- Winn’s Legion name is “Computer Lad”???

- Brainy’s technopathy should have been able to destroy the “Toyman” virus… if the writers would remember they gave him that power in the first place.

- I’m glad Winn still trusts Brainy

- I guess Lena doesn’t have Myriad in this new reality

- Even Winn thinks Lena’s reaction to Kara’s secret was over the top. Thank you, Winn.

- I loved Brainy doing the Superman/Supergirl “rip open your shirt and show off your supersuit” move.

- Did… did Brainy just yell “Leroy Jenkins” before kicking robot ass? WHY?

- After Brainy did his awesome gymnastics routine vs the Lexo-suits, where did he disappear to?

- So Brainy become “Director Brainiac 5”, just like his female doppelganger. That's kind of interesting....

I enjoyed this episode. I really liked the lighting and camera techniques. The way the lights reflected in Brainy's eyes was cool.

Leeroy Jenkins is a reference to a viral moment from World of Warcraft gameplay. During a raid, one of the players shouted his own name (Leeroy Jenkins obviously) and rushed in to the room to pull the attention of all of the monsters. It was called "getting aggro". Although, in the game his character died and the entire raid wiped.

I really loved all the flips and stuff Brainy did, but did they forget that he can fly?

I wish they would remember that he's a technopath. He should have been able to just take over everything and override Toyman, but they wanted to give Winn something. If they'd had some plausible excuse as to why Brainy couldn't do it, it would have been better.

Director Dox will be interesting to see.

I truly hope that Brainy had the foresight to modify the Toyman's code to have some sort of failsafe to stop Lex from using it to cause harm.

I know the reference It was just so random. That viral video is 15 years old

Y'know, I should have remembered how long ago it was considering Blizzard sent me a statue on like the 10th anniversary for having played since the beginning & I got the anniversary gifts in the ingame mail system recently but it makes me feel old. LOL.

It was my favorite moment of the episode as well.

Out of curiosity, did Winn typically react in an over-the-top fashion or just overreact to things on the show? I didn't start watching until the episodes with Brainy (since I was a huge Legion/Brainiac 5 fan & didn't even know Monel was on the show).

Lena's behavior reminds me a lot of her Katie's performance as Morgana on the 'Merlin' series. Although, hopefully this show will never go as sour as that show did in the final season. I swear, season 5 of that show was just a big middle finger to the fans & the finale was a double flip-off, a thumb-bite, with spit in the face.

Well, I certainly forgot that he could fly & I don't remember him doing that, but maybe it's happened in an episode & it just didn't stick with me. How did you like Kara & her friend singing ''Africa'' by Toto together? It was awkward I thought, but their singing terrible to me.
