Sadly, the network isn’t going to give us a “super Tuesday” featuring this cousins. Instead, the new drama featuring Clark Kent will go on hiatus.
Supergirl will run episodes until Superman & Lois returns on Tuesday, May 18 during which Supergirl will go on hiatus.
The final episodes of Supergirl are set to air sometime in the summer, though the date has yet to be announced.

Supergirl Review – Love Totem and Romantic Proposal (6×17)
Love was in the air on Supergirl Season 6 Episode 17.
The only saving grace for the episode was Lex Luthor’s return and Alex and Kelly’s engagement!
Supergirl may have suggested that Nyxly is the biggest threat they’ve faced to date, but I just don’t find that to be true. However, Nyxly with an assist from Lex and his ability to time travel? That’s a different story.
Lex Luthor has never been a man who considered anyone else but himself, but his return to help Nyxyly is triggered by his love for her. Yes, Lex Luthor has puppy dog eyes for Nyxly. Or, as Otis put it, he’s “smitten.”
I couldn’t help but laugh at all the times Lex found himself uttering “I love you” as the present-day version of Nyxly pushed him away.
Nyxly wasn’t interested in Lex’s help since she only saw him as an arrogant and manipulative man just like her father and brother, but Lex was determined to help her in any way he could in hopes of changing the future and saving her from her future demise.
Lex eventually confirms that while Nyxly gets the AllStone and her revenge, it destroys her.
Since he loves her, he decided to travel back in time to help her get it the right way.
It’s honestly a different look for Lex, but it makes me slightly more invested in this Totem drama.
And that’s even more true when the Love Totem is destroyed and Lex — who pulls Nyxly into the future in order to protect her from the Super Squad’s humanity spell — reveals that it’ll respawn in a new shell with the same energy.
In the final moments, we see the Totem show up as a sort of tattoo on Esme’s back, which ups the stakes quite substantially.
Esme is the cutest and sweetest little girl. She’s Alex and Kelly’s pride and joy, so naturally, they’ll do anything to protect her.
However, two villains such as Lex and Nyxyly won’t think twice about destroying her.
It’s gearing up for a really intense battle. From the looks of it, the only way to bring down Luthor and Nyxly is to destroy them first.
Will the series end with Lex Luthor’s demise?
If the Super Squad can figure out why Lex’s decision to forego grabbing the Love Totem was so irrational, they might get a leg up on them as well.
The good thing is that Lex isn’t the only person with connections to the future. Brainy can also tap into the knowledge the Legion has, and this time, he’ll be kept in line by his team.
I hope that all of this Nyxyly and Lex drama doesn’t keep Alex and Kelly from planning their perfect wedding.
With just three episodes to go, Alex is getting everything she’s ever wanted out of life, and it’s really awesome to finally see it pan out after all these years.
We’re going to a wedding!!
How sweet was it that Kelly and Alex both thought about proposing in the same way on the same day?
Their relationship is proof that there is something to fight for amongst all the chaos and darkness. They are the light.
I wasn’t as invested in the whole Supergirl, J’onn, and Lena storyline, but I’m glad they all faced their fears and came out on top.
Supergirl and Lena, specifically, had a lot to work through when it came to Lex’s return, but they pulled through for each other.
Lena is finally free from his grasp; she no longer cares about what he thinks of her, and he no longer has a stronghold over her.
Her character growth has really been exceptional these past few seasons. I’m glad she’s fully on board with the Super Squad, and it’s awesome to see her embracing her magic and giving it her all.
Science and magic can co-exist, it seems.
Andrea wanted William to get the scoop about Lex Luthor’s return, but he didn’t want to run the story without proof.
When William didn’t pull through, Andrea decided to channel Arcata and sneak into the Luthor Mansion to get proof herself. Will she out his love for Nyxly to the world?
Meanwhile, William was meeting with Otis at the time, which honestly seems like a bad idea.
William continues to be included in the episodes, and he has one foot in with the Super Squad, but it’s not entirely clear what the purpose of his character is.
He gave Alex a speech about embracing love before it’s too late, but does that mean he’s going to tell Kara that he’s in love with her?
If he’s not going to be her love interest, what’s the point of keeping him so involved?

Supergirl Review – Hope for Tomorrow (6×15)
What happens when the world runs out of hope?
On Supergirl Season 6 Episode 15, Supergirl and the Super Friends aimed to stop Nyxly from getting her hands on the third totem — the Hope totem.
Since Supergirl is the symbol for hope, the gauntlet should’ve been a no-brainer for her, and yet, it took her way too long to figure out what needed to be done.
Eventually, it boiled down to stripping two countries of their missiles, which fell pretty flat as a storyline.
Nyxly knew that she didn’t stand a chance at getting the Hope totem, so her plan was to gain leverage against Supergirl by kidnapping William Dey and forcing her to give them up.
It was also a pretty weak plan, but that’s not all that surprising considering Nyxly is a pretty lame villain.
Her motivation is getting revenge for a personal matter, whereas Supergirl has dealt with the likes of Lex Luthor, who want world domination.
It doesn’t even come close.
Supergirl was able to save William and preserve the totems at the same time. And her solution to put an end to Nyxly was to destroy the Hope totem by throwing it into the sun.
This way, Nxyly would never be able to complete the AllStone and manipulate reality.
What possible repercussions could the world face without hope? Could Supergirl potentially lose her powers if she is unable to inspire people?
While it wasn’t a terrible plan, the Super Squad probably should’ve had one to fall back on.
Instead, the team has been less than super as of late. As Lena attempts to figure out her mother’s grimoire, Brainy’s calculations haven’t delivered anything promising.
Supergirl was on her own with this one because the Super Squad wasn’t being all that super.
