- Check out the bright new colourful logo!

- Hey, Kal-el is visiting Auntie Alura on Argo! Glad that it's still around and hasn't been forgotten about. Hopefully we'll get more scenes with Kara and her mom.

- Nice to hear that Sam and Ruby are doing okay

- So the alien bar doubles as a community center?

- Ahh, Brainy. Love him. I really like that he’s using his AI to hack into tech like the cuffs around Kara’s ankles… but shouldn't he be able to hack into computers and WiFi/internet remotely without having to actually type anything into a computer/tablet first?

I mean, we did see a little bit of that, but it should be a constant thing. I imagine his AI core works faster than a regular computer would.

- Brainy and Alex BROTP? I’m here for it. I figured she’d be upset he wasn’t Winn, and I was right. Glad to see these two had a little moment of bonding at the end (he misses his friends too. Awwww…).

Can’t wait until Brainy gets his own clothing style though. Winn’s style just doesn’t suit him.

- I like that Brainy jumped into action when needed (and he used the Flight ring!), then returned to being Kara's “man in the van” as required. I hope this will be indicative of their interactions this season (with a little more personal banter as the season progresses, of course).

Question: Lena is selling the personal image inducers… but didn’t Brainy create those (at least, the one he uses)? Or is his a more advanced version than whatever Lena put on the market?

On a side note: When Brainy flew off to help Kara, did he change into his Legion uniform mid-flight? That takes some skill...

Supergirl: Brainy!
Brainy (looking around dramatically): It is I!
Me: Extra much?

- Nia is so cute… but stand up for your story, girl! C’mon.

- Kara being an A+ mentor to Nia was great! I look forward to seeing more of that.

- J’onn, I love you.... but you're being a little TOO zen right now.

- I’m going to take Kara sticking up for Brainy to Alex as a KaraDox hint… even if it’s not, because Kara/Brainy are really cute in the comics, and I need to see that on this show eventually (I’m willing to wait).

- Alex’s suit has some kinda neat little force-field thing she can put over bombs? Cool!

- Oh crap. President Wonder Woman just got outed.

- Evil!Supergirl is drilling through the Earth. That can’t be leading to anything good…

All in all, a great first episode! I’m really looking forward to this season.

Loved the episode.

Loved the new character Nia. I can't wait to see more of her and her friendship with Kara.

I wasn't able to watch the finale of Season 3, but went ahead and watched the Season 4 premiere anyway, and I liked it a lot.

The callbacks to Season 2 with both Cadmus and Lillian (whom I had no idea was returning) were a nice way to introduce both the season's "Earth First" narrative and Agent Liberty, while also factoring into what could end up being a interesting new source of internal conflict for Lena if it's followed through on.

Brainy's conflict with Alex was both well-written and hilarious, and really gave both Chyler Leigh and Jesse Rath an opportunity to show off their range as actors; it also led to a really great "Supersisters" bonding scene with Alex and Kara.

Speaking of Kara, I loved everything about her story this episode, from her global exploits as Supergirl to her mentoring of Nia (who is amazing, I might add) to the tension between her and J'onn, and am really interested to see how they interact going forward with J'onn taking on a more pacifistic 'activist' role.

My only real complaints are that they kind of tacked on the appearance of "Red Daughter" and didn't give President Marsdin's exposure the focus it needed, but we'll see what, if anything, comes of those things in "Fallout".

Overall, I thought this was a very strong season premiere that set the table for some very intriguing storylines going forward on both a large and small scale, and I can't wait to see where all of this leads.

Brainy is an odd character I think. Remember when he warned Kara about something in this episode, but it was too late yet he said something anyway? It was awkward. Anyway the big news on this episode to me was that the President is an alien posing as a human I believe. That's fine, but it would've been funnier I think if the President on here was an alien posing as Trump.

They actually revealed the alien President in Season 2 to Alex, Winn, and Kara. They found out at the end of that season, and Cat Grant happened to be there and found out as well (she didn't seem fazed by it though ).

So they all already knew? Oops Forgot about that, though it had been a while since I've seen ''Supergirl'', since I don't rewatch episodes usually if it all of it.

Cat wasn't fazed by Marsdin's alien nature because she'd accidentally uncovered it years earlier when she and Marsdin were college roommates but had dismissed it as a hallucination brought on by the consumption of Pot brownies.

J'onn is also aware that Marsdin is an alien, and vice versa.
