Supergirl Season 1 Episode 5 “How Does She Do It” Review

How Does She Do It starts quite fast paced and a little out of sync with the bombshell that was dropped at the end of Limewire.  Kara is rushing around the city and all of a sudden she is being followed by a drone and takes it back to the DEO only to be told it’s not one of theirs.  Kara doesn’t really trust Henshaw but Alex does, and that is settle but after the fact they found out their father worked for him should really ask more questions.

Cat Grant wins an award that she has never won up until this point being second fiddle to Lois Lane, but she isn’t able to go because she has no one to look after her son Carter.  Lucy Lane being back in two Kara offers to look after Carter and finding out he is in love with Supergirl seems to cheer her up.  However when the city becomes under fire with bombs and Supergirl has to juggle looking after Carter and saving the city it could become too much.  Carter ends up in harm’s way because he wants to meet Supergirl not knowing that he has been next to her for the whole time.

Kara also in trying not get into the friends zone with James Olsen who is struggling with taking over from Cat as she away ends up having to listen to both sides of the story.  What will her advice be and will it end up putting Lucy and James together as it seems a like a love triangle that could either way.  Max Lord seems to be the target of the bombs and they have to piece together who is really at fault.

The Verdict

How Does She Do It really does open up the characters a little more, because although the bomb threats were really but the way Kara has to deal with people’s personal problems and looking after Cat’s son the viewer sees a different side to them all.  The questions over Henshaw was put on a back burner yet there were subtle reminders there is something not right about him.
