    Season 2 Episode 17 - "Distant Sun" - March 27, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o....E2.80.9317.29

    Kara is attacked by a series of alien bounty hunters. Mon-El suspects his parents put the bounty in hopes that he will abandon the Earth if she is dead; his suspicion is confirmed after J'onn telepathically interrogates one of the hunters. Kara suggests she and Mon-El meet with Rhea, his mother, to dissuade her. However, Rhea refuses to listen and attempts to kill Kara using Kryptonite. Mon-El agrees to leave Earth if she spares Kara's life. Against Marsdin's orders, J'onn helps Kara rescue Mon-El from his parents' ship, and after a fierce battle, King Lar Gand agrees to let Mon-El stay on Earth. Marsdin is revealed to be a White Martian. Rhea kills Lar Gand for what she views as his betrayal, and vows to return to Earth to reclaim Mon-El. Meanwhile after an encounter with a former girlfriend of Maggie's, Alex learns Maggie omitted to tell her that she cheated on the woman, which prompts a frank discussion, with Alex asking Maggie to trust her with her secrets.


    Yeah, like the royal parents were just going to go away after looking for their son for the last 4 years.

    Rhea throws Mon-el into a cell. Wow, Tiger Mom of Daxam.

    Much later Queen Rhea killed King Lar. Did not see that coming.



    There is a 3 week hiatus and the next episode will air April 24, ,2017.

    Season 2 Episode 18 - "Ace Reporter" - April 24, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o....E2.80.9317.29

    Lena invites Kara to a press conference being held by her former boyfriend, Jack Spheer, who unveils Biomax, new nanobot technology that can heal human ailments. After the conference, Kara is approached and told the human trials of Biomax were faked, but her source is killed by the nanobots before she is told more. Kara and Mon-El crash Lena and Jack's dinner date and take Jack's keycard to his office, discovering a footage showing Jack injecting Biomax into himself. Kara later shows the footage to Lena, who confronts Jack and discovers he is being controlled by his CFO, Beth Breen, and discovers the side effect of the nanobots, loss of free will. Supergirl then turns up to save Lena; but when the former is trapped by the nanobots, Lena is forced to deactivate them, killing Jack in the process. Breen is incarcerated; and Snapper rehires Kara at CatCo for providing the Biomax story. Lena is visited by Rhea. Meanwhile, Winn brings Lyra onto the team with him and Guardian, causing tensions that lead to Lyra leaving the team. James returns her to the team with the condition that she follows his instructions.
    I always hate the awkward, embarrassing, clumsy Kara moments but once past that this was a decent episode. I liked Jack Speer, the same actor plays Ravi on iZombie. He carries off lead romantic man very well.

    Season 2 Episode 19 - "Alex" - May 1, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o....E2.80.9317.29

    Alex is abducted by a person who demands the release of Peter Thompson, who is serving a life sentence for several felonies. The kidnapper is identified as Rick Malverne, Thompson's son and also a childhood friend of the Danvers, having deduced Kara's alter ego on his own. Rick is captured and taken to the DEO. Alex sends a location to Winn, who informs Kara, who rushes to the place, which is a ruse, and triggers an alarm, causing water to start filling Alex's cell. While the DEO and Kara refuse to negotiate with Rick, Maggie breaks Thompson out of prison before they are confronted by Kara, who convinces Thompson to reveal Alex's location. Kara and Maggie manage to rescue Alex in time. J'onn decides to wipe Rick's memory. Meanwhile, Rhea gives Lena the schematics of a high-technology device for transporting matter. Lena soon deduces that Rhea is an alien and becomes angry; but Rhea manages to convince her to continue working with her.
    The main theme is just because you have superpowers does not mean you are all knowing and all wise and feel so smug and superior because you still make mistakes and do dumb things. Seriously with your xray vision you can find a door or window to go through you have to smash through the roof.

