Supergirl: "Midvale" Review

Supergirl: "Midvale" Review

For all that arrows love the flashback system (or did, up till the present day season), flashbacks have by no means gotten a great deal play on the various other arrowverse indicates. “Midvale” is a super instance of why that is. something momentum Supergirl’s 1/3 season has controlled to generate during the last month got here to a screeching halt in this bland, unremarkable ride down memory lane.

It’s commonly no longer a wonderful sign while the most memorable moment of the episode is a reference to a totally specific dc display. Granted, it became quite cool to no longer best pay attention Smallville's Chloe Sullivan name-dropped (whole with a point out of her “wall of strange”), but for her to play an unseen but important role in the story. Dc attempted to have Chloe catch on in the comics a while back, but she never absolutely stuck around. It’s first-rate that she hasn’t been completely forgotten.

The Chloe cameo is appropriate given how lots this episode felt like a riff on early, high college-technology Smallville. Once more, you have got a youngster Kryptonian with budding powers seeking to navigate an international of bullies, homework, and romance without revealing their powers to the sector. and as in Smallville, reputedly plenty of random townspeople have the makings of a supervillain in them. It wouldn’t wonder me to learn that this show began existence more on this mildew, with kara conceived as a clumsy youngster rather than a barely much less awkward grownup.

Supergirl: "Midvale" Review

Whatever the case, the big takeaway here is that Supergirl is tons higher off for going the course it did in preference to trying for the teen drama angle. There was just nothing memorable about this excessive faculty flashback. it doesn’t seem like we learned something substantial approximately Kara and Alex's early life together that we hadn’t already gleaned from beyond episodes. as a substitute, we had been treated to a very generic, cleaning soap opera-worthy tale of homicide, forbidden love and two intrepid teenagers fixing a kooky thriller. It felt just like the stuff of bad ya novels. no longer to mention that the scene between younger Kara and her “mom” rubbed me the wrong manner. that seemed like a totally weird, manipulative thing for J’onn to do to Kara. manifestly, the point there has been to illustrate how J’onn turned into already turning into a father parent to the Danvers sisters early on, but it didn’t have the desired impact.

I do think the brand new actresses for younger kara (wonder’s Izabela Vidovic) and young Alex (Olivia Nikkanen) have been nicely forged. Nikkanen, specifically, is a useless-ringer for Chyler Leigh in both look and mannerisms. however, neither changed into given a whole lot to work with here. hopefully, we’ll see the 2 reprise their roles later on and address a more compelling storyline next time around. And perhaps the display can perform a little greater with Helen Slater as well.

Supergirl: "Midvale" Review

The whole flashback story line could have been extra tolerable if the episode accompanied the arrow approach and sprinkled flashback scene in the middle of a present-day struggle. as an alternative, the flashback ruled the episode, with most effective a pair of present-day scenes to bookend the tale. this simplest served to highlight the needless nature of Alex and kara’s go back domestic. what did they surely do during their return to Midvale besides sleep in their vintage bedroom for one night after which directly power lower back to National City? How does one top night time’s sleep permit them to magically work through all their emotional problems and wake up like nothing is amiss? it’s all of the extra frustrating due to the fact leigh and Melissa Benoist has been so robust in that lone telescope scene. you can’t help however wonder what might have been finished if this episode spent greater time inside the gift.

Possibly what bothers me maximum approximately this episode is that it appears as although the writers are seeking to quietly flow past the Alex/maggie breakup as opposed to explore the lingering emotional toll it’s taking over Alex. That breakup has established to be one of the actual sore factors this season. something behind-the-scenes instances would possibly have encouraged Floriana lima’s departure, the writers have by no means be capable to properly justify the abrupt dissolution of this very powerful and well-realized romance. Supergirl become a higher show due to Alex and Maggie's romance, and predictably, now it appears to be struggling without it.
