I said some of this in the recap article.

Despite ups and downs, I thought it was a solid finale. And that last 30 minutes or so really just left me feeling everything. Kara's sense of loss, being aimless. The wedding. Nia and Brainy. The last couch scene. Cat's return to give some long missed advice to Kara. Her acknowledgement of Kara's secret. Kara deciding to reveal herself. And especially the music choices in that last scene. It really drove home that this is the end, and that kinda sucked, lol. It did it's job, but it made me care about these characters more than I have in a very long time.

I'm glad they didn't kill Kara, or have her decide to stop being Supergirl, or send her to the future. She's still here. she's still Supergirl. It's just a new chapter.

My biggest complaint is probably the fact that it doesn't feel like an ending. It feels like a new chapter. One I wish we could explore in a 7th, non-COVID hindered season, so we could see this new dynamic, and also get that desired last crossover with The Flash, so they could have one final hurrah.

It's dumb, but this is gonna stick with me for a while. They stuck the landing, in the sense that they really made me care that it was over, and want it to NOT be over. I'm gonna mourn this show for a while. Both because it's over, and because, when we ended, it felt like Kara was the only character who wasn't in a place of happiness or contentment. It felt like everyone around her had a happy ending, and hers was left uncertain. And that's a strong ending, because it made me feel this way. But at the same time, the ending makes it seem like Kara is less sure of her place in the world than she ever has been. And I just don't know how I feel about ending it on that note...

In summation...it was a strong finale because of everything it made me feel. Could it have been better? Absolutely. But a show is doing it's job when it makes me feel something. And I felt a lot with this. I know she's got her book, family, and shorter brunette hair. But I sincerely hope Melissa returns for a guest spot in either The Flash or Superman & Lois (ideally both) so we can see where Kara's at after this finale.

I can't speak for anyone else. But this version of the character will always be my Supergirl. Thank you to Melissa Benoist for six wonderful years. I wish we had more, but I'm grateful for what we had.

The last scene with the game night and interview real did me in too ...in a good way.

I'm glad they didn't kill Kara, or have her decide to stop being Supergirl, or send her to the future. She's still here. she's still Supergirl. It's just a new chapter.


Same here.I so didn't want a downbeat ending.I didn't think they were going to kill Supergirl after Melissa's interview in the spring.But I was worried they would depower her or just have her not be Supergirl anymore.And ofcourse Supergirl leaving for the future or going to Argo,I didn't want because I didn't want to see Kara leave her loved ones,her family.I wanted to see Kara still with her sister.Being a aunt to her niece,having her friends still in her life and being at ease both being Kara & Supergirl.It's why I was hoping for the identity reveal because that is how they've been handling Clark/Superman in the comics fo the last two years.

This ending we got was the exact one I was hoping for.

My biggest complaint is probably the fact that it doesn't feel like an ending. It feels like a new chapter. One I wish we could explore in a 7th, non-COVID hindered season, so we could see this new dynamic, and also get that desired last crossover with The Flash, so they could have one final hurrah.


Agree,would love to have seen a 7th season exploring the new status quo especially since it's been explored very much with Superman in the comics for the last like two years.

With that said,I'm not sure they would of revealed Kara's identity if the series was continuing.It feels to me anyway like a decision that was based on the fact the series was ending.

I so wanted a final Flash team up too.But I honestly think we will see Kara back at some point down the line in a guest spot or crossover appearance.Melissa's EW.com interview really gave me a lot of hope.I got the impression that she really enjoyed doing the crossovers and interacting with the other Arrroverse leads.Once Melissa had time to recharge,I really do think we'll see Supergirl again in the Arrowverse.

It's dumb, but this is gonna stick with me for a while. They stuck the landing, in the sense that they really made me care that it was over, and want it to NOT be over. I'm gonna mourn this show for a while. Both because it's over, and because, when we ended, it felt like Kara was the only character who wasn't in a place of happiness or contentment.

But at the same time, the ending makes it seem like Kara is less sure of her place in the world than she ever has been. And I just don't know how I feel about ending it on that note...


I think she's in a place of contentment personallyBut I will say a great finale does make me want more.

