Supergirl(S04E17) “All About Eve”

Alright guys and gals, we had another great episode brought to us tonight and it was a really good episode! The episode brought a comic arc into the light, we have a lot to talk about so lets dive into this review!

So in this episode, in a way it was not just all about Eve (Andrea Brooks) like how the title of the episode claims to be. But it was all about Lex’s (Jon Cryer) plan to come into the light, but we also got an idea to how Red Daughter (Melissa Benoist) fits into that plan. Because the way how the last episode ended it was still unclear to how she came into the plan but after watching this episode it was brought to clarity how she came into the plan but I feel like there will be more to her part in the plan as well.

In the episode we saw how Eve was subjected to bring Red Daughter into position for the attack but to also keep watch over her to make sure that she does not in a way get side tracked as if they need to worry about her getting side tracked. But we got also a little bit to how Otis (Robert Baker) came back into life but how much of Otis is really mechanical and how much of him is really him? After all we saw that the process was to create another Metallo and that second one got blown to bits so now the question is, was Otis made into the perfect Metallo? I mean I’m sure he has the kryptonite heart but what else will Otis have? I hope they didn’t make him into the perfect version of Metallo cause I really don’t want Otis to be the replacement of the original Metallo.

We also saw this episode have the beginning makings of going into one of the biggest and what I think is a thrilling comic book arc of Superman and Batman. I’m talking about Public Enemies comic arc which was a big story arc between Superman and Batman. In the comic story Superman and Batman were being framed by a common enemy and had to team up to clear their names. I’m not going to spoil much of the comic story because I’m not sure yet in how much of the story is really going into the upcoming episodes. But it is really exciting to know that they are bringing this story arc into Supergirl series especially since they did I think last season an episode titled “World’s Finest” and everyone including me were always wondering if they were going to be getting to Public Enemies story arc and it seems like we are.

So in the first act of the plan, Lex wanted Red Daughter to pretend to be Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and attack the President (Bruce Boxleitner) but it wasn’t just to attack the president, it was also attacking everyone who was there at the white house. After all there was Senator Granberry (Karin Konoval) who was in the race against Ben Lockwood/Agent Liberty (Sam Witwer) for I believe the Senator’s spot. And we all know that Lex is the one who had a hand in getting that win for Lockwood to happen because I’m pretty sure that Granberry was going to be the winner for the race.

But it looks like that things are not looking good for James (Mehcad Brooks) because we saw that he’s going to be going through some major trauma after that incident with him getting shot and almost dying. But at least he has his sister Kelly (Azie Tesfai) to help him through the trauma and hopefully help him over come it but it’s hard to say as of right now. I hope that he is able to over come it because when it came to the attack on the white house it really made James have a freeze moment and flashback kind of feeling.

And it seems like it’s not only Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Lena (Katie McGrath) who don’t believe that Supergirl did the attack but it seems that Col. Haley (April Parker Jones) who don’t believe that Supergirl did the attack. But at least Alex and Lena will team up with Supergirl to find out who is behind the attack and how it came to be even though we the viewers already know who did it.
