Supergirl recap: Season 2, Episode 17, “Distant Sun” Aired March 27, 2017.
This episode of Supergirl is called, “A Guide to Bad Parenting.” It is written by, Mon-El’s parents, Hercules and Teri Hatcher.
This guide will feature the 5 worst moments of parenting.
1. Putting a bounty on your son’s girlfriend.
National City gets attacked by a one-eyed alien at the beginning of the episode. Supergirl goes to fight him. She wins.
Back at the DEO they find out Kara has a bounty on her head. Someone is offering a lot of money to any alien that kills her. Alex tells Kara to lay low.
2. Lying about putting said bounty, on her head.
Mon-El invites his parents to the alien bar he works at. He sits them down. They criticize where he works. He cringes.
“Did you put the bounty on Kara’s head?”
“What? No. Why would you even ask us that? What kind of people do you think we are?”
“We just want you back.”
They promise Mon-El they aren’t behind the bounty. Guess what? – They are!
3. Giving the worst ultimatum in history.
Turns out Mon-El’s mother made it. His father knew nothing about it. When Kara and Mon-El go to talk her, all chaos breaks out.
Rhea and Supergirl begin to battle. Rhea pulls out these bad ass kryptonite daggers and stabs Kara.
Sidebar- Teri Hatcher is insane in this role!
Rhea seems like she has bested Kara and Mon-El makes the ultimate decision. If she leaves Kara alone, he will go back with her.
4. Fighting all of you friends.
The super friends being super friends decide to rescue Mon-El. Superfriends vs. Daxamites, here we go!
- J’onn arrives disguised as Supergirl and fights Rhea. Rhea’s daggers have no effect on him.
- J’onn reveals himself and the rest crash the party.
- Winn rescues Mon-El from his prison. That’s my Winn!
- The real Supergirl battles the guards.
Mon-El’s father has had enough. He calls everyone to a hault.
“Rhea, is this what you wanted? Mon-El has made his choice. He chooses them.”
He tells his son they can go.
“I am glad you all are alive, but you cannot come back here. Goodbye Mother, goodbye father.”
The team leaves the ship.
5. Killing your son’s father.
Rhea is infuriated with her husband. He stood in the way of her kingdom and son.
How does a crazy ruler take out obstacles? She stabs them!
That’s right, folks. Rhea just killed her own husband. I wish I could say it was sad, but the truth is- he wasn’t that interesting. He did the right thing in the in, so props for that.
He should have never let it get that far. What will Mon-El do when he finds out? I guess we will see.
