Supergirl Midseason Report Card: Best Throwback, Worst Character, and More!

at .  Updated at .

We were left with a pretty major cliffhanger at the end of Supergirl Season 3 Episode 9

While we spend the next few weeks wondering if Kara will survive her battle with Reign (okay, we know she will), we're going to review the first part of the season and discuss what worked and what didn't. 

Which character was underused? What was the biggest shock? Check out our midseason report card and let us know if you agree with the grade we gave it!

If you're missing Kara, Mon-El, and the rest of the gang, don't forget you can watch Supergirl online until the season resumes on January 15!

1. Most Frustrating Underuse of a Character

Most Frustrating Underuse of a Character
This is something Supergirl fans have been complaining about ever since J'onn was revealed to be the Martian Manhunter. He's an alien with powers and super strength, just like Kara, yet he's almost always on the sidelines during the big battles. While Kara was being beaten into unconsciousness by Reign, where was J'onn? At the very least, he should have been there to catch her when she was thrown off the roof of a building!

2. Biggest Blunder

Biggest Blunder
Supergirl doesn't make too many mistakes, but somehow no one caught this one. When Maggie's dad came to visit, he told her "they're building a wall to keep us out." Here's a question though, who is building this wall? In Supergirl's world, Trump isn't president, Lynda Carter's President Marsdin is, and she doesn't come across as the type who would be building a wall. We know Press Secretary Cat Grant would not be okay with that. The writers goofed on this one.

3. Best Casting

Best Casting
We're giving props to the casting department for choosing the perfect actresses to portray young Alex and young Kara. Izabela Vidovic and Olivia Nikkanen not only looked like their older counterparts, but both completely embodied the personailities of their characters. If Supergirl ever wants to bring these two back for more flashbacks, we'd be on board!

4. Biggest Shock

Biggest Shock
After seven months, Mon-El finally returned, except it wasn't just seven months for him. We learned that Mon-El is actually from the future, is a part of a group called Legion, and oh yeah, he's married! What? Poor Kara was just finally getting to a place where she could move on, and then he showed up with Imra and threw a wrench into her healing. It doesn't help that Imra is excruciatingly nice.

5. Most Underwhelming Transformation

Most Underwhelming Transformation
Look, we loved Sam's storyline this season, but her actual transformation into Reign left a little to be desired. With so much build up leading to the big reveal, we just expected more. It all happened so fast, and the special effects were just so-so. We are extremely excited that Sam has now become Reign though, and we can't wait to see how it all ends.

6. Saddest Development

Saddest Development
We were crushed when #Sanvers broke up, and it's even more heartbreaking knowing that it has nothing to do with how they feel about each other. They're still completely in love, but unfortunately, they have different opinions on a very important issue. Alex wants kids someday, and Maggie doesn't. It sucks, but if they stayed together, they most likely would have ended up resenting each other. We know it's for the best, but it's still devastating.
