An Ok premiere. Rather anti climatic how they chose to have Kara tell Lena she is Supergirl. The writers did a poor job building up to this reveal. Why now, why does Kara now want Lena to know after so many years of lying to her , what is the catalyst. Such a big moment deserved better, doesnt feel like honest storytelling to me.
Anyway, I for one enjoyed seeing Lena being angry and salty because of the betrayal. You don;t say someone is your best friend then lie to them for years while everyone in your circle knows. Too bad the scenes of Lena striking Kara turned out not to be real and were just simulations, still satisfying nevertheless, can they show more. So lena is keeping it a secret that she knew already, hope there is more misery for Supergirl.
And can the writers stop with the queerbaiting and romantic coding of Kara/Lena this season. What have they been taking over the summer. They have no intention of going there, so this is just a waste of valuable screentime and an insult to viewers. And no more straddling the fence with Lena, let her become an antagonist/villain and stop postponing the inevitable. Its time they deliver on that this season.
Anyway, Brainiac and Dreamer had some good moments together, they are a cute couple. Hope they get more screentime. It was nice to see Martian manhunter in action. And it will never stop being funny seeing a big Green Martian man shapeshifting into a white little girl.
Yeah, the same so called BFF who lied and betrayed to her for years, Kara started it first.
