'Supergirl' Season 5 Finale Preview: Will William Dey be a casualty in Kara's showdown with Lex and Leviathan?
Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer), Leviathan, and the Lena-Kara (Katie McGrath and Melissa Benoist) highlighted 'Supergirl' Season 5. Julie Gonzalo's Andrea Rojas/Acrata and Staz Nair's William Dey were some of the new entrants. James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), an integral part of 'Supergirl' had a touching farewell while Jeremy Jordan's Winn Schott made a return for a couple of episodes. And then, there was the 'Crisis on Infinite Earths', a five-part crossover that saw the Arrowverse ring some drastic changes in the show.
However, the larger picture was never lost. Lex was always the antagonist and the last few episodes focused on his twisted plan to take down Kara. He may be a national hero on Earth-Prime post 'Crisis', but he still is the classic, cold-hearted villain he always was. It is a pity this season gets a makeshift finale thanks to the coronavirus outbreak that's put the brakes on production. This meant Episode 19 will be the finale as it teases a massive showdown between Kara and the united Lex and Leviathan.
The cavalry's coming for Kara with Lena linking up with Team Supergirl. After a season that saw a rather rocky, emotional roller-coaster of a drama between the two best friends, it appears they have buried the hatchet to bring down Lex.
Titled'Immortal Kombat', the finale's official synopsis reads: "HAREWOOD DIRECTED THIS PENULTIMATE EPISODE – 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. David Harewood directed the episode with a story by Derek Simon and teleplay by Emilio Ortego Aldrich & Nicki Holcomb (#519). Original airdate 5/17/2020."
It is safe to say this final tussle will not end with Episode 19 considering it was a 22-episode season. But what's interesting is the fate of William who has been looked at as one of the casualties of war. Will the character die, has been one of the many questions fans have asked and 'Immortal Kombat' might just have an answer.
The other focus point is Lena. With the season focusing on an icy and irreparable friendship between the two, this move 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. A cliffhanger ending is all but assured.
'Supergirl' Season 5 Episode 19: 'Immortal Kombat' airs Sunday 9 pm ET on The CW.
