Maggie Sawyer broke the rules of fight club and talked about fight club, but she isn’t facing the consequences of those actions: Kara is.
Supergirl Season 2 Episode 4 introduces Roulette and her alien fight club, where all competitors fight to the death. How is she going to escape from this one? We know Kara’s no killer, but will she go too far?
The official synopsis from The CW is, “While investigating the murder of an unregistered alien, Kara and Alex find an alien fight club run by Roulette; Hank tries to get to know M’Gann better; Supergirl begins to train Mon-El.”
So while Supergirl is fighting for her life, J’onn is cozying up to his new lady friend, Miss Martian, as is Alex with NCPD detective Maggie Sawyer. Rumor has it those two ladies will be together soon enough, at least we hope so.
Mon-El is much like Kara; he’s also stranded on an alien planet, all of his people are dead, and all he wants to do is go home. While her cousin couldn’t understand that wish as he’s been on Earth his entire life, Mon-El understands this side of Kara, which will probably lead to some sort of romantic involvement, despite their peoples’ past aggressions and prejudices.
Will that last? Probably not. Eventually Kara will be with James, but for now, why not? This could be an important step for Kara to take. She could finally ease a bit of that heartache that she’s felt since her mother sent her away from Krypton.
Many suspect, if there is a romantic involvement, it’ll end tragically. That wouldn’t be surprising given her past. This training could be the key to stopping Cadmus, though. Clark and Kara couldn’t stop them alone, but maybe with Mon-El they can.
Supergirl continues Monday at 8/7c on The CW.
