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. But before we get to an official preview for "The Gauntlet," we're going to take a minute to check in with McGrath, who shared her thoughts on what the series has meant to her.

In the following clip, McGrath discusses what it was like going from expecting to only be in three episodes to becoming an essential part of the show as it prepares to wrap up its run. From what it was like seeing Benoist in the supersuit for the first time to what her favorite season/episodes were (and how they helped define Lena Luthor as her own character), check out the clip below.

Now here's a look ahead to next week's episode of The CW's Supergirl, "The Gauntlet":

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).
