SUMMARY: Cat Grant’s career is in crisis when her email account gets hacked by someone within her own company. Meanwhile, Supergirl decides that punching Astra is more important than finding out what she wants and nobody in the D.E.O. questions this decision.
SUPERMAN COUNT: 3
Syd: Welcome to Episode 8, where Jimmy can stop trying. He’s the best thing on this show by such a wide margin that it’s embarrassing to the rest of the show.
Margaret: I know! Despite the fact that I still really love Melissa Benoist’s acting.
Syd: Look, Melissa Benoist and Calista Flockhart are doing great, but all of the likability that the writers can muster is going into Jimmy.
Margaret: I’m going to disagree with you about Cat Grant’s character, at least. I love Cat Grant’s character, but it feels like since she is semi-antagonistic, they keep on rebooting her every episode, which they don’t do with James’ character.
Syd: I enjoy Cat’s character for what it is, but it isn’t likeable. Part of her function is to be antagonistic and hard to like. Unfortunately, that can be limiting at times.
