Last week’s episode of Supergirl was a big one for Kara. She worked on her anger issues, which resulted in a couple of breakthroughs.

The first was in an amazing scene featuring Kara and James. They were struggling with life (and superhero) things and Kara felt taking their frustrations out on a punching bag or — for her — a car, would be beneficial and she was right.

Kara: Oh my God. Cat was right. There is anger behind the anger.
James: Are there like extra emotions I don’t know about on Krypton?
Kara: No…I thought I was mad seeing you…seeing you and Lucy makes me think that I’m never gonna have what you two have. Someone who knows everything about me. My perfect partner at a game night.
James: Kara you’ll find someone…
Kara: Growing up on Earth, I never felt normal. And I always thought that if I started to use my powers my life would make sense. But I’m realizing that being myself doesn’t make me feel more normal and it never will because my normal life ended the second my parents put me on that ship. And that makes me somad.

This emotional breakthrough provided some great Kara POV. It enabled her superheroic self to defeat the bad guy (aka Breakthrough #2). Up until her final confrontation with Red Tornado, she let her anger control her. Thanks to the demolished car and a very insightful lecture from Cat, she realized she was no longer afraid of her anger. All she needed to do was “channel it to work for me and not against me.”

That’s what she did.

Kara destroyed Red Tornado after the robot became sentient. It was a powerful moment that also featured quick Kryptonian flashbacks. Her feelings over being sent away clearly take the top spot on her anger list.

Digging deep to take care of Red Tornado wasn’t all positive. Apparently, there’s a side effect to unleashing all that power and energy. At the end of “Red Faced,” Kara was bleeding. Tonight she’s going to figure out what it means to be “Human For a Day.”
