In addition to the suitably rousing sneak peek above, a synopsis has also been put out for those (like me) who weren’t in the Supergirl loop, and it teases more of what to expect.

Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) realizes that in order to stop Lex (guest star Jon Cryer) and Leviathan she must work with the one person she never thought she’d trust again – Lena (Katie McGrath).

I mentioned this finale comes earlier-than-anticipated. That’s because Supergirl, as with many TV shows that had been airing in the spring period, has had to cut short production due to the pandemic. That means the fifth season will end on its penultimate, 19th episode, as opposed to its originally billed 20th. And the upshot for fans? Well, you can expect a cliffhanger ending, with the resolution postponed until the sixth season (which has been commissioned). It’s going to be a nail-biting wait until the show is back on, that’s for sure.

Don’t miss the Supergirl season 5 finale, “Immortal Kombat” this Sunday on The CW. If you’re thinking of tuning in, or have been following the series up to now, drop a comment below telling us what you’re hoping to see. It’s a bit of a stopgap, but a penultimate episode is a better place for the interruption to happen than in the middle of a season, right?

Of course, a similar thing happened with the tenth season of The Walking Dead, where filming had been completed on the final episode, but post-production had not. That unaired finale will now be released as a special later this year. Everyone’s having to get creative, it seems.
