I don't find fault in anyone's "fanon", but IMO, if Reign is lost because of a mental battle between her and Sam and Sam wins out, then 2 things happen. 1. You lose, and IMO disrespect one of "Supergirl's" premiere villains in today's comics and 2. You then have a character that has less to do in this series than James and Lena. Two characters that suffer greatly from lack of story line.

I agree, Sam is very likable and a great character in that we have watched the rise of Reign within her. But, people need to be clear on something...."Reign" was why Odette got the job, Sam was the tool to bring the drama, empathy and down right gut wrenching pain when Reign wins out in the end. Without "Reign" Sam would simply be another "what the heck do we do with this person" character. I think they are seeing that with Lena, in that she is a Luthor....SO USE THAT angst, inner conflict, etc. I think we will be seeing that in the near future.

I have loved having Odette on the show, both as Sam and as Reign. She's a very good actress and sells her character(s) well. While I enjoy having her as Sam, I think that Reign is too good as a villain to get rid of. Isn't it interesting that Sam's arc took 8 episodes to establish but, Reign got everyone on board in about 15 minutes worth of screen time :lol: . That should be a big ole' sign to the writers and EPs in what they have in the character.

I wish there was some way to keep Odette as Sam, too but, if I had to choose which to keep around, Reign would be the sure choice for me. And sorry to say, but if they could split the character in some way - I would gladly exchange Sam for a couple of other characters that are currently in place on the show.

Well if people like Sam they could still hope for an ending where Sam can be saved and she and Ruby get to ride off into the sunset, without still being regulars next season. Just as a happier end to her story and with the potential that she could come back to help out maybe one day.

I have my doubts personally, but I can't fault fans rooting for it. I have to say though, I find Odette a lot more interesting than "Sam". Sam is nice but not that interesting. I think Odette is much more mesmerizing as Reign.

I'd miss Odette too. But, I am hoping we will get Reign once or twice every season like Livewire.

Retaining Sam and Ruby post this season would make the show have too many regulars; which wouldn't work if it doesn't off some of the original regulars and I don't want the original regulars to go.

Let us hope Odette gets a cool show of her own, which we all can watch.

My Reign problem is, I didn't realize I'd love Odette so much. So while I want the Greek tragedy, I don't want to lose the actress.


But think about it, once she was no longer Reign what purpose would she serve in the show? Another friend? Kara has plenty of friends.

Let’s give the much maligned writers some credit, along with great acting form Odette they have succeeded in making us love Sam. That was exactly the plan, so we’re heartbroken when she goes evil. Supergirl can most definitely try to redeem her friend, I think that’s an important lesson for Kara that she can’t always save people from themselves. But as I’ve said before in the end I want unequivocally evil and unredeemable Reign. Anything else is a waste of this great Supergirl only villain. Totally agree with Kelly, Sam has no purpose after this season.


Oh I absolutely agree with the both of y'all. It would feel less authentic if Reign AND Sam weren't destroyed/sent off world. I'll just really really miss Odette.

I don't mind if the fortress is destroyed and the crazy lady in the fortress is destroyed....but I do not want Sam resurrected totally, I want Reign to be Reign, and I want Kara to not defeat her physically, but find a way to send her off world so that from we can see her again in later seasons.

Or, they could do something crazy where they somehow switch the DNA (evil) from Sam and it transfers into another villain and they become a Worldkiller (Reign) and they retreat for a time to come back later.

But, if not.....no to Sam and Reign separating and Reign no longer being alive in her.

I'm looking forward to this episode, but I hope there is something more in it than just a rehash of "For the girl who has everything".

I say this of love for the show, I don't intend on sounding pessimistic.
