Supergirl 2.22 ‘Nevertheless, She Persisted’

Oh my Zod! We did it! This is it for season two of Supergirl and wow was this one chock-full of heroic goodness. As the Daxamite threat intensified, we were all waiting with baited breath as to why Superman attacked his cousin.

So, filling in temporarily for our fearless leader, here are my Top 5 Moments from Supergirl. Don’t forget to share yours in the comments! 5.) The New Girl I don’t like Siobhan. In fact, I┬ákind of hate her. And that’s okay, because you’re supposed to. She’s all the catty, manipulative, condescending parts of Cat Grant without any of the brilliant, feminist,…
