Supergirl Season 2, Episode 14 Synopsis: “Homecoming”


This week on Supergirl, Jeremiah Danvers escapes from Cadmus and returns to his family.

Last week on Supergirl‘s “Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk” episode, romance was in the air for every character. Yeah, it was a rather painful hour—and one that didn’t need to be experienced. If it was aimed to be a Valentine’s special, it was already a week late, so they really should’ve just forgotten about it.

More from TV

Personally, I was excited at the prospect of seeing the Imp from the 5th Dimension, but Supergirl’s interpretation of the character was not something I want to see repeated. Hey, maybe future episodes will retcon this storyline and show his form as being malleable, wherein he used the handsome-man-guise in an effort to woo Kara. But for what reason? Maybe he just wanted to anger Superman by being in-laws with the Man of Steel.

The episode was on romance overload with every character. Alex wanted to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but Maggie didn’t, citing some preteen trauma. Winn, for some reason, had an alien tough-girl admirer. And Mon-El was jealous of Mr. Mxyzptlk’s powers, along with wanting to protect Kara’s honor.

In the end, Kara tricked the imp into writing his name backwards as the code to stop the Fortress of Solitude from self-destructing. However, there was a big plothole in that logic. Even though the Fortress was sealed, Mr. Mxyzptlk could’ve just transported both him and Kara out. I had a strong feeling that the writers were already phoning it in at this point.

This week, Supergirl gets back to business with guest star Dean Cain playing the role of Jeremiah Danvers. The last time we saw him, he helped Kara escape, but remained at Cadmus. This newest episode sees the Danvers patriarch escape from his enemies, but all seems too good to be true. Here’s the official synopsis:


"DEAN CAIN RETURNS – When Jeremiah Danvers (guest star Dean Cain) is rescued from Cadmus, Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Kara (Melissa Benoist) are thrilled to have their father back. The Danvers arrange a family dinner to celebrate but things go awry when a suspicious Mon-El (Chris Wood) starts to question Jeremiah about his sudden return."
