We need to talk about Supergirl Season 2

I was worried about Supergirl season 2. Mostly because Calista Flockhart left and the idea of Supergirl without Cat Grant sounded preposterous. And also, because the show’s move in network and location might spell doom. I lived through the WB/UPN merger into The CW, I saw what happened to shows I loved. Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars both lost their identity in that transition. One Tree Hill as well, but I think we’ve covered that.

I shouldn’t have been worried. The show has done a number of things to make sure that it stays afloat and after last night’s episode, I kind of can’t believe that it’s done as well as it has. The introduction of new characters (Mon-El, M’gann M’Orzz and Lena Luthor) have filled in the Cat shaped hole (it does take all three to do it, which is saying something.) and the coming out narrative for Alex Danvers has been beautifully and lovingly handled.

I’m less thrilled about James Olsen’s decision to become Guardian, though love what it’s done for Winn’s storyline, which was getting bogged down a bit into what I call, “Caitlin land” where they get nothing to do on their own.

Next week Kara heads over to Earth-1. (What number is Kara’s earth? 3? Can someone tell me this.) And I can barely contain my excitement. Almost as excited as I was when we learned that Batman is almost certainly a thing on Kara’s earth.

See, while Kara was denouncing Guardian she mentioned a vigilante that Clark once worked with, who had, “a lot of gadgets and a lot of issues.” That’s the only one person who that could be right?

I mean right????

You should understand, I’m less concerned about Batman himself interacting with Kara as I am about others who are related to him. You know, ex sidekicks. One in particular, and maybe not the one you think.

yessss

Very important.

Now, I understand that Kara of Supergirl and Kara of The New 52 are like, not even a little bit the same. And actually, TV Kara would fit better with Dick or Tim than Jason, but ever since this issue of Supergirl came out 2 years ago, I’ve been fixated on these two together.

And it could theoretically happen, now! I mean, I know just theoretically, because apparently The CW isn’t allowed to touch Bat characters, but hey, a girl can dream right?
