O Brother, Where Art Thou Synopsis

Lex Luthor is coming to town! We are so excited to see Lex Luthor on the show and how he is going to interact with Lena! Will the Luthors battle it out or will they team up for something unknown? Your guess is as good as ours. But that doesn't seem to be the only person coming to National City, finally James' sister is going to make an appearance! You might remember that Azie Tesfai was cast in the roll of Kelly. Supergirl and J'onn will be battling it out yet again with Manchester as well! Possibly the most interesting part of this is how Lex gets to go see Lena! Check it out for yourself in the synopsis below:

JON CRYER GUEST STARS AS ICONIC DC COMICS’ VILLAIN LEX LUTHOR —Secretly furloughed from prison due to failing health, Lex Luthor (guest star Jon Cryer) visits his sister, Lena (Katie McGrath), to seek her help finding a cure. Savvy as ever, Lena is suspicious of Lex’s motives but when she’s faced with a life and death situation, she must decide how she truly feels about her brother. Meanwhile, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and J’onn (David Harewood) face off against Manchester Black (guest star David Ajala). James’ sister Kelly (guest star Azie Tesfai) comes to town. Tawnia Mckiernan directed the episode written by Derek Simon & Nicki Holcomb (#415). Original airdate 3/17/2019.

Having Lena “turn evil” would be the least imaginative thing the show could do, .


No, bringing in an old cliche like LexLuthor is much more unimaginative.

My guess is he uses That Super serum to save himself, gets powers and becomes one of the big bads for season 5. Or if we are lucky he won’t, and will just die.

Melissa’s words in that interview were clearly chosen in order to draw people in and string people along. I’m always surprised when people fall for stuff like that, but I admit I’m older and have seen that sort of publicity play out over and over again.

Oh yes! As time goes on, I've learned to seldom trust the actors dropping hints of what's to come. And never under any circumstances take what a showrunner says at face value. :lol:

They aren't being evil, they are just introducing doubt and misdirection to preserve the surprise. All part of the game.


Agree. The truth is none of us knows where this is headed, regardless of what Melissa or anyone else says. Some want Lena to go evil. Fine. Some want her to be good. Fine. Some (like me) prefer her conflicted; gray, if you will. Also fine. It should be an interesting ride in any case, so I just plan on enjoying it regardless of the outcome.

I feel like its only those that want Kara and Lena to date that don’t want her evil. But the thing is even if she was all good that pairing would never happen anyway.



I’m sorry, but this is just ridiculous. People can’t want/enjoy a friendship being portrayed without wanting it to become a relationship? Pretty insulting, really.

Having Lena “turn evil” would be the least imaginative thing the show could do, and while I can’t exactly praise the writing lately, I don’t think they’ve fallen that far yet.

"I really wanted Kara and Lena to stay close friends, like they always were in the Silver Age comics.. :( "

"For Lena I think I remember that in comics she went through a super bad phase with her brother before becoming a good person again. "

Perhaps in one of the later storylines. In the Silver Age and Bronze Age DC Comics, she was always a "good guy", a friend to Supergirl and Superman (who tried very hard to keep her from finding out that Lex was her brother).

I more or less lost track of what was happening in the world of comic books after I graduated from college in the 70s (though I did see most of the superhero movies and watched "Smallville".)

I had listened to her interview about her relationship with Lena. She talks about Lex and Clark's relationship on Smallville, that they were friends before becoming ennemies. She said the reveal will be a slow burn. So, it seems that it might go a certain way but we might still be suprised. Melissa was carefully choosing her words not to spoil anything.

it is possible that Kelly helps Alex recover his memory or at least understand that part of it has been erased and become an ally against the colonel.

For Lena I think I remember that in comics she went through a super bad phase with her brother before becoming a good person again.

With her serum it is she who could give his powers to Manchester Black.

I wonder when they are going to feature the Rooski Melissa. I hope it's not after the Finale.


Melissa herself has said there's a Red Daughter centered episode to come, I'm thinking it will be either Episode 16 or 17. https://twitter.com/Fandomopolis/status/1099458617017753600

As for this Episode 15, I am looking forward to seeing what Jon Cryer does with Lex Luthor. Hoping though that the episode is not going to be too Luthor siblings dominant, still need my fill of Kara/Supergirl.
