Supergirl Season 2, Episode 2 Synopsis: "The Last Children Of Krypton"

I'd be more nervous about the conspicuous lack of James Olsen in this episode if it weren't for his new CatCo job and the fact that the Supergirl showrunners just announced a new direction for the character this season. The British actor has endured criticism for his more somber and tortured depiction of Superman, the level of violence and destruction his Superman is responsible for - even for being a British actor playing the role. The departure of Superman.

Since Hoechlin was cast to play the Man of Steel, the chance to re-create the iconic moment in its entirety was too good to pass up. How-to-the-ever, he's overstayed his welcome.

So, here's my theory (which has been swirling in my mind since we learned Jeremiah is alive): Jeremiah will become Cyborg Superman. Cat has not only delivered some of the best one-liners on the show, but has also been a great source of strength for Kara. And while her Metallos are defeated by the end of the episode, The Doctor is still out there to take down the Super-cousins (and Alex) another day. When Lena Luthor instead shoots and presumably kills Corben, that seems to be that. What else might Cat Grant look to master? She was over-the-top at times, but exactly the kind of superhero we needed.

Growing up protected and raised by her adopted family, the Danvers, but in the shadow of her foster sister, she learned to hide the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin, trying so hard to fit in that she doesn't stand out at all. Snapper is okay so far, but I'll reserve my true judgment for later episodes. Alex and the people from Project Cadmus fight, and Supergirl arrives to save Alex.

It's still early days for Miss Martian, but if Supergirl can capture what made the hero so popular on Young Justice in the first place, M'gann could very well be the breakout character of the season. "That was the Superman Greg [Berlanti] and I grew up on".

I still have my concerns about the Cadmus storyline, though. Her angels and demons metaphor rings of Lex Luthor's rant in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Metallo, too, was well done.

That's just one of the many mysteries that still abound in Supergirl.

Superman and Supergirl go back to fight Metallo, but it was a setup. Finally, at the end we discover that it is James who inherited the post of Cat, but, above all, the mysterious Kryptonian seen starring Chris Wood wake up and take directly to Kara ... It's always about her.

Cat's departure comes on top of Kara losing her new (favorite?) crime-fighting partner to his own city. He's no longer the quirky IT guy who shows up to make a joke and hack something. And I need him and Alex to banter more often. I'm not sure that I buy Brenda Strong as a villain just yet.

That same can be said for Clark and J'onn's arguments over Kryptonite.

Back at Kara's house, Clark reveals that he wants to go back to Metropolis. Yikes! Maybe they should have kept that kryptonite around a little bit longer! Also, I think Superman is a bit selfish in his concern.

For the other half of the fandom that doesn't hate Cavill and Snyder for changing things up, this new Superman has been intriguing. Supergirl develops a plan. Tonight's episode, directed by series veteran Glen Winter, picked up right where last week's "Adventures of Supergirl" debut left off. There's a lot of innate hostility that Mon-El and Kara have for each other simply due to their backgrounds. Alex meeting and, I assume, falling in love with Maggie Sawyer?

In the United Kingdom, season two of Supergirl will be shown on Monday, October 24 at 8pm on Sky 1 and NOW TV.
