'Supergirl' Season 5 Episode 19 Finale will see Kara and Lena join forces to stop Lex Luthor and Leviathan
The moment 'Supergirl' fans have waited for is almost upon us. Lex Luthor, Leviathan and Supergirl get to face-off in one epic showdown in the upcoming episode, 'Immortal Kombat'. Now we don't know if the scrimmage will see the iconic 'Mortal Kombat' theme play in the background but jokes apart, this marks the end of the tease that started before the 'Crisis on Infinite Earths'.
Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) had her first encounter with Mitch Pileggi's Rama Khan in Episode 8: 'The Wrath of Rama Khan'. To quickly recap, the Leviathan member had plans to destroy earth in the same manner as he does Pompeii. But in Acrata (Andrea Rojas played by Julie Gonzalo), team Supergirl gains a formidable ally as she helps Kara outwit the Leviathan meta for the second time. Malefic too plays his part as the changed brother when he assists the DEO in countering Lena Luthor's (Katie McGrath) plans of using Q-waves to impose her will and wish on the world, albeit in a way that will keep them from hurting others.
The David Harewood-directed episode also throws a twist when it brings in a Kara-Lena team-up. The official synopsis reads: "Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) realizes that in order to stop Lex (guest star Jon Cryer) and Leviathan she must work with the one person she never thought she’d trust again – Lena (Katie McGrath). Nia (Nicole Maines) keeps dreaming about Brainy (Jesse Rath) but struggles with what the dreams are trying to tell her. Meanwhile, Brainy realizes there is only one way to stop Lex."
The first focus point is Lena. With the season focusing on an icy and irreparable friendship between the two, this moves comes as a surprise. But does that mean Lena can be trusted? That would be the million-dollar question running in the minds of fans who have closely followed the series. The Nia-Brainy relationship was one of the talking points this season and the upcoming episode seems to shed light on the direction their relationship might take.
Considering the massive hype Leviathan received since the start of the season, it is safe to speculate the viewers will get to see the organization in all its glory. Perhaps, Gamemnea's full abilities would be showcased as well after a glimpse in the previous episode. With Season 5 set to end with 'Immortal Kombat', it remains to be seen if the showrunners add one final twist that might be explained in Season 6.
'Supergirl' will air 'Immortal Kombat' on May 17, 9 pm ET on The CW.
