Supergirl Round Table: Will Sam Survive?

We're back!

The Legion of Superheroes woke up a new member on Supergirl Season 3 Episode 10, and Brainiac-5 did not disappoint. He helped Kara wake up from her coma and get back to her old self.

Below, TV Fanatics Christine Orlando, Jay Ruymann, Kathleen Wiedel, and Andy Behbakht discuss Brainy and the Legion, Sam's future, and Coville's switching sides.

Join us!

What are your thoughts on Brainiac-5 and the Legion of Superheroes as a whole?

Christine: Brainiac-5 was fun. He struck the right balance between incredibly smart and helpful, and his mind meld powers were intriguing.

I would have expected him to be more arrogant, but he wasn’t that way at all. I’m hoping he sticks around for a while. As for the rest of the Legion of Superheroes, they really didn’t make much of an impression, at least not yet.

Jay: I was kind of underwhelmed. The

Supergirl Season 3 Episode 10 Review: Legion of Superheroes

Kara's alive!

What, you mean you're not completely shocked to learn that she survived on Supergirl Season 3 Episode 10 after spending a few days in a coma? 

While we may not have needed Mon-El's knowledge from the future to know that she would eventually wake up, it was still enjoyable watching the process. 

We have a new character, and he's one who definitely needs to stick around for awhile. Move over Mon-El; Kara may have a new potential love interest. 

It's way too soon to go there. Kara's still mending a broken heart, and Mon-El's presence is not helping to speed up the process, but she and Braniac-5 did seem to have an instant connection. 

At the very least, a solid friendship can be built on this foundation. 

Braniac-5 is funny, charming, smart (obviously), and a very skilled multitasker. He's the total package. 

Braniac-5: Actually, let's keep talking. It'll help

Supergirl season 3 episode 10 review: Legion Of Superheroes

The Legion of Superheroes is an action-packed hour of Supergirl that leaves us wanting more. Spoilers...

3.10 Legion Of Superheroes

At the end of the midseason finale, Supergirl was defeated by Reign in a spectacular and violent fashion. Reign did serious damage, both to Supergirl herself, who spends most of this episode in a coma, and to the city, which seems panicked and demoralised after Supergirl’s defeat and absence.

If you were hoping to meet the whole Legion tonight, you were disappointed—the rest of the crew is still in stasis in their ship. Since we had already met Mon-El and his wife, Imra Adeen, that means we really only met one new character, making this episode title a bit of an oversell. It’s still great
