    I'm really starting to dislike the romances on the show. Alex and Kara once seeked each other out to grieve together. Now they grieve alone so their "love interests" can come along to comfort them. The Alex/Kara relationships was one of the best things about the show but it's all about Alex/Maggie and Kara/Mon-El these days. At least Kara/Mon-El won't last long after what Jeremiah said to him about him knowing who he is, that will come out and tear them apart

    I've heard lead poisoning is kinda bad at this time of year

    And while I see your point about the Danvers sisters seemingly slowly losing the bond they had before, this time the rift was real, Alex didn't want to believe those who saw through this whole Jeremiah suddenly reappearing shenanigans. So they'll need some time to make up.

    I could get the lead

    Yeah here it was real, but in general the writers have really dropped the ball with them, just so they can push the romance drama and it's starting to make me dislike the Sanvers ship and I already hate the Karamel ship as Mon-El never listens, he treats Kara like a prize possession, thinks she is lucky to be with him and he's egotistical, plus he sees no problem with objectifying women. Anyway yeah, the Danvers sisters are getting badly neglected this season. Their relationship was the best thing about the show IMO and I really miss it.

    Take the Luthors ep when Kara stormed off and started beating up blocks of concrete, I expected Alex to go look for her sister asw she said she knew when she was sad or disappointed, guess she doesn't know when Kara is crazy mad. I was gobsmacked when it was Mon-El that showed up.

    It's getting to the point now that the only eps I really look forward to is the one's where Lena shows up as we see a good friendship here with Kara, and I freakin love Lena

    I'm starting to fast forward through the shippy scenes. I simply don't care about any of them.

    And even AFTER being shown what Mon=el was saying was right, she still let him go...

    Just like in other shows. Familial bonds BLIND the heroes to the truth WAY TOO often.

    I think someone owes Mon-El an apology. Actually two people.

    More like 3.. Kara, Alex AND Jonn. BUT then as we have seen in other shows. When it comes to family, heroe's eyes are always blinded to the truth, often till its too late.

    No one will apologise. No one apologised to Kara after them not listening to her in Luthers other than James. Mon-El is a selfish ****** anyway so I don't care

    So welcome Lyra! You got the very important job to be the someone with less screen time than Maggie! Dang, Maggie is a regular, so it doesn't count. Okay than her job is to make her abduction next episode an added incentive to Wynn to destroy Cadmus. Plus she's cute.

    Mon-El was an ass. Again. And what if he was right? This is not the way to do things. Collect proofs first then accuse long lost family members of being brainwashed or planted.

    And his speech to Wynn about what is he to Kara if he's purpose is not to protect her and be the knight to her damsel in distress? Really??? You don't know it Mon-El, then get the fork lost! (This is so stupid.)

    Well she could not overpower him, and the only alternative was to shoot him with her gun (that she loves so much).
    I guess we all have family members we'd like to shoot sometimes, but it's easier said than done...

    Winn basically told him what Kara has been telling him for weeks and now he listens? The guys a muppet. I could never be with a guy that totally disregards everything I say

    Then shoot him in the leg so he can't escape...

    And imo that is WHY so many military orgs DO have rules about fraternization/workig with kin.. CAUSE YOU lose your objectivity when it comes to family/loved ones, and often do the WRONG THING "just cause it helps so and so"..

    Did you see which gun it was? It was the gun that she loves so much, but unfortunately it only has one setting, and that's not stun. And neither like that gun that first tortures you, then it kills you, and thirdly... Nope there isn't a third funcion [whistles]

    I started watching this again yesterday to try and catch up with it before the new season. I didn't really care for this episode. The episode relied on almost everyone being blinded by their emotions and behaving irrationally to move the plot forward, this was particularly annoying when it came to J'onn and his behavior. The personal drama also seemed really manufactured, particularly the drama between Kara/Mon-El and Kara/Alex. This show has never had the best writing, but, for me, this season seemed to have a really hard time creating believable drama between characters. I'd expect characters close to Jeremiah to be annoyed with other characters not believing his story wholesale, but Kara's reaction to Mon-El and Alex's reaction to Kara seemed like gross overreactions.

    If you notice, Most everyone of these shows the 'hero' is always blinded by emotions, especially when it comes to family.

    And of course, the shipping. Always the shipping. Far too much shipping in superhero shows these days.

    The latest seasons of Supergirl and The Flash had too much relationship drama in my opinion (The Flash was kind of annoying with it in season 2 as well, but season 3 seemed to have more, at least it was more in the forefront). Season 5 of Arrow and 2 of Legends of Tomorrow the right amount of relationship drama for me. I hate "Olicity", and that relationship predictably made a return towards the end of Season 5, but it was nowhere near as saturated with Olicity nonsense as season 4 was, which had even more poorly written ship junk than Supergirl and The Flash combined. I didn't really care for the relationship in season 2 of LoT either, it came out of nowhere and the characters chose to have sex right in the middle of a mission to save their friends and an important historical figure, but it was in the background for the most part, so it didn't really bother me. Agents of SHIELD and the Marvel Netflix shows aren't bad with the relationship stuff, and their relationships are more believable and maturely written than the CW DC shows.

    I'm basically talking about Supergirl; I never got into Flash or Arrow. AoS never seemed to be over the top with it though.

    I would say it's a CW thing, but the relationship drama on The 100 never really seemed too poorly written, over the top, or too much in the forefront (except for maybe very early in the first season, but even then it wasn't that bad in my opinion).
