Last week on Supergirl, Lena Luthor dealt with her toxic mom and Kara proved once again that always being right can become a little grating if you’re whiny about it. Good thing we have a delayed Valentine’s episode that’s pretty much DC Comics mainstay Mr. Mxyzptlk being Q to Kara’s Picard. Yes, that would make Mon-El the Riker in this scenario.
Mxyzptlk, for you non-comic nerds out there, is an omnipotent imp from the Fifth Dimension who pops up every so often to make Superman’s life a living hell. Usually this involves Mxy doing something obnoxious, like turning Superman into a dog, or commenting on DC editorial policy. C’mon man, that’s Ambush Bug’s shtick! Here he appears to be a creepy stalker who’s jealous of the budding relationship between Kara and Mon-El, although if Mxy is still the Mxy we know and barely tolerate, there’s more going on here than meets the eye.
Meanwhile, it appears a major subplot will be that Maggie and Alex don’t have a great Valentine’s Day, which we also assume there will be a little more to, especially since an alien appears to be running around. Hey, nothing says love like the gift of a citywide manhunt, right? We’ll find out tonight at 8pm EST on the CW. Join us, won’t you?
