AFTERBUZZ TV — Supergirl edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of CBS’s Supergirl. In this episode hosts Stephanie Wenger and Lacretia Lyon discuss episode 14!

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.

    This episode had an easter egg from the comics in the graveyard scene. One of the tombstones said Pete Lang, a reference to Pete Ross who married Lana Lang.

    Season 4 wish list, Steel, Wondergirl, and Lobo. He would be a great villain turned anti hero antagonist.

    Thanks guys for the review. I freaking love the ep. Winn was amazing, all guys got some time and stories, space dads' story wasa hearbreaking, Kara was a KICKASS and Mon-El finally showed some moves. Seriously cool ep. Good to have this show back. #KaramelAllTheWay

    It was a good ep over all and I hope we see more of Winn's mom. There were still things that bugged me. Lena hasn't been to the DEO yet but Winn's mom has? and I just can't with the whole James and Lena thing, but after he spent all of season 2 trashing her to Kara

    Silence of the Lambs nod- Brooke Smith, who played the villain, was in Silence of the Lambs. Mama Shott called her Buffalo Bill when she was captured, Buffalo Bill was the villain of Silence of the Lambs…apart from Hannibal Lecter…and that's the most i can dissect one episode. SO GLAD IT"S BACK!!!!

    IMra not IRma

    Am I the only one not bothered by them saying Imra's name wrong? It's not Erma!

  • J'acob Albers 19 / 04 / 2018 Reply

    The whole being comfortable in your own skin thing makes no sense in the episodes story and for the martians in this show: J'ohn (I know I spelled that wrong) is still wearing the Henshaw form because he and others are comfortable with that form and his father takes a familiar form to match him. If they wanted to not no look like someone else, they would be in their true martian forms.
