‘Supergirl’s’ Jenna Dewan Tatum: Lucy Lane’s Story Won’t Be “Just a Love Triangle”.

In the wake of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, CBS preempted Lucy Lane’s big introduction episode of the DC Comics drama because of a plot in which Kara (Melissa Benoist) works to stop terrorist attacks all around National City.

SYNOPSIS: Kara’s dual identities are stretched to the limit tonight as she is tasked with babysitting Cat’s son, while also trying to prevent a terrorist from blowing up National City. The network instead swapped in the next episode, “Livewire.” On Monday, viewers will see Lois Lane’s sister get her proper introduction — with an explanation as to why she arrived unexpectedly in National City, as well as more on her rocky romantic history with James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks). So if you noticed any continuity errors involving the love triangle of James/Lucy/Kara or the mistrust Kara and Alex now feel toward Hank Henshaw/the DEO, you can attribute it to the scheduling change.

So let’s hope that none of that happens on the CBS series — though having Winn fail at watching him might have been a fun Easter Egg to that storyline. I definitely was very hopeful they would end up airing it at some point because regardless of my storyline and the introduction of Lucy and going a bit deeper into her as a character, the episode is just really good.

I felt really strongly about this episode being seen because of all the work that went into it with the directing, and story-wise for Kara it’s a really strong episode. Was that just a way for Maxwell Lord to ID Kara in the future and for Cat to deliver yet another feminist lesson, or foreshadowing Carter’s destiny as well?

However, last week’s episode ended with both girls thinking the exact opposite thanks to new information about their father Jeremiah Danvers, who was blackmailed into joining the shady organization in order to protect Kara. It’s all too much — no matter what Cat may say about juggling. (I wasn’t totally thrilled with the breakdown of this unattainable, sexist standard — although it is always cool to see a show interested in feminist issues at all. At least to me. ) When Carter sneaks off to meet Supergirl, Kara has an even harder choice to make: stop a bomb planted at the airport or stop a bomb planted on the high-speed train. They both succeed, but only just, with Kara losing in that sense that she can’t stop terrorist Ethan Knox from detonating the bomb and killing himself.

In “How Does She Do It,” Kara is faced with perhaps her biggest obstacle yet, babysitting Cat Grant’s son Carter, who, much to Kara’s amusement, is a huge Supergirl fanboy. In addition to being super foxy, the brilliant scientist says he chose his path in life because he wants to help people — just like Alex. (Also, have we mentioned that he is a billionaire?

He’s a billionaire.) When the D.E.O. finds evidence that Lord Technologies might be the next target of the terrorist bombings currently going down around National City, Alex gets tasked with protecting Maxwell. This is all thoroughly inconvenient as tonight’s episode also seemed to reveal that Maxwell Lord also happens to be a super-villain and was the force behind the terrorist attacks. He bartered these bombings — and inevitably Ethan’s life — for the life of Ethan’s doctor, who is sick and needs medical care that Ethan himself could not afford. Of course, Lord denies he had anything to do with it, asking why he would want to blow up the building since it contained one of his labs; however, we know better! Apparently the DEO planned for this, and Kara wakes up in a tanning bed-type apparatus, which gives her high concentrations of the sun’s rays to aid in her healing.

At the time, she probably thought this was a hallucination, but I bet this piece of evidence will come up again now that Alex and Kara are suspicious of their DEO boss. I’ve met girls who I wouldn’t particularly normally want to start a friendship with but you just can’t not like them and you end up friends in the end. Meanwhile, Alex tells Kara not to allow James to talk about his girl problems because that will just put her in the phantom zone… errrr… friend zone.
