-lethal for different alien species.

    440 Supergirl S3E20 Review: "Dark Side of the Moon"

    Back with another installment of Alex lies to Ruby, in an episode that shows Reign can actually border on interesting, and that Kara’s mom is still alive but not a hugger. And Winn and Ruby bond over having supervillain parents.

    436 Supergirl S3E19 Review: "The Fanatical"

    Once again the questionable tactics of lying to one’s friends, or lying to protect one’s friends, is discussed, along with (gasp) an actual good reason for James to want to be Guardian. And there’s a weird cult with funky rocks that create Worldkillers. Because that makes sense.

    431 Supergirl S3E18 Review: "Shelter from the Storm"

    Much discussion this week about how deception is maybe, just maybe, the wrong policy most of the time, especially when talking to the daughter of a supervillain. And Supergirl continues to cede the moral high ground to Lena in the “No one should be allowed to have Kryptonite” debate.

    427 Supergirl S3E17 Review: "Trinity"

    It’s all Super Science and Meanwhiles this week on the podcast as an eclipse for some reason affects Supergirl more than night does. Lena is suddenly mistrusted again because she used (gasp!) Kryptonite to contain Reign. Supergirl hates exercise! James chooses Lena over Supergirl. Winn gives Alex a Supersuit with magnets!

    423 Supergirl S3E16 Review: "Of Two Minds"

    Team Supergirl is out to stop Pestilence, while Lena works to determine how to remove Reign from Sam. You know, by electrocuting her repeatedly. Meanwhile, social media evidently doesn’t exist in the future.

    M’yrnn J’onzz attempts to mend his failing mental faculties but succeeds in putting the whammy on most of the DEO. Kara learns some cape-fu from Mon El but gives vent to a lot of her problems with him, under the influence(?) of the whammy. And Lena tries to find the dividing line between Sam and Reign.

    397 Supergirl S3E13 Review: "Both Sides Now"

    Team Supergirl goes after Purity with all the subtlety of Johnny Weir’s hair! The show gets a villian who’s as interesting as her alter-ego for a change, Mon-El and Imra carry the CW drama for the week, and Alex seems to be prone to drastic changes in behavior from one scene to the next.

    386 Supergirl S3E11 Review: "Fort Rozz"

    In the course of discussing this episode, our panel inaugurates a new segment called “Super Science!”, in which eye-roll inducing scientific whoppers are properly called out. In this case, gender-deterministic stellar radiation is chief offender, but there are several other contenders. All in service of a solid episode, funnily enough.

    Our panel discusses the Season 3 mid-season finale, covering Sam’s lack of work/super-villain balance, the possibility of finding a non-spiked beverage at Kara’s Holiday Party, and Supergirl’s failure to take her fight with Reign to somewhere other than a city full of people.

    354 Arrow S6E8 Review: "Crisis on Earth-X"

    A time like this comes only once per year: it’s crossover season. Team Speedy Arrowcast assembles to discuss the entire four-way crossover of DC’s TV universe (Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), and fields live questions from readers. At the end, only one co-host will be left standing.

    Important topics of discussions include DC’s stellar job at inclusivity and diversity, John Diggle’s superpower, why superheroes should never get married, our delight over the return of a familiar face, and our frustration over the story’s major death. Plus, we review reader suggestions for our new rating rubric.

    Our panel questions why the kids at Midvale High are oddly meh about the murder (or even just death) of a student, the fact that apparently of everyone at the DEO, only J’onn J’onzz owns a car, and the vagaries of Alex and Kara coming to terms with their recent relationship trouble.

    Also, Trish is clearly not over the Maggie-Alex breakup, because she just can’t stop calling Alex “Maggie.”
