Fear Knot Synopsis

Seven of seven! This is it, the final episode of Supergirl before the hiatus and the conclusion of The Phantom Zone story arc. On top of that, This is a David "Money" Harewood directed episode! While we never like hiatuses, this is a great way to go out on one. Whether this was planned from Melissa's pregnancy, planned because of the Superman and Lois covid scare, or simply serendipitous, fitting seven episodes into a contained period before a break is kind of perfect. We can almost view this as a season all to itself! We are very curious what team Supergirl will go through in the Phantom Zone, read the full synopsis below:

DAVID HAREWOOD DIRECTS – As the Super Friends brave the Phantom Zone to bring Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) home, each member of the team is confronted by visions of their worst fear. David Harewood directed the episode written by J. Holtham & Elle Lipson (#607). Original airdate 5/11/2021

It will be interesting to see what everyone’s worst fears are. J’onn’s would definitely involve fire. Alex maybe finding Kara died just before they get to her. Brainy’s could be becoming a villain without his inhibitors. Nia’s would involve someone dying because she misinterpreted a dream. I think they kinda foreshadowed Lena’s which would be Kara blaming her for Lex sending her to the PZ.

I hope the episode ends with a big homecoming party with potstickers just like Alex planned.


Melissa has said Kara will be dealing with trauma that will impact the remaining episodes.


Thank you Brierrose, that is good to know. I can honestly say that for right now, Season six is my second favorite season right after Season 1. Another thing that Melissa said in "Entertainment" was " I think that sisterhood is the bedrock of the show. There's no shortage of Kara and Alex moments this year, " This made me very happy. Last but not least, another article states "Meanwhile, Supergirl co-showrunner Jessica Queller has promised an "emotional" series finale for the show."

Adult Kara isn't in any stills for the next episode. It's not for sure, but there MAY be a possibility that we are putting the Phantom Zone plot aside during the young Danvers episodes.

If so, it'd be interesting to come back, in "Fear Knot", and explore adult Kara's condition. I mean, who knows how long her time in the Phantom Zone has been, to her on the inside. She definitely had a "loss of hope" look on her face, when saw her last shot in "Lost Souls". I know we want Kara to eventually be okay. But, to me, it would be really emotionally compelling to explore the trauma that the phantoms have put her through, since the tower Nyxly was in exploded. Like, if Alex or J'onn found her, and she thinks they are illusions, just as Zor-El thought Kara was an illusion. Perhaps with the PZ portal mirror destroyed, she has given up on escape, and upon finally escaping, needs some time.

Bottom line, I think it's important that Kara comes out of the other side of this, carrying those experiences and trauma with her, which can impact the rest of her season.

Okay, so they're going in to get her. And the phantoms are going to screw with their minds and put the fear of Satan into each one. They should find the courage to win out except for maybe Brainy who may fold under pressure. Sounds good to me.

Sounds like a very decent episode. Looking very forward to it! :-)

Is this the last episode before SG goes on hiatus until the summer ?

Interesting that the title is Feat Knot instead of Fear Not the different words give it different meanings, knot can mean a few different things. And it’s a short synopsis which means they’re leaving a lot out.

I was hoping Kara would be home by the end of this end of this episode and that seems like what’s happening. I wonder if everyone goes into the PZ to get Kara, from a tactical perspective it makes sense to have at least two people stay behind. I can see Kelly and M’gann staying behind to monitor things and serve as a backup rescue team.

I always thought Arrowverse should divide up the season into 2 or 3 mini arcs instead of one long one. I think this will work for me.


The Flash started doing this last season.Breaking the season up into graphic novels.
Sadly, the Flash's Mirrorverse arc or graphic novel just didn't work for me... but at least we didn't have it for 22 episodes.
