SEASON PREMIERE

Brainiac (Jesse Rath) lays close to death after trying to stop Lex (Jon Cryer)… So Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and team soar in to save him. But they first have to engage in an epic battle with Gamenmae (guest star Cara Buono).

After beating Leviathan, Supergirl turns her attention to Lex (Jon Cryer). He has used the Obsidian platform to brainwash half the world to love him and follow him at all costs, no matter what horrible things he does. (Ed: sounds a bit familiar!!)

Knowing how dangerous this makes her brother, Lena (Katie McGrath) enlists the entire team. That team is of course – Alex (Chyler Leigh), J’onn (David Harewood), Dreamer (Nicole Maines), Kelly (Azie Tesfai) and Brainiac. They are needed to help. However, Supergirl realizes that the only way to truly stop Lex is to sacrifice herself.

Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Robert Rovner & Jessica Queller and teleplay by Jay Faerber & Jess Kardos (#601).

Original airdate March 30th, 2021.
