Pulling strings behind the scenes is Lex Luthor and his collection of bad guys on one side, and Batman and a secret team on the other. Both sides are clashing with the Outsiders caught in the middle. I can’t imagine things are going to go well when the young heroes learn about the machinations surrounding their attempts to do good work.
After six seasons, lots of monsters, game nights and Balcony Conversations™, Supergirl’s run comes to end. The show is reported to have ended over falling ratings, major delays and complications from the Coronavirus (I guess even Supergirl isn’t immune, get your shots!). This final season has been about Nxyly, Lex, and the race to control…
Supergirl has run for six seasons, making friends, allies, and enemies, taking part in crossovers, and and trying to find their niche in the Arrowverse. There have been a lot of changes and shifts, new faces, and losses.
The final season of Supergirl has been uneven, and that might be kind. There have been some truly abysmal episodes, and a few decent, but not great ones. We’re back to the “decent” side of things, which is at least better than horrible.
The end is almost here for Supergirl and company. The final season nears the finale, and the race for the totems is on. The team wasn’t doing well facing just Nxyly, and now they have a returned Lex Luthor to deal with, which shakes up everyone.
Supergirl’s sixth and final season is off to an odd start. The Girl of Steel herself has been exiled to the Phantom Zone, so she’s away from all her friends and allies, which is an odd choice for the show winding down.
Last episode of Supergirl was another hybrid sort of thing, being officially the premier of the sixth and final season, but also sort of the finale of season five, all smushed together due to COVID complications. Now, we’re dealing with the new issues introduced last time, as various subplots and status quos are set up for the coming episodes.
The Arrowverse is still trying to sort out the various effects of the COVID pandemic on their production schedules. With delays slowing down Superman and Lois, Supergirl returns to take their time slot for that show’s final season. Last season ended on a different cliffhanger than was intended, as the season lost three episodes out of their original schedule.
For reasons I’m sure make sense to network executives, and maybe are tied to COIVD issues/delays, after this episode, Clark gives his timeslot to his cousin as the final season of Supergirl airs in this space until May.
Harley is good at a lot of things, and avoiding dealing with her feelings is way up on that list. She led an invasion of Earth, or least Gotham, to not think about her and Ivy kissing, and now she’s throwing herself into a new distraction.
