Spoilers for 'Supergirl' Season 5 Episode 19
It's been a rough season for Supercorp fans, after Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) discovered Supergirl's (Melissa Benoist) secret identity, turning Lena down on a path towards villainy. After a long, winding road of enmity, the two are reunited and in the season finale share an emotional scene that many fans believe proves just how much the two love each other.
As Supergirl immerses herself in the virtual world of Obsidian to convince people to leave it, a blackmailed Acrata (Julie Gonzalo) arrives with the intent to kill Supergirl. It's up to Lena to talk Acrata down while at the same time, Supergirl is convincing several billion Obsidian users to do the same. Many fans appreciated the parallels between Lena and Kara.
"This parallel between Kara and Lena. I’m loving it!" writes a fan on Twitter. "This is the most romantic sh** I’ve ever seen in my life, look at the parallels #Supergirl I’m tearing up," wrote another. "They're giving the same speech I am absolutely feral," wrote another. "Lena protecting Kara while saying “I believe in you” the poetic cinema endgame of it all" said another tweet.
Lena's willingness to risk her own life to protect Kara Danvers hit home with a lot of fans. "This back to back of Kara and Lena both giving speeches the international implications," cried a viewer. "We stan Lena Luthor the Protective Genius," said most fans. "Lena is literally ready to sacrifice her life for Supergirl are any of them seeing this?!?" asked one.
One moment from Lena's speech stood out especially to the fans. "IF YOU WANT TO GET TO SUPERGIRL YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH ME. I AM A MESS IM NOT LYING IM CRYING LIKE A BABY OMFG," wrote a viewer. "I didn’t breathe for the ENTIRETY of that exchange and my watch was very worried for my safety" confessed a fan. "Her voice is so deep when she's vulnerable and I feel it in my bones," said a viewer.
Supercorp fans took this moment to emphasize how much this moment highlights Kara and Lena's love for each other. "Shes literally sacrificing herself for Kara this is soulmate sh** right here," cried a fan. "No one talk to me the things Lena will do to save Kara please she could never be a villain" insisted a fan.
It's an emotional scene, that's led to somewhat of a reconciliation between the two characters. However, with the season ending on a cliffhanger, it's going to be a long time before we see how the Kara-Lena relationship goes forward from here.
The next season of 'Supergirl' airs in January 2021.
