Prom Again Synopsis

Well this is the episode we've been waiting for! We think we even broke the news at comic con 2019 that Chyler Leigh would be directing an episode in season 6, now the time has come to finally watch it! Best of all, it features our younger versions of Kara and Alex that we all seemed to love from the episode "Midvale"! The episode will be the second part of the flashback episodes and is titled "Prom Again". There are a few things that stand out in the synopsis to us, the first is that this episode features the first time that Kara experiences Kryptonite Poisoning, and Cat Grant might play a huge role in keeping Kara in the Phantom Zone! Reach the full synopsis below:

CHYLER LEIGH MAKES HER DIRECTORIAL DEBUT – Part two of the flashback episodes pick up where things left off – Young Kara (guest star Izabela Vidovic) experiences kryptonite for the first time, Nia (Nicole Maines) and Brainy (Jesse Rath) are trapped by invading aliens, and a young Cat Grant (guest star Eliza Helm) may be the reason Supergirl never gets out of the Phantom Zone. Chyler Leigh directed the episode written by Rob Wright & Jess Kardos (#606). Original airdate 5/4/2021

Lol. I've had the MST3K theme song in my head for 2 days, and this quote is not helping!

Kara's childhood in Earth-Prime is not and cannot be the childhood she experienced in Earth-38. However, it is the childhood Alex experienced. Unless it isn't, because J'onn's space magic could somehow "restore" memories that were never there in her mind to begin with.



Yeah, if you think about to much, you'll get a headache and which Alex's childhood is the correct one for Earth Prime?

In Elseworlds we did have a Earth-1 Alex. The new Earth-Prime is a composite of various Earths, including both Earth-1 and Earth-38, which each had an Alex. I think any continuity issues between Supergirl pre-Crisis and Supergirl post-Crisis can be dismissed due to the circumstances that created the new Earth Prime reality.

Well, thank you both for clearing that up but you lost me at the grocery store. :eek:


Just hang a right on aisle 2 and follow the signs.

****

Wise words, my friend, but when (non) continuity and (il) logic are concerned with the show, a stiff drink or three, some sedatives, and seatbelts are needed.

Enjoy the ride and make sure to pack a spare pair of briefs or two for the rollercoaster drops the writers tend to subject us to. It'll definitely be a trip to the finish line. ;-)

The writers' worrying about timeline continuity is probably very minimal. Look at how many times they've changed how long Kara's been on Earth. Their grasp on their own continuity was tenuous, at best, before Crisis. Post Crisis? Kara's past in the history of "Earth Prime" is completely up in the air.

It is what it is.

In Earth-38 "Midvale," Cat Grant is already established enough to have memoir, Nine Lives and Counting. Now, Earth Prime's "Prom" episodes, set after that, have her still establishing herself as "CJ."

Kara's childhood in Earth-Prime is not and cannot be the childhood she experienced in Earth-38. However, it is the childhood Alex experienced. Unless it isn't, because J'onn's space magic could somehow "restore" memories that were never there in her mind to begin with.

Earth-38 Lex Luthor is a supervillain. Earth Prime Lex was always looked on as a hero.

The number of differences between the memories of Earth-38 people and Earth Prime people would be staggering. Barry, Kara, and the others would at times be tripped up by events that never happened or happened very differently involving their respective Earth Prime counterparts before they "woke up" in the timeline. They effectively inherited the past decisions of their dopplegangers. (What happened to those original Earth-Prime versions of the paragons, by they way? Were they simply obliterated so the Earth-1 and Earth-38 versions could continue, trapped in a world they never made? Seems harsh.)

It all falls apart when subjected to any kind of analysis. With Supergirl in particular, timelines and history are pretty much meaningless.

It's a shame that price we pay for following the show is literally abandoning any sense of continuity, but that's where we are.

Repeat to yourself, "It's just a show. I should really just relax."

You know kdogg87 you probably are right - so many changes took place Post crisis - in a way the history of the show was rewritten -However, it is the last season , I too would be like them and concentrate on having it be an excellent one - even if it does throw the history timeline off. I am sure this will not be the last discrepancy that shows up but if I get alot of Melissa and Chyler - I will be a happy camper. :-)

One other thing I wonder is that the synopsis states that this will be the first time that Kara experiences Kryptonite which will be interesting to see - however she probably just feels the effect without seeing the mineral or she may even see the mineral but just does not know what is - so, Brainy and Nia would need to remember not to mention its name around Kara or the fact that it specifically weakens Kryptonians because that would change historical fact since teenage Kara at that point in time is not aware of those facts and doesn't become aware of them until she is shot by the DEO with Kryptonite darts. The reason I state this is because - Kryptonite (which was named that by J'onn - The Adventures of SuperGirl - Season 2, Episode 1 [23:21 - 24:20]) was something that Kara did not know the name of or that it specially weakens Kryptonians until she was in the DEO (conversation between SuperGirl and Alex - "Stronger Together", Season 1, Episode 2 [14:17-14:40]) in which Alex and Supergirl are sparring and Alex brings SuperGirl down on the first punch and Supergirl starts by saying - "How did you do that?" "Kryptonite emitters, they are only at 18%, not enough to permanently harm you but enough to weaken you and make this a fair fight," "I just found out last week that Kryptonite exist - only the DEO knows that it can hurt me."

This is the last time we get to see new episodes with Melissa and her absence in future episodes is not successfully filled by episodes based only on her team members.
Kara will be out of the Phantom Zone by the end of episode seven at the latest. After that Melissa was/is back with the rest of the cast. There's no reason to think Melissa will be absent for any part of episodes 8-20.



Total agree. It is my hopes that no episode is 100% Melissa free and we get these clever PZ inserts until episode 8. They are a most excellent story device.
