JASMINE's THOUGHTS on Supergirl Season 2
About the Show
Supergirl is an action-adventure drama based on the DC 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 tehcnician Winn Schott and famous photographer 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 agency 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.

Ok... This second season was amazing! So much more has developed since Season 1! Season 1 set up the world and its characters and all the ups and downs that Kara dealt with as she figured out who Supergirl is while protecting National City, but now, this Season 2 they have gone beyond the stars! Yup! Melissa Benoist does an amazing job at bringing this comic book hero to life! I love how much all these characters have evolved after all that has happened since Season 1. Anyways, I really loved Superman's introduction into the series! It was great! It was about time that these cousins got together, even helped each other out.
So, in Season 1, Supergirl/Kara dealt mostly with villains of earth while dealing with her confusion of who she is and wants to be. Moreover, this Season 2 has expanded this world to beyond the stars. Familiar characters, heroes and villains, are revealed into the series...even those from beyond the stars. I loved the development of the romances with a few of these characters. A lot of these relationships incorporated many real life relationship issues people deal with all the time. Not only that, the show tackled very real and hard issues in the world... They just added the science fiction and fantasy elements to it.
The series is just getting better and better. Plus, it is pretty cool to see some crossovers with other DC shows! The show has definitely progressed since Season 1. All the plots and subplots flow and are intertwined with each other bringing the story together... Well, that's what I think. I'm no expert...haha!!! And, that finale was action-packed and emotional. Whoa! So, yeah, I am squee-ing like a fangirl... Well, I am! 😊 Other than that, the series has continued to entertain me and has brought a cool comic book superhero to life. And, of course, I love the casting! I am so looking forward to Season 3. So, for now, take a look at the Season 3 Comic-Con 2017 trailer!
Missed San Diego Comic Con 2017!?! We did... totally bummed about that, but it happens. Anyways, check out the Supergirl panel coverage by Flicks and the City!
