Features Writer

Supergirl (The CW, 8:00 p.m.) — Kara suffered a pretty devastating blow at the end of season two with the loss of her alien boyfriend Mon-El, so fans will see a much more emotionally closed off Supergirl in the season premiere. While this may help her short-term superheroics, part of the appeal and power of Supergirl is her humanity. Hopefully, the real Kara Danvers will be back to her warm, compassionate self soon.

Lucifer (Fox, 8:00 p.m.) – Lucifer has once again removed his wings, and Linda is worried that he is focusing too much on the cases for some good old fashioned self-care.
