‘Supergirl’ Needs More of the Friendship Between James and Winn

James and Winn
Though the pair originally started out as frenemies on Supergirl, Winn and James have grown close, especially over the last two seasons.

Their friendship seems to be the one part of their lives that is “normal,” or whatever anyone with an alien as a friend can call normal. As Winn dealt with the death of his father and arrival of his mother on Season 3 Episode 14, James clearly helped him through it, and it just shows how far their friendship has come, even though we’ve seen so little of it.

How ‘Supergirl’ Can Break Away from Making Kara Danvers Just Another Love Interest

Kara Danvers
After Kara’s revelation during her coma in the Supergirl mid-season premiere that her current life is all because she took on the human identity of Kara Danvers, we need to see stories that reflect that.

This mental block she experienced in the mid-season premiere of Supergirl seems to have cemented that Kara Danvers is just as important as Supergirl, if not more important, and that she needs to appreciate the “human” life she’s been able to lead. But why—after many revelations of how important Kara’s life as Kara Danvers is—is her life outside of being a superhero solely about being a love interest and ignores any other part of her life, especially her career? Let’s see Kara embrace her career more and the writers develop stories utilizing her skills as a reporter, rather than just as an alien.

Should ‘Supergirl’ Seek Superman’s Assistance with the Worldkillers?

Superman
Much of Supergirl has been about establishing Kara Danvers as a hero in her own right, and as a hero the people of National City can count on.

Before even introducing Superman as a recognizable character, we saw Kara fight to prove she didn’t need her cousin to come save the day for her. It’s safe to say Kara’s proven to everyone she’s just as capable, if not more so, than Superman. So would it be a mistake to bring in Superman to be at Kara’s side during the Worldkiller fight?

Did Imra Make the Right Decision with Pestilence on ‘Supergirl’?

Imra
With the third Worldkiller finally active, and the Legion’s mission to come back to Supergirl’s time and stop her before she turns into Blight revealed, Supergirl showed a clash in ideology between Imra (Saturn Girl) and Kara.

As they attempted to unveil the identity of Pestilence on Supergirl Season 3 Episode 16, Imra’s vision of killing the Worldkiller before she left a permanent mark on the world put her at odds with Kara, who just wants to help save those that are stuck within, i.e. Julia.

Can Lena Luthor Ever Become a Hero on ‘Supergirl’?

Lena Luthor
Lena Luthor’s stance on morality has been the heated debate circling her character since her debut on Supergirl.

Supergirl Season 3 has already returned to this, twice, and forced Lena to entertain the idea of killing someone to protect herself (and others) and consider what she’d be willing to do to keep those around her safe. As we saw on Season 3 Episode 12, Lena ultimately decided to save Edge from her mother, rather than kill him herself or let her mother finish him off, but can Lena ever truly stay good?
