Supergirl - All About Eve

Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) may not appear in "All About Eve," but the episode deals primarily with the fallout from his escape. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) enlists the help of Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Lena (Katie McGrath) in a hunt for Eve (Andrea Brooks) who they believe can lead them to Lex. The trouble for Supergirl is Lex has already thought of that and uses Eve as bait to lure Supergirl to the time and place of his choosing to enact the next part of his plan. Despite the discovery of Lena's secret experiments, the episode doesn't further the rift between Lena and the Maid of Might as the two find common ground (which is a good thing because Supergirl is going to need all the help she can get). Has Lena's villainous turn been shelved for good this time? Hopefully.

With James "Don't Call Me Jimmy" Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) and J'onn (David Harewood) both struggling to deal with recent events, it appears Supergirl's list of friends is dwindling every day. Both subplots allow each character to struggle with recent trauma, but there's no easy solution for either leaving Supergirl alone. Well... not totally alone, as it appears she does have two allies willing to stick around and search for answers despite Red Daughter's very public attack on the White House following the appeal of the Alien Amnesty Act making Supergirl Public Enemy Number One.
