The fourth episode of Supergirl's fifth season welcomes Jay Faerber as a writer. He is partnered with Jess Kardos on this episode. As we've reported earlier in the synopsis, this episode's description starts out by stating "Saying Goodbye is Hard to Do". Judging by the photos below, this could be Mehcad Brooks' last episode. Of course, Kelly and James are in hiding until Supergirl can capture J'onn's brother and with the whole gang back together at the bar, does this mean Ma'alefa'ak is done for? Check out the images below:

What if they are hitting on Ma'alefa'ak so hard and fast these early episodes because it is Crisis related. For example, what if J’onn needs the ability to incept ideas into people to fight the Crisis coming and the Monitor, a kind of neutral character, knows J’onn needs this ability from his brother and is the reason why he brought him back from the Phantom Zone. what if J’onn needs to incept an “escape idea” into the Earth’s entire population so they can survive.


If thats the case, then we are once again, sidelining Supergirl for another Superhero....so I hope that he isn't that important in the crossover.

Exactly for those who aren’t liking the Martian storyline think of it as this shows lead-in to CoIE. IMO we needed the background we’ve gotten for it to make sense. The admins theory is most likely but here’s another. Kara helps Ma'alefa'ak forgive J’onn and he fights alongside the heroes but dies in CoIE.


I'm not sure that its just me not liking the Martian storyline, as much as it seems that what we have seen thus far could have been done in one episode rather than what seems to me as a retelling of the same thing each episode. I get it I get the connection.....but seeing Jonn on the floor every episode because some kind of mind hurt thing is getting old. So I guess in short, the background you are talking, in my humble opinion, could have been taken care of in one episode. Its like they are telling it every episode, just in a little different way. I GET IT.......I GET IT....... LOL

Did anyone notice how Blaxk Lightning's new suit is nano based liked Kara's?

I really hope we see crossovers outside of Crisis. Other than a Supergirl/Batwoman World's Finist, I'd really like to see Supergirl visit Blank Lightning. It would be cool if Gambi and Lillian Luther share a past. I'd like to ship those two. I'd also like to see Legends travel back to encounter young (teenage) Kara and Alex, assuming the merge happens.

It will be how the Martians story fits into Crisis on Infinite Earths. Also, as we saw on Arrow, there are groups aware of the impending Crisis. I assume on Earth 38, Leviathan is in the know. They saw Lex as vital to their agenda positioning and I assume that was Crisis related as Monitor came and swooped up Lex. That can't be coincidental. Surely, Flash is going to update Supergirl on Crisis or so you'd think. I hope we see the connection (s) soon and it's not going to wait until the actual Crisis event.

I feel it would make sense for Kelly to find out that Kara is Supergirl in this episode. I would like Kara to talk with Kelly from time to time. I feel Kara has the weight of the world on her shoulder. Maybe Kelly could also give some advice to Kara on how to avoid losing herself in her friendship with Lena.

The pictures are really great and Melissa looks very attractive in the last picture.
Despite some of the flaws in the show, I have to say that I love this show and its the
best thing on Sunday night.

I might be an oddball here but I'm very much anticipating CoIE, and so far on "Supergirl" I don't see any clear connection or lead-in to CoIE yet except for Ma'alefa'ak's existence because the Monitor brought him in to Earth 38. Unlike on Flash and Arrow (the latter's been suprisingly pleasant on it's first episode this season), they're already focused on the Crisis (Flash to a lesser degree than Arrow).

Everyone on "Supergirl" is still "blissfully" ignorant of what's to come (the episodes still delve on to the characters' own issues). I guess for some fans who don't really care much about CoIE, that is a good thing for as long as it takes, but I think the obvious connection to CoIE will start when the Monitor shows up (LaMonica Garrett tweeted a picture of him as the Monitor at the DEO set weeks ago). I personally can't wait for "Supergirl" to start tell stories related to CoIE.

*****
Everything since the start of the season up to December and beyond in all of the CW's Berlantiverse shows is/are COIE-related.

But to address your theory, it's quite plausible and a likely candidate for application. If they start going into pocket universes to escape the anti-Monitor, it's a strong likelihood that inception will have something to do with it.

Nonetheless, it's certainly something to chew on as we await the oncoming runaway train called COIE. 8)
