Eric J. - right after, I'm sure, they explain why they haven't ONCE called Superman for help. Even if, in context of the show, Supergirl is more powerful than he is... he's still Superman. Mon-El is in this up to his elbows, and it's been established that Daxamites are significantly less powerful than Kryptonians. Honestly... with Lena and Winn in support, I think that Kal, Kara, and J'onn (with Mon-El's help) could handle Reign..

At least on the Flash finale, when Barry suggested getting help from Oliver, Wally, or Kara, the Thinker noted that he had already taken them into account. Okay... then there's no need to put them at risk (although Ollie was at risk in ANY case... but while Felicity could be of help, Ollie might a little outclassed.)

But they need a better reason to write off Superman. And  now... what will he do when he finds out about Argo and that his aunt is still alive? Or is this going to be another mistake that Kara will have to apologize for?

And I lost a bet with my wife. I thought the sniper was going to end up being Maggie Sawyer. Well... at least we're spared another three hours of angsty discussion.

J'onn J'onzz has been a sore spot for me for sometime now.
I actually like the character of Director Hank Henshaw, I'm almost wishing Martian Manhunter was never introduced.

Suspension of disbelief lets me believe that Superman is usually off solving his own problems.  But J'onn is RIGHT THERE!

Still no Kal in tonight's episode 21 partly set in/on Argo. A bit clumsy introducing the gun debate stuff but fairly balanced I suppose.

And now, J'onn J'onzz, the most powerful being on the planet, just disarmed his human agents and told them they'll have to go up against sometimes the most dangerous villains in the galaxy with non-lethal weapons.  Thanks, J'onn.

They'll probably get something like the icers used on AOS.

Who knows, maybe we'll see more of the Manhunter because of this......not!

Glue guns, tasers and net projectors? Super magnetic bullet catchers (until someone uses plastic bullets on them)? Kind of the problem with these real world relevance issues in super-universe stories, once you have purely evil kryptonians or super-skrulls almost everyone is "bring out the biggest stuff and just nuke 'em"! :^)

The finale was less a finale and more of a quick homage to SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE followed by a lengthy denouément explaining why certain characters won't be back next year.

Looks like next season will be mash-up of Dark Supergirl and Superman: Red Son.

I wish they'd move on from the "Is she evil or not?" arc with Lena. She was more interesting as Kara's friend.

I don't really understand why/where/when/how the Arrowverse lost its way, but the shows have become generally unwatchable*.  Flash season one was about as perfect a season of genre TV as I've ever seen, but I can't stand the show, now.  It's more down to the writing than anything else.  I keep waiting for someone on the level of Dwayne MacDuffie to step in and really find that perfect balance between sharp drama and tonally on humor, quotable dialogue, long-running b-stories and character delimitating a-stories that he managed on Justice Leauge that built off of the comics but knew exactly what to leave out to work in the medium.  I keep waiting, but I guess it's not going to happen.

*With the exception of Legends, which was pretty dire in the first season but when I sampled randomly in the most recent season turned out to be genuinely entertaining, solid genre stuff.

I didn't understand the time travel save any better than in the Superman movie... if they can just go back and have a redo whenever someone important to them dies... :^(

Anytime now someone dies unnaturally I'll be thinking, why not do what you did back in this episode.

So it looks like there will be a season 4 anyway. Hope it's a good one.

Winn leaving the show is kinda weird, but from Jeremy Jordan's Instagram it sounds like it was his choice. I always support when an actor chooses to leave (vs being fired).

The great thing is maybe they'll use Winn's arc in season four to introduce some more Legion folk. And maybe it could lead to a Legion spin-off....;-)

So lots of character changes. Looks like a few 3 year contracts were up and not everyone wanted to go another term.

As for the finale - I like that the finale of the Arrowverse shows tend to be big super-hero team-ups. 

 I'd like to see more of Erica Durance next season too.

This year's Arrowverse crossover will not only introduce Ruby Rose's Batwoman, but it's now been announced that the three-night event will also see the return of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and the debut of Lois Lane.

Lois Lane has a pretty good track record on TV casting... hope the CW doesn't blow it!

-C!
