SUPERGIRL: “Nevertheless, She Persisted” Season Two Finale RECAP
Season Two of Supergirl has come to an emotional end for some as a new mystery reveals comes to light at the end. Warning, spoilers ahead…
Superman who’s under the influence of silver kryptonite fights Supergirl whom he believes to be General Zod. After a pretty epic battle, Supergirl overpowers and defeats her cousin. She then takes him back to the Fortress of Solitude to recover, regroup and find a way to defeat Rhea and her Daxamite army. The only solution Kara comes up with is to challenge Rhea to ancient Daxam rite called Dakkam where the two would battle each other for the rights of the Earth. Rhea accepted as Mon-El tries to talk Kara out of it. With the fate of the Earth up for grabs, the Lillian and Lena Luthor device a plan to help Superman and Supergirl defeat Rhea by dispensing lead into the atmosphere that is lethal to the Daxam’s, including Mon-El.
Rhea and Supergirl have their showdown and Supergirl gets the early edge but Rhea doesn’t fight fair as she continues the invasion. J’onn J’onzz wakes up from his injuries and is joined by the returning M’gann and an army of White Martians to protect the Earth from the Daxamites. Seeing no other choice to defeat Rhea, Supergirl makes the painful decision to release the toxins. Rhea dies, and the Daxamites flee into outer space. In order to save Mon-El from the same fate of his mother, Kara places him in a pod and tearfully sends him away.
While in deep space, Mon-El’s pod is drawn into a black hole and his pod disappears. The closing moments of season two shifted 35 years earlier to the day Krypton died. We see when both Kal-El and Kara were sent to Earth. But there was a third child, an unknown child also sent whose purpose is to “reign”. Let the speculation begin.
This sophomoric season certainly had its ups and downs. The Cadmus story line that started the season should have been handled better as it had great potential and Lillian Luthor is a force to be reckon with as well as Lena. Let’s hope for more of her in season three. Speaking of which, Supergirl returns for a third season this Fall.
May the Dork be with you,
