TV Review: Supergirl S1E13 For the Girl Who Has Everything
A parasitic alien attaches itself to Kara and traps her in a world where Krypton was never destroyed, leaving Alex, Hank and the DEO to fend off a Kryptonian attack without her.
CBS‘ Supergirl takes tonight’s story from a classic story from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic, Superman Annual #11 from 1985.
Supergirl is trapped in her mind by a plant sent to take her out of action. She believes she’s living on Krypton with her family, when in reality is she was dying.
This leads to DEO and her friends to scramble to save her. The story is solid in that it really focuses on everyone else and really nails down the fact this is her new family. It’s rather touching.
But, it’s all part of a bigger plot by the Kryptonians on Earth to attack, and I’m not quite sure what their actual goal was. They just kind of attacked.
The episode did result in the death of a pretty high profile character, something I wasn’t expecting.
The episode is a great bounce back from last week’s disappointing adaptation of the classic character Bizarro. It shows they can do it right, which only emphasized how bad last week was.
The bad of the episode is that the fight at the end felt a little forced, and could have been part of a second episode, but it was a good one overall, that shows how good the series can be.
Overall rating: 8.6
