Fair warning, if you are a Mon-El fan, skip this entire review because you probably don’t want to read what I have to say below.
It took me a month to finally watch this show, not because I didn’t have time, but because I just didn’t want to watch it. I should have trusted my instinct and just deleted this episode because I wasn’t watching the Supergirl show, I was watching the Mon-El show, yaaaaaaaaaay. It sickens me how this once feminist and amazing show about this female superhero who can take care of herself and who doesn’t need a man to save and protect her has been reduced to a show about Mon-El and his history about Daxam and how his parents want to take him back to their planet. WHO THE FUCK CARES?
I signed up to watch Supergirl be a badass and fight aliens, not to watch some lame-ass dude bro take over the show, mistreat Supergirl and show her no respect, thus completely ruining my enjoyment of the show and the original characters. So thanks a lot, Supergirl writers, for turning one of my favorite shows into a shit show. Thanks a fucking lot. I won’t watch the rest of the episodes for this season because I barely watched this one and just stopped long enough to watch the Maggie/Alex scenes (the one saving grace about the show) so I don’t need to subject myself to being angered and pissed off because of this one character and how the dynamic of the show has been completely ruined.
I will come back next season if Mon-El dies at the end of the season, but if they announce the actor is going to be a regular, then, yes, I am going to begrudgingly part ways with this show.
