After M’gann was psychically attacked by the White Martians in Supergirl Season 2 Episode 10, her location has been compromised and her people are after the traitor. Since she’s worked her way back into the good graces of Team Supergirl, despite being a White Martian, it’s up to them to protect her. But can J’onn stand up to his greatest enemy to save one of their own?
On Supergirl Season 2 Episode 11, “The Martian Chronicles,” the DEO headquarters is invaded by a White Martian that’s after M’gann, and it could be disguised as any of them.
Does M’gann deserve the team to stand up for her, considering the lies she’s told them? I believe that the only reason Alex and Kara are on her side is because she saved J’onn and he’s on her side. Somehow she convinced him that she’s a good White Martian, and that her label as a traitor to her people is enough to separate her from the travesties that happened at the hands of her people.
J’onn’s family was murdered by her people, and for all we know, she could’ve been linked to that in some way, too. We don’t really know much about her, other than who she is and why she came to Earth. Could J’onn ever get past who she is to become her friend, or even possibly more?
His commitment to being the last Green Martian, and to his people whether alive or not, is strong, and associating with someone that comes from the enemy’s side might be an unforgivable offense in his mind.
Does she deserve to be saved? We can’t know. More effort should’ve been spent on exploring what she did on Mars and how she came to disobey her people. A simple explanation that she saved a child and murdered a few fellow guards isn’t enough. There has to be a bigger event that caused her to turn sides.
Supergirl Season 2 Episode 11 airs Monday, February 7 at 8/7c on The CW!
