The CW has released a preview for Supergirl’s two-hour series finale, which will air on Tuesday, November 9 from 8/7c. The finale event will consist of two episodes, “The Last Gauntlet” and “Kara”, and will feature both a major showdown between Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) and Nyxly (Peta Sergeant) as well as the wedding between Alex Danvers and (Chyler Leigh) and Kelly Olsen (Asia Tesfai). The event will also see several familiar faces from the series return, including Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott and Chris Wood as Mon-El.
The first hour, “The Final Gauntlet,” will see Supergirl and her friends come together to rescue a loved one, specifically Alex and Kelly’s daughter, Esme, who kidnapped Lex and Nyxly after discovering she was the new love totem. The second hour, “Kara,” will see the wedding, as well as a final push to take Lex and Nyxly down for good.
“There are so many special things about the season,” co-showrunner Jessica Queller told ComicBook.com earlier this year. “I could talk about it for another 10 minutes, but some of the things that make a lot of sense to us is that we always like to tell stories that reflect what’s going on in real life. We’ve focused some episodes on social justice that really come largely out of the Black Lives Matter movements and last summer’s events and have the same themes that I think mean so much to us, to all of us in the writer’s room, to be able to talk about inclusion and equality and stuff , values that are important to us.
She continued: “And also, there’s just a very satisfying arc for Kara Danvers/Supergirl dealing with her at the beginning of the season 1 pilot episode. You know, as some insecure, bumbling young girl with big eyes to becoming a very mature, integrated, authentic hero of the people.”
