After the revelation that President Olivia Marsdin is an alien swept the country, Supergirl found herself as a beacon of hope for the world to unite and accept the differences among the citizens. Doesn’t look like it worked though.
On Supergirl Season 4 Episode 2, President Marsdin resigned as Supergirl paid her a visit at the White House. (Where was Cat Grant? You’re telling me that Cat Grant, the Press Secretary and Supergirl’s first supporter, wouldn’t have been present at a meeting between these two ladies? The meeting should have happened in National City if the writers couldn’t have even brought Calista back for a five second scene.) Meanwhile, Mercy Graves strikes again, but this time she goes after a much closer target.
Mercy and Otis Graves arrive in National City, causing a spike in hate crimes against aliens. Elsewhere, Kara is riding high (literally) after the events of Supergirl Season 3, and Superman being off-world is just letting her get even more time to shine.
On Supergirl Season 4 Episode 1, “American Alien,” the drama over Kara Danvers vs. Kara Zor-El seems to be gone as she’s embraced both sides of her identity and is finding a nice stride as a lead reporter for CatCo and the only Kryptonian hero on Earth. Is it too good to be true? Meanwhile, a new reporter, referred by Cat Grant, is introduced as Kara’s mentee, and Alex continues leading the DEO.
When Supergirl Season 4 Episode 1 premieres, Kara is high on life. She’s embracing her identities as Supergirl and Kara Danvers, and, for once, Kara’s life is exactly how she wants it.
Here at The TV Type, we had the opportunity to watch an early screening of the Supergirl premiere episode. One thing I’ve had to tell myself, too many times to count, going into Supergirl Season 4 is to give the show a fresh start. This is the first season without the input of Andrew Kreisberg who, let’s face it, dragged the female hero down with his misogynistic and predatory behavior.
Holy motherforking shirtballs! Chidi and Eleanor become each other’s confidants and support systems, just as they were. Jason and Tahani fall back into their usual habits. Trevor is still the worst. And Michael and Janet are the dynamic duo we’ve all missed so dearly.
On The Good Place Season 3 Episodes 1 and 2, “Everything Is Bonzer!” and “The Brainy Bunch” respectively, the fearsome foursome get thrown back together, with a little nudge from Michael and Janet. The end goal comes into full focus: they need each other. And it seems like Michael has begun to need them too. As Michael tries to save the humans, Trevor and the Bad Place does everything in their power to withstand them and, in the middle of the two of them, the Judge resides, trying to keep everyone in line, as well as the universe. The battle between good and evil was never so hilarious.
The Bold Type Season 2 finale recently premiered and I have to say, it was pretty underwhelming.
After a rocky season of The Bold Type filled with inconsistencies and rushed storylines, fans were counting on the season finale to bring everything together and make sense of the chaos. Unfortunately, it not only failed to tie up the rest of the season, it was overall lackluster and left the viewers saying, “That’s it?” There are plenty examples throughout the entirety of the season where things just didn’t quite add up, but perhaps most infuriating were the inconsistencies and conflicting narratives involving the show’s main couple: Kat and Adena.
