Supergirl Season 5 Episode 12 Evaluation: Again From the Future — Half Two


Winn Schott is wonderful. Why did he ever go away?

Winn saved the day on Supergirl Season 5 Episode 12, and it was as if he by no means left. He stopped his evil counterpart from killing DEO brokers and gave Kara some wonderful recommendation, though she refused to take it.

Winn was one of the best a part of an episode that did little to maneuver the story ahead and showcased the identical issues our Tremendous Mates have been coping with for months.

Winn’s reconnection along with his father was the strongest story of the hour, and Supergirl might have targeted a bit extra on that as a substitute of over-explaining the tech points that Toyman caused.

Winn’s father, the unique Toyman, has plagued Winn for years. Winn was at all times delicate about him.

Winn was capable of confront his father one final time and get closure for his painful previous.

Winn: It is not Laptop Lad anymore, alright? Any further, it is Toyman.
Kara: Winn, significantly?
Winn: Yeah. You guys once I advised you that I used to be okay being known as Laptop Lad, are you kidding me? No, I hated that! Laptop Lad, no! What? However Toyman, that identify has at all times haunted me. However now after having confronted my father, he advised me that I used to be higher than him. And he was proper. So I will reclaim that identify and make it stand for good. Hey, it is just like the Physician stated, “The long run is no matter you need, so make it a superb one.”
Kara: Good, Doc Brown.

It was a ravishing second when his father advised him he was one of the best a part of him, that he was higher than him, as a result of it is true.

Winn is an awfully good one who deserved recognition from the person who made his life fairly troublesome. After he obtained that, he was capable of return to the long run with rather less weight on his shoulders.

Winn returned to the long run, and when you can not help however be completely happy that he is lastly completely happy, it’s unhappy to see him go.

He has at all times been a fantastic addition to the Supergirl solid, and his friendship with Kara is a spotlight of the present.

Winn is an authentic Tremendous Pal and was one of many predominant components of what made the present nice on its earlier seasons.

If solely there was a manner for Winn to convey his household to Nationwide Metropolis and combat alongside Supergirl eternally. Something is feasible. Is that wishful pondering,  or am I setting myself up for disappointment?

Whereas Winn was coming to phrases along with his father, Kara was struggling over whether or not or to not exit with William.

After many episodes with tiny hints at a romance between the 2 reporters (many hints of which have been nullified throughout Disaster), William lastly requested Kara on a date. She stated no.

And though it was solely as a result of their relationship began off on a lie and he or she has been eternally traumatized by Lena’s emotions of betrayal, it was a superb factor she rejected him.

Winn: Hey Tremendous…Kara.
Kara: Mmhm?
Winn: She is tremendous.
William: Certain.

Kara and William give off main mates vibes and have nearly zero chemistry. Once we ought to have been smiling from ear to ear as they have been singing karaoke, there was solely cringing.

They’re certain to revisit their relationship sooner or later, however we actually hope that Supergirl lets it relaxation because the sparks are simply not there.

It’s undoubtedly a foul signal when your brother, who’s a sociopath and a assassin, tells you that he’s pleased with you. Should not that make you second guess what you might be doing?

Lena was again to making an attempt to trick Andrea to get what she wished, though she disguised her deception as making an attempt to assist the world.

Sure, Lena means effectively, however she does factor on the expense of injuring others.

There are at all times two varieties of people that wish to assist the world — those who do the best factor for the flawed causes and those who do the flawed factor for the best causes.

Lena has had tunnel imaginative and prescient all through Supergirl Season 5. Her emotions of betrayal have been clouding her judgement and have made her assume that what she is doing is correct.

It might have been an attention-grabbing storyline, however there was no payoff but, and we’re greater than midway by the season.

Whereas Lena has not accomplished something horrible to additional her algorithm that may assist “repair individuals,” all indicators have been pointing to it for some time now, and but, nothing.

Lex: Oh Lena, I’m impressed. Sabotaging your buddy to get what you need.
Lena: To not get what I would like, for the great of humanity!
Lex: In fact, however that’s precisely the type of pondering we’ll have to defeat Leviathan. Your massive brother is pleased with you.

It’s nearly as if they should get it out of the best way to maneuver ahead and develop the story as a result of Lena has been doing the identical factor for ages now.

Kara and Lena have been one of many strongest friendships on Supergirl, and there’s no have to spend a complete season with them aside, particularly when a larger menace looms.

It’s time for them to get a transfer on and actually begin addressing the problems between the 2 as a substitute of simply dancing round them.

Leviathan continues to be talked about in passing with no actual exploration of who they’re or what they need.

For a secret group who was meant to be the massive dangerous of this season, little is understood about them.

It’s kind of disappointing particularly since in one of many cliffhangers on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 22, they have been talked about for the primary time, and comedian e book followers in all places rejoiced.

A Lex who cares in regards to the emotional state of others, this actually is a complete new world.


The event of the villains this season, moreover that of Lex Luthor who has at all times been a pleasure to observe, has been minimal and unsatisfying.

Let’s simply hope {that a} journey down reminiscence lane with Mr. Mxyzptlk on the present’s 100th episode will reawaken what as soon as made Supergirl a implausible superhero present.

What did you assume Supergirl Fanatics?

Do you want Winn might keep eternally? Are you sick of the shortage of nice villains this season? Additionally, the place was Dreamer?

She has been absent from too many episodes this season.

Let me know within the feedback, and don’t forget which you can watch Supergirl online proper right here on TV Fanatic!

Supergirl airs on Sundays at 9/8c on The CW.
