The fall season introduced us to a new superhero.
Supergirl Season 1 is off to a great start, with a great mix of drama, action, and humor. We've had a chance to get to know the characters and have seen the promise the series holds for the future.
Our report card takes a look at the season so far with the best and worst episodes, the most heroic moment, the biggest reveal, and more!
Check out our picks and let us know yours!
Supergirl started off strong and only got better as the season went on, so it is not surprising that Supergirl Season 1 Episode 8 is our choice for best episode. Astra returned equipped with a device that makes her immune to kryptonite, Cat learns the truth about Supergirl, and we are left with quite a cliffhanger as Non prepares to wreak havoc on Lord Technologies. Let's just say we can't wait to see what happens next!
We truly loved them all, but decided to go with Supergirl Season 1 Episode 5. While we completely understand the reasoning behind airing it out of order, it made the James/Lucy subplot less interesting since we already knew they got back together. Plus, we would rather not see Kara attempt babysitting again.
Best Fight Scene
There have been some incredible fight scenes so far, but the best were between Supergirl and Reactron on Supergirl Season 1 Episode 3. Reactron was a formidable foe, and very nearly killed Supergirl, but in the end she managed to stop him, something her cousin had never been able to do.
We spent all season trying to figure out Hank and his glowy red eyes. We didn't know if he was a good guy or a bad guy, but his true identity (and allegiance) was finally revealed in Supergirl Season 1 Episode 7. Hank revealed himself to be J'onn J'onzz, aka the Martian Manhunter, and the entire scene was awesome. Only Alex knows the truth, but we assume it is only a matter of time before Kara finds out.
Most Surprising Character Development
Cat could have easily just been a one note evil boss who was nothing more than a thorn in Kara's side. Instead, she has grown into one of the most interesting characters in the series. She's smart, witty, and has developed into quite the mentor for Kara. We're excited to see the role she will play now that she knows Kara is Supergirl!
Super Power We Wish We Had
Sure, we'd all love to be able to fly or possess super strength, but the super power we're most jealous of is Kara's alien metabolism! If only we could eat sticky buns every day and not gain any weight.
