This week's episode of Supergirl was the best episode of the entire series. Not "recently," not of the season, but of the whole show. Don't agree? I will fight you.

Also, how amazing was it to see Calista Flockhart, Lynda Carter, and Teri Hatcher having an Olympic-level snark-off? SO amazing, that's how. Welcome to Season 2, Episode 21, "Resist."

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 19, “Alex!”
