Supergirl - Episode 6.05 - Prom Night
This episode didn't have Melissa Benoist in it at all, but still had a whole lot of Kara. With Brainy and Nia time traveling back to 2009, we got high school versions of her, and younger versions of Alex and even Cat Grant.
It felt like a weird episode, but a way to film more than one episode at once. If there is an episode in the future without Brainy and Nia in it much, that could be why.
With as many rules as time travel has, this episode still had stakes, and was still a lot of fun. The humor carried it, but so did the drama and emotion. It is everything you want from a great episode of Supergirl, just without much of the core cast.
The show doesn't do 2 parters very often, but they are always spectacles when they do. Last time they did it, Winn returned. So for this to do it, there is something important here. Especially for them to do it with it being the last season and having limited time.
I really enjoyed this episode. Hopefully part 2 sticks the landing next week.
