Mind Over Matter
16 October 2017 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

It happens every now and then, but this episode felt the most CW-ish out of any Supergirl episode in quite some time. Everything from the very clichéd mother-daughter conflict with the new character of Samantha, to the unbelievably cheesy songs to begin and end the episode. If there was ever an episode I would NOT show to someone starting out this show, it may be this one.

That's not to say it's the worst episode, season 1 had probably 10 worse than this one, but I don't feel like it was a good follow up to last week's solid debut. CW has a tendency to create superficial conflicts or as I like to call forced conflicts just to keep the series going. And that's certainly the nature of serialized television. With that said, I haven't been impressed with the direction they are taking Kara and the unnecessary inner conflicts she is having.

I also don't approve of the inevitable break-up of Alex and Maggie. They continue to have silly arguments over nothing, and it's inevitably going to lead to a break-up. I understand Floriana Lima is only supposed to appear a few times this year, but if they have them break-up for some silly reason, then I will be extremely disappointed.

Speaking of romance, James and Lena almost seemed destined to pursue romantic opportunities with each other as the professional tensions between them seem to rise. It seems entirely cliché, but that's the type of thing CW does, so I expect it to happen.

The villain this week was the one and only, Psi, a mind controlling freak who implements your worst fear in your mind upon attack. Sound a whole lot like another famous DC villain? Well it should. Ahem, Scarecrow. She served a purpose and did it somewhat effectively, but she will ultimately fall in the same list as the rest of Arrowverse's forgettable villains. Overall, I wasn't a huge fan of this week's episode as it felt like a prototypical CW episode that didn't progress the plot in any interesting way at all.

5.7/10
