At Least 1st 8 Episodes of S3 Uninterupted

Now that Supergirl is going into their third season, fans will remember how the schedule of a TV show works. Usually there is a big premiere which is followed by new episodes for a while until a first act break (generally around the first third of the season). This is because its not as profitable to run new episodes when you can do reruns of Christmas specials and so forth. That said, its always a question of how many episodes we'll get before the first break. We can confirm today that at least the first eight will be uninterrupted! This means that we'll have new episodes of Supergirl from October 9th through to the crossover on November 27th! Not a bad way to spend two months! As for new episodes after the crossover/after the holiday break, we aren't sure but going into a holiday break with the crossover like last year makes sense.

In other news, two decent sized spoilers were announced from Entertainment Weekly. We've added them to our spoilers page but when they are this big, they are already in the main stream. The first is the fate of Maggie Sawyer. While we still don't know what that ultimately is, we can report on what it isn't. Maggie Sawyer does not die, as confirmed here. Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg said:

Maggie does not die. I’m sure a lot of people are afraid of that. Maggie will continue to exist in the world and we hope that if the opportunity presents itself for her, that she’ll come back from time to time. Unfortunately, Floriana decided to move on, which left us with, how do we write her out as a regular while still honoring these two women who were deeply in love with each other? Taking a page out of some of our own personal dating history, we’ve come up with a story that we really feel like honors what’s come before them, and honors how much they love each other, how much they mean to each other, and how much they’ve changed each other’s lives. It’s some of the most emotional stuff we’ve ever done, and Floriana has been so good in these first five episodes. Episode 3 is all about Maggie and her dad, played by Carlos Bernard, and it’s some of the most heartbreaking stuff I’ve ever done on anything I’ve ever done.

The second spoiler comes from a Spoiler Room article also found on Entertainment Weekly. Kara and Lena will have many more adventures as the season begins. Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg said:

Lena and Kara’s friendship will continue to grow. There’s a lot of Lena-Kara adventures early on in this season. The most interesting thing about Lena is that she is so good, and so moral, and believes in second chances, but she comes from this family of truly evil people. As people are going to realize over the course of this season, it doesn’t take much to make you bad. People don’t just turn evil. They do one small bad thing and then that leads to another, and then to another, and so any time you’re watching Lena, you’re always wondering, ‘Is this the moment when she does the one small thing?'

In our eyes, both help give clues to how the season will unfold but don't provide details to the plot or hardships the Girl of Steel will face this season. Supergirl returns to The CW on October 9th at 8pm! Let us know what you think of these spoilers and if you plan on watching all the new episodes in a row like we'll be doing!

From ew.com's Spoiler room: (http://ew.com/tv/2017/08/31/spoiler-room-scoop-on-once-upon-a-time-supergirl-teen-wolf/)

Any Lena/Kara scoop for Supergirl? — Brianna

Following the events of the finale, as Kara pushes away her humanity, Lena will suffer guilt over her involvement in costing Kara her relationship. “While Lena’s feeling good that she helped saved the world, she feels very responsible that her best friend is hurting, and she’s trying to bring Kara back to the friendship that they had,” says Katie McGrath, who teases that Lena will do something very big in the premiere to try to rectify that.

Quoting sheriek:
I am happy about the 8 episodes in a row.

I am glad that they are not killing off Maggie but don't like the whole moving away for whatever reason storyline if they keep them together. I know they are in a difficult situation with Floriana leaving but that seems like cop out writing. Just re-cast Maggie or get Alex someone new. If the lesbian relationship is not shown on screen then it's not representation. And they can show the relationship without making it all about romance since it's not a soap opera.


The EW article this spoiler is from says that Greg Berlanti has promised they will continue to explore Alex's love life. So, Alex is not going to stop being visibly gay I guess. But, if season 3 brings her no new romance, it should be okay.

Anyways, I am hoping for the sisters reconnecting and more friends time.

Agree with all.
I'll be glad if the KD "was a mistake" story only lasts 1-3 episodes maximum, but whatever the results of this arc (and however long it goes) I hope it deals heavily with Kara and Alex's relationship above all others. I'm worried that tptb are focusing so much on developing Kara's new relationships, and writing Alex LI out and that once again we will have to go through a season of the sister relationship being sidelined.

Although I'm still holding out hope that Maxwell will be brought back to be one of the series long villains. Pair him up with Lillian and it would be very interesting.


Agree that I hope the sister relationship is not sidelined again. I also hope the Guardian character is not played up heavily this season but that James remains James through most of the season. I like the Guardian character as much as I like the MonEl character which is very little. Also, agree that Maxwell and Lillian would really make an interesting duo of evil.

I'm mostly suprised that this appears to indicate that Supergirl's "Kara Danvers was a mistake" phase doesn't last too long (maybe even less than one episodes) if Kara and Lena have adventures together.

I was kinda hoping that this might be a slightly longer conflict between Kara and Alex. I'd gladly trade Lena for more Kara/Alex scenes.

And this is an unpopular opinion but I find Lena overrated. She's too much of a repeat of Smallville but with lower quality writing and acting imo. And this will she/won't she go evil will (already has for me) get boring very fast, I think they should just let her be good. Let Lillian be the evil Luthor, she's a great villain for Kara, Alex, and Lena. Later on it would be great to bring in Lex for a short arc in the series.

I am pleased to hear about the uninterrupted schedule of shows. I think they will be able to give a plausible storyline where Maggie is "there" even if not on screen. As for Lena - I don't mind either way it goes and it will be fun to guess whether she turns. For me, as long as we have sufficient Danver sister moments, none or little of MonEl and we get into more SuperGirl adventures and Kara adventures, I will consider it a good season.


So we are doing what we want or not want now. I want scenes with Kara the most then Mon-El finally in his famous suit and see him fly too. I want hero saves as well them saving people. And little or none of Lena and Maggie would be nice


I agree with much of this, Kara above all and her saving ordinary people. I can take or leave Mon-el but would be happy to take him as a substitute for the Guardian. The less there is of the guardian the better. I'm not too interested in Lena and Maggie.

These are the powers that be on Supergirl you are referring to here. On the other hand if Floriana was meant to play Maggie and she had to move on to other endeavors, oh well.

Quote:
Also, turning Lena evil is to me lazy and unoriginal writing. If that's the route they are going then how long till Winn turns evil.
You win the prize...if I had one to offer. This would be very predictable. And if they decide to bring back Toyman, well that door is still locked and someone still has the key someplace.

Quote:
And also then Monel should continue to be a total jerk (which I think he still is but some people do think he's becoming a hero). I am hoping they are just saying this stuff about Lena as buildup for season 3 because of Lena's popularity and they continue the awesome female-female friendship between Kara and Lena. Beside Alex, all of Kara's friends are all male. They did mention Lena turning evil all last season and she didn't so maybe it's just hype.
Hype is usually made of words; and as the Bee Gees once sang in 1968, "It's only words."

Alas, that is not what uninterrupted meant - SIGH!

KEV-EL, I thought the exact same thing when I first read the title. LOL, glad to see I wasn't the only one.
