Even though he clearly had no fight training, Mon-El was able to convince Supergirl and the people at the DEO that he was a former bodyguard for the prince of Daxam and only escaped his planet's destruction because the noble and heroic prince insisted he use the Kryptonian pod to fly to safety. Hogwash!
In last week's episode, the truth was finally revealed. Mon-El is actually the prince of Daxam and there was absolutely nothing noble or heroic about his escape (view in the video above). Obviously, this revelation threatened to ruin Mon-El's relationship with Kara forever, but one night later in The Flash-Supergirl musical crossover, she chose to forgive him and all is hunky dory.
So what's next for the star-crossed lovers? “Isn’t that how things work that just when you get things settled, some wrench has to fall into the gears?” Melissa Benoist told EW. “The Daxamites pose some problems. Rhea is not necessarily a sweet prospect for a mother-in-law, but it’s really fun to see the way these characters interact.”
