With the return of Comic-Con means that we’re even closer to the new seasons of our favorite shows. All of those teases in the season finale, answers are imminent. And if there’s one show we have a lot of questions about, it’s Supergirl.
Supergirl‘s season finale did a lot to tease the new season, including the huge reveal where Lena learned that Kara was Supergirl. It’s a moment we’ve been waiting for, knowing it’s going to have a significant emotional impact on the series. Then there’s the ships that set sail in the finale, with Nia & Brainy and Alex & Kelly. Oh, and the impact of the impending crossover.
So many questions. So little time. Hopefully, we’ll get some kind of answers here.
Here are five questions we want answered at Comic-Con:
1. How will Lena deal with learning Kara is Supergirl?
It was the big reveal I wondered if it would ever happen. And it did. Lena learned that Kara is Supergirl. And, worst of all, it wasn’t Kara that told her. It was Lex. Lena is someone that hasn’t reacted well to betrayal, as we’ve seen, and the fact that her best friend was lying to her about something so important is not going to sit well with her. What does it say when her manipulative brother was more honest than her best friend?
But it’s also more than Kara. While Kara had been lying to her, so had all of her so-called “friends,” who knew the truth. So amplify that anger tenfold and wonder where we’re going to find Lena when season 5 picks up.
2. What can we expect from Nia and Brainy’s relationship?
One of my favorite things last season was watching the relationship develop between Nia and Brainy. It was like watching two puppy dogs together, they were that cute. Brainy, who had no idea of feelings and emotions at the start, found at first hand what it meant to fall in love. AND. I. DIED.
But, if this relationship is going to be sustained, we’re going to need to see more development. We’re going to need to see them having more of those conversations. Because Dreamy can maintain that cute puppy dog love and still develop their relationship emotionally. Just tell me we’re going to get more Dreamy this season!
3. What can we expect from Alex and Kelly’s relationship?
While it was a late addition to the season, the arrival of Kelly Olsen acted as a catalyst for several things. Yes, it impacted James, but it also introduced a new person for Alex to confide in. Alex and Kelly’s friendship was effortless. It was easy for them to connect. And even in that short time watching those feelings grow from friendship to something more, it was magical. And it ended in a goodnight kiss.
So what can we expect from these two lovelies in season 5? We still know that Alex is searching for a way to have it all — be the director of the DEO and have a family. Kelly has been supportive from the start. Could Alex find it all with Kelly?
4. What is ‘Leviathan?’
Season finales are always used to not only wrap up a story, but also set the stage for the new season. And one of those teases was about an organization called “Leviathan,” which somehow involves Eve. Eve’s involvement with Lex last season was just the tip of what she’s doing for Leviathan. So what is this organization? What is Eve’s involvement? Could this be our big bad this season?
5. How much of this season will be affected by ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths?’
While I love a good crossover, there’s no denying that these crossovers have had too much control over the individual shows than some fans would like (myself included.) Supergirl had not one, but two appearances from The Monitor in its season finale, as he delivered a Green Martian (that’s right, there’s another!) for J’Onn J’Onzz and took a presumably dead Lex Luthor. Could we see Lex in Crisis on Infinite Earths? I want more Lex.
Supergirl‘s new season premieres Oct. 6 on The CW.
