One of the hardest things in creating a superhero show is figuring out how one can cap off the fall season with a bang. Most of the time, and especially in the case of freshman superhero show “Supergirl”, despite the challenge, showrunners and writers are able to pull it off. As the fall television season goes on break for the holidays, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg recently weighed in on what just transpired during the fall finale. Also, CBS has offered an exclusive sneak peek into what to expect next. WARNING: This article will contain spoilers for the fall finale of “Supergirl”, and for the upcoming episodes.
Starting from the episode before the fall finale, “Supergirl” has been dishing up some very interesting surprises for fans and viewers alike.
First, David Harewood’s Hank Henshaw was revealed to be Justice League founding member J’onn J’onnz, or the Martian Manhunter.
Afterwards, Kara Danvers or Kara Zor El, also known as Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), became confused after discovering that her mother, Alura Zor-El (Laura Benanti), had used her to imprison her eco-terrorist aunt and uncle, Astra Zor-El (Laura Benanti) and Non (Chris Vance).
Then, Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) confronted Kara regarding the fact that Kara is Supergirl, which was followed by a battle between the forces of Non and the Department of Extra-Normal Operations, with Supergirl as their champion.
According to a recent interview that executive producer Andrew Kreisberg had with Entertainment Weekly, the first episode of 2016 will pick up from where “Supergirl’s” fall finale left off. This means that fans and viewers will be treated to a fight scene as soon as “Supergirl” comes back on on January 4, 2016.
According to a report on TV Line, the upcoming episode will see Non negotiating to get his captured wife back, in exchange for Henshaw, whom he managed to capture during the battle.
Kreisberg, in his interview with Entertainment Weekly, also teased that the tenth episode will be centered on Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan), as he will have to deal with his father, the supervillain named the Toyman (Henry Czerny).
It was also teased that the ninth episode will deal with the fallout of Cat confronting Kara regarding her identity as Supergirl, which Kara will try to deny left and right.
Kreisberg also talked about the villains in the series, namely Astra, Non and Maxwell Lord (Peter Facinelli), and mentioned that their driving force is the same as Supergirl’s. All they want to do is to save the world. Only, they resort to violence, crime and force to do so.
He also noted that among the superhero shows that he has been handling, it is interesting to note that Supergirl has the most “public persona”, as compared to Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) Flash and Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) Green Arrow.
