"I know that you think that I'm a monster. But half of England said the same thing about Winston Churchill before World War II. So, I guess we'll just wait and see. History will prove me right."
Ben Lockwood to Alex Danvers
"Stand and Deliver" is the fourteenth episode of the fourth season of Supergirl, and the seventy-ninth episode overall. It aired on March 10, 2019.

Synopsis

Between Ben Lockwood’s new push to stir up the anti-alien movement and the Elite’s desire to target Lockwood and his minions, Supergirl is concerned about the safety of the American people – both human and alien. When Lockwood organizes a rally, the aliens decide to peacefully protest. Brainiac and J'onn join the alien march while Supergirl and Dreamer patrol to keep everyone safe. Meanwhile, James picks up his camera again to cover the march for CatCo, and Haley assigns Alex a job that clashes with her beliefs. When the Elite and Ben Lockwood stir up trouble at the rally, Supergirl is forced to take a stand.[1]

Trivia

  • When Manchester, Hat, and Mo arrive at the Fortress of Solitude, Manchester mentions Hat's friend "Mxy". This is a reference to Mxyzptlk, who also appeared in the Fortress in the Season 2 episode "Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk".
  • Brainy's online user name is "American Alien", which clearly refers to the Season 4 premiere, "American Alien".
    • It also could refer to the seven-issue comic by Max Landis called Superman: American Alien.
  • The attack on the rally featured the Gary Jules cover of Tears for Fears' "Mad World" that first appeared in the film Donnie Darko before it became known for its usage in several films, commercials and TV shows including the Smallville episode "Visage".

Goofs

  • The Alien Amnesty Act is stated to be an Act of Congress that the president signed into law. However, it was previously established to be an executive order enacted by President Olivia Marsdin.[2]
