Supergirl has nowhere left to hide.
In a new teaser for Season 5, Lena Luthor puts all her cards on the table. "I need to know why you betrayed me," she tells Kara. This likely references the fact that Kara never told Lena about her alter ego, which will drive a wedge between them in the upcoming season. The Season 5 sizzle reel from Comic-Con International confirmed this would be a major aspect of Season 5, while showrunner Jessica Queller later revealed it would be the "emotional center of the season."
In the next scene, Van Helsing star Jennifer Cheon Garcia makes her Supergirl debut as Midnight, "a murderous villain released from an otherwordly prison to enact revenge against the person who put her there." The character, described as "the physical manifestation of darkness," hisses, "There is no hiding" before she unleashes a raw burst of power at the Girl of Steel.
Season 5 will pit Supergirl and her friends against a technological threat. "One of our big bads this season is Leviathan, so we're bringing that into our canon this year... This season is going to be about how technology effects us," executive producer Robert Rovner explained at SDCC. "We'll be seeing how our villains this season use technology against us and how our heroes bring us back."
Returning Sunday, Oct. 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen and Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers.
