Supergirl Season 6 "Rebirth" Overview: Lex One-Ups Trump, Goes Global
With The CW's Superman & Lois having to take some time off after this week to make-up for some pandemic-related production delays, leave it to the Melissa Benoist-starring Supergirl to leap tall programming problems in a single bound by premiering its sixth and final season on Tuesday, March 30. While we're still waiting for the first set of preview images and a teaser/trailer (maybe Tuesday night before S&L ends?), we do have a look at the episode overview for the season-opener "Rebirth." And from how it reads, it appears it's going to take a serious group effort to take down Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer)- who appears to have figured out the secret to Trump's success and gone global with it. With a cult following of that size, Kara may have to make the ultimate sacrifice to stop Lex's reign once and for all.
Supergirl Season 6, Episode 1 "Rebirth": SEASON PREMIERE – As Brainiac (Jesse Rath) lays close to death after trying to stop Lex (Jon Cryer), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and team soar in to save him, engaging in an epic battle with Gamenmae (guest start Cara Buono). After beating Leviathan, Supergirl turns her attention to Lex (Jon Cryer) who has used the Obsidian platform to brainwash half the world to love him and follow him at all costs, no matter what horrible things he does. Knowing how dangerous this makes her brother, Lena (Katie McGrath) enlists the entire team – Alex (Chyler Leigh), J'onn (David Harewood), Dreamer (Nicole Maines), Kelly (Azie Tesfair), and Brainiac – to help, but Supergirl realizes that the only way to truly stop Lex is to sacrifice herself. Jesse Warn directed the episode with a story by Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller, and a teleplay by Jay Faerber & Jess Kardoes.
