- So, Kara didn’t tell Nia what William was up to? And Alex just let William walk right into the DEO?

- “Possessed by Spiders” Brainy was kinda cool!

I also love that he was allowed to be smart and figure things out.

- Why is Kara getting beat up so much this season?

- Need to see a Martian's lost memories? Need to stop a tsunami? Nia's got a power for that!

Need someone named "DREAMER" to have a precog dream about THE BIGGEST CRISIS EVER TO AFFECT THE MULTIVERSE? Well, that's apparently the one thing she CAN'T do.

- Oh look. Lena can now incept Malefic. I’m sure this will end well…

I liked possessed Brainy, although I suspect they only had it to 1. Give him something to do because he was barely utilized & 2. Have something interesting to feature Jesse's acting skills. He's very good at going all weird & really selling it.

I did find it hard to believe that Brainy would willingly allow an alien to take over his body even with all of the mental protections he had in place. It just seems to fly in the face of his previous fears about losing control & having the evil of his ancestors take over. This would be rather similar IMO. It still was a very cool scene though. Camera angles were rather weird and jarring- not my favorite technique.

Once again I had to force myself to suspend disbelief about the bad science on the show with the gun being able to fire something as hot as the sun & staying intact & not hurting the wielder. Then there's the ice cap thing-- It would have sublimated the ice, not melted it. If the molecules even remained intact it would have created steam.

I like that we had a moment with Nia being concerned about Kelly.

I actually like that Lena tricked J'onn's brother to get his powers. I'm surprised he didn't just use his powers on her (unless she was using some sort of dampener that prevented the powers from working on her).

I could tell from the moment I saw the facial hair in the flashback & saw the 4-"armed" dude that it was the same person.

It's starting to look like Andrea isn't evil-- just shallow-- & that she doesn't really want to be involved with the whole Leviathon thing. I'm guessing the older woman is her mother or grandmother, but she could be unrelated.

Even though the reporter dude (I know his name but am blanking on it) turned out to not be evil, there's still something I don't like about him. I can't put my finger on it. I don't know if it's the writing or the acting, but something about him seems over-the-top.

I hope that Kelly isn't going to break up with Alex over worrying about her putting her life on the line & causing Kelly stress.

I'm also hoping that Dreamer will start to get some flashes of Crisis & say something about it to the team.

I like the actor who is playing the human form of J'onn's brother. I've seen him somewhere before but can't seem to place him.

I liked the scenes with Kara & J'onn. I was never a big fan of Supergirl (or any of the Superfriends) or of Martian Manhunter in the comic books but I really like them both on this show.

I loved Kara's red dress at the beginning of the episode.

That's Phil Lamarr. He was an original cast member of the late Saturday night FOX show ''Mad TV''. He's had lots of voice-overs in animated shows & video games as well.

I guess I should have expected Roar to be ''Russell''. I'm not a shipper of Alex & Kelly, so don't mind if they breakup or not.
