I think Lockwood's story ended with his imprisonment and they sort of dragged him out. He's a domestic terrorist and only got away with his deeds by writer fiat.After the Reign mess last year, the writing staff seems to have learned a lesson about putting everything on one Big Bad, since we had multiple Bads this season -- Lockwood, the Elite, Red Daughter, Lex. (In fact, you could say that about the other Berlantiverse shows this year -- Flash had the two Cicadas and Reverse-Flash, while Arrow had Diaz, Dante, and Emiko.) Still, the problem with juggling so many villains and storylines is that some of them get short shrift, and I thought Lockwood's story in particular got cut awkwardly short. Which is a shame because Sam Witwer was doing some great work earlier this season as a villainous demagogue who couldn't be beaten just by Supergirl punching him in the face... so they end his story by giving him super-powers and having him get punched in the face.
Still, it was a great improvement on season 3, and I'm looking forward to seeing where they go from here.
Well, Lex can destroy the Sun and he had Evil Supergirl so I'd say they could have won. Just...maybe not much of a United States left.I wonder - how credible was the Kaznian invasion attempt anyway? I mean, if Lex had fought on their side instead against them - they still would have lost, wouldn't they?
