MY THOUGHTS: Supergirl Season 1 Episode 4 - "How Does She Do It?"


About the Show
Supergirl is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El, Superman's (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities, and be the hero she was always meant to be.

Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents' help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. 

Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photgrapher James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara's days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret ageny where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.

Episode 4 - How Does She Do It?

My Thoughts

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

What a mind bend! Someone is watching Supergirl! The question is... "who?" Hmmm... With the influx of villains for Supergirl to tackle, we have learned that these villains could either be alien and/or human. But, boy, does Kara have a lot on her "plate"...haha! Although Kara has established herself as to being Supergirl, she feel that she has to take on "everything." However, the people in her life tell her otherwise. Yup, Kara is still learning as she "comes" into her own as a superhero and as Kara Danvers...Cat's assistant.

As more bomb threats appear, Supergirl finds herself "spread out too thin." She learns that she can't do everything or save everyone. In the end, Kara learns that Supergirl needs help from time to time. However, Supergirl has to determine which danger to tackle first and hand off to those who can help, such as the DEO.

On the other side, Kara's feelings for James keeps growing...It's also apparent that James does have some feelings developing for Kara as well. But, Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan Tatum) is still in town trying to win James back. With all the dangers appearing, will James and Lucy's romance be rekindled!?! Well, how cliché would that be...haha! But, it worked, especially when it comes to matters of the heart.

Supergirl figures out who is behind these bombings...another villain, maybe!?! Hmmm...why?

The casting for this show is great! Love how Calista Flockhart and Peter Facinelli portrays their characters...on top of the rest of the cast. The casting for these characters is perfect! The show is compelling, yet funny; dramatic, yet light-hearted. It is definitely a family show that is worth watching.

'Til the next episode!

Well, for now, let's get a sneak peek at Episode 6 - "Red Faced"

Synopsis:
There's something wicked happening in Onyx City...

Souls are being recruited by the devil himself to prepare for an all-out war against Heaven, and Reese Lespoir finds herself at the heart of it. She's awoken from a coma by a kiss from a mysterious stranger who's more prickly than prince. She learns she now has the power to see the future, which apparently, requires careful training. Enter Prickly Prince, who seems to find more enjoyment being a witty drunk than honing her craft.

When a girl is taken by Onyx City's most notorious criminal, who may or may not be a demon, Reese is thrust into the forefront of the impending war well before she's ready. Her new friend, Andie Shepherd, is intent on getting her sister back from the demonic criminal at all costs, and if Reese doesn't help her, Andie may have to rely on the assistance of a vigilante known only as Black Wing, dangerous as he is tall, dark and handsome. And that's only if he's in a particularly generous mood. Just because he has wings doesn't always mean he's an angel, after all.

**About the Author**
81cfV34USzL._UX250_
I am an acquired taste. I'm a typical blonde Orange County suburbanite who says 'like' more than necessary, laughs loud and probably obnoxiously, and loves to dance in the rain. I'm a 25 year old college graduate with more than a few tricks up my sleeve, and I also happen to be a pretty big Ducks fan. Oh, and I'm a writer. Like, for real. I recently signed with Anchor Group Publishing, which will see two of my series being published this year. I've self-published over 15 books, with more on the way, so I'm familiar with both a hybrid-traditional publishing method as well as self-publishing. I don't speak in third person (normally) nor do I wear glasses (except when I'm feeling particularly mischievous). I'm lucky to have found my soul mate at the ripe old age of 22, even though he frustrates me on purpose to get a reaction out of me. We live near Disneyland, have two rambunctious female puppies, and have a beautiful baby girl. He has two amazing boys, and has gotten me hooked on Smallville, watching soccer (okay, okay FOOTBALL - FC Barcelona, baby!), and Cancun Juice.
