Supergirl Fans Want Kara/Lena Supercorp Ship Canon; Game Night Debate

Fans of The CW's Supergirl are only a week away from the start of the show's final run of episodes and expectations are running high for how the series will end its run. In fact, as we're writing this? Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) are currently the sixth trending topic nationally because fans of the two being romantically paired are pushing hard for "Supercorp" (their ship) to be official canon. That's pretty impressive on a day and during a week in which there isn't a new episode. As for The CW, they were busy releasing another behind-the-scenes clip with the cast similar to the "stealing" one from earlier. This time around? Game Night.

Our two biggest takeaways from the clip below? They're a pretty competitive night so Pictionary might get a little rough. And at some point, Nicole Maines (Nia Nal / Dreamer) and Benoist will have to determine who the overall Game Night champ is. Just like in Highlander, there can be only one:

With the return of The CW's Supergirl for the remainder of its sixth and final season on August 24, things actually start off pretty okay for Kara as she and Zor-El (Jason Behr) as their return to National City brings with it some unforeseen dangers. As we saw in the previously-released trailer for the show's return, the optimistic vibes are about to end as Team Kara faces a threat that could turn Earth into a sequel to what happened to Krypton. Add into that equation Nyxly (Peta Sergeant) making her stowed-away presence known and it becomes pretty clear that the long-running Arrowverse series won't be ending its run quietly. Now here's a look at the preview images, episode overview, and promo for "Welcome Back, Kara!":

Supergirl Season 6, Episode 8 "Welcome Back, Kara!": SUPER FRIENDS REUNITED! – As Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and Zor-El (guest star Jason Behr) make their return to National City, they are determined to keep the Phantom Zone behind them and enjoy being superheroes together. Unfortunately, their overzealous efforts backfire, creating a whole new threat to National City. The episode was directed by Armen V. Kevorkian and written by Dana Horgan & Jay Faerber.

The CW's Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw/J'onn J'onzz, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Jesse Rath as Brainiac-5, Nicole Maines as Nia Nal/Dreamer, Julie Gonzolo as Andrea Rojas, Azie Tesfai as Kelly Olsen, Andrea Brooks as Eve Tessmacher, Staz Nair as William Dey, and Eliza Helm as young Cat Grant. Peta Sergeant (Snowfall) has joined the cast as Nyxly, a quirky and kind 5th Dimensional Imp wrongly imprisoned in the Phantom Zone and driven by a tragic backstory. Nyxly helps Kara when she least expects it, and their budding friendship not only heals some of her emotional pain but also helps Nyxly reclaim her own power. Based on characters from DC created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the series stems from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with EPs Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Riverdale), Sarah Schechter (Arrow, The Flash), Robert Rovner (Private Practice, Dallas), and Jessica Queller (Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, Felicity).
