'Supergirl' Season 5: Will J'onn J'onzz and Malefic bury the hatchet and make peace with their bitter past?
At the moment, there is still a lot of bitter hatred that Malefic harbors for J'onn, but the show will hopefully see the two make peace with their past actions
This article contains spoilers for 'Supergirl' Episode 3 'Blurred Lines'
J'onn J'onnz's violent relationship with his Martian brother Malefic was one of the key storylines in 'Blurred Lines'. When Nia (Nicole Maines) offers to help J'onn recall his memories, the duo realizes that it was J'onn who mindwiped Malefic from existence leading the brother to exact revenge.
By the end of the episode, Malefic was still at large and it is shown that Kelly can see Malefic due to a link created with the Obsidian treatment.
When Nia initially takes Martian Manhunter through his memories, he realizes that Malefic has a different skillset from the green Martians and was cut off from them.
This resulted in their father abandoning the son in an unknown place. When J'onn tries to come back and rescue him at a later point in time, he sees that Malefic was already corrupted by the White Martians.
The pain Malefic suffered ended with his and J'onn's minds being wiped of this memory, an act equivalent to murder in Martian culture.
The next question is will Malefic and J'onn bury the hatchet at some point? While both of them have reasons for their actions, one of them has to start making amends.
Even though it was J'onn who took the step of apologizing and hoping to set things right, Malefic refuses to relent.
Given the mysterious new enemy that we saw a glimpse of in the episode, Lena's plans to fix humanity, new metas, the Leviathan and the 'Crisis', there's more than enough that team Supergirl have to tackle in the days to come and this enmity may just see J'onn suffer more in the process.
At the moment, it is still a lot of bitter hatred that Malefic shares, but the show will hopefully see the two make peace with their past actions. If this is isn't the case, then it may be safe to speculate that Malefic will be a victim of one of the threats leaving J'onn devastated.
What are your thoughts on J'onn and Malefic's violent relationship? Will we see them make amends in the episodes to come? 'Supergirl' airs at 9 pm on Sundays on The CW.
