Supergirl Faces The Toughest Choice In A Preview Of Next Week’s Season Finale

by Erik Amaya


Supergirl is finally set to call it quits on Season 3. But to do so, Kara (Melissa Benoist) must defeat Reign (Odette Annable) in a decisive, final way. But as this preview of next week’s finale indicates, it may require the most difficult decision she’ll ever have to make: the choice to use lethal force.

All the little glimpses in the preview offer some interesting images. Brainiac 5 (Jesse Rath) is back, which fill my heart with glee. You may also see Mon-El (Chris Wood) splayed out on the floor of the Fortress of Sanctuary. Also, Kara’s mother Alura (Erica Durance) suggests going against her principles, which should convey the seriousness of the situation. Will Kara find a way to defeat Reign without killing her or will some convenient self-sacrifice win the day?

Curiously, this was always the interesting part of the struggle between them. Reign was an opponent Kara could never appeal to with her empathy. It always suggested Kara might have to break the One Rule, so it will be interesting to see how the show resolves this.

Supergirl airs Mondays on The CW.
