With Crisis on Earth-X behind them, the Arrowverse shows head into their mid-season finales next week. Supergirl picks up where episode seven left off with Samantha Arias (Odette Annable) having made the transition into Reign. This is the major storyline for the season, and it looks like we might get the first showdown between Reign and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist).
The clip includes a voice over that sounds like it’s reading Kryptonian scripture or something. The voice sounds like Thomas Coville (Chad Lowe) talking about the rise of the Worldkiller and how her rise will come at the fall of the righteous and she will reign. There is also talk about Kara needing to see something and an area with a lot of big spotlights… my guess is we’re looking at Reign’s version of the Fortress of Solitude in the desert.
Reign’s costume design includes a mask, which makes me wonder if she becomes the Worldkiller full-time or if she goes back and forth — and does she know she’s going back and forth? How long before Kara knows it’s Sam she’s fighting, and how long will she try to save her? And when it comes out, what does that do for the relationship between Kara and Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath)?
The mid-season finale of Supergirl airs Monday December 4th at 8 p.m. ET
