Supergirl Season 3: How Will James Olsen React To Working For A Luthor?

One of the big things to come out of the Supergirl season 3 premiere is that Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) bought Catco. New character and obvious bad guy Morgan Edge (Adrian Pasdar) was trying to buy it while Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) had to put it in a blind trust because she is now working for the President. But Lena and Kara (Melissa Benoist) get along great so there shouldn't be any problems… except that the company is currently run by James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) who has a long history with another Luthor and isn't quick to trust anyone with that surname.

How will James and Lena handle working together? They'll be butting heads on management style, but there's more too it. Brooks told EW.com:

That's complicated. Being who James is, he tries to give everybody a second chance or fresh start. However, there's always this skepticism in the back of his head. She's a Luthor. Is she purposely doing this or that? James is probably the most skeptical of all out of everyone. The rest of them don't know Lex, at least not the way I do.

Seeing someone try to kill your best friend over and over again would make most people a bit skeptical I'd think. And Lena has done a few questionable things so far.

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 PM on the CW.
