Supergirl (S4E08) -- "Bunker Hill" -- 12/2/18





SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2

SUPERGIRL

"Bunker Hill" - (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)

KEVIN SMITH DIRECTS; NIA BEGINS TO EMBRACE HER POWERS - Nia (Nicole Maines) has a powerful dream about Agent Liberty (Sam Witwer) but refuses to look at it as a prophetic dream and pushes it aside. After noticing something is bothering Nia, Kara (Melissa Benoist) enlists Brainy's (Jesse Rath) help, and the two try to persuade Nia to embrace her destiny. Meanwhile, Manchester Black (guest star David Ajala) pays Ben Lockwood a menacing visit. Kevin Smith directed the episode written by Rob Wright & Eric Carrasco (#408). Original airdate 12/2/2018.


Finally caught up with this yesterday coming into tonight.

Manchester Black and Agent Liberty IMO have been good additions this seasons.

I know a lot here are super down on this show or simply don't care anymore, but it's been a good season so far.

Since when doesn't EVERYONE in the D.E.O know Kara is Supergirl? Ever since they moved out of the desert in season two they've been calling by her real name willy-nilly.

Who all was teased on the battlefield at the end? I saw familiar helmets but couldn’t place them. One kinda looked like Hawkman.
And Earth-90! Confirmation there’s more than 53.

I also appreciated that the teaser did an homage to Danny Elfman's "Flash" theme.

I think the POTUS wants her to pull a "Tony Stark" so the people can be put at ease.

It's pretty stupid, though. They've got one of the most powerful aliens on the planet helping them out and they just kick her to the curb?

He made it clear he was more concerned about his popularity numbers than anything else. Having her give up her identity to make people "happy" is all he cares about.

Looks like Brainiac, but it may also be Metallo. But the big head logo in the middle makes me think it's Brainiac.

There's supposed to be a lot of guest surprises in this crossover. I wonder if we'll see the Smallville universe, Dean Cain Superman, and the Lightning family.

I'm banking on a Chloe Sullivan appearance.

Looks more like an A on his head, which I'm assuming means it's Amazo.

I have no real excitement for this crossover at all this year. Outside of seeing the original Flash back in costume, everything just leaves me with a big feeling of meh.

I might shit myself if there's a Dean Cain-Superman appearance.

Yup, that's exactly the vibe I got - Superhero Registration.

You were right. It was Amazon and not Brainiac. I didn't see that A on his forehead.
