Alright ladies and gentleman we had another great episode brought to us tonight and this one had some good stuff happen in it! So let’s get to this review!
So in this episode we had the reveal of who is controlling Leviathan organization. And I have to admit, I’m kind of disappointed in learning this early whose in charge of the organization. If it would’ve been in like a January or February episode I would’ve felt okay with that but instead we get the results and it’s just another alien race. They could’ve done so much more with Leviathan like making it another earth’s Talia Al’Ghul as the leader, or another Earth’s Nyssa or anything like that. It could’ve been a human villain standing in the way of Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) way.
Instead they used an alien race that was supposedly close to Krypton and got destroyed with Krypton. But the ruler of the alien race is Rama Khan (Mitch Pileggi).
Now in the comics Rama Khan was of a 3,000 year old league of ancient leader who was of a surrounding part of Atlantis. However in the series they changed his origin completely by making him a new type of alien species who crash landed on Earth millennia’s before Superman and Supergirl. Which is just ridiculous in my opinion. Making him someone who never had the ability to control earth to his will and make that his villainous power is just eh. I mean it seems okay cause he does seem like he could hold his own against Supergirl but I just feel like they could’ve done way more with the organization and with the villain.
Although I did laugh at Brainy’s (Jesse Rath) nickname to Rama Khan, calling him an Earthbender like he was quoting from a well known animation series Last Airbender. I wonder if the character even knows of that series? It’s hard to say but it was a good giggle moment and nod to a phenomenal animation series.
Brainy was altered a little bit too after that explosion; let’s just hope that this alteration doesn’t have consequences later down the road. I have a feeling that it might but we shall see when that time comes.
And Kelly (Azie Tesfai) and Alex (Chyler Leigh) almost had their relationship end this episode which would’ve been a huge mistake. If they would’ve done that, it would’ve angered so many fans of the character Alex. Thank God they didn’t break up but still it was a close call.
And I had a feeling that Lena (Katie McGrath) was going to release a big scheme by revealing how she’s been using Supergirl this whole season so far. Which honestly it’s all nice to reveal why but at the same I felt like the writers did what they were trying not to do by making Lena turn into the villain in this episode. I mean she laid out everything so that no one will ever be able to trust her again. Maybe I just read it a little bit too much but I also feel like I didn’t.
Next Episode: Supergirl (S05E08) “The Wrath of Rama Khan” airs Sunday December 1, 2019 at 9/8c on The CW
