This, by the way, was delightful. Nicole Maines is so obviously loving the hell out of being a superhero.

If they don't find somewhere else to put Brainy and Dreamer then they really hosed up.

Well I guess thinking about it, even if the characters don't go anywhere else the CW has a tendency to reuse actors (when they're not the lead) so they'll probably land on some other show in a year or so. This isn't Jesse Rath's first go around for a CW show.

I think Brainy, in all of his functional dysfunction would work great on Legends. Team needs a new future person and letting him go ham and do silly stuff like when he was basically a Nic Cage version of his character was great. I think I also posted earlier that it doesn't even need to be the Brainy from Supergirl but another Brainiac that looks like him

I wish I was half as good looking as Jessie Rath did in that suit.
2009 wasn't that long ago. Assure me it wasn't that long ago.

Mia singing 9-5 is pretty great. Also glad they had Kara have a boyfriend rather than some Milhouse that followed her around that she had to deal with.

Chyler Leigh directed this episode. Good for her.

So next week is the mid season finale. Then I guess Superman and Lois return for the rest of their run in the Tuesday timeslot. Is Supergirl going to get punted to another timeslot or does it have to wait until S&L is done? Wiki says S&L has 15 eps in s1(10 left) and Supergirl has 20(14 left) so it could be a long break.

It would have been a nice way to compliment this week's premiere of Legends where Ava phones up the ruins of the DEO HQ.

They already announced that Supergirl is coming back in late August, around the same time that the second season of Stargirl debuts. No, I have no idea why they're basically pushing the rest of the show to the 2021-2022 season beyond they need a buffer in case there are covid delays getting affecting production for next season's slate?

I feel like these were two of the best episodes in the entire show's run, really great stuff and Brainy and Dreamer need a spin off show immediately.

Wow that is a huge mid season break. So I wonder if next episode wraps up any current plots and August will be like a mini season.

I think the people who make Legends would rather not be the network's island of misfit toys and control who is and isn't on their show.

I know they wanted to protect the timeline and all but would it have really hurt things that much if Brainy and Nia had pulled a BttF on Alex and tell her that their mighty alien powers have scanned her and it turns out she's super gay for women? It just would have saved her a lot of pain and suffering.

I mean maybe but the misfit toys are some of the best characters and Legends is basically built on the backbone that you are at least keeping up with some of the other shows.

Okay, it makes complete sense that Alex's fear vision was nothing but declarative sentences.

That was not how I figured they were going to handle Kara's rescue mission, but it was an interesting experiment nevertheless. Though it was to the episode's detriment that I knew it was the mid season finale and that we're going to have to wait so long for the rest of the season. I spent the whole thing more focused on how much time was left than the character work.

Can we just go back to 2009 Midvale again? That was *so* much better.

I'll be glad to get back to Superman & Lois, though sadly Nia and Brainy (probably) won't be in Smallville.

Speaking of Nia, it definitely feels like they're setting her up to reconcile with her sister and learn dream interpretation from her. I'll be real disappointed if it's Nia who has to extend an olive branch though.

I don't think the gimmick of everyone experiencing their fears really works when you tell us up front that that's what's about to happen. As soon as things start going catastrophically wrong we know it's all fake and nothing we're watching has any stakes. Also, we didn't really learn anything about any of the characters and they didn't learn anything about themselves, so what was the point?

Also, when they all "overcame their fears", some of them... didn't? Like, Nia's nightmare ended with the exact thing she feared but then she woke up anyway.

seems to me like that's a plot thread to explore when the show comes back.

Yeah Lena and Kelly did. Nia definitely did not and didn't seem like Alex did either. Although it looked like Nia knew she didn't when she came to, but I could be wrong about that I didn't watch it til after midnight so I was a bit sleepy.

This was low-key my favorite part of the episode and I'm glad that there's been some more humor injected back into the show lately. These are fun characters, they're allowed to have fun every so often!

I did enjoy seeing Kelly pick up that hunk of door like a shield. I assume that's gonna pay off later this season, maybe she finds Jimmy's old Guardian gear?
