Supergirl - Back From the Future (Part One)

Although both the show and Brainy (Jesse Rath) waffle a bit over the recent change to his character there's certainly an improvement over how the show has begun using the Legionnaire from the future. The episode offers the return of Jeremy Jordan reprising his role of Winn Schott and as an crazier version from a parallel Earth who Winn returns from the future to stop from destroying his timeline. Jordan fits in easily here, particularly in his individual scenes with both Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Nia (Nicole Maines), the later of whom he encourages by offering a glimpse of the hero she (and her descendants) will become.

Along with providing a reason for the actor's return, luring Winn back from the future by using his doppelganger serves the purpose of providing Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) with information about Leviathan as well as getting the necesary data for Lena (Katie McGrath) to continue here experiments, both of which appear to be big pieces of the final-half the season. Although the capture of the new Toyman appears to wrap things up, the final scene suggests there may be more the story as Winn may not be returning home just yet.
