In Review: Supergirl (S6 – EP18) Truth or Consequences

Supergirl is determined to keep everyone safe from Lex and Nyxly so she doubles down on patrol, especially as Alex and Kelly's bachelorette party is coming up.

Synopsis: In Truth or Consequences. Supergirl is determined to keep everyone safe from Lex and Nyxly so she doubles down on patrol, especially as Alex and Kelly’s bachelorette party is coming up.


The Story

The team begins to see the consequences tied into Lex Luther’s return as Andrea Roja leaks his journal of love poems that Otis gave to William Dey with other information about Lex. Of course, William is not happy about this and confronts Andrew about her misuse of his work. Elsewhere, Alex and Kelly are preparing for their Bachelorette party, but some trouble with Esme almost spoils things and brings Alex and Kara into conflict.

Meanwhile, Lex and Nyxly are plotting their next move, which is to kidnap young Esme because they know something that Supergirl doesn’t.


The Acting

Jon Cryer and Peta Sergeant put on a show as Lex Luther and Nyxly begin to truly bond with each other, which is bad news for Supergirl. We also get a really strong performance from Staz Nair as William Dey who gets to show a softer and more gentle side. His scenes with Mila Jones who plays Esme are beautifully done. I loved the little story that he tells Esme about how his mother used to make chocolate. Of course, this is all foreshadowing for a horrible event that comes at the end of the episode.

We also get a strong scene from Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh as we see Kara and Alex clash over child care issues. Fortunately, they don’t stay mad at each other for too long.



Truth or Consequences pretty much sets things into motion so that the writers can build toward the forthcoming series finale. We see a tragic event, which will likely rile up the team to go after Lex and Nyxly and rescue Esme. But it’s an event that may also guilt Andrea Rojas into joining the Superfriends as Acrata.

Overall. A fairly good episode.
