Supergirl S1E19 "Myriad" 4/11/2016

Squeee! All 3 live-action Supergirls in the same episode!

Harrison Ford is hitting on Cat Grant? Boy, his wife will be pissed.

I thought this was perhaps the second-best episode of the season, right behind the Flash X-over ep ("World's Finest").

I found the "jumping off the building" bit really interesting. SG saved her besties, but wasn't too broken up about the people (person?) she wasn't able to save. It seemed she was a bit upset, but just moved on with almost no mention of it.

I also found it really cool that the goal of the bad guys were to enslave the population, but for it's own good. There are times when I think that would be a really good idea for the people who are consciously and willfully destroying our ecosystem. But then I realize I'm fully complicit in that act, driving a gas vehicle and adding my waste to the landfills.

Looking forward to next week!

The woman she couldn't save should have been wearing a red blouse.

I've said this a number of times before but I really wish Superman wasn't part of this universe. I thought he was treated very poorly in this episode.

I actually thought they handled it pretty well. Except that they had two different explanations of why he couldn't help. One was that he was off-world doing something, and the other he was under myriad control. They could have just left him off-world and I would have been fine with it.

But you'd think if Non had control over Superman it would make his job a little easier. Non should have pit him against SG at the end rather than her sister.

Well, I guess having the mind-controlled populace of National City march down the street instead of driving does do something to fight global warming.

I did kinda wonder where they were marching. Home? Nearby ledges? Around and around the block? Seems like Cat's employees were the only ones at work.

I didn't like how Supes was mind controlled. You see him swoop in, but from a distance. And then that's it. I know Superman isn't supposed to be in this show. If that's the case, why show him swoop in from a distance? Just keep him "off planet" and unable to assist his cousin. Just feels like a weird tease to me.

I thought it was to drive home how pervasive Myriad is.

It would have been much simpler if Superman had been off-planet. The explanation for why Myriad could take over his mind but not Supergirl's, was weak. Also, Non not using Superman to take out Supergirl? And Supergirl not thinking of knocking Max Lord out and clamping his anti-Myriad doohickey on Superman? Earth's greatest superhero out of commission and nobody does anything with it? Geesh.

Hearing that Superman was off world seemed to do the trick for me, but when Supergirl got a text from him saying he was on his way, I thought, "Damn, that's some cell plan he's got that has INTERPLANETARY service!"

And was it just me, or did anyone else see Cat Grant's expression as one of possible realization when she was embracing Supergirl? It looked as if Cat might be rethinking just who Supergirl might be.

Ah, maybe I read too much into her expressions.

They needed it to explain why Supergirl wasn't affected.

I've been saying that for a while now. I think she knows but is just being coy about it.

No they didn't. She wasn't affected for the same reason MM wasn't affected. Neither are human. Actually the reason given for it affecting Superman was pretty weak.

I enjoyed the episode, but the whole thing with Superman was not well written. I agree that he should have just been off world and that's it.

Also how did Max and Kara know that Indigo was still alive? As far as anyone knew she was killed by the super computer virus.

I'm not sure why hugging Supergirl would do that though.
I can't recall Cat hugging "Kira".

Maybe Cat was surprised by her own emotions.

Didn't Barry say in the last episode that Central City didn't exist in this universe or was it just STAR labs didn't exist?

As soon as Max Lord said that the evil Kryptonians were using his satellite network to broadcast the Myriad signal, I expected Supergirl to fly into orbit and destroy his satellites. Problem solved!

I did enjoy the meta references to Harrison Ford. And I also noticed Cat's reaction to the SuperHug.

How's MM faring with that non human thing? Myriad had nothing to do with kryptonians, right? No?

I had the same thought. That's another thing superheros need to think about: don't hug the same person in both your identities.

I agree with the previous statements that it would have been better if Superman had stayed off-planet.

Especially if your body is hard enough for bullets to bounce off it. That would seem to be a fairly distinctive feature...

When Alex showed up in the Iron Man suit outfitted with Kryptonite glow sticks, I remembered how Astra and her crew all had little patches sewn into their outfits that disrupted Kryptonite radiation so that they wouldn't be affected by it as much.

Then I wondered why, in general, Supergirl doesn't add a couple dozen of those patches to her outfit.

I did, too, but I also noticed they they mentioned that the satellites were now surrounded by force fields and I assumed they were trying to imply she couldn't simply destroy them because of the force fields (though I think another sentence to that effect would've been worthwhile).

She may not have been able to destroy the satellites due to the force field, but shouldn't she have been able to knock them out of their orbit?

As far as Superman, my guess is that he will play a greater part in the second episode, or if it is a season ending cliffhanger, then the first episode of next season. Once Myriad is stopped, they still are going to need to round up some bad guys, and my bet is that as soon as Myriad is disabled, Superman will play a pivotal role in rounding up the bad guys.

I'm also thinking they should have just left Superman being "off world", unless they do indeed have another plot line coming up where he plays a part.

Central City defiantly exists in Supergirls universe. It was mentioned in this episode but it it does not have the Flash and it most likely a complete different Central City.

I only just got to watch this last night. I really enjoyed it. I did get a bit annoyed that they had Superman show up only to get put under Myriad's control, but that was still nice. As for keeping him off-planet, I'm glad he was there. He's got to show up sooner or later on the show, even if it's only in ambiguous shots. The nature of the show will mega events occurring, and he can't conveniently be off-planet every time.

Though if I were Kara, I would have just scooped him up and tried to fly him out of the city so he'd recover. Of course, that would mean you'd have to actually have Superman in the show, and they're not going to do it.
