Season 5 Finale Recap

OK, first of all, we know the countdown clock looks scary. It is only an estimate right now but unfortunately that is the wait we are looking at. Don't worry though, Supergirl.tv will be here to help you through the wait. We can also cover Superman and Lois here, let us know your thoughts on that in the comments below. Supergirl had some of their season finale filmed when quarantine started so that footage was added/edited so we are expecting a little more cohesive finale unlike the Flash for example. Did team Supergirl bring down Lex and Leviathan? Here's what stood out to us:

  1. Leviathan Visit: Lex starts the episode by walking into Leviathan's ship. He is clearly not welcomed there, but his presence is tolerated. We see there are more members of Leviathan. They are using rings to charge with Kryptonite which will kill Supergirl. Back at Kara's place, Lena and team discuss making an anti-Kryptonite suit. They need to get Kara to Lena's lab to make the suit but Rama Khan will sense her wherever they go. J'onn and M'gann shape shift to fool them. Alex reveals she has a new suit and Kara screams! So cute. We learn that Leviathan has another member that we haven't met that runs everything. The decoys seem to work and Kara and Lena get to her office but both teams fighting Leviathan are taking hits.
  2. Lena's Lab: Back at the lab, we learn that J'onn has been injured in the fight. Alex hears that William is missing. Alex tells Kara she and Kelly will handle it. Brainy summons his other form/real life sister. He is planning on going into Leviathan's ship to shrink the gods and in doing so, killing himself to protect his friends. Lex launches the world wide unity festival.
  3. Inside Obsidian Corp: Alex breaks Kelly into Obsidian. They are in the server room hoping to stop the world live event. Back at Lena's lab, Lena is desperate to get Kara back but Kara really lets her have it. Kara let's Lena know there is no absolution when it comes to her. William is captured by Eve and she is not in a good place. William knows she is trapped by Lex. He can read the situation and deduces that her mother is threatened. William gets shot but Supergirl and Lena arrive in time to close the wound with heat vision. Kara's power use summons the three Leviathan element wielders. Supergirl isn't doing well against the Kryptonite but her team arrives in time and she gets the suit on. She uses the thunder clap technique on them. Once they return from being vaporized, Supergirl knows she's got to retreat.
  4. Brainy's Gambit: Knowing the location of the Leviathan ship, Brainy heads to the ship. He hides behind the bar in the ship so they can't see him. Back at Lena's lab, Supergirl talks to Eve to learn Lex's plan. Dreamer reflects on her dreams and M'Gann heads to give her the pep talk she needs. Dreamer isn't ready to take her advice. Brainy in the ship begins to upload his shrink code. He has to take the pain of the ship for ten minutes without removing his hand. Supergirl and team jump into the festival. She needs to talk the people out of the virtual paradise of their own free will.
  5. Battle for Earth: Supergirl is in the system but her body is vulnerable. Lex suggests that Gemma send an assassin to kill Supergirl when she is in the system. This version of Andrea doesn't have the history like before because of Crisis. Supergirl starts to speak to everyone in the system at once. Being stuck in the system, the only one protecting Supergirl in the real world is Lena. Lena has to talk Andrea out of killing Supergirl. With three "I believe in you's" Supergirl saves the world, Lena saves Supergirl and Brainy uploads the shrink code.

In the final wrap up moments, Lex realizes what has happened. No longer connected to their ship, Leviathan is trapped and powerless. Lex arrives on the ship to find Brainy dying with Leviathan in his hands. Lex takes the bottle seemingly as he always intended. Dreamer dreams how Brainy saved everyone. She needs to go to him. Supergirl unites Tess with her mother. Supergirl and Lena finally say they're sorry. They choose to team up to stop Lex. Lex delivers Leviathan to his mother and they begin their work. Gemma burns off her human skin and is full robot now. We end with "to be continued".

Sounds like a good idea. Meadows can take the lead by creating a thread in the Forum and come up with a schedule.


I don't mind taking the lead at all, but I couldn't figure out how to start a new forum in the Forum. LOL!!


I'm happy to teach you that. Go into the Forum and at the top there's a Pencil Icon (Ask a Question) which you click on to start a thread. You'll see a question What is on your mind? which is where you put the title of the thread (something like Supergirl Season 1 Episode Re-watch Discussion), write some text in the space provided where it says "Please enter some contents for your question here" and then click Submit towards the bottom of the Page and your thread is created.

Give it a try anyway, if you would rather not I'll happily do it for you.

