Grab your layer of tensions from the real world and your glasses of allegories from out of this world. Supergirl it's back! There is no time for the "previous players"; Let's start directly with what is happening with the main players in season 4.
Alex and Brainy: While Alex seems to be comfortable with her new position as DEO director, Brainy-ness, from Brainy, has her at her breaking point. Who would have guessed that a level 12 intellect would have difficulty operating on Earth in 2018 … apart from, you know, everyone.
Brainy makes an effort to put on a Winn sweater, Alex admits that he has problems with the change, and in the end, they agree that both miss their friends and need to start working together. This should be a couple of weird and fun couples moving forward, particularly if Brainy keeps his personal image inducer in place to save us all the blue skin / white hair combo.
In addition, Alex, who has adopted a fabulous new hairstyle from day to night, is dating again. I still miss Maggie, but if Alex has found a happy place, I'm happy for her.
J'onnHis father's last wish for J'onn to promote peace led him to a support group for foreigners alarmed by the growing hostility that surrounded them. They struggle to find work and cope with the increase in verbal abuse, and many have bought the new L-Corp inducers that allow them to project a human appearance.
The quieter, quieter, J'onn is a slightly different version of the character, almost as if David Harewood were shading his performance based on the soft tones that Carl Lumbly took to the role of Myr'nn last season. It's a fascinating change and, hopefully, one that will stand.
Lena and James: L-Corp may be making an image of selling mint for aliens who want to assimilate, but the happiness of James and Lena is marred by the threat of prosecution for James's actions as Vigilante. Although he does not want Lena to pull the strings, he accuses his mother with chess games in his prison cell until Lillian delivers incriminating information about his past associates.
Then, Lena takes advantage of that information with the district attorney, who leaves the case of James, provided he never returns to his vigilante forms. (Strangely, James learns this from a news report and not from the district attorney). Lena does not tell James about his role in all this, and if the superhero shows have taught us one thing, it's the secrets. never again be revealed and continue ruining Sooo relationships … there are no future problems on the horizon for these two, no sir!
Oh, and Lena's sympathy with her mother may have been false, but her coldness towards Supergirl seemed very real, which means that the breakup will continue (to break our hearts) in season 4.
Kara and girl: The start of season 4 finds Kara prosperous, and it's exciting to see her sunny optimism with all her strength, especially when you remember the depression swamp she was immersed in at the start of season 3. She's throwing meteors, stopping art thefts, saving falls Trains in Kaznia, and rescue of girls' balloons. He is also killing him in his report work at CatCo, which we saw very little of last year.
Even more delicious? She is serving as a mentor to rookie journalist Nia Nal (Nicole Maines, an effervescent pioneer). Nia's bright and fervent and endearing nervous when she spews a word during her first encounter with Kara, who was once exactly that bright, fervent and nervous. Y Take this: Nia brought a coffee with milk to Kara as she likes, according to the advice of Cat Grant.
I will not lie, friends. I had to take a moment with this because … my heart! Cat Grant not only remembers Kara's coffee preference, but appreciates Kara / Supergirl enough to share this knowledge with the new employee who will be working with her. Calista Flockhart may have been absent for seasons, but still projects a long shadow.
Kara is immersed in mentoring when Nia takes the opportunity to have a story about the fashion industry in Central City. Here is the hope that Nia has absorbed Kara's advice to suppress her fear and make her own waves. (Next page: Kara checks her privilege)
