Welcome back to Maid of Steel! Karen and Emilee are back to discuss Supergirl Season 2 Episode 14 “Homecoming” which originally aired on Monday February 27, 2017. This episode featured the return of Jeremiah Danvers (Dean Cain) and ushered in the next phase for Cadmus’s agenda. When the DEO gets an alert that Cadmus is moving something, a weapon of some sort, Supergirl flies in to put an end to it only to come face to face with a badly beaten Jeremiah. He’s welcomed back at the DEO with open arms and open minds, but is immediately met with suspicion by Kara’s boyfriend.

Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog

In case enough time passed for you to forget, let me put this nugget back into your mind. Jeremiah was a bullfrog. He was a good friend of mine. mos-35-buggedBut times have changed, haven’t they? There is much more to the Jeremiah/Cadmus ship than we yet know, but we can likely make one large assumption: he’s not doing this because he wants to.

If Cadmus’s goal, in briefly surrendering Jeremiah to the DEO, was to obtain the master list of aliens in National City (and presumably all whom they know about), then this must have been a major piece to the puzzle. Using Jeremiah as their proverbial Trojan Horse will only work once. Now the DEO, now Kara and Alex and J’onn, they know his true allegiance. Maybe they don’t know why his allegiance has shifted, but they certainly won’t trust another glorified homecoming. Since that card has been played, what is next? mos-35-bionic-man

As I say on the podcast, I’m interested in seeing what else Cadmus has Jeremiah involved in which still makes him necessary (not expendable) and still makes him stick around (to uphold the deal to save his kids). Has his idealism on aliens truly shifted? Unlikely, but…nevertheless possible. That little walk Lillian and Jeremiah shared at the end, it was quite telling. He’s not a prisoner at Cadmus; is he so deep that he’s even convinced himself, or does he truly realize there is no other choice? With a bionic arm, now, you have to assume he’s powerful enough to escape, so whatever Cadmus has planned for the aliens in National City (slash the world) must be extensive enough that he needs to stick around to ascertain Kara’s life.
