Looks like Kara and Mon-El are now a couple offscreen as well.

I fucking knew it. Once I saw she was divorced I had a suspicion she was boning this guy. He has a similar look to her exhusband.

I was thinking the exact same thing and been kind of expecting this.

"Come home with us and help make Daxam great again.".

So did Krypton's sun not explode? If Daxam is still there it seems just Krypton did.

The most interesting part of this episode was the lead in to the crossover.

I believe Krypton itself exploded and the remnants rained down on Daxam causing massive destruction, but I guess the planet survived.

No big surprise about Melissa and Chris. As soon as she got separated this was the likely reason. He had broken up with his long term girlfriend too. I think he had recently just bought a house with her too.

Yeah they have had good chemistry the last few eps, so no surprise.

I have a suspicion that Melissa Benoist having to relocate to Vancouver while her husband stayed in L.A. with his own acting career had a lot to do with the end of their marriage.

I guess everyone now knows at the DEO that Kara Danvers is Supergirl. She was walking around as Kara inside the DEO working with the team. That felt like a continuity error which got overlooked.

A lot has been overlooked it seems, because besides you and me, nobody has cared to comment on the episode.

Re: Supergirl (S2E16) -- "Star-Crossed" -- 3/20/17

Seems like most know.

As for those who escaped fort rozz...known criminal in the art world? Still don't get where all these aliens came from from season one to two. If he is from fort rozz they can't just pick him up? The ton shift has been a bit odd. Supergirl often feels a bit too self righteous at times this season.

Re: Supergirl (S2E16) -- "Star-Crossed" -- 3/20/17

I was confused when Mon-El's parents asked him to come back to Daxam again when it looked pretty clear the planet was toast.

The close up shots of Teri Hatcher really show she's gotten some work done on her face. I used to think she was really attractive, especially back in the days of Lois and Clark.

Even though Mon-El and Kara haven't known each other long, I thought the breakup scene between them was well acted and had some emotion to it.

I have to at how this show treats Winn like an idiot. 1st he makes himself look like a jackass last season professing his love for Kara, now he hooks up with an alien thief.

Hatcher has had so much work done it's totally distracting. Every scene with the parents was terrible because those actors were only cast for stunt factor. The whole art heist plot was pretty lame as well. Just when everybody realized the show was better off without Jimmy/Guardian, there he is again to take it all down.

Noticed that too. Frankly, while I think secret identities still makes sense for a lot of heroes, I do think it's ok to move away from them for others. Or at least allow a larger group in their circle.

They said the planet is livable again. There were bringing their people back to start again.

Clearly many here are just "Hate Watching" this show at this point.

Re: Supergirl (S2E16) -- "Star-Crossed" -- 3/20/17

"You need to come back and make Daxam great again".

The sad thing is, I saw an interview with the writers and producers where they said that their political commentary has been the highlight of the season and the strongest element of the show.

It was nice to see Sorbo and Hatcher. Hatcher looks like she had some work done but Sorbo still looks good. He has a lot of screen presence and I'm surprised he never had another major TV role. Still it was GOOD casting and nice to see them both.

Winn's storyline of having a hot alien girlfriend seems even more stupid now. Speaking of Winn, when did him and Alex suddenly become besties? He was supposed to be real close with Kara and they haven't had one scene together.

I'm really starting to dislike Mon EL and Kara both. Kara just seems more and more like she's becoming a bigger bitch each week, being always self-righteous and moody. Mon El could have been an even better character and could be portrayed so well and have such a good arc. Instead he only exists to be a love sick puppy that follows Kara around and acts like a jealous ex when he can't have her.

I never realized how dumb the Guardian suit looked until I saw it in daylight. He looks like some robot from a fifties Sci-Fi show. I'm starting to wonder if the reason they brought in The Guardian is so that James can stay on the show without the actor being in Vancouver all the time.

Overall this show still sucks.

I really enjoyed season one while watching on netflix and I just bought season two on VUDU last night. Now you people are making me regret that decision.

I did something I rarely do. It won't mean anything but I wrote the show from the CW website to let them know how poor the writing has been especially the social commentary.

I loved this show previously and looked forward to it but now I've lost interest. I'm thinking the writers are 19 years old because they treat relationships like high-schoolers.
