Kara’s in a coma after getting the tar beat out of her last episode by Reign but wait a minute…yay! The Legion of Super-Heroes! They’ll save the d…oh. Wait. No, they’re refusing. For some wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey reason. Or rather, plot reason so they can come in at the last minute and save the day.
Tip, CW writers, leave that utter nonsense to Moffat and the rest of the Dr Who writers. They do it so much better than you.
Don’t get me wrong, it was nice to see Braniac 5 turn up (costume issues aside) and also to see them finally fight together at the end, but the whole “stuck in your own mind” trope and the trio’s unwillingness to fight until the final, absolutely last, this time I really mean it, honest, oh she’s awake to help, thank god, moment…well, that was rather crap.
You can do better Berlanti.
