Kate is alive and brainwashed, hopefully they focus on that more in the coming episodes. It is going to mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people.
Black Lightning - Episode 4.10 - The Book of Reunification: Chapter One
Supergirl - Episode 6.06 - Prom Again
I am a sucker for time travel. These two Supergirl episodes did it very well. They even made it even more complicated by going back into the time loop of themselves. It was amazing. These episodes, even though they are missing most of the main cast, were some of my favorite the show has done.
The younger cast did wonderful jobs capturing the essence of their older counterparts. To the point where you didn't even really miss the cast because it felt like they were there.
These didn't feel like bottle episodes either, there was a point to them. They will play into the larger narrative of things, and that is exciting. That means they will be constantly referred back to, possibly even as a changing point for stuff. So I am glad these episodes did well.
