As Kara does her best to convince Cat Grant that she’s not Supergirl, as Supergirl she has to do what she can to get Hank Henshaw back from Non. Meanwhile, James and Winn try to uncover some dirt on Maxwell Lord, only to be caught in the process.

A great episode with a good mix of drama and action without either dragging the other down. In fact, everything came together really well by the end. This is the type of thing every single episode should do of every series ever, really. If things don’t come together, or at least relate to one another, it feels too disjointed to be an entirely pleasant experience. Take note, everyone working in the television industry, or at least the writers.

I also really liked seeing a less confident Kara as everything seems to be falling apart around her. And at one point, she was so angry I thought for a moment that she was going to turn evil for a bit. This makes me kind of want to see an evil Supergirl, though it’s also a question of who would be able to stop her if she turned?
