Supergirl - Back From the Future (Part Two)

"Back From the Future (Part One)" was a fun episode, but there's really no reason why it needed to be stretched into two episodes. "Part One" brought back Jeremy Jordan to deal with an alternate Earth doppelganger. In "Part Two" the vanquised Toyman is found in digital form uploaded to the DEO's intranet taking control of various weapons and computers as it tries to break out into the world. The episode offers Winn a nice hero moment both for the actor and character, even if that ground had already been covered in the previous episode.

Other storylines, which could have easily been B-stories in another episode feature Alex (Chyler Leigh) leaving the DEO, Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) helping Lena (Katie McGrath) with her project by applying a bit of pressure on Leviathan (but whose goals does his plan ultimately serve?), and Brainy (Jesse Rath) continuing to struggle with helping Lex Luthor behind the backs of his friends. We also see Kara (Melissa Benoist) choose not to date again, unable to deal with the lies and deceptions needed to conceal her other identity.
