The House of L Synopsis

Lex Luthor's impact on Supergirl is going to be a lot bigger than just one episode! Today we have the official synopsis for episode 416. It is titled, "The House of L"! We love that title, very ominous! Jon Cryer will reprise his role of Lex Luthor in this episode. The show will feature several flashbacks that will show how Lex has been manipulating events in National City for two years slowly moving the chess pieces behind the scenes to his benefit! Read just what the synopsis has to say below:

LEX LUTHOR CONTINUES TO WREAK HAVOC — In the wake of Lex Luthor’s (guest star Jon Cryer) return, the show flashes back to what he’s been doing for the last two years and how his secret machinations and plans have affected Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and Lena (Katie McGrath). Carl Seaton directed the episode written by Dana Horgan & Eric Carrasco (#416). Original airdate 3/24/2019.

If that wasn't enough, you can check out the first footage of Jon Cryer's Lex Luthor over at Entertainment Weekly! Our first glance ... HE IS CHILLINGLY GOOD!

Sorry but using famous DC characters and hype factor to compensate for plot deficiencies is an old trick on this show now

Quoting KaraD:
Ouf! Really trying to say positive here but it seems like it will be like the Ben Lockwood origin story when Melissa was doing Broadway. Instead of the Lockwood story, they could have done the Lex story to make up for Melissa's absence. Lex is much more interesting than Lockwood...
We get two backstories on villains in one season while the one and only Kara backstory we had was Midvale, more than a year ago. I'm hoping that this one is not as flashback heavy and connects with present day Kara throughout.

I love Cryer and have no doubt that he will do a wonderful job. I am looking forward to seeing his scenes with Kara - will love watching his reaction to her and hers to him.

Since Kasnian Kara has only existed for a year, then I'm curious as to whether or not there is a connection with her and Lex as I originally thought. I hope so because the current story with Lockwood is getting a bit tedious.

Lex is coming the most iconic villain in comicbook history next to the Joker. DC is blessed and it sure looks like Cryer is gonna kill it as Lex Luthor. I really hope he Will be a regular recuring threat on the show. Lex is such a charismatic character and Cryer looks like he is soaking it all in with his perfomance here. Wow! Talk about hype

Aaaah, the plot thickens! (Like porridge) 8) ;-)

To go along with what RobertAnthony said, I also think the title of the episode is brilliant. The house of L : house of L (EL), house of L (Lena), house of L (Lex), house of L (Luthor), house of L (lunatics... ;) ) even house of L (Lockwood) (if he's still around by then but I hope not).

I must say, Mr. Cryer has put Two and a Half Men behind him. His Luthor is mad, evil with a little charisma...shades of Gene Hackman! A score from me whenever the Donner/Reeve films get mentioned.

And it sounds like Lena is regretting working with her brother...maybe a spoiler alert I gave.

And in the comments section of the EW article, one poster said

Quote:
And people thought he was wrong for the role. Just this short clip proves they are the ones who are wrong.
I was hoping he would work out...and in way, he is.

Quote:
I wouldn't be surprised if President Baker secretly joined forces with Lex to publicly expose Olivia Marsdin as an alien in order to remove her as the U.S. President so that he could take her place.
Omar, that would make Lex be Big Bad 1B to Agent Liberty's 1A so to speak.

And that title is quite clever...variation on a theme.

Ouf! Really trying to say positive here but it seems like it will be like the Ben Lockwood origin story when Melissa was doing Broadway. Instead of the Lockwood story, they could have done the Lex story to make up for Melissa's absence. Lex is much more interesting than Lockwood. But because he is coming late in the season, I don't have the same interest. I feel it will again take away the scenes from our girl of steel (although for the last 2 or 3 episodes, I can't complain about the amount of Kara/Supergirl we have been seeing). Let's hope I'm wrong and I get pleasantly suprised!

Man of Steel: Part Deux --for those thinking Supergirl has been overrepresented and way too effectual so far this season...

This may imply that Lex may in fact be directly responsible for the "Earth First" anti-alien movement.

I wouldn't be surprised if President Baker secretly joined forces with Lex to publicly expose Olivia Marsdin as an alien in order to remove her as the U.S. President so that he could take her place.
