Season two was a critical one for Supergirl and it’s not just because she was pulled out of the Phantom Zone of cancelled shows, moved to a new network and injected with new life.

In 22 episodes, the DC character and her group of fellow heroes thwarted two major attacks on National City while removing several less-disastrous threats, they welcomed a few new good guys to the team, learned to accept that not all Luthors are evil and they all experienced some sort of romance.

Yes, it was a big one that flew by so quickly, you’ve probably already forgotten half the things that happened, so here’s a quick recap (OBVIOUSLY don’t read on if you haven’t finished watching it yet – this is literally all spoilers!):

3. And even received a boost in his career when he was put in charge of CatCo because…

47. Oh, and how could I forget! Superman made an appearance not once, not twice, not three times, but four times throughout the season!

48. He was influenced into turning against his cousin

49. And may have hinted at a Justice League movie storyline when he said: “If it comes down to a choice between Lois and the world, I don’t think I could.”
