'Supergirl' Season 5 Episode 19: Fans threaten to riot if Brainy dies before Nia can save him
While the whole Super squad celebrates their victory, they don't really know what's happening to Brainy. Only senses that he must be dying and rushes to save him
Make merry folks because Leviathan is gone! Well, the sinister alien organisation didn't really intimidate or bother us for most of the season, except to appear threatening in the background. And thanks to Brainy (Jesse Rath), that's the last we see of them. Brainy finally decided to bring down Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) in his own game and went out in a white flame of sacrifice to destroy Leviathan. Those actually formed the most heartwarming moments of the finale. While the whole Super squad celebrates their victory, they don't really know what's happening to Brainy. Only Nia (Nicole Maines) senses that he must be dying and rushes to save him. However, it will be a year before we find out if she saved him or not.
Fans are already pleading with the showrunners that he better survive. Brainy has always been one of the most likable characters on the show, even when he got rid of his inhibitors, and it would be a terrible shame if something happened to him. For most of the season, he was working with Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) with the hope that the diabolic man will be able to bring down Leviathan. Turns out that all Lex wanted was to pit Leviathan against Supergirl and watch her die. Hell, Brainy wasn't going to let his team die and a little help from his female doppelganger ensured that.
One fan wrote, "Please don't let brainy die, he is pure person, even he is big idiot. Please let him live. dreamer is needs him, he is needs dreamer." Another wrote, "OMG poor Brainy is going to need one hell of a vacation after this #Supergirl." "The upload will take 10 minutes. I don't know if I can last that long..." "You can. I'll be with you the whole way." The other Brainy being played by Jesse's sister adds a whole other layer of awesome to this. #Supergirl," wrote a fan, quoting the dialogues between the two.
"I really need a Brainy/Nia reunion hug #Supergirl," tweeted a fan. "Brainy gave his life to save his friends, and they were just celebrating did they just think that the Leviathan got defeated by themselves?? why no one is asking what happened? thank god for dreamer and her dreams otherwise she would be celebrating with them #supergirl."
"Okay @TheCWSupergirl — I loved tonight’s #Supergirl finale! I mean, not a huge fan of the whole cliffhanger ending—thx COVID-19—but everything else was super fun! We even got a sonic clap! But Brainy better not be dead or I’ll RIOT. @jesserath and @MeaghanRath breaking my heart!" a fan tweeted. "CAN SOMEONE CHECK ON BRAIN PLEASE," a fan tweeted. Well, we'll find out a year later, whether he is alive or not.
