Reign Aims For Ruby In A Preview Of Next Week’s Supergirl

by Erik Amaya

 

Now with the full power of the three Worldkillers at her disposal, Reign (Odette Annable) is ready to finish her mission. Well, almost ready as the powerful bond between her host Sam (also Annable) and her daughter Ruby (Emma Tremblay) could become a major vulnerability as Sam’s maternal love keeps her alive inside of Reign. And as this preview of next week’s Supergirl reveals, it will take everyone to stop Reign from finding and killing Ruby.

Also, it seems the Legion’s mission isn’t really over as Reign will presumably become Blight in their harrowing future. Not that they can actually get back to the 31st Century at the moment. I suppose Brainy (Jesse Rath) will have to invent Time Sphere technology to get home. Provided he even wants to at this point now that he’s surrounded by people like Winn (Jeremy Jordan), Lena (Katie McGrath) and Kara (Melissa Benoist).

In fact, after all the make-up weirdness with the character, I can say Rath plays Brainy really well and I would love to see him stay on the show while Mon-El (Chris Wood) and Imra (Amy Jackson) head to the future to confirm the success of their mission.

The show may also be headed in that direction as Brainy had the best moments and the best interactions with the cast in last night’s episode — which I have to admit was the worst of the season. Warming over Mon-El’s relationship with Kara just seems silly at this point and the time spent in that mental projection of the Krypton valley just sucked the life out of everything. It only sparked once the Legion cruiser made its way to the Worldkiller fortress and the characters stated acting like themselves again.

But I guess a quality dip was inevitable at some point as the show ends into its season 3 endgame. I just hope it recovers its momentum soon.

Supergirl airs Mondays on The CW.
