Cheers to Supergirl for serving up heroines without capes. Whether it’s DEO agent Alex (Chyler Leigh) fighting crime with ladylove cop Maggie (Floriana Lima, right, with Leigh) or badass mogul Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) battling her own evil bloodline, Melissa Benoist’s Kara sure has found herself a super-impressive sisterhood in season 2.
Supergirl episode 2x13 was a very weird episode, to say the least. What’s even weirder is that
Mxyzptlk (I totally copied and pasted his name) wasn’t the strangest thing that happened during the ep. I mean, skipping the whole shooting at Supergirl scene, where you can clearly see the people behind her that didn’t give a shit about the gunshots - which, I mean, I know America has a huge gun problem, but I don’t think that’s quite how it works -, or the flying car that went on fire immediately after hitting the ground (my friend has been in a car accident where the car ended up upside down, and she would be dead if cars were so easy to explode)… Leaving all of these things behind… what the fuck was that? Don’t get me wrong, good for Winn who now has a girlfriend (#winnforthewin!)(<– yeah, don’t comment that), although she seems fled from Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and her whole entrance and then their relationship development was freaking rushed (they might as well proposed to each other in perfect Mr. Mxyzptlk style at that point), and awesome for Sanvers, even though they hadn’t so much screentime this time either (which they kinda promised to us, but I guess Mon’Ew closeups were somehow more important…), but the whole episode felt like a patchwork thing to me.
I have to say that Kara’s happiness is my happiness (and damn, how incredibly gorgeous she was in this episode), so I’ve sadly accepted that is extremely unlikely that she’s gonna end up with Lena (what a waste of chemistry, though… ugh, it pains me), but that said, Flann’El is really such a poor choice. In this episode in particular he behaved like a total douche, all testosterone a no synapses, just straight up trying to punch the guy, practically demanding his execution and then challenging him to a duel for what? Kara’s hand? In which century does he think they are?? I didn’t like that he was completely ignoring the fact that Kara is a strong woman - like… super strong -, perfectly capable of handling a random idiot - although provided with insane powers -, and he kept whining about this guy, while doing and saying such stupid things, only because he felt threatened. This is such typical of straight man, the pulling up a chaos because their pride is hurt or threatened and they have to show to the girl that they’re strong and bla bla bla. This is so wrong in any scenario, but in this one? In this one it’s nuts. That’s Supergirl, you idiot! She stops planes and missiles! She’s bulletproof! She flies, for Rao’s sake, she ain’t a damsel in distress and she told you! You can fill me with all the reasons why he behaved like that, like that he cares so much to Kara that he lost it, but that’s still incredibly immature and he ain’t a teenager: he’s supposed to be an adult. I just hate to see women having to keep the men on the right path ‘cause they can’t keep their shit together by themselves and they have to be schooled all the time.
Anyway, zero Lena’s mentions in this Valentine’s episode. We had Luthors for the real Valentine’s Day, so I’ll pretend that’s enough…
[1 of 2] (Re: Your post about ignoring hate and focusing on Winchester dicks.) And there shall come a time when hatred rises and darkness shall fall upon the land of Tumblr. The Lord, our Father, Chuck, shall hear the cries of his faithful and send onto us our salvation: the penises of prophecy. They shall be born by brothers bearing the name, Winchester. And they shall be glorious. Our saviors shall cometh, tall and firm, ready to plunge forth.
[2 of 2] Rejoice onto these two saviors, and the Lord, Chuck, shall reward thee. He shall look upon his children, find one of with eyes of truest blue and ass of perfection and say unto him, “Castiel, thine member, too, is needed.” And the Winchesters shall bear witness to perfect-assed child of God’s arrival and declare him as glorious as they. Together, they shall form the Holy Trinity of Penises and there shall be peace throughout Tumblr. *mic drop*
Can we take a moment to appreciate how incredible it is that One Direction hasn't produced any new content as a group for at least a year but we all still go so hard for them that they're still winning awards? I don't think any other band would be able to say they have that sorta power!
