Supergirl was on a pretty long hiatus recently, while Superman And Lois ended its first season. That first season was phenomenal but now the original Arrowverse Kryptonian is back to finish her final season ever! Melissa Benoist spoke with Entertainment Weekly, recently, where she says Kara and Lena are stronger than ever! I still don’t think we should hold our breath for Supercorp like many fans are hoping for.
Even though Lena and Kara’s relationship isn’t romantic, doesn’t mean it’s not powerful though. Their dynamic has consistently been one of the best on the show. Season 5 saw Lena go against Kara, and their friendship seemed over. Benoist is pretty sure their relationship is stronger than ever now! Good news for fans of Lena Luthor.
Here’s what Benoist had to say to the outlet.
“I think that Kara and Lena’s relationship is stronger than ever in this last season. Everything they went through in Season 5, I wouldn’t say it’s water under the bridge, but I do think it’s fortified their friendship and their sisterhood, and their alliance. I think it’s such a wonderful exemplary relationship on the show of how women can lift each other up this season, and how women can disagree but then find a common ground that really solves problems in genius ways, especially when you have a Luthor, the name carries that weight, and Supergirl. Those two women together — the strength and brawn and hope of Supergirl, and the brilliance and ingenuity of Lena Luthor — they do some really exciting things together this year.”
Katie McGrath, the woman who portrays Lena Luthor, has previously discussed what she’d like to see happen for Lena in this final season. In mentioning her end goal for Lena, she wants Lena to be able to stand on her own, away from the Luthor name.
In a different interview with Entertainment Weekly, McGrath said, “I really would like to see Lena come into full acceptance of who she is, that she’s fully accepted who she is, what she’s done, and who she is now. She’s not hung up about the bad parts of her, and she’s fully accepted the woman that she is, warts and all, and she believes that she is a good person. For me, that would be such a lovely wrapping up for Lena because she struggled so much with who she is. To finally just take a deep breath and go, ‘I’m enough, Lena is enough,’ and be happy for it, I know it sounds so simple, it’s not like these grand plans that everybody else probably wants for their characters, but it’s so simple for Lena. I just want her to finally be okay with who she is.”
