Andreas wrote in with some thoughts about the Supergirl season four finale titled “The Quest for Peace”!
Hi, Super Ladies!I just watched the finale and wanted to give some quick opinions.Let’s start with the good stuff:– Almost all threads and themes that were planted throughout the season came to a climax in this episode.– The opening shot was great, Lex gave an awesome Iron Man impression.– Miss Tessmacher! Great scenes with Lex.– Lena fighting Miss Tessmacher.– The Luthor family reunion with lots of poison (literally and verbally).– Lex is killed by Lena and not Supergirl.– Lex speeches hating on Kryptonians.– Lex’s plan to blow up Argo and finally kill Superman.– Everything with The Monitor (I love Crisis on Infinite Earths)The bad stuff:– The death of Red Daughter. I think don’t think anyone expected her to live through the finale, but come on. That was cheap. Her dissolving into mist like Ariel in the original Little Mermaid fairy tale. Was this the Kryptonian version of Highlanders Quickening? At least, let her fight Lex. One punch was all I asked for. Will Kara now have some of her memories? Or her powers?– Kara’s click bait article. Okay, show writers. I get what you are going for, but this was rushed, One blog entry was enough to change the public opinion in seconds? Guess we should try and write some articles about climate change or racism. And now, the anti-alien hate is also contained? People on Kara’s Earth do change their minds quickly.– Superpowers. Jimmy got superpowers to fight Lockwood, who also got superpowers, and now, neither of them have superpowers.– The relationships of Dreamer and Alex were rushed. It was even directly addressed in the episode how everything happened so quickly.– Lex quoting Hitler. We know he is evil. He casually killed a guy in the opening.The ugly stuff:– The way Lena learns about Kara’s secret identity. This is a promising storyline. I am really looking forward to seeing this play out. Gladly, Lex dies slowly enough to tell his sister everything. He even made a presentation. Poor Lena. I sense a bad girl Lena story coming our way.Keep up the super work you are doing!– Andreas
