'Supergirl' Season 5 Episode 18 'Missing Link' Preview: Lex and Lena Luthor find themselves in serious danger
In the next episode of 'Supergirl', the team is going to take on Rama Khan, while Lex and Lena find themselves in danger
'Supergirl' Season 5 might be ending soon, but it's not going to conclude without some fireworks. Tensions are still running high between Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) and Kara (Melissa Benoist). Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) is taking full advantage of the rift between them and is determined to bring Lena over to his side. Lex's plan is simple and straightforward: Get Leviathan to kill Supergirl.
The promo for the next episode titled 'Missing Link' promises to be more enthralling as Supergirl and Dreamer are expected to team up and fight the diabolic Rama Khan (Mitch Pileggi). However, Lex and Lena might find themselves in a spot of trouble as their 'Non-Nocere' project is going to land them in danger.
The synopsis for the next episode reads, "Supergirl and the team go head-to-head against Rama Khan and Leviathan; Lena and Lex must join forces when Project Non Nocere fails, leaving the two siblings in serious danger."
In the promo, Kara seems to have finally found evidence that Lex is working with Leviathan. We get to see Khan creating some havoc too. And at the end of the short promo, Kara drops the line, "When there's smoke, there's a Luthor," and we see an eerie shot of the two Luthors.
In the previous episode, we saw how Lex has been pulling the strings ever since the Crisis. He is as diabolic as ever and is eager to create further problems between Lena and Kara. There was a moment where Lena and Kara had almost reached a reconciliation point, but once again, due to misunderstandings, they had another face-off at the end of the episode. Throughout the season, their issues have been oscillating between the background and the foreground of the storylines. Lena is still furious that Kara never told her that she was Supergirl and is eager to take revenge on Kara. Things are heating up to an intense finale, which, in all probability is going to be a cliffhanger. Season 5 had to be cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic and so we'll be seeing a different finale than what was originally planned.
'Supergirl' airs on Sundays at 9pm.
