The CW’s Supergirl season three episode five served up the heart-wrenching but inevitable breakup of Sanvers. Despite a little drinking, dancing, and romancing, Alex Danvers’ desire to be a mother meant there was no way she could continue her relationship with Maggie Sawyer. Fortunately, Kara provided a shoulder to lean on and suggested they head back home for a little break.
Season three episode five also found Kara and Samantha teaming up to prove Lena didn’t poison children. Up next is season three episode six titled “Midvale.” Directed by Rob Greenlea from a script by Caitlin Parrish and Jess Kardos, episode six will air on November 13, 2017.
The season three cast includes Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, David Harewood as J’onn J’onzz, Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Chris Wood as Mon-El of Daxam, and Odette Annable as Reign. The series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Sarah Schechter, Robert Rovner, and Jessica Queller.
The “Midvale” Plot: ESCAPE DOWN MEMORY LANE — Kara (Benoist) and Alex (Leigh) head home to Midvale for a little R&R. While there, Kara recalls a painful memory of a childhood friend’s death and how that traumatic experience brought the Danvers sisters closer together. Helen Slater returns as Eliza Danvers and Izabela Vidovic plays Young Kara. Olivia Nikkanen is Young Alex in flashbacks.
