SUPERGIRL Recap: Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk

Editor’s note: This post contains spoilers for The CW’s Supergirl. Proceed with caution if you haven’t caught up yet. 

At the end of last week’s episode of Supergirl, Kara and Mon-El were finally gearing up for their first kiss when the mischievous Mr. Mxyzptlk showed up and interrupted the fun. As expected, his intrusive presence continued to muck things up for the duo during “Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk”. In fact, several members of the team experienced their own relationship highs and lows last night. So how did your favorite super couple fare? Keep reading to find out.

Ah, Valentine’s Day. If you’re one of the lucky few in National City, you might just end up with roses, romantic music, and candles packed into your apartment—at least that’s what happened to Kara last night. But this romantic show of affection didn’t come from Mon-El. Oh no, it came from the episode’s villain, Mr. Mxyzptlk—a known trickster in the DC universe. Of course, this isn’t the Mr. M we’re familiar with. We later learned  that the reason he traveled to Earth was to make Kara his wife.

Despite the romantic gesture, Kara rejected his proposal and sent him back to the drawing board. Unfortunately, that drawing board was in the form of a faux alien attack that Mxy set up so that he could play the hero. When the fake threat became too much for Kara and Mon-El to handle, Mxy showed up dressed like Superman. I don’t know about you, but if someone was trying to seduce me while dressed like one of my cousins, it’d probably be a turnoff.

Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk

Unsurprisingly, Kara wasn’t into the deception either. Mxy’s next step in his plan of love was to offer an ultimatum—ladies love ultimatums. Kara now had two options: become his wife or allow things to become “bad” for the world. The whole Kara getting proposed to thing didn’t sit well with Mon-El for obvious reasons. His solution was to simply kill Mxy, which obviously wasn’t something Kara was down with. As a result, she pushed Mon away, and into his own trouble.

After leaving Kara, Mon-El stole a mysterious alien relic and headed off to face Mxy. One thing led to another and the guys were duking it out in a Hamilton-themed duel (yes, really). Using the relic, Mon was able to briefly disrupt the trickster’s powers. When Mxy gained the upper hand, Kara showed up and changed the game by agreeing to marry him after all at the Fortress of Solitude. Despite telling Mon-El that she really thought the marriage was a good idea, Kara planned a trap that worked as she’d expected.

Kara arrived at the Fortress of Solitude soon after Mxy, donning her Supergirl suit instead of a wedding dress. Surprise! Kara never had any intention of marrying Mr. Mxyzptlk. When Mxy blew a gasket and set one of the statues to attack, Kara set the atomic cauldron to self destruct. As she explained to Mxy, she was willing to die before being with him. With seconds to spare, Kara directed Mxy to put in the password to shut it down. Unfortunately for him, the password spelled out his name backwards—the only way to defeat him.

Supergirl Alex and Maggie

Meanwhile, things were a bit rocky for Alex and Maggie. Maggie has a deep dislike of Valentine’s Day, and refused to celebrate it. Alex, on the other hand, had been looking forward to celebrating it with her new lady. When she went ahead and set up a romantic night anyways, she was met with a very angry Maggie. She explained that when she was a teen, she sent a Valentine to a fellow female friend who showed the note to her parents, who then showed it to Maggie’s parents (all before anyone knew she was a lesbian). It was her own deep love of Alex, and Kara’s urging that convinced Maggie to set things right.

At the end of the night, Mon-El showed up to compliment Kara on her work, and admit that he should have trusted her. He also admitted that Kara was his kryptonite; rather, his feelings for her were his kryptonite. (barf) Then Kara admitted to lying to him to keep him safe and they finally kissed (and kissed, and kissed, and kissed). Will they stay together? Probably not! Find out in next week’s recap.
