My forensic files thoughts:During Episode 2: I screamed at my TV when Lena said “that’s fruit of the poisonous tree”. Since my job completely revolves around that legal aspect, I was so happy to hear the Supergirl Radio Legal Consultants explain further. I have been to jury trials and I cringed…like super hard…at how the writers depicted court functions.
During Episode 3: I’m once again being picky, but M’gann’s cut on her neck is quite deep for that little amount of bleeding. I’m not a medic, but I’m assuming that the white walking dementors *cough*…sorry, phantoms cut her neck and it miraculously did not hit an artery. So from there, I am assuming that it hit a vein. With the cut being in the neck where blood flows at a high rate while she was being physically active, I was thinking realistically there would be A LOT more blood. If they hit an artery, then it would produce arterial bleeding (blood literally squirting out creating a different blood spatter effect on walls and such). The only way I truly see neck injuries like the one on M’gann is where they are dead on the autopsy table (no blood flow whatsoever) or where the wounds have been sealed very quickly after injury and the cut was not very damaging and the person had not gone into shock and was very lucky. Those things vary, but they are my observations.During Episode 4: I started laughing at the fact that they had to use a crystal to get Kara’s DNA. I collect people’s DNA on a daily basis!!! Look at Kara’s toothbrush, comb, glass she last drank from, her keyboard from her office or laptop (I could keep going). I get it’s a smaller sample and is less likely to produce a full sample, but jeez. They do this in CSI shows all the time where they solve crimes in twenty minutes so the writers need to get on that bandwagon or, at least, write creatively.– Redlocks 27