    Season 2 Episode 20 - "City of Lost Children" - May 8, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o....E2.80.9317.29

    James becomes discouraged with being Guardian when he realizes that those he helps are afraid of him. The DEO investigates a Phorian woman who uses her telekinetic powers to cause rampage. James tracks down her son, Marcus, who refuses to speak with anyone but James, who spends time bonding with him. With Rhea's encouragement, Lena completes the matter transporter, which Rhea activates, causing Marcus to nearly destroy the office with his powers. Afterwards, the DEO discovers Rhea and Lena's involvement; and that Marcus's mother's "attack" was unintentional on her part. Marcus leads James and Winn to his mother, who is with a large group of Phorians. Rhea reactivates the transporter, causing the Phorians to lose control. James manages to calm Marcus, who in turn calms the others. Kara, J'onn, and Mon-El attempt to shut down the transporter but are unsuccessful. Mon-El confronts Rhea but hesitates to kill her. The transporter brings a massive fleet of Daxamite ships to conquer Earth and transform it into the "New Daxam". Rhea then teleports herself, Mon-El, and Lena to her ship.
    Liked that it was a James centric episode as a character he has been mainly fluff and while there is more now that he is not Kara's love interest there is still so much more they can do.

    Interesting mother/daughter mentor/mentee vibe going on between Rhea and Lena.

    Season 2 Episode 21 - "Resist" - May 15, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o....E2.80.9317.29

    The Daxamites launch a full invasion of National City, killing and arresting civilians. They also attack the DEO, but Alex and Winn manage to escape. Mon-El learns that he has to marry Lena in order to unite the people of Earth with Daxam. On Air Force One, Marsdin and Cat contact Rhea and demand their withdrawal, but the Daxamite fleet fires on them. Kara saves Cat, and they discover that Marsdin is an alien, a refugee from the planet Durla. She tasks the DEO with destroying the Daxamite mother ship by a special cannon. Hesitant to do so, Kara turns to Cadmus for a way into the ship. Cat and Winn stage a distraction, inciting a civilian riot against the Daxamites; while Kara, Hank, and Lillian use a Phantom Zone projector to board the ship. Alex and Maggie regain control of the cannon, while the Luthors escape and disable the projector. Having predicted it, Supergirl is able to send Mon-El to safety and goes to confront Rhea, who reveals that she has taken control of Superman and has him attack Kara.
    I may be confused but I was under the impression that the President was a White Martian but she represents herself as from the planer Durla.

    Glad to see Kara and Winn colluding to put one over Cyborg ... gaining control over the Phantom Zone projector when needed, however Alex could have started firing on the Daxamite fleet and not the main ship.

    Well, the next episode is the season finale.

    Season 2 Episode 22 - "Nevertheless, She Persisted" - May 22, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o....E2.80.9317.29

    It is revealed that Rhea used Silver Kryptonite to manipulate Kal's senses, showing Kara as General Zod. Kara eventually overpowers Kal and takes him to the Fortress, where a recovered Kal finds a way to end the war. Kara challenges Rhea to Dakkam Ur, an ancient rite in which two leaders duel and the loser concedes the war, accepted by Rhea. Lillian helps Lena build a device capable of dispersing lead, which is lethal to Daxamites, including Mon-El. Kara tells the DEO to use the device if she loses. During the duel, Rhea resumes the invasion. J'onn wakes up and joins the battle. M'gann returns with other benevolent White Martians, who engage Daxamites. With no chance against the invasion, Kara launches the device, killing Rhea and forcing the fleet to leave. Before Mon-El can succumb, Kara boards him in a pod and sends him away from the Earth. Cat reassumes her position in CatCo; and Alex asks Maggie to marry her. In deep space, Mon-El's pod is drawn into a wormhole. In flashbacks to the destruction of Krypton, an unknown faction sends another infant to the Earth in order to "reign".
    Decent season finale. Liked that they showed Rhea dying and that heroes have to make hard decisions. They did the set up for Mon-el traveling into the future nicely then totally surprised me with showing another baby being saved from Krypton but the Skull House emblem speaks volumes that this child may be E V I L ! Nice touch seeing White Martians fighting on the same side as humans.
