I chuckled at the reverse politics. Obviously Supergirl plays with the female President and an oafish Speaker. Great way to use Cat Grant and spare Callista some travel. (I think she dislikes travel more than Whoopi Goldberg, and that’s an epic level of flight fright.)
Yup. Also goes a long way to explaining the emotional stunting that seems endemic; the very inability to recognize and grapple with basic emotions without considerable drama. Very clumsy, at the least. Supergirl can find a heartbeat underwater (which was pretty cool) but cannot figure out she’s going through some fairly basic grieving? Not too clever, there.
