Back from the Future Part 1

Jeremy Jordan returns! We are very excited to have series original Winn Schott back for a couple of episodes. It sounds like his return will be perfectly timed when Kara starts to hunt down a Toyman copycat. Also, judging by the title this will be a multipart episode! If that wasn't enough, this is the episode that David "Money" Harwood directs! How much fun the cast must have had having David calling the shots and having Jeremy back on set! Check out the synopsis below:

JEREMY JORDAN RETURNS; DAVID HAREWOOD DIRECTS – As Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) tries to thwart a Toyman copycat, Winn Schott (guest star Jeremy Jordan) returns from the future. David Harewood directed the episode written by Dana Horgan & Katie Rose Rogers (#511). Original airdate 1/26/2020.

I call BS if they don't even mention Mon-El (even if it just to say he died in the future) considering Winn left with him. It seems kind of likely that Mon-El's exit was troublesome in some way behind the scenes, but the extent of him not being mentioned, considering the kind of connection he has to Winn and Brainy is just ridiculous. If they don't want to bring him back that's their choice but then they should still find a way to close the door to that in a sensible manner and give people some proper closure.

Anyway, I'd also love it Winn actually mentioned, you know, the other guy, James. I would love a callback to the original friendship trio from season 1.


I never really saw them as a trio, except in the episode "Solitude", I saw it more of Kara and Alex working together, and Winn helping out towards the end of the season, making them more the trio that headed into Season 2.

As far as Mon-el, there are rumors about on the twitterverse that Mon-el will be in Season 5 at some point, so who knows....maybe he comes back as well and they are just trying to keep that part of of it a secret.

I wonder what Winn will say when he sees SuperGirl in pants. :-)

I look forward to the ensuing "design discussion" with Brainy. :D

In the bottle episode to be shown on the 19th, - I wonder if the Crisis makes a different Brainy appear in present time and the original brainy is now back with MonEl and his team. Each needs to be back with their teams therefore MonEl's team sends our Brainy back to the present time with Winn and Winn will take the Future Brainy back to the future.

I wonder what Winn will say when he sees SuperGirl in pants. :-)

It’ll be nice to have Winn back for a couple of episodes. I wonder how many times David had to call “cut” because Melissa and Jeremy broke out in song.

Chris didn’t leave the show on bad terms, the cast and crew love him. It’s the character he played that has a I think complicated is a good word relationship with fans. Unfortunately some fans who don’t like the character took that out on Chris and I respect if he doesn’t want to do that again. That being said the synopsis doesn’t say that much. Chris has been seen with a beard again when he didn’t have one for the wedding. IMO there’s a greater than zero chance that Mon-El comes back for a visit too. Personally I’m fine either way. If he doesn’t appear I do think it would be odd if he isn’t mentioned at all but there’s an easy fix for that. Winn can simply say something like Mon-El’s in the middle of a mission in some far away galaxy. That’s simple, wouldn’t take long and won’t cause Kara distress. I think it would be cool if Winn gives Kara a letter from Mon-El. After Winn leaves we have a closing scene of Kara reading the letter and smiling but I don’t want the audience to see what he wrote, leave that to our imaginations. One thing I don’t want is for Mon-El to have died. I think that’s unnecessary and wouldn’t contribute anything Kara’s story, she’s had more than her share of grief.

This news is music to my ear. I have missed Wynn and look forward to his return. It's a shame that they can't bring Monty back for a few episodes. He must have left the show on bad terms otherwise he would have been included. I know that everyone loves the couch scenes with Kara and Alex. But to me, the best couch scenes and Alien bar scenes were between Kara and Monty. The show had a tv version of Hepburn and Tracy and didn't capitalize on it. Double Shame.

Bit weird Mon-El is not coming back since they both left together. Hope they give an explanation why Mon-El is not back with him.

I will be glad to see Winn again. Wonder how his time in the future has changed him. It's too bad James left so soon; they were a great double act.

If you're referring to this, it's a synopsis--a few short sentences to offer a capsule of the basic plot. I would not read much into it.

If you're referring to the show overall, I'd chalk not mentioning Mon-El down to two things:

1) In show: It's likely to be a sore point with Kara, "Hey, remember when you fell in love with Mon-El and he went to the future and got married and came back and almost got back together with you and then returned to the future with the guy who used to be your best friend? Good times." I can't imagine her circle would bring it up often.

2) Outside of show: Unless it's somewhat related to the current plot, writers in general won't focus on characters who have left. And when the characters standing in the fandom is--shall we say--complex, it is so much the harder to justify the time. I do think it's likely he will be mentioned this episode, assuming he does not appear in person.

Personally, I would be happy not seeing the character again. I like Chris Wood and think he did a great job. However, I think his character was poorly served, especially in the way his return was handled.

Sound like that it will be really interesting, also its great that Jeremy is returning, its a pity that he seems to be returning for only a couple of episodes, he has been one of the best supporting characters in the series, wish that he would be back a lot more regular.

Its going to be great having Winn back, and he's bringing Mon- El with him. I can't wait to see him and Brainy interact with each other


I don’t think Mon-El is coming back for this or any other scheduled episodes. At least it has not been even hinted at anywhere I can see.

I cannot WAIT for Winn to come back. He was a great bit of comic relief and always meshed so well with the others. Should be a fun couple of episodes (assuming the 1 has a part 2!)
