A family reunion is supposed to be a happy moment, but it’s not what will be happening in the upcoming “Supergirl” season finale.
“Immediately, it’s just a joyous occasion that I think blinds them to a threat there because he was gone for so long that they don’t know what happened to him while he was with Cadmus, so there’s conflict,” Melissa Benoist, who plays Kara Zor-El in the action-drama series, told Entertainment Weekly.
Benoist asserted that her character and Mon-El (Chris Wood) are questioning Jeremiah (Dean Cain) on his mysterious return. However, her sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), doesn’t want to make it such a big deal because it’s their dad, and these opposing ideas could lead to tension within the family.
“One of them is adamant that he’s innocent, and that he wouldn’t do anything to hurt anyone. The other is more suspicious, so there’s some butting heads,” she continued.
Additionally, Leigh stated that Alex is just sticking to the idea of finding their dad and getting back together with him. “They haven’t seen Jeremiah in over a decade, so Alex almost goes back to seeing daddy again,” Leigh explained her character’s point of view.
Apart from Jeremiah’s suspicious homecoming, Cadmus is heading to annihilate all the planets that are against him, including Earth.
Benoist hinted that the season ends with attempting the “mass exodus of anyone that’s different on Earth.”
The “Supergirl” season 2 finale, titled “Exodus,” is scheduled to air on March 6 on The CW.
In other news, “Supergirl” has been renewed for a third season. In January, the network announced the renewal of DC superheroes series lineup, including “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Legends of Tomorrow.”
The Stephen Amell-led series “Arrow” was supposed to be a five-year origin story, but it has now been renewed for a sixth installment. “The Flash” will have its fourth season, while “Legends of Tomorrow” will have its third season next.
