The fractured Lena-Kara relationship has been one of the main storylines of Season 5, along with Leviathan and Lex Luthor's (Jon Cryer) return. Ever since Lena (Katie McGrath) found out that Kara was really Supergirl, she has been seething with anger at the betrayal.

And, she has pulled out all the stops to extract her pound of flesh from Kara. Things are getting ugly, as Lex has found a way to get into Lena's head, convincing her that Supergirl doesn't care for her.

In the latest episode, though there seemed like there would be a brief moment of reconciliation between Lena and Kara, the two got back to fighting with each other again, just a few minutes later, as Kara chose to use Myriad, despite telling Lena that she didn't want to. 

Fans are a little irritated with this storyline and feel that enough is enough. They hope for a patch-up between the two because this plot has gone on long enough. Some fans are saying Lena's "massive" ego is just ruining her friendship with Kara.

"#Supergirl needs to bridge the gap between Lena and Kara Now. There’s no ifs ands or buts about it. The show is better when they’re together and the manipulation from outside forces keeping them apart is tired and boring at this point," wrote a fan.

"I knew Lena's massive ego would not keep her friends with Kara for long #Supergirl," another fan wrote. "Lena REALLY needs to get over her petty ego if she ever wants to be friends with Kara again. #Supergirl x," a fan tweeted.

"Kara: Lena no. You can’t use myriad to kind control people. Lena: WHY NOT?!? YOURE EVIL! Kara: *uses myriad to find missing people* Lena: HOW DARE YOU THIS IS A DIRECT BETRAYAL ON ME! Lena needs to go," another fan wrote. 

"Aaaaand Lena and Kara are not friends again when will this feud end?! #SuperGirl I miss these scenes! However, well done @MelissaBenoist in your debut as a director!" wrote a fan.

However, other fans found a way to justify Lena's behavior. "Lena confronting Kara wasn't about the hypocrisy of the situation. It was about: 'If you're willing to use Myriad, then you're desperate. But I'm here! You didn't lose me. Meet me in the middle, Kara!' Why would you rather go against your morals than ask for my help?!"

Meanwhile, the scene where Lena goes to give Kara a book in office has fans weeping as it was so "honest".

"The FACT lena followed kara to her office to offer her condolences about jeremiah and GAVE her a book on GRIEF which kara later READ and LIKED makes me so soft because the first conversation they had in MONTHS was so open and honest about death and IM CRYING," tweeted a fan.
