Read the full synopsis below:

LENA MOVES FORWARD WITH NON NOCERE – Lex (guest star Jon Cryer) tasks Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) with protecting Andrea (Julie Gonzalo) from an anti-tech extremist, but his nefarious purpose goes beyond merely keeping Andrea alive.

This sounds like an epicenter type episode. It sounds great. I think when Lex betrays Lena, Supergirl will need to save the day and that may likely be a catalyst to Lena and Kara rebuilding their friendship.


What makes you think they would ever become friends again. Lena’s story always been a villain story in the making.



Kara is the Paragon of Hope. Lena's friendship has been an integral part of the show since her introduction in season 2. It seems a forgone conclusion that forgiveness and reconciliation will happen.


She is and so is Clark. I think its clear that Lena is a villain story in the making like Lex going back to what it was before would be a waste in good storyline. Here they can built on something new with Lena - a nemises for Kara she used to be friends with.

Ummm, so Kara's willingness to forgive is somehow a bad thing? Isn't that one of her traits that makes her a super hero? Without that quality (and others) she is merely omnipotent. But super? Not so much.


Even a superhero does not have to forgive immediately. It can take time and some actions can be difficult to forgive. I just hope that Lena works the right way to be forgive and regaining the confidence of Kara and the rest of the team more or less with difficulty the time of Five or six episodes in the background.

But even a superhero as sweet, caring, and kind as Kara can have a limit. I doubt that if a person kills a family member or a friend out of pure revenge, they can simply forgive. It's just my opinion.

That's what's super annoying with Kara. She always forgives and all too easily. She will forgive Lena and forget all of her mistakes in a second. I'm not sure what it would take for her not to forgive him.

I remember people hating on Mon-El for "taking over the show" and "taking away focus from the Danvers sisters". I 'm sorry, Lena is way, way, way worse. The show is being taken over by her, her brother, her stepmom, her friend from the past. At this point she has an entire army of supporting characters.

Just because a character can be entertaining like Lex doesn't mean their presence on the show can't be a poison. Especially when it starts feeling like the reason is mostly that they come off as entertaining *in comparison*, which is usually just a sign that the writers have stopped writing their leads in an entertaining way.

Romance has nothing to do with it. Characters can eat up the show even without that.

I would love nothing more if every single Luthor was shipped off to their own spinoff and gladly watch a show with only Kara, Alex, Martian Manhunter, Brainy and Nia.

I also remember the Monty haters from season 2. The haters were outraged with the way Monty treated Kara and were near death when Kara and Monty fell in love and became Karamel. But at least the focus was on Kara and not a variety of other characters. You had James,Winn and Lena playing interesting supporting characters. And the sisters had plenty of scenes together which were great.


Yeah... Mon-el was a jerk initially in season 2. But his character evolved and the chemistry between the actors was apparent. I actually came to like him by the end of the season. His return in season 3 was bad... it was definitely time for him to go. I do think they are destined to be reunited but it should be when the show comes to an end.

This statement should be tattooed on the foreheads of the Arrowverse writing staff, as this is an all too common issue.

Kara can’t quit right now because Lex has leverage over her in the form of her secret identity. He could threaten to reveal it to the world if she quits. He actually could’ve cohered Alex to stay using the same leverage but he let her go because he believes it’s to his benefit. The sisters will always have each other’s backs. I think by the end of the season Kara won’t be working with the DEO anymore. It’s possible that the agency could go away all together.


I don't think there will be a DEO by the end of the season either.I know Leviathan on the show is different from the version currently in the comics but in the comics,Leviathan destroyed the DEO and every other major spy agency as their opening shot in the current Superman comic storyline.
