A Few Good Women Synopsis

So we all know that Covid-19 threw a huge wrench into filming and television production as a whole and continues to do so. One of the resulting outcomes of that was last season being cut short by one episode. Naturally the opening episode this season will feel a lot like a season finale as many of those storylines need to be addressed and wrapped up. That said, reading the synopsis for episode 602, it sounds like the powers that be are instead going to push the envelope even further! We weren't sure if Lex Luthor would still be around after episode 601 but he certainly is and from what we are hearing there is going to be a whole story arc in the first seven episodes that will set up the final 13 like never before. Check out the synopsis below:

THE BREAKING POINT – As the stakes with Lex (Jon Cryer) are raised higher than ever before, Lena (Katie McGrath) must decide how far she is willing to go to stop her brother. Meanwhile, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the team are faced with a challenge unlike anything they’ve ever dealt with before and it brings Alex (Chyler Leigh) to her breaking point. Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Robert Rovner & Jessica Queller and teleplay by Jay Faerber & Jess Kardos (#602). Original airdate 4/6/2021.

Looking forward to see how Lena will be called to account for her season 5 actions. Potential for some good stuff there.


My guess? She wont be. They'll just say "she's good now", and she won't face any repercussions.


That's my thoughts, she came to her senses and did the right thing in the end. Saved Supergirl from Acrata, helping stop Lex and Gamenmae and etc. I think they drug out the Lena drama far too long and alienated fans. I suspect they will put it behind them and simply move on. Lots to do for the final season.

You shouldn't shatter my fragile hopes so early, kdogg87. :D

Oh Drat. Tell me it ain't so Joe. I was hoping that Lex would be outenzeed after episode 3. Now I have to suffer through 7 or more episodes with this squeezed out lemon. Lena looks good. :o

Looking at the synopsis for this episode, what would bring Alex to her breaking point in a Supegirl lite episode? My guess is that it has to do with Kara sacrificing herself in the first episode, anything that would take Kara away from her sister is enough to send Alex close to her breaking point. Especially when she almost lost her in the Red Dawn episode. Getting SuperGirl back might require that Lena kills her brother and her mother or send them both back to jail. This would definitely make for a SuperGirl lite episode which focuses on Alex and Lena but also has the SuperGirl team in it.

[quote name="comic fan"]Intersesting,so Lex does continue on beyond the premiere.It seems Supergirl is doing what The Flash just did and is using the first part of the season to wrap up last season's stories(in Flash's case,it was episodes 1-3 this season).

Perhaps, but The Flash had a 22 episode order last season and ended at 19, so it really had 3 to go.

Supergirl was cut back from 22 to 20, presumably to start filming season 6 early to accomodate Melissa's eventual maternity leave. So it ended only 1 short of its expected finale/ full season.

I think since they reworked the finale, as Jon Cryer eluded to previously, and it was later determined this would be the final season, they decided they would make the most of Lex. It may also allowed then to focus on a Lena/Lex story with less Kara as she returned later than the others and I assume they filmed after-the-facts inserts on these early season episodes. Just my theory.

I was initially not thrilled that they cast Jon Cryer, as he was not age appropriate based on the flashbacks to the childhood of Lena/Lex. But, he really nailed it and Lillian's remark of how the Cancer had aged him, made it plausible... sorta.

Anyway, I personally think more Lex is a bonus, although many will likely disagree. I still think Jordan is the byproduct of Lex manipulating the events of Crisis and he will somewhat be the Conner of S&L, son of both Lex and Clark. So maybe they will transition Lex to S&L for next season.

Anyway, if the early episodes, after the premiere that was mostly filmed pre-Covid, are Melissa lite, I can think of no better focus than the Luthors and the young Danvers sisters.

It sounds like there is a natural break that was created for the hiatus after episode 7.

Regarding some specifics form this synopsis.Lena went pretty damn far to stop Lex at the end of season 4 aka killing him.So what could be beyond that?

A lot of fascinating if vague teases in this synopsis

Well, if Jesse Warn is directing, it's likely to be action-packed! Looking forward to the ep, as always.