Yes, that worked perfectly! I thought that was actually for asking questions. I've set up a forum where we can begin re-watching Supergirl Season 1 on Sunday, May 31, and we will watch one episode of Season 1 each Sunday from that point until we've covered its 20 episodes. :)

I'm a huge Superman fan going back to when I was a child.Superman was my gateway to all the other comic characters I love.Superman was the first comic character I followed before it expanded to all the other comics I read now.

So I'm very excited about a new Superman show or Superman related show.

For Super fans,tv has been the gift that keeps on giving in the modern day.

Superboy/The Adventures of Superboy(1989-1992)
Lois & Clark:The New Adventures Of Superman(1993-1997)
Smallville(2001-2011)
Supergirl(2015- )
Krypton(2018-2019)
Superman & Lois (2021)

And you had the 1950's Superman show too.

The cool thing is,each series is very different from each other.They manage to find new spins for each series.Superman & Lois sounds nothing like previous Super shows which I like.

I think Superman and Lois will be a hit because of the following points that differ for SuperGirl:

1. Superman's relationship with Lois is accepted. Supergirl's relationship with anybody is always questioned and usually not favorably looked upon.

2. They will show the whole spectrum of the powers of the man of Steel - on SuperGirl we have to beg to see 2 -3 powers/season.

3. Superman's life with 2 teenage kids is accepted without question. Supergirl would have a mass number of unfavorable mail regarding her having kids which needless to say if her having a love life is not accepted then kids aren't even in question.

4. Superman's show will be centered mainly on him and his family. We have to fight to get
3-4 shows per season that center on Kara and her family.

So I think Superman will definitely be a success because the powers to be will make sure its a success.

I started a forum topic on this entitled: Do you think there is a difference between the way male Superheroes are treated compared to female super heroes?

To me the only potentially interesting character in the Superman show is the Super Baby. I'm hoping he can walk around and do baby talk when the show airs. I don't think there would be a show if not for Super Baby.
Then you're going to be disappointed S&L will be skipping the baby and kid phases entirely. Lois and Clark will have teenage twin sons.

So that's between the ages of 13 through 19. Let's hope for the thirteen year old age with one being a very good boy while the other is a very mischievous pain in the arse. Then maybe I'll watch. ;-)



Twins... One of the actors cast is 20, so I'm assuming high school students. One's a popular athlete type, the other is brain smart type. They sound a little Clark- and Lex- like to me. Since Lex helped form Earth Prime as a Paragon proxy in Crisis and the second boy didn't exist pre-Crisis, I can't help but think Lex is somehow behind the creation of the mysterious second child. Just speculation on my part obviously, but good CW-type drama.

I also wonder what the new start date for Supergirl Season 5 will mean for when the show will air from this point on. For example, The CW has moved the show day and time several times already. Will the show move to a better day and time than Sundays at 9 p.m.? That's not a great time slot.

I noticed that last night, The CW ran Supergirl right after the new Stargirl. If The CW keeps Supergirl in her new mid-season starting place behind Stargirl, after the other superhero shows have aired, that might work. I'm still not a fan at all of Sundays at 9 p.m., though.


I think Supergirl next season could feasibly be showing in any of the 12 available time-slots (Sunday to Friday 8pm and 9pm). It will probably depend on which shows (https://supergirl.tv/forum/cw-announces-2020-2021-plans) that start in January have shorter (say 13 episodes) seasons. A show like All American (Monday 8pm) which has had 2 16 episode seasons so far could possibly only have 13 episodes and when it finishes it run in say early May then Supergirl could be back on it's 1st 3 seasons time-slot. Then again shows like Penn and Teller and Whose Line is it Anyway? may only have 13 week runs meaning Supergirl could move to Friday night. If any of the shows have longer seasons (18-22 episodes) and the CW waits to show Supergirl till after they've finished screening the show may not be back till July or August.

There's a huge amount of unknowns though, most of all is when the shows are able to start filming again. I don't expect an announcement on when Supergirl Season 6 starts screening till about March or April next year and that's dependent on everything else starting on time in January which of course there are no guarantees of in the current environment.

I'm not a fan of covering Superman and Lois here, but if it does happen, it won't run me away from this site. I think our Girl of Steel is very deserving of her own fan page without having to share it with her "more famous cousin." How about a separate page for Superman and Lois?

I'm going to give that series a shot. I do wonder what The CW was thinking when they began it, though. From the first season of Supergirl on, writers have stressed that she shouldn't play second fiddle to Superman, and yet, here comes a new Superman television show.

I also wonder what the new start date for Supergirl Season 5 will mean for when the show will air from this point on. For example, The CW has moved the show day and time several times already. Will the show move to a better day and time than Sundays at 9 p.m.? That's not a great time slot.

And I agree that the CW should show Stargirl and Supergirl back to back in any time slot they want. It's a winning combination.
