After reading the recap of Season 1-3 of Supergirl that I recently posted, and from each of the 65 episodes, would you blame Kara Danvers if she felt a bit weary and out of sorts? After all, she’s been betrayed by her aunt and uncle, lost said aunt (because Alex killed her!), lost Mon-El twice (once to time travel, and twice to time travel as well- this time more permanent!), lost her friend Winn (a conscious decision to travel to the future!), and is currently walking on thin ice with her friend Lena Luthor (whom distrusts Supergirl more and more, and is still none the wiser to Kara and the Super being one and the same!). She hasn’t been backed up by Superman in any of her fights, and her last nemesis actually turned out to be a friend with a split personality, who left with her daughter for a fresh start. Does that sum up all of where Kara is at in the beginning of Season 4? Come join me for a bit as I discuss my initial thoughts of the season.
