The CW has released photos for "A Few Good Women", the second episode of Supergirl's sixth and final season. The episode, which is set to air on Tuesday, April 6th, will see Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) decide what she's willing to do in order to stop her dangerous, villainous brother Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer). It's a particularly interesting position for Lena to be in as the end of Season 5 saw Lena realizing that Lex had been manipulating her for his own purposes the entire time.
Of course, Lena isn't the only one who has significant challenges to deal with. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the rest of the team are also dealing with a major challenge, something that they've never encountered before. While it's not clear from the photos or the episode synopsis exactly what that challenge is, series showrunners Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner have teased that Supergirl will face life or death stakes in the first half of the season.
"She's going to really sacrifice her life and put her life on the line to save her friends and humanity," Queller said. "That challenge, she's going to face her mortality in a way we've never done on the show. That's really the focus of the first run of seven episodes. It's life or death stakes for Kara, and it's very introspective. So, all of the soul searching and taking stock of the past six years will happen in the beginning, and then she'll put it all into play in the second half."
