Listener Email: The Big Bad?


Alex wrote in with some thoughts on the Supergirl season four penultimate episode titled “Red Dawn”!

This episode’s use of other classic television series amazed me.

First, if I am not mistaken, Brainy disables the Martian Manhunter with a Xena Warrior Princess-style nerve pinch.

Next, Red Daughter states, “I am part of the collective”. Does this mean the Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation has assimilated Kaznia?

I hope that Brainy turning evil Brainiac will not mean he becomes the big bad of next season. That could lead to the return of Mon-El and the Legion of Super-Heroes to help fight him. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Mon-El hater. I just want a season of Supergirl being the lone superhero. As I said, the show is at its best when it is about Kara being Supergirl, and not a side character in her own show.

The funniest moment of this episode was watching Sam Witwer imitate Brainy, imitating Ben Lockwood. That made me laugh out loud.
