The CW is the place to be on the small display screen in terms of superhero motion, and the community in midseason 2018 will see no fewer than 5 superhero exhibits on the airwaves. Sadly, the addition of Black Lightning to the superhero lineup has meant that Supergirl misplaced its place in primetime for some time. A scheduling switcheroo is going down that can see Legends of Tomorrow moved into Supergirl‘s common Monday slot, with The Flash and Black Lightning on Tuesdays and Arrow staying placed on Thursdays. Supergirl will return to The CW on Monday, April 16 at eight p.m. ET.
The April 16 return of Supergirl implies that the Lady of Metal will likely be off the air for greater than two months, except she turns up on Earth-1 for a cameo. Earth-38 has cameoed on The Flash in the past, and it isn’t out of the query for Kara or certainly one of her friends to show up on certainly one of The CW’s different superhero exhibits, however we undoubtedly should not rely on seeing extra of the Supergirl characters apart from trailers till April 16. Till then, we are able to solely wait and speculate about what’s to come back.
The excellent news is that there is lots to invest about throughout the subsequent two months. Supergirl has spent nearly all of Season three constructing the thriller of Reign whilst Kara and the D.E.O. attempt to hold a deal with on the common wild baddies who pop up in Nationwide Metropolis. Throw within the drama courtesy of Mon-El, the Legion of Tremendous-Heroes, and Alex’s emotional upheaval, and type of lots has been taking place. As of the latest episode, Kara and Co. could also be in probably the most hazard they have been in because the present started.
As a Worldkiller, Reign was already arguably Kara’s most harmful foe over the sequence so far. The Lady of Metal has been outmatched in her showdowns in opposition to simply the one Worldkiller to date, and the one massive win the nice guys acquired over Reign to date took the united efforts of Kara, Martian Manhunter, and the Legion of Tremendous-Heroes. The very dangerous information is that there are extra Worldkillers on the market, and Reign managed to get her palms on one other: Purity. Though Purity was decided to not be changed into a villainess, Reign hasn’t failed at a lot but. If Reign turns Purity and recruits the opposite Worldkillers who’re nonetheless on the market, the nice guys of Nationwide Metropolis won’t stand an opportunity.
The most important variable at this level is Lena Luthor. On the finish of the newest episode, Lena witnessed the flash of pink in Sam’s eyes as she very practically transitioned into her Reign persona. As an alternative of instantly deciding to trace down Supergirl and fill the D.E.O. in on the scenario, Lena informed Sam that she knew what was happening and he or she would care for Sam. Lena has been descending additional and additional into darkness in Season three; whereas she nonetheless is not something approaching a real Supergirl villain, she is not precisely on the straight and slim. Lena and Reign could possibly be a really harmful mixture.
