shoutout to m’gann m’orzz for showing everyone that where you come from doesn’t have to define the person you are. 

shoutout to m’gann m’orzz for proving that she is a hero time and time again without just going around and saying “i’m a hero now!” like other characters on the show.

'Supergirl': Calista Flockhart Returns for Season 3 Premiere, Will Recur

The Queen of Media is back!

Calista Flockhart will return as Cat Grant in the Supergirl season 3 premiere, new showrunners  Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner told reporters ahead of the Supergirl panel at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday. She is expected to recur on the CW drama in the new season.

“The way that Calista appears in the first episode is really clever,” star Melissa Benoist told reporters.

Flockhart was one of the original cast members when the Greg Berlanti-produced show aired on CBS; however, she took on a recurring guest-star role in season 2 when production moved to Vancouver in the wake of the show’s jump to The CW. She appeared in the first two episodes of season 2, which saw Cat decide it was time to move on from Cat-Co. In the finale, she made her triumphant return to National City to help Supergirl with the Daxamite invasion.

Supergirl returns Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.

My last SuperCorp crack of this season for your viewing pleasure.

Supergirl Season 2 Finale “Nevertheless, She Persisted” Episode Thoughts/Review:

1) MON EL HAS BEEN EJECTED INTO SPACE AND DISAPPEARED IN THE PHANTOM ZONE. My skin is clear, my life is in order

2) But seriously though, I’ve been waiting for this moment for months now. I don’t like seeing Kara unhappy but she’ll be better without dead weight tying her down.

3) SANVERS IS ENGAGED!!!

4) How cool is it that Winn and Lena finally get to work together? These nerds built the device that sent Monalow packing to outer space. I feel alive.

5) Rhea is dead!!! Mon el is gone!

6) Honestly, I was not the least bit surprised that Mon el didn’t trust Kara enough to win in the battle. That little speech of “oh you should let Superman fight for you”? It’s so demeaning to Kara, but as you know…Mon el doesn’t know what it means to actually respect women.

7) M’gann brought friends. Love her.

8) Honestly words cannot describe how much I missed Cat’s motivational speeches to Kara. Like…these are the relationships Kara needs in her life, not people who bring her down.

9) There was very little Lena/Kara interaction in this episode. The fact that Lena “doesn’t know” that Kara is Supergirl, I’ll chalk up to bad character development on the writers’ part. Considering the mess that this season has been, I can’t say I’m surprised that this relationship was underdeveloped in the finale.

10) Also, what’s up with Kara grieving alone? Again, this is very different from the character development that we have seen from the beginning of the show. Kara thrives off of people supporting her, not doing things alone. 


All in all, i loved this finale. Why? The worst character season 2 has ever introduced (Mon el) has finally gone, hopefully for good. Honestly if he somehow returns for season 3 I’m going to flip shit.

Although the rationale behind the villain’s evil scheme wasn’t entirely coherent — he wanted to drain their powers while making them understand love, or something? — it didn’t need to be. Criss was put in this episode for two reasons: to look good in red suspenders and to sing. And he did both quite well.

'Supergirl' Boss Reveals Timely Finale Title

Supergirl has found a fitting finale title after a season that has tackled themes of diversity, immigration, hatred, LGBTQ, and much more.

EW can exclusively reveal that the season finale will be titled “Nevertheless, She Persisted,” per executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.

The title is inspired by Senator Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to be silenced during the debate to confirm Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. Warren spoke out against him, reading a letter by Coretta Scott King, during which she was interrupted several times before a vote was called to effectively silence her.

After the incident, Senator Mitch McConnell said, “Senator Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

Much more than just becoming a meme online, it became a rallying cry about women’s ability to break barriers if they persist, which seems apropos for what’s ahead for Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) in the finale.

Not only is Daxamite Queen Rhea (Teri Hatcher) planning something nefarious in retaliation for losing her son, Mon-El (Chris Wood), but anti-alien group Cadmus is still lurking in the shadows, while Kryptonian villain Zod (Mark Gibbon) is also expected to appear. Good thing Kara will have extra help on hand with the returns of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) in the season ender!

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. The finale will air May 22.

'Supergirl' Boss Teases Big Two-Part Finale

The Girl of Steel is going to have her work cut out for her in the final episodes of Supergirl this season.

After Rhea (Teri Hatcher) effectively tricked Lena (Katie McGrath) into creating a portal that would allow the surviving Daxamite race to come to Earth — err, New Daxam — Kara (Melissa Benoist) will have to turn to some unlikely allies to combat this new threat, not least of which is Cadmus leader Lillian Luthor (Brenda Strong).

But just because they are aligned now doesn’t mean Cadmus has stopped hating aliens. In fact, the Daxamites won’t be Kara’s only threat as Supergirl heads into its second season finale. “There’s multiple showdowns coming up,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW. “These are some of our biggest episodes we’ve ever done.”

“The finale is probably the biggest episode we’ve ever done,” Kreisberg continues. “We saved a bunch of money to pay for more visual effects and actually added another day to the schedule so we could make it as big as possible, and yet it also has multiple get-your-Kleenex scenes. We’re really excited about it. We’re all blown away.”

With villains abound, Kara will also find some help from returning familiar faces Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) and Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), both of whom she needs “desperately because she’s faced with some truly awful decisions to make in the finale,” Kreisberg says.

Kara will need all the help she can get when Superman villain General Zod (Mark Gibbon) joins the board in the finale. “It’s a great moment,” Kreisberg says of Zod’s arrival. “We needed a big, iconic Superman villain, and there really isn’t anybody more iconic, at least in terms of a physical opponent for Superman, than Zod.”

“Say whatever you want about the finales, they’re not boring,” Kreisberg says with a laugh. “It really feels like the culmination of everything we’ve been doing all season long, all the different story lines, whether it’s Superman and Cat and Cadmus and M’Gann and Mon-El and Lynda Carter and now Rhea, it all comes together in one big two-part story.”

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. The finale airs May 22.
