After being used by Lex as a means to turn the world against Supergirl by having her publicly go on a killing spree, Red Daughter was killed by the villain as he defended Supergirl during the Season 4 finale.

Joining Red Daughter in departing the Arrowverse series is Jon Cryer's Lex Luthor, who was killed by his sister Lena at the end of the episode. With two of its recurring antagonists dead, Season 4 served as an ending of sorts, setting the stage for all-new threats moving forward.

Supergirl's fifth season will air on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. The series stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen and Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers.
