The parasites that Agent Liberty uses to mind control aliens to do his bidding resemble the Ceti eels that Khan uses to control Captain Terrell and Commander Chekov as pawns in his plan of revenge against Captain Kirk in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982).

At the fair there is a boy that won and is holding a Beebo toy. Beebo was first seen in Legends of Tomorrow season 3 episode 9, Beebo The God Of War. Beebo has become an inside joke of the arrowverse.

Ahimsa means harmlessness of thought, speech, and action, or nonviolence, in Sanskrit, and is an essential religious principle of Jainism and aspect of nonviolent resistance

David Ajala (Manchester Black) was in the DC movie The Dark Knight (2008) as a bounty hunter.

In the DC comics, Lauren Haley is Caucasian and a lieutenant in the Air Force, and an associate of Wonder Woman.

April Parker Jones (Col. Lauren Haley) had a minor role in the Marvel movie, Spider Man 3 (2007) .

Manchester Black first appeared in 2001 as an antihero and later super villain in DC's Superman comics.

While in the protective suit, Brainiac 5 says to Supergirl "If you're in your Mind Palace, say Hi to 'Streaky' for me. In the original DC comics, Supergirl had an orange cat with white lightning bolts on its sides called Streaky! This further more referring to when he first saw Streaky in Kara's mind a season prior.

In the DC comics, Manchester Black is a leader of the Elite, a superhero team with questionable morals and methods. In his various appearances he acted as a foil to Superman and an enemy of his, or sometimes as an ally of the Justice League.

Liked Supergirl's protective suit. Yeah, it was a plot device to cover for Melissa Benoist's schedule conflicts, but it is pretty cool looking.

Thought this episode had some nice character interactions. I like Manchester Black and his tragic origin story. Yeah, he doesn't have powers like in the comics, but you never know. They may come later.

The Graves are dead, and I couldn't be happier. They were just poorly written. Nice to see the return of a couple alien villains. The show doesn't reuse characters as much as it can.

I'm interested in seeing how James deals with his exploits being used as pro-human propaganda.


Another amazing episode = more complaints. love the partnership between manchester black and j'onn! also, kara's anti-kryptonite suit looks phenomenal.


Will have to start calling it the Alex Danvers show I guess considering the screen time Supergirl got. Where in hell does she get off yelling at SUPERGIRL for anything? Such fake created drama, along with fake science of trying to remove kryptonite from atmosphere (oh, just think really hard brainy and you and Lena will figure it out, BS) Hmmm, Manchester, is he from England, wouldn't have guessed, sad his girl had to die....this show so inconsistent, playing with these aliens being controlled instead of just shooting them, tripping them with some idiotic motorcycle ? WTH? Crap CG on ye ol merry go round and again Kara getting her butt kicked before, oh magically now we know with no indicators that air is 100% kryptonite free. Less Alex, less Brainy, less fake dilemma with Jimmy (take some damn pictures why don't you instead of standing around like you have a clue ) and MORE SUPERGIRL BEING SUPER... is that too much to ask for?


Its an okay episode. But I don't understand why a military leader would be assigned over the director of a government agency. The director would report to the secretary of probably dhs. So.... Why the intermediary? I suppose they said it in the episode. But whatever reason, it's still dumb. And doesn't make sense. And really takes me out of the episode.


All throughout this episode and the previous two before this one, I have one big question.. When Mercy graves, her brother and Agent Liberty gasses the world with with kryptonite. we see them hurry to rescue Supergirl and get her into this armor.. My question though is what about Superman?? He never even got a small mention on how those in Metropolis were dealing with this issue.. Seems like some poor writing of this episode and the 2 previous to not even mention him at all.. Any other time name-drops are a big part of the Arrowverse series, but I guess we're just left to ponder what happened..
