"Schott Through The Heart" is the fourteenth episode of the third season of Supergirl and the fifty-sixth episode overall. It aired on April 16, 2018.


When Winn's father dies, his estranged mother, Mary, reappears trying to reconnect and to explain why she abandoned him all those years ago. Winn is too embittered from his rough childhood to forgive her but when a copycat Toyman attacks, the two must work together to stop him. Mon-El tells Kara something important about the Worldkillers, and Alex becomes suspicious of M'yrnn's recent behavior.[1]


  • The episode title is a play on lyrics from the 1986 Bon Jovi song "You Give Love A Bad Name".
  • When Mary gets trapped in a toy pick up claw, she yells out "Buffalo Bill, why are you doing this to us?" Buffalo Bill was the name of the serial killer in The Silence of the Lambs (1991) who captured females and skinned them. Brooke Smith, plays Jacqueline Nimball, played one of those victims.
  • The flying monkeys from Oz are referenced in the episode.
  • Winn says that the nice officer draped a coat around him the night his father finally snapped, referencing Bruce Wayne at his parents' deaths, when Commissioner Gordon draped his coat around Bruce in order to console him.
