This episode was pitch-perfect.

Mon-El is revealed to be the Crown Prince of Daxam. His mother is Queen Rhea and his father is King Lar Gand.

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.

Kara decides she might like Mon-El after all, but he's already moved on...or has he?

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.

Supergirl Lives

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?)

The Empress says that Amanda Waller promised her "Intel on Saturn Girl." So I guess Imra's the Legionnaire Sarya's after. This makes sense, since we saw Imra (albeit in disguise) in DC Universe Rebirth #1

Justice League vs Suicide Squad Chapter Three

Still no explanation of what the Empress is doing in the 21st century. Amanda Waller says that the Emerald Eye "has elements of Green Lantern technology." I'm not sure if this is new, or not.

(I think it falls under the DC Comics principle that anything green must have something to do with the Green Lanterns.)

It's good to see the Legion represented in this memorial collection for the victims of the Pulse shootings.

For almost 60 years the Legion has been an inclusive group, at least by the standards of its time.

The Empress says "I must find the Legionnaire." Could be anyone...but we did see Saturn Girl in this time period in DC Universe Rebirth #1. Of course, she could also be talking about Superman. Time will tell.
