Now that all of the secrets about the WorldKillers are out in the open, Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) faces a tough debriefing by J’onn (David Harewood), Alex (Chyler Leigh), the Legion and Kara (Melissa Benoist). But as this clips from tonight’s Supergirl reveals, Lena will stand firm on her choices, even if it drives a wedge between her and Supergirl.
Which means the episode will also be playing one of my favorite games: does Lena know Kara is Supergirl? Sometimes, it seems to be the case while at other points, it seems the show is maintaining this last vestige of Kara’s secret identity. Perhaps the issue will be addressed as Kara’s faith in Lena wavers. It would be impossible for her to pretend to be oblivious to Lena’s actions in order to maintain the pretense and, no doubt, Lena will also feel raw about being lied to by her best friend for so long. Hopefully, they will be able to work this and Lena will avoid, again, the destiny of Luthors.
Supergirl airs Mondays on The CW.
