The opening logo looks a little darker, as did the first scene. For a moment, I thought they had adapted this Supergirl to the one brought back in the... oh, who the hell knows which iteration of the DCU? The one with the all-black outfit. Which, it appears, was a little close to her character in this episode.

In Kara's dreams, is that a different actress playing Allura? I didn't look it up, but she looks a bit different.
Alex and Maggie - OKAY, OKAY, WE GET IT ALREADY. They're an unusual couple, they have unusual issues, things aren't all Rodgers and Hammerstein for them. Must every screen encounter be a two hour soap opera crammed into three minutes? Couldn't we see them together and happy and in love?
Supergirl is going all "Kryptonian" on us... I guess because she lost Mon-El. But Mon-El loved Kara Zor-El - and while that is also Kara Danvers, it seems as if this dichotomy was a little forced. Supergirl's support system has, for the greatest part, seemed irrelevant to what she's wearing... except, perhaps, for Cat (and even then, it went to both character aspects.) Maybe I just wasn't so happy with the quick resolution of a deep seated issue... she'd been like this for six months, remember.
Also, if I were J'onn or James (sigh...), after a month of this, I would have asked Clark to have a talk with her. And I suppose that possibly he did, but it should have been noted.
It's a shame the actress playing Lena couldn't decide on an accent.
Morgan Edge immediately implies Darkseid to me. And whatever happened to Max Lord? Getting so you can't keep your greed capitalist supermoguls straight any more...
And deus-ex-machiina woman with her adorable daughter just happens to show up at the Girl of Steel Day. I would far have preferred to see a few people trying to help her save her daughter... I can't believe that EVERYONE was so panicked and running away. The same outcome could have occurred, and an observer to this might have been a good hook for later in the season.
In any case... an unkonwn sister? Kidnapped and sent to Earth by the "dark Kryptonians"? How many damned rockets left Krypton ANYHOW? :)
Could this be Power Girl? Or could her adorable daughter have super powers as well? In the comics, I only remember one story where a Kryptonian offspring under normal circumstances didn't have super powers (Kal-El II, if you're interested.)
And a happy ending, of course. As my wife said, "How fortunate that they had an extra shot at the table."
This seemed a shaky start to a new season. I was hoping for a more solid episode, but I guess it gives room to expand on stories... few of which I actually want to see more of, but that's how it goes. But heavens, how I hope that this doesn't turn into "Supergirl's Sister, Alex Danvers."
