Courtney sent Supergirl Radio an email to share some thoughts on the Supergirl Season Six episode titled “Prom Night!”
The “Why Kenny Li is alive” explanation seems a bit far fetched. I understand after Crisis things changed, but Alex had her memories returned of what really happened. I mean, would Kenny being alive even be something she would remember? The writers really wrote themselves into a corner with Crisis. What was the actual point of that anyway besides to kill off Oliver? It’s not like anyone from the other Earths have interacted since they’ve been combined. Buuuuut…I guess it doesn’t matter as Supergirl was the only one from another Earth and they cancelled…oops…are ending the show on their own terms this season.
Metropolis is a three-hour drive to Midvale? I was under the assumption they were on opposite coasts. I know Eliza has to fly to National City for Thanksgiving, but that could be a choice for time’s sake. We see Kara and Alex drive to Midvale in J’onn’s car in the Midvale episode. Did Crisis rearrange geographic locations, too?
Out of curiosity, didn’t Winn take the ship back to the future? I have a hard time rewatching Season 5 ie. I haven’t, so maybe I missed something.
So, they buried the ship for a bit? Let’s hope they didn’t need anything in it.
Is Eliza a geologist now?! (Silently shaking my fist over here at Crisis.)
Unpopular opinion: I don’t really care for Brainy and Nia stories. I get that Brainy and Nia are there to get Kara’s DNA (clearly, still can’t just get a hair sample), but for an episode set in Midvale, it was seriously lacking in Danvers Sisters. You would think we’d see more young Kara and Alex interacting, but instead, they’re arguing again about how they all had to sacrifice for Kara. I feel like we’ve already resolved this argument. Unless, like Kenny being alive, the argument is back again. Granted, it’s probably underlying since adult Kara and Alex have something similar in Homecoming, but it should be varied a bit.
Honestly, this episode wasn’t as good as I had hoped. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by such a crummy title. Let’s hope the second part is better. And at least, the actress playing Cat Grant had her mannerisms down to a tee.
