Boy, what has Supergirl been without Cat Grant / Calista Flockhart? The “Queen of all Media” has had a noticeable absence since her departure in Season 2 Episode 2, and while James has apparently done a great job at running CatCo (who knows, though, we haven’t seen much of him this season either…) it’s time for the Queen to take her throne back.
According to TV Line, Calista Flockhart (Cat Grant) will be back for the final two episodes of Season 2. Unfortunately, her return to Supergirl is probably just going to be a quick visit back to National City to check on her company and make sure her prodigy is doing an excellent job as a reporter. The disgrace she will feel once finding out Kara went off and blogged her own story though. Yikes.
Supergirl and Mon-El reunited on The Flash Season 3 Episode 17, “Duet,” where his kiss brought Kara out of the Music Meister’s musical coma. Their reunion came with a cost: Kara’s life was suddenly placed in the hands of alien bounty hunters, who wanted her dead for a reward. Who hired these hunters? Who wants Kara dead?
On Supergirl Season 2 Episode 17, “Distant Sun,” Kara’s life is given a bounty, and the culprit behind this is none other than her boyfriend’s mother: Rhea of Daxam. The Queen wants Kara dead so her son will return, willingly, to lead the life his parents want him to as the next King of Daxam to bring their people back together under new leadership.
With Mon-El’s true background revealed after his parents showed up on Earth, his relationship with Kara is on the rocks. While he’s set on staying with Kara, they’re willing to do anything to bring Mon-El back with them and make him the King of Daxam to reunite their people.
On Supergirl Season 2 Episode 17, “Distant Sun,” Kara is forced to defend herself when a bounty is put on her head. The question is, who put out the bounty? Was it Lillian Luthor trying to get the aliens of National City to take out Cadmus’ biggest threat for them? Or could it have been Mon-El’s parents, who see that she’s the main thing tying him to Earth and keeping him from returning to Daxam.
Barry (Grant Gustin) and team are surprised when Mon-El (guest star Chris Wood) and Hank Henshaw (guest star David Harewood) arrive on their Earth carrying a comatose Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) who was whammied by the Music Meister (guest star Darren Criss). Unable to wake her up, they turn to Team Flash to save her. However, the Music Meister surprises The Flash and puts him in a similar coma, one that Team Flash can’t cure. Kara and Barry wake up without their powers in an alternate reality where life is like a musical and the only way to escape is by following the script, complete with singing and dancing, to the end.
The Flash Season 3 Episode 17, “Duet,” was a very fun crossover with Supergirl that had much more story and character development than I was expecting. It took a break from their main plots and delved into Barry and Kara’s current relationship problems. In between that, we got a really good superhero team-up that makes me wish Kara and Jonn were in the main Arrow-verse.
Mon-El’s lies finally caught up to him, while Winn and Lyra broke into a museum, and someone was framed for a crime they didn’t commit. Meanwhile, one couple broke up, but I suspect it isn’t the last we’ve seen of them.
On Supergirl Season 2 Episode 16, “Star-Crossed,” the appearance of the Daxamite Royal Family brought Mon-El’s life into question, and all of the lies he’s been building up this season in an effort to woo Kara shattered around him, leaving our leading lady a bit heartbroken.
When Supergirl premiered, the relationship between Kara Danvers and Cat Grant was tense, but it brought a beautiful light to the mentor/student relationship. Not only did Cat inspire Kara Danvers, but she helped Kara become Supergirl and save the city, so really, don’t we owe everything to her?
Cat Grant was a force to be reckoned with, and since her abrupt departure in the early episodes of Season 2 (due to Calista Flockhart’s contract negotiations that maintained she would only be a series regular if production was kept in Los Angeles), the series hasn’t been the same. Something is missing, and the writers haven’t been able to fill that void.
DARREN CRISS (“GLEE”) GUEST STARS AS THE MUSIC MEISTER IN THE FLASH AND SUPERGIRL MUSICAL CROSSOVER – Barry (Grant Gustin) and team are surprised when Mon-El (guest star Chris Wood) and Hank Henshaw (guest star David Harewood) arrive on their Earth carrying a comatose Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) who was whammied by the Music Meister (guest star Darren Criss). Unable to wake her up, they turn to Team Flash to save her. However, the Music Meister surprises The Flash and puts him in a similar coma, one that Team Flash can’t cure. Kara and Barry wake up without their powers in an alternate reality where life is like a musical and the only way to escape is by following the script, complete with singing and dancing, to the end.
The Flash Season 3 Episode 17, “Duet,” features the long anticipated reunion of Glee actors Grant Gustin, Melissa Benoist and Darren Criss in another crossover of The Flash and Supergirl.
After Jeremiah’s betrayal, Alex is put on the spot when J’onn tricks her into revealing that she would go to Jeremiah’s aid if he asked, while Kara is put in a tough situation at work when Snapper refuses to run her article about the alien registry getting into Cadmus’ hands.
On Supergirl Season 2 Episode 15, “Exodus,” the alien registry being stolen by Cadmus puts the lives of hundreds in the hands of the DEO and Supergirl. Trying to prevent more kidnappings, Kara attempts to publish an article about the leak at CatCo, but Snapper refuses, so she has to take matters into her own hands.
Jeremiah Danvers returned home on ‘Supergirl’ after a mission to stop Cadmus from doing something led to his unexpected recovery. For once, all of our favorite characters were clueless and were just celebrating his return, except one: Mon-El. Yes, for one Mon-El was the brains of the episode, and let’s hope this never happens again.
On Supergirl Season 2 Episode 14, “Homecoming,” the revelation that Jeremiah Danvers is alive and working for Cadmus shook the team to their core. After such a deep betrayal, and the relationship strife that the suspicion created between the characters, they’re going to have a hard time ever getting back to a place where they can fully trust anyone.
After Lillian Luthor’s arrest when she attempted to release the Medusa virus, it was only a matter of time before Lena was dragged into her mother’s mess again. Not only did her mother frame her for a crime to get her put in prison, she revealed a long-hidden secret in the Luthor family: Lena is actually the product of her father’s affair with another woman.
On Supergirl Season 2 Episode 12, “Luthors,” a prison break causes tension between Kara and James, while Cadmus’ leader Lillian Luthor escapes out onto the streets with Metallo, her anti-alien boy toy.
