Guest starring[]




  • The episode title is a play on the American television sitcom Malcolm in the Middle.
    • It also references how Mxy was literally "in the middle" of Supergirl and Nyxlygsptlnz in the opening scene and the fight later on.
  • Mxy explains in song to the tune of the 1978 song "I Will Survive".
  • The fragments of the AllStone are a near-match for the Paragons: Hope, Love, Courage, Humanity, Destiny, and Truth, with Dreams replacing Honor on the list.
    • Subsequent episodes either have titles or plot themes that hint at which totem Nxyly is going after.
  • Brainy confirms that imps can't kill, but Nyxly has a workaround for that by summoning a monster. This is similar to how the genie rules in The Return of Jafar kept the title villain from outright killing, but not from setting up fatal circumstances to get around it.
  • Lena's mother's name is revealed to be Elizabeth Walsh.
  • This is the first time Lena isn't treated with distrust because she's a Luthor (due to Crisis changing her family history), but due to her biological maternal lineage.
  • Lena is revealed to be the daughter of a witch, and therefore has magic. However, there are currently no witches, warlocks, or otherwise magical allies of the Superfriends available at present to help teach her—John Constantine's whereabouts are unknown, Astra Logue and Gary Green are trapped in the 1920s[1] (with the latter also being inept with magic), and Nora Darhk is busy as a fairy godmother.


  • During the fight with the giant cat, the ground is somehow left unscathed from Alex's missile and Kara's heat vision.