In summation...it was a strong finale because of everything it made me feel. Could it have been better? Absolutely. But a show is doing it's job when it makes me feel something.

Same here,hope we see a guest spot somewhere down the line.

"This ending we got was the exact one I was hoping for."

It sure was, but actually even better than what I had suggested. Kara didn't just "turn the lights off" at CatCo (like Dennis Franz in the "NYPD Blue" series finale) - she moved up to the editor-in-chief position (at the age of 30)! Kara didn't hang up her cape, either - she took off her glasses for the last time (as some others here predicted she might). So Supergirl is still in National City, along with her Superfriends and her family. And she even gets to continue being Aunt Kara to Esme!

" think she's in a place of contentment personally"

That's what I think, too. Melissa's facial expression in the final frames (after she made the decision to "come out" to the world) certainly seems to indicate that to me.

"But I will say a great finale does make me want more."

Yes, indeed!

Anyway, I am going to try to write some of that "next chapter" myself, and pick up Kara's story where the CW left off. And I will be posting links to my forthcoming fan-fiction stories here in the Forum. (But I'm not going to have so many Superfriends, and will add a couple of my own original characters to the mix.)

From the people at Superman Homepage, in another unscientific poll the question "Should Supergirl make an appearance in Season 2 of 'Superman & Lois'"? SURVEY SAID...

With “Supergirl” now over, fans want to see Kara make an appearance in Season 2 of “Superman & Lois” with nearly half of you voting “Yes, definitely!” for this poll. Interestingly, 17% of you are adamant that you do NOT want Supergirl to show up on “Superman & Lois”.


Full results here.

Performer of the Week: Kelly Reilly

By Team TVLine / November 13 2021, 7

https://tvline.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/SPGMelissaBenoist.jpg

HONORABLE MENTION | If Melissa Benoist is going to do one thing as Supergirl, it’s make you feel like you can change the world, and that was never more apparent than in the Arrowverse show’s heartfelt series finale. Benoist didn’t just deliver for the last episode; she brought the whole Amazon warehouse. Supergirl’s packed sendoff asked a lot of Benoist, who was tasked with action-heavy battle scenes, delivering a game-changing speech that would inspire humans to save themselves, singing with a live band, conveying the Kryptonian’s vulnerability in revealing her secret identity to the world and leaving us with a relaxed Kara after going through what was probably an emotional gauntlet. Sometimes, you can tell when an actor is ready to leave, and their performance feels phoned in. However, Benoist was the antithesis of that and gave fans the proper closure they deserved.

How Supergirl's final season failed the Maid of Might

https://www.digitalspy.com/tv/ustv/a38262722/supergirl-season-6-kara-danvers/

First a big shout out to you comic fan, for all the good stuff that you have posted these past several years.:)
This article pretty much confirms what most of us knew after season 3. I will never understand why in the final season they didn't change course and focus totally on Melissa. I know that everyone had to sign off to what was going to air but when you have to many hands in the soup it will always come out sour. They would rather tie up the loose ends and kick supergirl to the curb. Season six was a disgrace but the cool aide crowd seemed to be okay with it. Now with this mess behind her, my hope is that her career skyrockets.

I thought it was also interesting in the Jay Faerbe video interview below that he revealed they stopped doing a outline for the season after season 4.Season 5 & 6 had no season outline.From my understanding,this is unusual.

Yes indeed. But, from the pieces of info I've gathered over the years, the outlines stopped because during Season 3, when AK was dismissed, JQ and RR were required to take the helm of the project after Greg Berlanti and they had a huge conflab (this is why production was delayed a few weeks during S3) as to how to proceed from this point on.

From my understanding, AK had left enough residual material behind to carry through S3 and had an outline for S4 ready, which they used. S5 and S6 not having outlines makes sense since the showrunners either chose not to, couldn't/wouldn't make them, or they knew that the show was on the rocks at that point and they were out of their depth regarding making superhero shows.

Their primary task was to carry the show through to S5 and to deliver it up for COIE (...render unto Guggenheim) and merge the universes into one. They did that. Given the mess that S5 was, S6 was only really requested after Melissa and the brass agreed to close shop after the season by providing the actors with a swan song send off.
