What a great episode!

Supergirl in costume for the entire episode.
Plenty of action.
Supergirl does not us her super power once but since she is a good person she is able to use her words to sway the Argo city council.

Multiple story lines with similar themes.

Action, adventure, love, redemption, self sacrifice.

All the good stuff that makes a good story.

Yes, I will talk about the non existent Elephant in the room.
In this episode they explored how People make hard decisions to keep others safe.
Alura is regretful of the harsh punishment of the Fort Razz prisoners.
However they do seem to be the worst of the worst and deserved punishment.
The ex con Alex confronts has served his time for murder and now has nothing but regret and is haunted by his past deeds.
He will never be a good man but he will never kill again.
Alex questions her need to risk her life to accomplish her assignments.
She wants to be a mother but is conflicted and feels the need to push herself to far in order to serve.

I could go on and on about all the good stuff in this episode.
Lena and Reign, Wynn and Ruby, Mon El and the sick child, Alex and Jon at the end.
Cliffhanger ending.

Amazing how the writers handled Social Justice issues by writing them into the story instead of shoehorning them in.

I am even starting to like Mon El

Well done Team Supergirl, I knew you could do it properly.
From the second worst episode written last week (Fallen from season one being the worst)to one of the best this season.
To think, last weeks episode almost made me quit the show.

I don't need this roller coaster ride.
Just good, well written episodes from now on please.

I was just about to write the same thing :D

Great episode with suprisingly little action in it.  Goes to show the power of good writing :D

And completely agree with your choice of scenes.  Lena and Reign, Jo'nn and Alex, and even Mon-El and the child (THAT was a great scene, and I even found myself saying "Man, I LOVE the tranformation in Mon-El).

THAT is what a Supergirl episode should feel like EVERY week.  Heroism, sacrifice, duty, camaraderie, this is what makes superhero stories worth telling.  And this week, they nailed it.

If there is one criticism I would make, is that the Alex thread did feel a little weak.  But tying it back to an event in earlier in the season was a really excellent touch - and I'm glad they resisted the temptation to make the sheriff the ACTUAL person trying to kill Alex.  But, it didn't really detract from the overall episode.

Seeing the "mysterious priestess" reveal when Kara goes to the council meeting was brilliant too imo.  Helps tie everything together (nice cameo by Tim Russ also :D).  And clever in that she wasnt the one who blocked Kara, even though it appears to go against what she plans.  Could we be seeing her play a longer game and be a player in season 4?

The pseudo-ticking clock element to the episode added some heightened tension to the story also, and WHAT A FRICKING LAST SHOT!  Reign exclaiming "Just in time" and then just rushing Kara!  AWESOME ENDING!



Team Supergirl you really picked up the ball the after the massive fumble of the last episode (WHY OH WHY can't you keep this level more often???).  

So kudos for the episode and REALLY looking forward to the final few episodes :D

Peace.

Hey, 3X19 got us to 3X20 and that is a great thing!  The writers are the stars of this season.  And when you give good actors great scripts magic happens!

I just want to know why we were subjected to 3X19?

Is it so we would appreciate 3X20 so much more?

While I understand the logic behind this theory (a low first, makes a high feel better), I am perfectly fine with cutting out ALL the chaff episodes and just having the quality of 3x20 all the time :D

The first 12 or so episodes this season were fantastic and prove they can do it : )  

Peace.
