    I liked this ep. Loved the moral dilemma Olsen wrestled with in regards to his guardian alter ego.. AND How Lena could be hoodwinked like that??

    BUT i really prayed that Mon el pulled that damn trigger.. BUT as we see in damn near all these shows. Familial ties often overrule common sense.

    Moral dilemma? I think it was more a matter of just realizing that armored suit or not, he is NOT a superhero, he's just a plain old human, out of his league against superpowered aliens. Although he didn't outright say it, he didn't seem to like that Supergirl had to step in and save the day. In my opinion, it's a realization that is long overdue.

    And yeah, you can't swing a dead cat in that show without hitting an alien. Heck, there's enough of them in that one city alone to support an "aliens only" bar. I think the writers have gone to that well a little too often.

    Why does everyone betray my poor Lena. All she wants to do is help and do good but everyone betrays her or manipulates her in some way. I mean if she goes evil now I can't say I'd blame her. Hell I'd go evil if I had been through everything that she's went through. I still hope they don't go the "Super and Luthor are friends, Luthor betrays super and becomes evil yada yada yada". Booooriiiiiing. Now to have a Luthor and Super become great friends against all odds, now that I'd love to see. Lena and Kara have amazing chemistry on screen, best chemistry on the show at this present time. Please don't screw what could become a really good friendship up. Lena just wants to be loved and accepted

    His logic for why he went guardian, was imo flawed, as it was based some what on a mix of envy and ego..
    BUT when he was working, he actually did help out. BUT the latter eps, showing some of those he helped FEAR him, made him question is he actually doing heroic stuff, or just beating people up...
    That's where the moral dilemma imo came in..

    As I understand it, there are more than a few people in that universe who feared Supergirl and any other super-powered being. Didn't they do an arc about that in S1 ? So that fear is not unique to Olsen.

    I don't remember that in S1, but the fear Olson got from what i saw, was more cause HE looked just like the baddies, as a thug.

    I think he is talking about when Supergirl got affected with red kryptonite and went on a paranoid rampage

    I wonder when Lena told Kara that she was a real Luthor

    Not just when Supergirl turned evil, but around that time, wasn't there an "equal rights for aliens" group or something active in their society, as a counter to groups that wanted all aliens deported? Didn't Lynda Carter in her role as President make mention of these groups, supporting the equal rights side? There must have been significant anti-alien sentiment in that society at the time.

    Lynda Carter didn't show up until the 3rd or 4th episode this season.

    Maybe it was this year. But there were organized groups of people who were anti-alien, and Carter's character was against them. Signed a law or something about it.
