After “Supergirl” dropped the bomb that Jeremiah Danvers (Dean Cain) was a traitor in league with Cadmus, we’ve been pretty suspicious of his true motives. This new, evil cyborg just didn’t mesh with the loving and wise father we’d met from Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Alex’s (Chyler Leigh) childhood.
Luckily, our suspicions were right — Jeremiah was only involved Cadmus to try to save alien lives, and the lives of his daughters. Phew!
That didn’t stop Lillian (Brenda Strong) from launching a ship full of alien refugees into deep space in an effort to eradicate all the aliens on earth. To make matters worse, Alex almost got “deported” along with them. In her mission to find the truth about her father at all costs, Alex breached about a thousand protocols in order to find Lillian’s operation and bring her father in safely.
We can’t decide if Maggie (Floriana Lima) was just being an awesome, supportive girlfriend by helping Alex find her dad, or if she was enabling someone on a really dark path — but that kind of conflict is what we LIVE for on shows like this. As long as Alex and Maggie continue to have these kind of complex stories, we’re happy.
Even though Earth’s resident aliens, including Kara and Mon-El (Chris Wood), are finally safe again, it doesn’t seem like they’ll stay that way for long.
Kevin Sorbo and Teri Hatcher’s new characters have finally been revealed, and we’re kind of freaking out about it.
All hail the King and Queen of Daxam and their son — Mon-El?!
Yeah, we kind of called that one way back when, but it’s no less shocking to see him referred to with his princely title. Plus, while we’d love to believe that his parents have been scouring the universe for him out of love, nothing about these two Daxamites seems sweet or cuddly. They seem fierce and dangerous.
Time will tell if Dad and Mom-El (see what we did there?) are a threat — but until they prove they’re not, we’re cautiously putting them in the “enemies” column…
“Supergirl” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
