Before we head into a preview for next week's episode of The CW's Supergirl, a quick heads-up for viewers out there. On October 16th during the global fan event DC FanDome, the Melissa Benoist-starring Arrowverse series will be honored with a look back at its' six-season run so make sure to check that out. But until then, there's the preview for "Still I Rise" to deal with. Supergirl's (Benoist) efforts to make a difference hit a roadblock in the forms of red-tape reality and a really-badly-timed appearance by Nyxly (Peta Sergeant). While Kara's dealing with that nightmare, Nia aka Dreamer (Nicole Maines) spends some quality time with her mother (Kate Burton) for further training- and some truths.
Supergirl Season 6 Episode 10 "Still I Rise": NIA SPENDS TIME WITH HER MOM – Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) intervenes when a building in the Heights that was set aside for low-income housing is suddenly at risk to be sold to a major corporation.

Meanwhile, Nia (Nicole Maines) trains with her mother (Kate Burton). The episode was directed by Jesse Warn, with story by Jess Kardos and teleplay by Nicki Holcomb & Jen Troy.
