Daryl wrote in with some thoughts about the Supergirl season four episode titled “Bunker Hill”!
I’m far less worried about Supergirl’s future with the DEO than I think they intended. Supergirl will still save people and with a sister who’s the director of the agency, she’ll still help her as needed. Does Kara get paid by the DEO? They really love pulling that government employee line out when they feel like it.
Where was Ben Lockwood’s son during this episode? This show just drops family members as they see fit and it’s strange.
Well, President Tron is turning out to be awful. Why doesn’t Supergirl tell him that she doesn’t have a secret identity and is just Supergirl full-time? That’s certainly what they went for last season.
With Nia liking classic movies, too, they are really pushing this whole Kara parallel. I definitely caught the Hook reference and was glad it wasn’t as badly done as last season’s Hook reference. That “bangarang” came out of absolutely nowhere.
How is Kara still so bad at lying? She’s a professional at lying yet she could barely get through the lie she told Nia.
For anyone wondering, it was said in a previous season (I think in the season two episode “Alex”) that the DEO does know that Kara is Supergirl. Colonel Haley and the President are likely to know, too.
I’m a bit surprised that Kara isn’t so open with Nia yet even though Nia is trusting her with her biggest secret. The “Nia is an alien” reveal still somehow managed to feel like a weird retcon. It also raises a million questions that the episode just kind of breezes past. How long has she been on Earth? Was she born here? Where are her parents/family? (We know her family is coming soon, but it’s still a valid question.)
