Heading into next week's new episode of The CW's Supergirl, Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Team Supergirl race Nyxly (Peta Sergeant) for possession of a magical totem that allows the wielder to control courage. But when each of them walks away with a piece of it, they'll have to undergo a test of courage for full control of the power. Meanwhile, Lena (Katie McGrath) is still struggling with knowing she has magical powers. Because we're guessing that once you find out you have powers, the next logical question? What do you do with them? Here's a look at a set of preview images for "The Gauntlet," followed by an episode overview, promo, and sneak preview that finds Lena looking for some help in controlling some 5th Dimension magic:
