    The thing with Brainy working with Lex Luthor is interesting, but the rest of the episode felt like a lot of gobbledygook.

    New post-Crisis earth - same old dull stories. Lex and Lena should not be the only intriguing characters worth watching on a show called Supergirl.

    I was hoping post crisis Lena would be changed but nope she still doing "I feel betrayed" junk.
    So tiresome. :rolleyes:

    Nice seeing Jesse Rath's sister Meaghan as a version of Bainiac 5.

    Preview scene next episode. Winn returns. This is the first of 2 parts. Unfortunately the February 2 episode is a rerun so at least two weeks before the conclusion.

    Interesting that both "Batwoman" and this show dealt this week with doppelgangers left over from the Earth-Prime merger during "Crisis", with a good version of a baddie on "Batwoman" and a bad version of a good guy on this show.

    The doppelgangers don't make a lot of sense. Since things were changed at the beginning of time and fewer Earths were formed there shouldn't be doppelgangers from merged Earths. The Earths didn't merge, they never existed. It's just that somethings and places that originally existed on different Earths now happened on Earth Prime. If the Earths actually merged in the present then you might have doppelgangers.

    Another point. Are there only going to be doppelgangers of the characters on the various shows? If doppelgangers exist, why aren't there thousand or millions of them? Why isn't there a vast homeless population of doppelgangers?

    Supergirl's 100th episode airing February 23 plot per TVLine:
    Mxyzptlk returns with a proposition for Kara: What if she could go back in time and tell Lena her secret before Lex did? Would things turn out different? Looking back over key moments throughout the series, Kara must decide if she wants to change history to become friends with Lena again.”

    Odette Annable (Reign), Chris Wood (Mon-El), and Sam Witwer (Agent Liberty) guest star.

    Haven't yet seen this past weekend's episode, but I did have to laugh along with Brainiac's "Leroy Jenkins" charge.

    I don't always care for Thomas Lennon, but he was a much better Mister Mxyzptlk than the actor who played the character in the second season. And I'm glad the end result was freeing Supergirl from her guilt around not telling Lena her secret identity.

    It was nice to see Supergirl in the old uniform, too, though the wig they used to replicate her pre-bangs haircut was terrible.

    I was glad for that result, though Supergirl putting Lena on notice seemed a bit heavy-handed by her.

    Of course, if Mxyzptlk really wanted to make everything "right" he could have had Lena experience some or all the alternate realities as well. Then she would have understood what was at stake.
