THOMAS LENNON RETURNS AS MR. MXYZPTLK - Supergirl and team must stop Nyxly from vanquishing a familiar face from Supergirl’s past - Mr. Mxyzptlk (guest star Thomas Lennon). Mxy returns and explains Nyxly’s dark history to the super team in the best way he knows how - in song form. Meanwhile, Lena visits her mother’s birthplace in Newfoundland, eager to dig into her past but is shocked by the small town’s icy reception towards her.
And so the writers introduce yet another new storyline – Lena getting magic. This, in the same episode with Mxyzptlk and Nyxlygsptlnz battling it out, not to mention Dreamer coming into her own. Amidst a dragon and a giant kitten attacking National City, the biggest WTF moment was discovering everyone in Newfoundland speaks with an Irish accent.
Yes. The gratuitous Irish was weird (and the “Bad Day at Black Rock” stuff was a little over the top (for one thing, if the inn-keeper finds out that the black sheep’s daughter is in town, the rest of the small town will know in a very short time).
Distracting the giant kitten with laser vision was delightful, though.
(P.S. What’s wrong with Mxy’s duplicate plan - the duplicate lasts for a few minutes, and that’s all the time that’s needed)
And, in the event, would have lasted longer than their alt-dupe plan did. And…why did they have Dreamer use an image inducer? Why not just have J’onn shapeshift?
Yeah, I thought that was the highlight of the episode.
[David Ramsey guest stars so the CW finally is motivated enough to make a promo.]
