Supergirl 2.21 ‘Resist’

We’re almost to the end of season two and the volume has officially been turned up for the CW’s Supergirl! National City is under full attack by the Daxamite army under Queen Rhea. The streets are rife with fear as her soldiers rip through the streets, the police department and eventually the DEO itself.

But not everything is rainbows and bacon as a bounty was set on Kara’s head. Who is behind such a thing? Surely not Mon-El’s parents, who were so supportive of his decision to stay on Earth? If it existed, the previous sentence would be written in a sarcasm font.  But hey, with the presence of Daxam royalty comes more Teri Hatcher…
