What is up guys!
So this is gonna be my review for Supergirl season 3 episode 12 titled ‘for good’.
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much because Supergirl does this thing every season where they have an episode or two that just goes off track, completely off-track from the season’s main arc and loses any momentum of the story of the season so far. They do this so they can just focus on the B characters, like James or Lena. This is one of those episodes.
In my opinion, these episodes are usually really bad – or ranging from really bad to okay. So it was safe to say that I wasn’t expecting much from this episode and the synopsis and the trailer didn’t really look that exciting either! Ultimately, I wasn’t disappointed by this episode mainly because I wasn’t expecting much from it but it was still probably the worst episode of the season.
First of all, Morgan Edge is the villain of this episode and basically, I’m starting to really dislike him. It’s not that I dislike him as such. I just dislike the episodes he’s in because they just don’t work at all. The focus on Lena and her rivalry with Morgan Edge is just so boring and uninteresting. Who really cares? The way the show portrays Morgan Edge as a villain is just plain annoying!
The Legion of Superheroes storyline in this episode completely derails that there is a subplot with Reign and/or Sam which I will talk about in a little bit but other than that there’s really it doesn’t doesn’t perpetuate any of the any of the momentum that was built up in episode 9 10 and 11 and like I said the Legion of super-heroes – I mean Brainiac 5 was not in this episode at all and unless I missed it, there absence wasn’t even explained, which is just really weird. If they don’t show characters and have no explanation for why they are not around, it’s gonna be a minus on the episode. Mainly because it doesn’t make any sense! Especially characters that I like seeing such as Saturn girl.
So yes, this episode has just completely derailed the momentum of the season which really sucks.
There is a lot more that could be said about this episode, both positive and negative. But I’m a bit too grumpy to write about them at the moment! I’m looking forward to getting back to the main plot next week!
