Supergirl has to try to take down herself this episode.
A cult has sprung up in her name, with the people whom she has saved in the past worshiping her. At first, Kara was simply upset that someone was worshiping her instead of her true God, Rao. But soon she realizes that this cult is dangerous, as people are putting themselves into danger in order to become closer to her, because she will come to save them. When the leader of this cult decides to plant a bomb under a stadium, in order for Supergirl to come save them, she is unsure of whether or not she will be able to. It becomes even more dangerous for her when she cannot even destroy the alien bomb because it contains Kryptonite.
Ruby and her mother Samantha are having issues, as Samantha’s new job is taking away most of her time, and Ruby wants her mother to hear her practice for her talent show. Sam thinks that her having to put her daughter on the sideline makes her a poor mother, but Lena quickly makes her realize that she is doing what is best for her and her daughter.
Alex is still struggling with the fact that Maggie does not want children while she desperately wants one, and the talent show with Ruby seems to break her. She is not sure whether or not she can marry someone who is adamant against having children.
This episode was amazing as usual. I often hate cults in TV, but this episode seemed to tackle them in a more respectful way. Supergirl was happy that she could change the lives of these people by saving them, but she was more angry that her God Rao was being tarnished by the people worshiping her instead. Alex’s emotional battle over having kids is showing what can really happen in a relationship when people have different thoughts about an issue, and so I appreciate Supergirl for showing this side of love. This episode was simply everything that I could have hoped for it to be.
Overall Rating: 6/5
