Ms. Jansen - why would we assume that Lena Luthor HASN'T determined that Kara Danvers is Supergirl? Just because she hasn't said anything? If you watch Lena's reactions after some of their interactions, she seems to know... something. And what else is there to know about Kara? TANGENT: Berlanti couldn't find an actress who can keep ONE accent? I don't care if Lena was raised in London and has a British accent... hell, I don't care if the Luthors had to go to Australia to avoid Lex's reputation... but could we PLEASE find an actress who can KEEP ONE ACCENT? This "Britlish" accent Lena has is making me crazy.*

They caught me off last night... instead of a nice curve ball, the young lady reading out of the Kryptonian book said the last ingredient was nitrogen... and darn it, but it was nitrogen. Heaven's sake, she KNOWS Mon-El is right there! Why not try something to mess up their plans?
I hate the "happy coincidences" and "deus ex machinas" that litter the DCW-verse. M'rynn and Ruby "happen" to find foosball the answer to their problems. Harrison Wells "happens" to stumble upon an emotional key to help defeat the Thinker. Mr. Terrific "happens" to find something in his research while working on another project. Look, I'm as big a fan of serendipity as anyone... but not EVERY week on EVERY show. Maybe a little good ol' detective work or scientific research could do the trick?
That Jimmy Olsen sequence about racial prejudice hit every button for me, in a good way, and it was a win. NOT heavy handed, NOT too preachy... but a great scene.
I still predict that Supegirl will meet more of the Legion at the end of the season, but I'm content right now. And DAMN! Every time I see Mon-El in costume is a thrill. Honestly, we're two flight rings and a Professor Potter invention for Winn away from the DEO being a Legion adjunct team in the 20th century... YAY!
*Yeah, right. I'll blame it on that. :P
