Supergirl Recap ‘Mr. and Mrs. Mxyzptlk’
Then fifth dimensional being Mxyzptlk appears last episode to announce his love for Kara Zor-El, breaking up Kara and Mon-El’s moment of finally being together. Mxyzptlk tells Kara that he intends to make her his wife. Kara turns him down, but Mxyzptlk is far from done with her. He tries to “woo” her by attacking the city in different ways and then helping her stop the threat. Needless to say, she is not pleased.
It’s Valentine’s Day in National City and several people are trying to make it a good one. Winn is in the alien bar when he is attacked by a couple of thugs. A woman, Lyra, saves him. She is also an alien, but that doesn’t stop Winn from asking her to be his Valentine’s date. Kara and Mon-El are going to have their first official date in celebration of the holiday, trying to ignore the Mxyzptlk problem. Alex is excited to have her first Valentine’s with Maggie, but Maggie believes that the holiday is garbage, shooting down any plans Alex has. Alex later finds out that Maggie was outed on Valentine’s day, hence her dislike of the holiday.
Mon-El is a bit jealous of Mxyzptlk, but, naturally, won’t admit to it to Kara. They bicker throughout most of the episode. Mon-El decides to take matters into his own hands and stop Mxyzptlk himself, but ends up needing to be saved by Kara. She tells Mxyzptlk that she will marry him (as it’s the only way he’ll leave and not hurt anyone else). Mon-El is upset that she agreed to this, and Kara tells him that maybe she was wrong about Mon-El changing. She says that she and Mxyzptlk might make a great team. Their powers combined could help a lot of people.
Kara and Mxyzptlk meet at the Fortress of Solitude, where Kara breaks the news that she isn’t going to marry him. She shuts down the Fortress and sets the core to explode unless a code is entered into the computer. She tricks Mxyzptlk into entering his name backwards into the computer, thus sending him back to the fifth dimension. Smart on her part, but if Mxyzptlk ever figures out how to get back, Kara’s in for some serious trouble.
Mon-El comes to Kara and apologizes for how he acted, telling her that she is his Kryptonite. Kara says that she only said those things to trick Mon-El and get him out of the way so she could take down Mxyzptlk. They make up and give their relationship a shot.
Next week’s episode is entitled ‘Homecoming’ and we will finally get the return of Cadmus and Jeremiah.
