When the President arrives to sign an order giving amnesty to aliens. At the DEO, the man who arrived in the craft, awakens and has powers like Supergirl and leaves. Kara begins her first day as a reporter just as Jimmy begins his as Cat's replacement. Snapper Carr doesn't show Jimmy respect and gives Kara a lame assignment.

Did You Know?


In the Wonder Woman TV series Lynda Carter started out as Steve Trevor's secretary in the 1940s before graduating to his fellow agent in the 1970s. In Supergirl she plays the president of the United States. See more »


In her speech, the president describes Ellis Island as a place where *thousands* of immigrants came to America. In reality, the number was in the *millions*. In a speech designed to praise immigration, she would almost certainly have used the correct, larger number. See more »


Supergirl: It's amazing, an executive order allowing aliens on Earth to come out of the shadows and live as full citizens. She's making history.
J'onn J'onzz: Not in my book, I think she's making a big mistake.
Supergirl: Now, how can you of all people say that?
J'onn J'onzz: Because it's been my hard experience that humans and aliens don't mix.
Supergirl: What about you and me?
J'onn J'onzz: What about us? We can look like them, we blend in, a lot of aliens can't. And people in this world don't have much tolerance for others who look different. I say that as an alien...

Season Two Still Proves Strong
24 October 2016 | by scarlettyforestSee all my reviews

In many ways, the third episode of the CW's Supergirl was a definitive answer to the question, "How well would the show hold up without Superman?" And the answer is: really well, actually.

This episode introduced the Daxamite Mon-El, who seems to be a great addition to the cast. Chris Wood's chemistry with Melissa is a welcome presence, and he and the writers did a good job of making you care about the character (something that had been needed following the host of aliens that featured in season one that I really did not care for). Similarly, I'll say once again that Snapper Carr's addition to the show balances out Kara's optimism really well and makes for interesting discourse and food for thought in watching their interactions. The episode also ended on an exciting note with the introduction of a famed character (who I won't spoil in case rumours of her appearance haven't reached you yet).

On the other hand, the episode had some issues, mainly being a 'villain of the week' style character, but people forget that in the Flash and Arrow's early days and still even today, a villain of the week is pretty common place. The only other issue is that I'm not really sure what Lena Luthor, billionaire philanthropist, is doing talking to a member of the press to openly, but its not a biggie.

All up:

+ Mon-El


+ Lynda Carter + Maggie Sawyer

-'Villain of the week'
