The fight scene on the mid-season finale episode was amazing. This wasn't by being grandiose and full of effects, but instead by being stripped down and believable.

The part where Supergirl and Reign (literally) crashed into an office holiday party, with no score music but the in-plot Christmas song still playing on the office speaker system, gave the viewer a sense that living in this fantasy world where superheroes exist could actually be very scary for the average person.

One moment you're drinking eggnog with co-workers. The next, you're cowering behind the tables as two super-beings pound each other and wreck everything around you.

And then maybe only a minute later, they're gone again.

A nice way of emotionally heralding the end of days that Reign represents...

Oh, and did anyone else think Satan Girl, or was it just me?

And... LEGION OF SUPER HEROES! LEGION OF SUPER HEROES! LEGION OF SUPER HEROES!!!

My only question is why is Brainy blue?

Because of his unrequited love for Supergirl, even though he got into her head in a way that even Mon-El never could...

Ugh!  The brunette "Saturn Girl" has telekinetic powers.  They're all wearing black.  Even "Streaky" is an all-black cat!  Who names a completely black cat "Streaky"?!?  Are there seriously no orange cats in Canada?

I'm really starting to think Berlanti and co. are thinking "THIS'll tick off the fans!"

Thank you, Mr. Rhoades. I'll be here all week! Try the veal! Don't forget to tip your waitress! "EEEK!" <thud.>

I am a little bugged that Imra is a telekinetic brunette... but then, Brainiac 5 is blue, and Mon-El is more like Halk-Kar. Considering how the DC TV Universe makes my head explode anyhow, I'm leaving options open. I don't WANT to be ticked off...

But I gotta say... here's Reign tearing up National City*... Supergirl is in critical condition... only three Legionnaires (and what's more, the one who could have damaged Reign - Saturn Girl - had her powers changed)... I mean, I get wanting to salvage the integrity of this show... but if this isn't a job for Superman, what is?

I am a freak for the LSH, and I even wonder if next season might have Kara in the 31st Century for a while?

*Before it was purchased by PNC, we used to have National City Bank here in Cleveland. So every once in a while... I look up in the sky.
