Show/Episode: Supergirl Season 1, Episode 12, “Bizarro”
Ship(s): Kara/James (Karolsen)
Well, fellow shippers, after several episodes that relegated Karolsen to the back burner, we were treated to an episode that included several scenes of James and Kara together, more sniping and bonding between the SuperBros James and Winn, a quick wrap-up to the side romance we worried may have gotten in the way of Karolsen and, best of all, a declarations of love! However, since this was the Bizarro episode, things did not happen the way we may have wanted them to. Still though, it was a big step in the right direction for James and Kara, even if they don’t exactly know it yet.
The main story this week involved the Supergirl doppleganger we all, Kara included, glimpsed at the end of last week’s episode. It turns out Maxwell Lord has been acquiring comatose Jane Doe’s and experimenting on them, using Kara’s DNA that Alex inadvertently gave him access to, in an attempt to create a Supergirl of his own. Bizarro Supergirl, as Cat Grant names her, has the same strength as Kara, along with opposing powers (ex: she breathes fire while Kara breathes cold air) and has been brainwashed to hate Kara. In their first confrontation, both Kara and Bizarro see more of each other than an enemy. In their second confrontation, Bizarro is hit with Kryptonite, which disfigures and enrages her. Bizarro, with Maxwell Lord’s prompting, decides to hurt Kara by going after the person she loves. We are led to believe she’s going to go after Alex but, surprise surprise, she kidnaps James instead!
