    Nice ending.
    Supe vs supe.. Really LIKED the battle, but HATED the explaination given for WHY clarke was under Rhea's spell (Silver kryptonite, really??)
    Loved the quips between Cat and kara about "tell supergirl to get on olson about his guardian role.. "
    AND loved her quip to herself at the end "You go get em, supergirl".. SO SHE does know but is ok keeping it a secret.

    Really hated that Mon-el had to leave like that, but was surprised that Kara actually pushed the button.. Especially as we've seen time and time again when it comes to family/loved ones, they often WILL not do the RIGHT thing.

    And yet another 'escape pod with a baby in' really???/

    Not the first time silver kryptonite has been used. In Smallville, Brainiac used it to make Clark paranoid. And as they kept mentioning, Daxam was in the same system, so it makes sense that a lot (relatively speaking) of chunks of Krypton would have ended up there.

    I thought they said we were to get our hankies ready? For what exactly?

    Thank you mummy Luthor and Lena for making that Lead contraption I would pardon Lillian for all crimes just for this alone Lena getting one over on her mum is always good to see Liked seeing Winn and Lena working together again. Would like to see them interact more and be all nerdy.

    How come Kara is stronger than Clark? I'm not sure how Kryptonians work but I would have thought maybe Clark would have been stronger with him being on Earth longer and soaking up the rays of the yellow sun longer and also fighting as a super much longer too. And I thought Daxamites couldn't fly, just leap really really far.

    They could have done without the bit at the end with Alex and Maggie, seemed like they just shoved it in there last minute to fill up space.

    Well bye bye Mon-El Now maybe just keep Kara single for a while instead of having every guy that looks at her fall for her, or if you want to give her a love interest maybe go for someone that actually trusts and respects her and listens to what she says that would be great.

    Oh how did the kryptonite get into the bloodstream? And does it have to be visible for it to have an affect?

    Oh and what's the story with the baby at the end?

    AND yet again, NO mention of any ramifications coming Alex's way for REFUSING to fire when she was ordered to do so, giving the Daximites time to shoot up the gun...

    Oh yeah, no ramifications for refusing to obey the president herself. So they can pretty much do what they want without any repercussions

    Not everyone has such a blind hate for Mon-El. I actually thought it was a little sad as their was a sacrifice to save the planet

    I hate the way they wrote him, with no redeeming qualities, I also dislike the way they started writing Maggie and even James. For some weird reason I think the writing is much poorer in season 2 than it was in season 1

    If Kara has to be with someone I'd hope it was someone who respected her and trusted her and not treated here like a damsel needing to be saved, who would also respect her as Supergirl

    After the lead got released the Daxamite soldiers got beamed back up to the ships. Why didn't they beam up Rhea? And why did it take longer for t to hsve an affect on Mon-El? Was it because he was under the yellow sun for longer? Also wouldn't the lead have some kind of effect on humans? Will the lead eventually dissipate or is it in the atmosphere for good?

    As much as I dislike Mon-El, Kara had to sacrifice him to save earth. I would have thought the last thing she'd want to hear is how proud they all are of her. The man she loved had to leave Earth with maybe no possibility of ever returning, If it was me I wouldn't want to be hearing that from everyone. Then Maggie telling Alex she'll be okay or something along those lines. Maybe in time she will but right now she's hurting badly and she needs support. Not people telying her she done the right thing

    I rather suspect they are going to be fighting with their version of the EPA for quite some time.

    They specifically said it was too low a concentration to effect humans and that Mon-El would be able to last longer because of the yellow sun, but I'm not sure about why Rhea stayed behind.

    The only sacrifice he made was right at the end when they had to release the lead. Every other time his first thought was to run

    Ah right, there was so much going on I didn't catch some things. I figured he lasted longer because of the length of time he's been on Earth compared to the others. Rhea staying behind was kinda odd.

    But at least Mon-El is gone, that pleases me and there will be some angsty Kara for a while.

    Who is that baby at the end of the ep?

    That's BS. At the beginning yes but Mon-El hasn't been a coward at all in the back half.

    Well being we have not seen any evidence of repremands for all the other things they have done illegal (IMO) what makes you think they will fear anything the EPA does/says>?
