Last week on Supergirl, Kara (Melissa Benoist) took on more than she could chew, babysitting for Cat’s (Calista Flockhart) son, while also saving the day as Supergirl. The boy is really shy. has a crush on Supergirl, and gets caught up in the train bomb scare. Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) asks Kara for James (Mechad Brooks) advice. The big bad of the episode were 2 bombs – one at Maxwell Lord’s (Peter Facinelli) train launch, and the other at an airport. Kara chooses the train because of Cat’s son, and sends the DEO to the airport. James also runs to the airport because that’s where Lucy went. Maxwell Lord seems to be behind some of the nefariousness.

TV Review: Supergirl 1.5 “How Does She Do It?”
  |  @   |  

Supergirl
Episode 1.5 “How Does She Do It?”
Directed by Thor Freudenthal
Written by Yahlin Chang, Ted Sullivan
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Ali Adler
Starring Melissa Benoist, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, Mehcad Brooks, David Harewood, Jeremy Jordan, Helen Slater, Dean Cain, Peter Facinelli, Chris Vance
CBS
Air date: Monday, November 23rd, 2015, 8:00pm ET

Last week’s Supergirl was switched with this week’s, in light of the Paris attacks, which was considerate. However, it gave us a few spoilers, but not any horribly crucial ones. The main one is that James Olsen and Lucy Lane (Mechad Brooks and Jenna Dewan-Tatum) were already back together in this episode, to the disappointment of Kara (Melissa Benoist) and James. So “Livewire” focused on one of Cat’s (Calista Flockhart) disgruntled employess, who got demoted to weather duty, and then struck by lightning via a Supergirl conduit. It was also the Thanksgiving episode which found foster mom Helen Slater (I don’t know why emphasizing foster mom bothered me), Alex (Chyler Leigh), Kara, and Winn (Jeremy Jordan) at a tense family dinner. It ends up okay though, with the exception of the reveal that Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) was involved in Alex’s dad’s disappearance.

Last week on Supergirl, we were formerly introduced to Maxwell Lord (Peter Facinelli), a rich genius. I can’t tell if he is a good guy or a bad one. He gets kidnapped by Reactron, Superman’s foe, who comes after Kara (Melissa Benoist) after her exclusive interview with Cat (Calista Flockhart). Kara gets in over her head, and has to be saved by her cousin, thanks to James (Mechad Brooks) calling for help. Cat throws a magazine launch party that gets crashed by Reactron, of course. But Supergirl saves the day, wih some help from Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) and the DEO. James’s ex, Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) comes to work for CatCo.

Spoilers below.
