It’s a super life was the 100th episode of Supergirl and I’m really happy they made it a special one.
One of the biggest stories since the beginning of the show has been Kara not telling Lena about her secret identity. This made the perfect storyline line to explore in the 100th episode.
Last weeks episode gave us the return of Mr Mxyzptlk, although with a different actor which is brushed aside early on. Thomas Lennon was the actor this time round and what a fantastic job he did. As a well known actor for his character performances it was a genius piece of casting, and as a fan of Reno 911! I was very excited when he arrived.
Mxyzptlk uses his magic to give Kara a glimpse into life had she told Lena her secret earlier in their friendship. I must say this was a genius piece of writing to reminisce on where the show has taken us over the last 100 episodes. Not only did we see parts of early episodes but we got the opportunity to see some of the previous characters like Jimmy Olsen, Ben Lockwood, Mon-El, Sam Arias, Winn Schott and Cat Grant.
This episode did nothing for the ongoing series stories but it didn’t bother me in the slightest. A stand alone special episode to celebrate 100 episodes was executed to perfection.
