Grab the clutch of tension in reality and your glasses of the world’s allegories. Supergirl is back! No time for “previouslies”. Let’s start straight on what happens to the big players in season 4.
Alex and Brainy: While Alex feels comfortable with his new position as director of DEO, Brainy’s essential Brainy-ness has her at her breakpoint Who would have guessed that an intellect on the 12th level would have trouble working on earth in 2018 … other than all.
Brainy makes an effort by putting on a Winnie shirt, Alex admits that she is struggling with change, and in the end they agree that they both miss their friends and need to start working together. This should be a fun time-raising forward, especially if Brainy keeps his personal image inductor in place to spare us all the blue / white hair combinations.
Even Alex, who adopted a fantastic new day-to-night hairstyle, dates back. I still miss Maggie, but if Alex has found a happy place, I’m happy with her.
On : The wish of his father for the promotion of peace has led him to a support group for aliens concerned about the growing hostility surrounding them. They are struggling to find work and cope with the increased verbal abuse, and many have bought L-Corp’s new imaging inducers, which enable them to project a human appearance.
The singer’s quieter stiller character is a slightly different character, almost as if David Harewood shines his performance based on the gentle tones that Carl Lumbly took to Myr’s role last season. It’s a fascinating change, and hopefully one that will hold on.
Lena and James: L-Corp can make a mint-selling image inverter to foreigners who want to assimilate, but James and Lena’s happiness is confused by threats to James’s actions like Vigilante. Even though he does not want Lena to draw strings for him, she lives her mother with chess game in her prison cell until Lillian gives rise to incriminating information about former associates.
Lena then uses that information with DA, who lets James fall, provided he never returns to his vigilant way. (Unbelievable, James teaches this from a news report and not herself.) Lena does not tell James about her role in all this, and if superhero programs have learned one thing, then no secrets can ever be revealed and continues to destroy relationships. So, no future problems on the horizon for these two, no sir!
Oh, and Lena’s chumminess with her mother may have been fake, but her coolness towards Supergirl looked very correct, meaning the rift continues the hearts) in season 4.
Kara and Nia : At the beginning of season 4, Kara finds blossoming, and it’s exciting to see her sunny optimism at full force ̵
1; especially when you remember the depression craze she was involved in at the beginning of season 3. She blows meteors, stops artificial lifts, saves vintage trains in Kaznia and save little girl balloons. She also kills it in her reporting job at CatCo, which we saw a little last year.
Even more delightful? She serves as a mentor to beginner reporter Nia Nal (Nicole Maines, a roaring trailblazer himself). Nia is strong and genuinely nervous when she talks during her first meeting with Kara, who once again was exactly this kind of light and serious and nervous. And gets this: Nia took Kara a latte just as she likes it, according to Cat Grant’s advice.
I will not lie, friends. I had to take a moment with this for my heart! Cat Grant will not only remember Kara coffee preferences, but she appreciates Kara / Supergirl enough to share this knowledge with the new rental to work with her. Calista Flockhart may have been absent for seasons, but she still throws a long shadow.
Kara dives right into the mentor when Nia blows her chance to own a story about Central City’s fashion industry. Here Nia hopefully absorbed Kara’s advice to bathe her fear and make some own waves. (Next Page: Kara checks its privilege)
