Supergirl Season 2 'Ace Reporter' Review

Episode eighteen focuses primarily on Kara reestablishing her career as a journalist. Her unemployment brings some great moments for Kara as she tries on several attempts to make her own baked goods. 

The friendship between Kara and Lena is one of the most charming as their genuine fondness of one another is compelling but it feels like it won't always be this way. As Lena reunites with an old partner, Jack Spheer, who has created a form of nanobots that can repair and heal wounds, Kara becomes more involved as she discovers the human trials were conducted on Jack, turning him into a swarm of nanobots.

There's strong chemistry between Lena and Jack which makes his demise more emotionally engaging. Once Kara shows Lena the footage of Jack testing the nanobots on himself, this leads her to believe he was the one who killed the human trial patient and the fired company worker.

I felt the revelation of the real culprit, Jack's co-parter in the company, Beth, wasn't justified enough to make sense. She had hardly featured in the episode at all and then suddenly appeared. This caused the conclusion to make less of an impact but as Lena overrode the nanobots, killing Jack in the process to save Supergirl, this does allow for potential conflict between Kara and Lena.

 As Kara comforts Lena's loss, Kara promises that she will always protect her, which is when Lena learns that Kara is Supergirl. Seeing as Lena had to sacrifice Jack to save Supergirl, that provides a strong motivation for her to become revengeful towards her.

Ace Reporter focus on Kara's career and her friendship with Lena feels pivotal to her development as a reporter, opening up further potential threats for Supergirl which may come from the most unlikely of people. The script offers some charming and funny moments and the nanobots prove to be one of the strongest villains the show has produced.
