All is not well in National City. As we left off in the previous episode, Superman (under some sort of mind control) attacked Kara as she prepared to face-off with Rhea to save Earth from becoming “New Daxam.” What’s the Girl of Steel’s next move?
On Supergirl Season 2 Episode 22, “Nevertheless, She Persisted,” Rhea’s plans to create New Daxam are moving at full force as Superman distracts Kara with an epic duel between the two Kryptonians. Who will win? Clark, probably, but Kara will surely get some help to come out on top to stop Rhea.
“I put all my chips on the Girl of Steel”
Cat Grant’s faith in Supergirl is always so endearing. She helped give Kara the strength to become Supergirl, and even though she (supposedly) doesn’t know Kara is this hero, she always stands up for the hero she helped to create. This final showdown between Rhea and Kara looks to be after her fight with Clark, so somehow/some way, Kara is going to come out on top and defeat him.
Never has Earth depending on Kara as much as they do now. In the preview season finale, Kara had to stop Non, yes, but he just had a device to make every human’s head explode. Rhea is invading with violence, and her people are willing to do whatever it takes to take over the Earth. It doesn’t seem like Kara’s earlier description of Daxamites was very far off, regardless of what Mon-El says or does.
How will Lillian Luthor play into this? Probably not at all. Team Supergirl isn’t going to make the same mistake and allow her to help, so Cadmus will probably go off on their own and start killing Daxamites, or capturing them for experiments. Is Cadmus really a worthy villain for another season? The bond between Lillian and Lena, or lack thereof, is always interesting, and seeing as we’ll be seeing much more of Lena next season, perhaps that can be explored more. For being introduced in Season 1, Cadmus is surely drawing out their time on Supergirl, and that’s probably not a good thing. Villains grow old, fast.
Anyways, bless! Cat Grant is still around, and it seems she might be sticking around for much more of Season 3. Calista Flockhart, bless you!
What do you think of the preview? Are you looking forward to these battles? The return of Cadmus? Let us know in the comments below!
