Storyline

When multiple children get sick from lead poisoning, Morgan Edge points the finger at Lena and blames her creation of the lead bomb she made to save National City from the Daxamites. While Lena knows she never intended any harm, she fears there may have been a flaw in her design, leaving her responsible. Kara teams up with Samantha to clear Lena's name, but it turns out to be harder than they thought. Meanwhile, Alex and Maggie make a crucial decision about the future of their relationship.

Quotes

Lena Luthor: Good afternoon. I'm... I'm Lena Luthor. I know a lot of you here are angry. I... I hear you; I would be myself if I felt someone had poisoned my children, so... my thoughts go out to everyone who's afflicted. I heard what Morgan Edge told you this morning, and I wish I was up here to say something different, but the truth is I don't know if my device hurt children. And until I do, I realize that none of you can have faith in me.

Long Live Sanvers
7 November 2017 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

Well, we knew this day was coming. With Floriana Lima soon exiting her series regular role, the Sanvers relationship wasn't exactly a guarantee going forward. This episode saw the end of that relationship for good. Since Alex and Maggie began dating almost a year ago now, the show saw a significant improvement in quality, which mostly had to do with the fact that these characters finally had depth and something for us to cling onto. I don't necessarily think that will end with this relationship seeing its final kiss, but it will be interesting to see what ensues going forward.

Morgan Edge once again took the honor of being the villain of the week as he made yet another move on Lena Luthor, this time attempting to tarnish her legacy once and for all. He found a way to blame her for the mysterious children being sick from lead poisoning. It wasn't an interesting plot, but it did give Kara and Samantha a reason to build a bond in their fight against Edge. Samantha seems to be adapting to her apparent Kryptonian descent, and I think we're in for a huge mid- season turn from Samantha aka Reign.

While the Edge stuff wasn't all that interesting, I'm glad the show finally decided to build on something that happened the season before and use it for a future plot line. Although it wasn't executed all that well, I'm glad they aren't just forgetting potential hazards that may have caused in seasons past. That to me is a step in the right direction for the show. It does however bring up a larger question: Is Edge the big bad of this year or does that title perhaps belong to Reign?

Overall, it wasn't a great episode, but it was one that definitely built upon characters and plot points for the season to come. Even though that should be something a show should do automatically, that hasn't been a strong point for Supergirl from the get-go.

7.0/10
