Hosts discuss Supergirl for the episode “For Good.”
AFTERBUZZ TV — Supergirl edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of CBS’s Supergirl. In this episode hosts Stephanie Wenger, Lacretia Lyon, and Ashley Brinkman discuss episode 11!

Supergirl is an upcoming American television series developed by writer/producers Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler, Sarah Shechter, and Andrew Kreisberg, set to air on CBS. It is based on the DC Comics character Supergirl (Kara Zor-El), created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino, and stars Melissa Benoistas the title character. Supergirl is a costumed superhero who is the biological cousin to Superman and one of the last surviving Kryptonians.

Kara Zor-El (Benoist) was sent to Earth from the doomed planet Krypton as a 13-year-old by her parents Zor-El (Robert Gant) and Alura Zor-El (Laura Benanti). Alura gave her instructions to protect her infant cousin Kal-El, and informed her that she, like her cousin, would have enormous powers under Earth’s yellow sun.

En route to Earth, Kara’s spacecraft was diverted by a shock wave from Krypton’s explosion and forced into the Phantom Zone, where it stayed for 24 years. During this period, time stopped for Kara so, when the spacecraft eventually escaped the Phantom Zone, she still appeared to be a 13-year-old girl. By the time the spacecraft crash landed on Earth, Kal-El had grown up and become Superman. After helping her out of the craft, Superman took Kara to be adopted by his friends, the Danvers family. The main series begins more than a decade later when the now 24-year-old Kara is learning to embrace her powers after previously hiding them.

Kara hid her powers for more than a decade, believing that Earth didn’t need another hero. However, she has to reveal her powers to thwart an unexpected disaster, setting her on her own journey of heroism as National City’s protector.[2] Kara discovers that hundreds of the criminals her mother prosecuted as a judge on Krypton are hiding on Earth, including her mother’s twin sister Astra (also played by Benanti) and Astra’s husband Non (Chris Vance), who seek to rule the world. After briefly becoming suspicious of the true agenda of her boss, Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), she and her adoptive sister, Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh), secretly discover that Henshaw is actually a benevolent alien refugee, J’onn J’onzz, who has resided on Earth for over fifty years after escaping a holocaust on his homeworld of Mars. J’onn infiltrated the DEO to reform the organization as well as to watch over both Alex and Kara in addition to guiding the latter in the use of her powers due to his experience with his own abilities. Kara is also being targeted by Earth’s criminals as the result of her being related to Superman, and later on encounters an emerging community of metahumans and individuals from parallel universes. She is aided by a few close friends and family who guard her secrets–most notably her cousin’s longtime friend, James Olsen(Mehcad Brooks)–which also serves as a major plot in high tech mogul Maxwell Lord’s (Peter Facinelli) scheme to expose Kara’s identity.

    Isn’t it convenient that Kara can magically know who the second world killer is from a dream!! Despite not ever meeting her but couldn’t know the third.

    In the real world Edge would never go to jail because of the confession it was forced.

    Iam really over mon el constantly reminding Kara how hard this is for her “I know your dumbed Iam taken” like he is always bringing it up that’s is sooo hard to not have him at this point it’s on purpose

    Prediction: the extended promo had a line from Purity about 'having a hole in your heart'; I wonder if she is talking to SG or Mon-El?

  • Karen Petersen 30 / 01 / 2018 Reply

    At the end when Kara mentioned how Lena helped her with Mon-El, Lena mentioned she saw Mon-El and Kara said she knew he's back and it's a long story… do you think they'll continue that discussion next episode or reference it as something they discussed off camera?

James Olson and Lena 4 life Kara-Mel is dead and lets be honest Mon El traded up from Kara because his wife is 20 out of 10. Four world killers on the screen and Kara single outs the black women sad lol JK

    On your question if Lena will remember Kara flying her to the DEO or figure out that Kara is SG; I was wondering if Lena would realize that Kara is Supergirl by her lightning quick reflexes catching that object that Morgan Edge threw at Lena in Catco or that Kara seems to be more emboldened like SG in her posture since returning from her cold??

  • Karen Petersen 30 / 01 / 2018 Reply

    Loved the speech Lillian gave Lena about her scientific savvy and it gives a foretaste perhaps of what saves Mon-El in the future and perhaps what is to come for heroic pursuit with SG in this season or next??

  • Kenisha L 31 / 01 / 2018 Reply

    But who really poisoned Lena?? Edge said lead poisoning in that forced confession, but Alex said it was cyanide. I don’t think this is over.
