TV Review : Supergirl : Season 2 : Episode 12 : Luthors

Up Up and Away Super Friends and DC Comics Fans , Here is my review of Supergirl Season 2 Episode 12 Luthors 1st a description of the episode : After Metallo breaks out of prison and frees Lillian Luthor, Lena is arrested by the police and blamed for the escape; Alex introduces Maggie to the gang. Now on to my review of this episode Warning Full Spoilers To Follow , Wow where do I begin with this episode. This was so good again this week!!! So much to go over between the Luthors , Supercorp , Mon-El , James Olsen , Kara and Supergirl , Alex introducing Maggie to the team it had it all and then some. 1st off we get flashbacks to the Luthors not one but 2 of them at the end of the beginning and at the end of the episode. Lionel Luthor was mention a few times and also James mentioning that Clark and Lex where once friends one of many references and small nods to Smallville the other Super series that was on The CW prior to Supergirl. This episode wad mainly focused on the Luthors Lillian and Lena plus we saw the return of Metallo also in this episode too as his Kryptonite was starting to break down more on that in a moment. Also we got one Sanvers scene in the episode as at the bar when Alex introduces the team from The DEO and Mon-El to Maggie. The main plot of the episode though was focused on the Luthors Lillian and Lena and through out the episode you got the sense that maybe Lena could be bad and align with Lillian. And when Lena got arrested that looked like the case but Kara was determined to prove that Lena is not a bad person. Also The Guardian fights Metallo which does not go well for James. Also Lillian shows Lena her brother Lex’s War Suit and says you have the power to destroy Supergirl and all Kryptonians but Lena refuses. So Supergirl finds the Luthors Lillian and Lena plus the Luthors Lillian and Lena in a underground hideout and a fight between them and Cyborg Superman Vs Supergirl happens and Kara does everything she can to take them down but Metallo Kryptonite is going critical and Supergirl barely escapes before it blows up. And Lena was free and she was not as bad as we thought out to be. Snapper Carr was funny in this episode as usual and Kara and James are friends again. I am just glad The Guardian storyline is coming to an end that is my only nitpick of this 2nd season so far. The end of the episode with Kara and Mon-El was great. Kara showing her feelings for Mon-El and such. But as they where about to kiss we get Mr. Mxyzptlk to crash that moment and we have to wait until next week to see what happens next. The suit work and special effects in this episode amazing and Melissa Benoist , Chyler Leigh , Chris Wood and the rest of the cast amazing once again and that cliffhanger so good!!! Overall I give Supergirl Season 2 Episode 12 Luthors a 9.5/10 a really great episode and can’t wait for next weeks episode titled “Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk”
