Absolute best exchange of the episode:

Breen: Did I mention I'm a black belt?

Lena: Did I mention I'm a Luthor?

At the end, Mon-El's mother approached Lena, so I'm sure more Daxamite shenanigans are coming.

Saturn Girl, in Arkham Asylum, freaks out at seeing a hockey games on tv. She screams, "Stop it. Can't you see? Nothing stops it. Superman won't come. Our friends will die. The Legion will die. No one will stop it...no one will save us!"

Now the Empress is raving that Kara ruined her life. Apparently the Empress talked to Saturn Girl, and Saturn Girl told her Kara was responsible for whatever it is the Empress is going on about.

 

Okay, I've gone ahead and called it: I established a new era called "Rebirth." With Legion-related content on the Berlanti shows as well as the Rebirth era in the comics, this seems like a good time.

For simplicity, I dated the new era from the appearance of the Legion flight ring on Flash in February 2016; that allows for Mon-El's first appearance on Supergirl in March 2016, and Saturn Girl's appearance in DC Universe Rebirth #1 in July 2016.

As I post this, the nature of Legion(s) is still unknown, but it looks like they'll be coming to comics and/or tv sooner than later. Stay tuned for further developments.

Episode directed by Kevin Smith.

Mon-El's father dies.

President Wonder Woman is revealed to be a Durlan impostor.

As scene opens in the Fortress, the Legion Flight Ring on display fills the screen, then the camera draws back and refocuses on the background. Could this be a signal of more Legion content to come?

It occurs to me that the Legion is a perfect fit for this show: instead of the three founders coming back in time to visit Supergirl, they could draw on the first Supergirl Legion story in the comics and make it Saturn Girl, Triplicate Girl, and Phantom Girl...or really, any female Legionnaires. There are a lot to draw from. They've already mentioned Starhaven, so Dawnstar would be a natural. Can't you just see Ayla and Vi double-dating with Alex and Maggie? Yera helping Supergirl to combat rogue Durlans? Jeckie and Rhea in a showdown of Queens?

Damn, now I want Berlanti to do a Legion series.

It probably won't happen. But it sure would be cool.

Mon-El shines as everyone else in the show takes stupid pills. Which must contain Kryptonite, since they also work on Kara.

Three things from this episode that made me squee:

  1. Mon-El in his undies
  2. Kara made Mxyzptlk spell his name backwards
  3. The girl who dated Winn was from Starhaven. She might be an ancestor of Dawnstar.

In discussing romantic relationships (in relation to Alex & Maggie's romance), Mon-El says, "On Daxam it was 'the more the merrier.'" Oooo, baby!

Among the weapons in Luthor's Lair is "an atomic axe." Unknown if this is a reference to the Persuader. If so, though, that might indicate a cool addition to Legion mythos: if the Persuader's atomic axe was invented by Lex Luthor.

I thought we were going to see Mon-El's superhero suit, but no. Maybe next time.

Green Lantern rings recognize the Emerald Eye as "unknown Lantern technology." The Eye refuses to act against one of the Green Lanterns; the ring reports temporal energy. Then, when another Lantern cracks the Eye, the Empress fades away with it, saying "If the Eye breaksI'll be trapped here -- but I have to find her. I have to find Saturn Girllll..."

So, yeah, that happened.

On the planet Maaldor, an unknown group of aliens is in pursuit of Mon-El.

Both Supergirl (as Kara on Krypton) and Mon-El have traveled to other planets in the past. This indicates a level of space-travel technology much advanced over the traditional level on Krypton (and possibly Daxam?)
