Tonight, “Supergirl” returns to CBS with an episode that while action-packed, really did not do too much to further the story. Astra and Non are still out there, and despite it looking like Kara was about to have to quit her job with Cat Grant, Hank Henshaw stepped in and provided a perfect clone to ensure that she believes Supergirl to be an entirely different person.
As for that big ending, is Bizarro-Girl coming as a creation of Maxwell Lord? We have to assume that this is something that will surface soon in “Childish Things,” the next new episode airing on January 18. The frustrating part of this is that there is no new episode airing in a week’s time, so the network is making you wait. (Personally, we’d rather have waited an extra week for this and then had no hiatus, but that’s just our opinion.)
The synopsis below doesn’t mention Bizarro-Girl, but does reference our first appearance on the show of Henry Czerny as Toyman. This will help to further illuminate Winn’s backstory, and how he certainly comes from a difficult background:
“Kara does her best to support Winn when his father, the supervillain Toyman, breaks out of prison and seeks out his son for unknown reasons. Also, Cat offers Lucy a job at CatCo and Alex asks Hank to use his powers to help uncover Maxwell Lord’s plans.”
This is one of those few episodes where it seems that the stories surrounding Kara are all equally interesting to whatever she has going on herself, and it remains to be seen whether or not that is the case moving forward beyond it.
