Episode eleven “Strange Visitor from Another Planet” of “Supergirl” focuses on painful past relationships and healing. Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) steps in as an unsolicited middle person between Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) and her estranged son, Adam Foster (Blake Jenner). While Cat appears to be unappreciative of Kara’s interest in her personal life, Adam is more interested in Kara.
An interesting side note is Blake Jenner is the husband of Melissa Benoist. Real life love translated to the small screen, reminiscent of “True Blood’s” Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) and Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton).
A nemesis White Martian’s arrival brings back horrific memories for Hank Henshaw (David Harewood). More of his past is revealed, including what happened to Henshaw’s family on his planet Mars. Henshaw comes close to throwing away his life, but Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh ) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist ) intervene. The Danvers sisters are turning into quite a dynamic duo.
Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan) isn’t dealing well with rejection. Fans should hope he doesn’t develop a peculiar interest in toys. Kara uses time and space to heal their friendship. James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) gets out of the office and back into photo-journalistic fieldwork. The Danvers sisters are surprised while watching the news.
Trivial of episode eleven includes a remake of the song “Maneater” played while Grant reunited with her son. It was so inappropriate as a reunion song between a mom and son. Kara’s hair is more auburn than Supergirl’s hair. A distinction is being drawn between her two identities. Supergirl is speaking up for herself. She tells an ungrateful anti-alien Senator Miranda Crane (Tawny Cypress), “I guess you forgot the part where I saved your [expletive].” Apparently, Supergirl knows her value.
