    Very nice.
    Superboy is being introduced in Titans' second season, so I doubt we'll see him in Supergirl any time soon.
    EDIT: I just remembered they are also introducing Deathstroke, who has appeared in the Arrowverse, so I guess it's not totally impossible.

    If we see a Superboy in the Arrowverse, I think it will be Jon not Kon.

    Good point, that didn't even occur to me. We already got a potential set up for him with Lois being pregnant, so all we need is a bit of sci-fi quick aging, and we've got a Superboy.

    Not saying it was worth it, just saying everytime Kara came close to telling Lena, Lena reminded her how IMPORTANT personal integrity and loyalty is to the young Luthor even though one could argue Lena herself was often found wanting in this regard.

    And don't be so quick to blame Alex, since she didn't even know Kara was Supergirl for half the season.

    As for "losing a friend/was it worth it," the same question could be directed at Lena.

    When she discovered Kara had been lying to her re her identity, why did she not confront Kara directly as soon as possible and have it out with her over the deception. Maybe because in the ensuing argument Lena would have to admit to killing her own brother in cold blood? Talk about one's personal integrity not standing up to scrutiny in the light of a new day.

    Oh, and since she killed Lex before she learned about Kara, Lena can't blame his murder on her being rattled from Kara's lies.





    This next season has the potential of being quite interesting, depending on how they play this relationship debacle.

    Tried to make that my desk top. Too big. None of the "fitting" options look good.

    One more thing...

    THEY ARE NOT UNITED!!!!!

    Lena is the baddy, and the only way she wants to see them united is if they are boiled together in a vat of human/alien fat, and sold as Luthor brand soap.

    Also, those and individual publicity shots that were cobbled together on Photoshop by a graphic artist, becuase that's how these sorts of shots are always done, unless Alex is dating a hobbit.

    "sigh"

    What if it's Lena and Kara who have a baby and their speed grown clone looks just like little girl who has been playing young Kara ll along... BUT SHE HAS LENA'S HAIR.

    And the 17 year old calls herself Superwoman?

    I only wrote it like that because I am too much of a caveman to decypher what Lena's hair colour is.

    I didn't understand either why Lena has not confronted Kara at the end of 4x24 (when she joined the troop at Kara's loft). It was the right occasion but well, I guess that Lena was still shocked by the news... .

    About Alex, if I remember well, she always knew Kara's true identity (remember the scene in 1st season, when the latter had proposed to her older sister, Alex, to make a little tour under a starry sky, what brought the DEO's official representant, a certain Hank Hershaw, to knock at the door of the Danvers family a few time later ... . :whistle: . We knew that Alex's memory loss would be temporary.

    At several occasions, Kara expressed her willingness to reveal her identity to Lena but each time, Alex or Hank restrained her from doing so. The very last time was at this said evening games: Alex, who finally recognized the need to tell the truth to Lena but advised her sister to wait the day after to do it, under the pretext of keeping Lena on an emotional level after the bloody confrontation with her brother.

    You are right, S5 should be interesting. Even if we know that their relationship would be tense for awhile, I just hope that tensions won't last the whole season with a big explanation/hug in the finale.

    I'm still not convinced that Lena will be the baddy, She's definitely pissed, but I really don't see this being enough for her to go full on villain. Her whole story line has been about her not being like the rest of her family, and I can't see her going against that now.

    I thought they were in J'onn's office. And I think she kept quiet because she was biding her time figuring out how to deal with it. With her upbringing among the Luthors, I'm sure she learned at an early age to keep her true thoughts and feelings to herself as protection against betrayal. She feels betrayed by Kara and her friends, so she's on the defensive.

    Lena is too busy letting her inner child be manipulated by her big brother Lex to think clearly about EVERYONE's betrayal.

    I can see her keeping her mouth shut in front of Nia in case she didn't know the truth about Alex being DEO, or J'onn being the MM, or Kelly didn't know about Kara being Supergirl, but I would have loved seeing Lena pull James and Alex aside to complain about them lying to her. If that ever happened, I hope Alex or James pulls this old Lena excuse out to defend themselves.



    As for Lena feeling betrayed by James, one wonders why that doesn't piss her off even more than Kara. I'd love to be a fly on the wall when that argument occurs and James asks her if he has to reveal who Superman is too in order to prove his worth to Lena? (I hated it in season 1 when James tried to pressure Kara into revealing her secret to Lucy so he could advance his love affair since he didn't feel the need to tell her about Superman.)

    In fact, maybe that's who we need to bring back to the fold to open Lena's heart to accepting Kara's explanation.






    Lucy Lane.

    Even though Arrow is still my favorite Arrowverse show, season 4 of Supergirl deserved that win.
