Supergirl 2.18 ‘Ace Reporter’ Top 5

And we’re back! An entire month has basically passed since we were last able to visit National City and our hero, Supergirl! The last episode, ‘Distant Sun’, did not leave us all bereft of questions. Would Queen Rhea immediately show up and cause trouble? Would Mon-El continue to annoy me? And, was that promo where Lena Luthor sees that Kara is Supergirl a touch misleading? Maybe!
