Midvale Episode Features New Kara & Alex

Supergirl is pulling an Arrow! If you don't get the reference let me explain. The show that started it all (Arrow) is famous for their flashbacks showing how Oliver became the man he is today. While Arrow likes to do this intermittently throughout a season, Supergirl is going to jump in head first with a flashback in episode 306! We'll get to see how, the best sisters on TV, acted when they were growing up together. Furthermore, the two will have to put aside their popularity asymmetry to solve a mystery at their high school!

According to Entertainment Weekly, taking over the lead character role as a younger teenaged version of Kara Danvers is actress Izabela Vidovic.

Of course that is only half of the equation! Supergirl.tv can independently confirm that an older yet still teenaged sister Alex Danvers will be played by actress Olivia Nikkanen, known from her roles on HBO's Boardwalk Empire and FX's The Americans.

Melissa Benoist spoke to EW about the episode and talked about how you'll get to see the evolution of the Danvers sisters:

You’ll get to see, through the way they interact, how their relationship started when Kara first came to Earth, how it grew, how it became so close and why they’re so close nowadays.

The episode is titled Midvale and is described as:

The Danvers sisters take a road trip to their childhood home of Midvale, where they relive a murder mystery from high school that shaped their relationship as we know it.

I recognized the building! its very same building was used in Smallville Tv to be used as Midvale High school for Supergirl Very clever! I know many of Smallville fans would get kick out of this one once we get to see it on tv this Nov 13! I can't wait! Its been a while since I stopped watching Smallville back in first half of Season 8. It make sense to recast Kara and Alex because of flashback story to their high school years. I had feeling this episode is gonna be very interesting!

Quoting Eire El:
Here are a few options that would not surprise me:

2. Supergirl in costume deals with a problem and brings Alex along that causes the two to remember the past.

4. The Superman III option, Supergirl receives local award for saving local school student. Then stays on as Kara to reminisce.


A couple of good options Eire El. Hope you're right on at least one of these so we can get some Supergirl time even if it's just a couple of minutes at the start of the episode.

Here are a few options that would not surprise me:

1. Journalist Kara sent to Midvale for a story and avails of the opportunity bringing Alex along.

2. Supergirl in costume deals with a problem and brings Alex along that causes the two to remember the past.

3. Alex point 2 vice versa.

4. The Superman III option, Supergirl receives local award for saving local school student. Then stays on as Kara to reminisce.

I wonder if 'Midvale' will be the 1st Supergirl episode without Supergirl (Melissa in costume) actually in it.


Wouldn't surprise me. On Lois and Clark the 90s show when Clark and Lois visited smallville for the first time on the show. Clark wasn't Superman in the episode.

Young Alex looks perfect.

I wonder if 'Midvale' will be the 1st Supergirl episode without Supergirl (Melissa in costume) actually in it. The way I read it is the whole episode will be Kara and Alex back at their childhood home with a lot of flashbacks to High School. Sure we'll probably see Kara secretly use her powers to help solve the murder mystery but it's not quite the same as watching Melissa in costume as Supergirl. Will still enjoy watching the episode though but it will feel a little strange if there is no Supergirl moments which is what gives me the greatest joy from the show.

But perhaps she is Supergirl in the start in National City and not her again for the rest.

Could it be related to Rick Malverne's father? Perhaps the reason he is in jail?

Quoting Triggy:

I hope the mystery will be related to the season story arc, too.

Quite the similarity, good choices

This building is the same one that was used in the CW DCTV show Smallville.

Does the exterior for 'Midvale High' seem a bit familiar to anyone?
