Supergirl‘s third season has taken some notable departures from previous seasons, most noticeably its darker tone with Kara’s grief after shedding Mon-El. However maybe its most fascinating change is how its slowly increase the villain Reign by introducing her as a seemingly regular Nationwide Metropolis mother named Sam (Odette Annable) who realizes she could also be one thing extra. Over the primary few episodes this season, we’ve seen Sam virtually lose her daughter throughout an badault on Nationwide Metropolis, however in doing so found that she has powers of super-strength. However when she tried to make use of them whereas not in a state of misery, she couldn’t but conjure them.
It’s been a really slow-burn solution to introduce a serious villain, and I actually adore it. It makes Sam / Reign (who’s a Worldkiller) greater than only a Huge Dangerous or a meta who seems out of nowhere and has questionable or in the end unimportant motivations. By making Sam an actual character, it raises the stakes on her eventual heel flip.
For now, Sam is taking up L Corps whereas Lena Luthor dives into working CatCo, which can convey her into Kara’s orbit. It’ll be fascinating to look at her uncover her origins the best way Kara additionally needed to do, however find yourself in very totally different place with them.
Try the costume beneath:
In order for the costume, nicely, it’s giving me very robust Black Siren vibes from Arrow. I’d have preferred to see some extra shade and a extra fascinating design than, principally, a “darkish” model of Supergirl. The masks seems to be fascinating, however since The CW exhibits have so typically given us villains who mirror our heroes visually and narratively, this significantly costume doesn’t actually bounce out for me.
Annable’s debut as Reign is ready to occur later this season (we’re not precisely certain when), however we ought to be seeing extra of her in tonight’s episode, “The Trustworthy.”
Tell us what you concentrate on the brand new costume within the feedback; Supergirl airs Monday nights on The CW.
