Supergirl S06E01 Rebirth Teaser: The Truth Behind Lex's Plan Revealed

Starting this Tuesday, The CW's Supergirl kicks off its sixth and final season run- and for Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Lena (Katie McGrath) aren't going to get a second to celebrate. Not when they're facing the double-threat of Gamenmae (Cara Buono) and Leviathan, and … of course… Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer). But considering Lex has found himself being worshipped by half of the world and getting a serious power upgrade, they're going to need to get the band back together: Brainiac (Jesse Rath), Alex (Chyler Leigh), J'onn (David Harewood), Dreamer (Nicole Maines), and Kelly (Azie Tesfair). But when Brainiac finds himself near death and the team pushed to its limit, will Kara make the ultimate sacrifice to save the day one more time?
