Going into Monday night’s new episode of “Supergirl,” it was fairly easy to say that there was going to be a wide array of drama. After all, how could you not be excited about getting to see Laura Vandervoort once again on the show, albeit this time in a role other than Kara Zor-El? Her role in this hour was Indigo, a powerful villain who could transmit herself through time and space to go along with being incredibly powerful. She knew that almost no one could stop her, and that is why with Astra out of the picture, destruction of the world with Non was at the top of her priority list.
The good news for Kara is that she was not exactly successful. However, the bad news is that technically, Indigo is still around. After Winn used a virus in order to corrupt her system and shut her down, Non seems intent on piecing her back together before the end of the season. We are certainly not altogether sad about this, given that she has shown herself so far to be an incredibly effective villain, especially with the knowledge that she is actually responsible for sending Kara to Earth in the first place.
Elsewhere, we definitely feel as though there were a wide array of other interesting developments … even if many of them were very much on the romance front. After all, we had a chance in here to see Winn and Siobhan actually hook up (wait, when did their chemistry start to brew?) while James Olsen and Lucy Lane went their separate ways. To think, she was right about to learn about Supergirl when she decided that a past conversation with Kara convinced her that there was nothing in this relationship that would work for her in the end. We’re being set up now to get something more with Kara and James; whether or not we actually get it remains to be seen, but the pieces are in place.
The best moments of “Solitude” were actually not of the Fortress of Solitude at all, especially given that the refuge was almost an afterthought in the larger picture of the hour. Instead, think for a minute about Kara and Hank Henshaw coming to terms after she learns the truth about him, or an epic battle with a great villain. These are the things we will remember. Grade: B+.
