Two-Hour Series Finale Of Supergirl Is COMINGGG!
The first hour titled “The Final Gauntlet” will see the return of Supergirl and her friends who will come together to rescue a loved one, Kelly and Alex’s daughter, Esme, who was kidnapped by Nyxly and Lex after it was found out that she was the new love totem. In the second hour of the event, “Kara” will see the wedding and the final push to take out Nyxly and Lex for good.
“There’s so many special things about the season,” co-showrunner Jessica Queller told ComicBook.com earlier this year. “I could spend another 10 minutes talking about it but some of the things that are very meaningful to us is we always like to tell stories that reflect what’s going on in real life. We have a bunch of social justice-focused episodes that really come out of largely the Black Lives Matter movements and the events of last summer and have those similar themes that I think mean so much to us, all of us in the writers room, to be able to talk about inclusion and equality and things, values that matter to us.
She added, “And also, just there’s a very satisfying arc for Kara Danvers/Supergirl having to do with her at the beginning of the Season 1 pilot episode. You know, like a sort of insecure, bumbling, wide-eyed young girl to becoming a very mature, integrated, authentic hero of the people.”
Here’s the synopsis for the two episodes:
