Supergirl Season 2: Episode 12, Can Kara Trust Lena Luthor? Our criticism
Last night, the American channel The CW broadcast episode 12 of season 2 of Supergirl. Then discover without further delay our review of “Luthors”, as well as the video promo of the next episode.
Since we met Lena Luthor in season 2 of Supergirl , the question arises: can we trust him? We are all familiar with the story between Superman and Lex Luthor and of course we can not help wondering if Kara is going to live the same situation as his cousin with Lena, Lex’s sister . Episode 12 of Supergirl’s season 2 offers us a dive into the universe of Luthor, between manipulation and the quest for power, where we learn a little better to know Lillian and Lena. While Lillian Luthor’s judgment is in full swing, Kara decides to pay a visit to her friend Lena to see how she is experiencing this event. She urges him to go visit him in prison, because Kara, still optimistic, Believes she can still solve the problems Lena has with her mother. Unfortunately, everything will go from bad to worse from there.
If Lillian suddenly appears as a loving and understanding mother, as viewers, one suspects that this sudden reversal is certainly a new manipulation on her part. It is discovered that Lena, although adopted, is a true Luthor since she is the daughter of Lionel and another woman than Lillian. It is for this reason that Lillian has always had trouble creating a connection with her daughter, but she would like to redeem herself now. We can not blame Lena for falling in the panel, after all, she spent her life trying to get the interest of her mother. But then, while this meeting takes place, Metallo receives a small package: kryptonite. He escapes from the court while he is testifying and Lena is incarcerated for complicity because a video of surveillance implies it directly in the escape of Metallo. From there, only Kara believes in Lena’s innocence, other people are far too influenced by the fact that it is a Luthor . Here, it is interesting to see how the series points out the prejudices that one can have about a person because of his family or his origins. For once, it is not Supergirl who judges too fast.

And Kara has ample reason to believe that Lena is innocent since it is discovered later that Lillian has all crafted just to get the help of his daughter. Indeed, she needs Lena’s DNA – a Luthor – to access one of her son Lex’s secret chests, which is full of objects capable of fighting aliens – and mostly Superman and By extension Supergirl . If Kara arrives in time to save Lena from the imminent explosion of Metallo – which was equipped with an unstable synthetic kryptonite – she fails to capture Lillian and the real Hank Henshaw . The episode offers us a beautiful scene between Kara and Lena – the tension was palpable! – But the end makes us doubt on the sincerity of Lena.
Finally, Kara finally accepts the feelings she feels for Mon-El. If we do not know yet if the idea of seeing Kara and Mon-El together is the best solution for the plot, we must admit that they are both pretty cute. Nevertheless, their rapprochement is quickly interrupted by the arrival of a certain Mr. Mxyzptlk who announces to Kara that he likes it! And if we believe the video of Episode 13, which you can see above, this gentleman will be ready to do anything to get the favors of Supergirl. Know that you can already find all you need to know about Mr. Mxyzptlk in Supergirl’s saion 2 , on melty. Anyway, we really liked this episode that puts Lena Luthor and her relationship with Kara back on the stage. One hopes however that the writers will not fall into the trap of making her a “bad girl” just because she is a real Luthor. What did you think of this episode?
