 Supergirl |  5 × 02 - Stranger Beside Me

And the focus of Supergirl it will be in technology and how it affects people’s lives. Right at the beginning we follow a woman completely alienated in her world with the lenses and Supergirl is not sure how it will affect other people.

SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.

The most interesting plot of the episode was for Lena, who showed her plan to “reprogram” people as machines, putting filters and instructions on her not to hurt people, not to cheat, nor to cheat. This focus of her is cool, but we don’t know how far technology cannot rebel against her and now Hope, her virtual assistant, has a body …

The way Tessmacher fears what Lena might do, but struggles to focus his fear on Leviathan and even tries to alert her, left me in agony, as there is no way to imagine the way he will be introduced in the series.

And Andreas Rojas starts to put his sleeves off by placing Lena against the wall and making it clear that she is no longer welcome, only that she still manages to keep Kara out of her mind by giving materials she doesn’t like and even forcing her things Kara didn’t do. Rojas must still grow a lot and irritate a lot.

Likewise, William Day still doesn’t show much, but we already know that he will be following Kara…

We still had Kelly entering J’onn J’onzz’s mind in an attempt to help him review the memories he has erased, only this ends up making Malefic J’onzz have ideas on how to attack his brother. First he thinks about taking down his allies, but then he thinks about what Kelly told his brother when trying to use the Q wave, as this can restart his brain.

It is not yet clear how Malefic betrayed the Martians, but we see him allied with a White Martian.

From the standard drama, we have Alex advising Querl on how he needs to get to know Nia more, not filling her with flattery. She also learns that she needs to know Kelly, as she did not know about her blueberry allergy, but that is what ends up making her see that at one point Malefic passed for his new lover.

Supergirl is walking, made another episode to situate us about powers, but we still need to align some pieces. We’ll see in the next episodes.
