So this was the episode for confrontations! J'onn/Malefic; Alex/Kelly; and Lena/Kara. I think all the actors did well in those scenes.
I'm not so much into Alex/Kelly, but I'm glad their relationship is getting some focus. The thing is, while I'm glad Kelly has a continuing arc (her trauma/PTSD), it's weird that Alex doesn't so far this season.
I've had this question also for a while; and I think she does? It's just that I can't point to a specific scene that makes this clear.
I enjoyed J'onn's subplot; but yes, so many holes.
If they've forgiven each other now, what are they going to do with Malefic for the rest of the season?
Yes; he's off the show.
I feel bad for both Lena and Kara; I get their feelings, but I cannot take Lena seriously when she says she's 'not a villain' - after she's been supervillain-ing this whole season.
Oh, they'll walk it back. Will it be credible? Not to me.
I guess we'll get more into Leviathan in the back half? Still not sure what to think of them.
Brainy was good here too. I know he got Nia, but he needs something to do outside of comedic relief and tech support.
