’Supergirl’: ‘Survivors’ Review

Previous1 of 6

supergirl-204-reviewSupergirl  was heavy on the alien presence last week, with the reveal that Lynda Carter’s President character is not what she seems while we as well as J’onn J’onzz witnessed the debut of Sharon Leal’s M’gann M’orzz a.k.a. Miss Martian in the new season.

This episode focuses heavily on the two Martians getting to know each other and forming a bond. But it’s a bigger challenge than J’onn was prepared for at first. In this week’s episode, Kara must deal with the villainous Roulette (guest-star Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Dichen Lachman) who is running an underground alien fight club that a surprising face was taking part of.

Meanwhile in her Danvers life, Kara must deal with Snapper’s latest tough love lessons on another day at CatCo. While that’s all going on, Mon-El tries to adapt to Earth step by step as he gets to know what people do for fun and more in the “Earth 1-0-1” manual. After her stellar introduction last week, the episode features Alex and Maggie fleshing out their relationship.

With so much happening in this episode, there’s a lot that we want to break down and discuss. So let’s go through the top 5 highlights and important moments of the Supergirl Season 2 episode: “Survivors”

#5: Mon-El Tries To Adapt To Earth

    I was totally shocked by the ending. They threw the cards down for M’gann really quickly. This was a really good episode. Tons of action. I was pretty impressed with the writers giving little hints about the limits to Mon-El’s powers. They clearly show lighter gravity on Daxem by the way Mon-El hops into the ship. Great explanation on why he isn’t as strong as a Kryptonian.