In the final moments of the episode, Nyxly received a gift from a “secret admirer” that encouraged her not to give up hope.
Once she activated the watch, she was suited up in her own protective armor.
With talks of Nyxly teaming up with Lex Luthor, this could only be his doing.
If that’s the case, this just got more interesting.
Lex is the one enemy Supergirl hasn’t been able to thwart. And they always say, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
With Nyxly’s blatant disregard for humanity, a super-suit, and Lex Luthor whispering in her ear, there’s no telling what she’ll do next.
But at least it finally makes her a formidable foe. This is the kind of twist the final season has been missing.
I’ll be honest that the search for the totems has been rather bland, much like William Dey’s personality.
Why couldn’t they make him a more interesting character?
I thought that he was supposed to be Supergirl’s potential love interest, but the man has no flavor, so I don’t even care to see that pan out.
The real treat of the episode was Esme — what a bundle of cuteness.
We finally got the see the moment where Alex Danvers’ dreams come true and she becomes a mother!
Why couldn’t the whole episode focus on this?
The icing on the cake was Esme figuring out that Kara was Supergirl literally seconds after meeting her. I know she mimics powers, but Lena, William, and the lot should be embarrassed that it took them so long.
They might not have superpowers, but they have eyes. Glasses and a ponytail do not make up a whole new person!
Alex definitely pushed Esme a little too much on her first day. When she kept prompting her to “breathe” and keep going, I was waiting for the fallout.
Alex has waited her whole life for this moment, so why couldn’t she be a little more patient?
There was no need to overwhelm the poor girl right from the jump.
Meeting all these superheroes is a big deal in and of itself. Let Esme assimilate to her new life with a dreamy bedroom and access to a tower.
That wasn’t even the biggest reason why Esme was thrown off. She was simply being cautious and suggested going back to the group home because abandonment is all she’s ever known.
Thankfully, she has been adopted by two people who know more about alien powers than anyone else, who are also able to connect her with the experts. She’s in good hands, and she’ll never be alone again!
I also want a truth seeker as a pet. Can I pick one of those up at Petsmart?
There are only five episodes left until the series final. How do you think it all ends?
And will Supergirl and Lex Luthor face-off once again?
Sound off in the comments below with your hopes and wishes for the final few episodes.
Supergirl Review – Magical Thinking (6×14)
Is anyone else unimpressed with the Nyxly versus. Supergirl friends storyline?
Nyxly was compared to the likes of Lex Luthor due to her corruption and manipulation, but she doesn’t even come close to his level of villain status.
With the series finale fast approaching, I expected the sixth and final season to be the best, but it just feels like a rehashing of storylines we’ve seen previously.
How many times has the fate of the world rested on Supergirl’s shoulders?
And each time, she has defeated the villain threatening the planet with the help of the Super friends.
This time won’t be any different.
As the search for the seven Totems continued, Nyxyly was able to get her hands on the Humanity Totem, which wreaked havoc on National City.
The less compassionate the public was, the more compassionate Nxyly became.
Supergirl and the rest of the squad figured that out when Lena’s spell backfired, and they used it to their advantage.
The goal to overwhelm Nxyly with feelings was successful. When she couldn’t take it anymore, she returned to National City to return all the humanity that she had been infused with, and she handed over the Humanity Totem.
The Super Squad leveled the playing field in a pretty efficient way, though, it didn’t come without its fair share of destruction.
It’s interesting that they would willingly put people at risk to defeat Nxyly. It was a dangerous plan regardless of how many of them were out there trying to keep the peace.
Who will get their hands on the next Totem?
As Nxyly pursued another Totem in the Netherlands, the Super friends set their sights on the Dream Totem. Based on the name, it’ll likely tap in Dreamer for help.
The fact that Lena can siphon the particles to track down one of the Totem’s using her mother’s spellbook has been an interesting twist.
Lena testing her powers really pushes her character out of her comfort zone.
When she was being calculated and methodical, she found that she wasn’t able to complete her mother’s spells.
Only after a chat with William did she realize that she needed to let her intuition guide her.
She’s a woman of science, but this newfound power forces her to tap into her inner most being.
It allows us to see Lena at her most vulnerable, and honestly, at her best. The science was always incredible, but seeing her navigate magic is inspiring.
The addition of William to the Super friends is also a fun little shakeup. Overall, I wish we had more time with the Super friends as an established unit in the city.
Their lair, the tower, is such a better setting than the DEO. It’s almost like a corporate versus start-up vibe.
They have no rules here, just their code of ethics that they abide by.
Inviting William was a risky move since there’s so much they keep private. Kara and Nia must really trust him in order to allow him so much information.
All they have is his word that he won’t leak anything that was said or done “off the record.”
Of course, William isn’t a novice, so he knows better than to burn his sources. He has integrity, something most journalists lack these days, including his boss Andrea. I’m glad he didn’t listen to her because he wouldn’t have gotten half the information or experience.
And I’m glad he used his piece as leverage to finally get her off his back. I like Andrea, but the way she bosses her reporters around leaves something to be desired.
William might not be a “friend,” per se, but he’s in on all the action, which is great for the information they want out there like the stuff about how they handled Nxyly.
However, it’s terrible for anything they may want private, including some of their identities.
What if someone slipped up and called Dreamer by her real name?
Or what if he lets word of Lena’s magic slip.
Yes, J’onn could technically erase his memories, but what if he went to press with it before they were able to get it done?
It’s a shock that he didn’t pick up on the fact that Kara was Supergirl after seeing Alex working at the Tower and mentioning her sister.
She really doesn’t look that much different with her hair up!
What did you think of the episode? Are you enjoying the Nyxly storyline or would your rather see this storyline wrapped up ahead of the final episodes?
