Spoilers forward for the Supergirl Season 4 premiere. The premiere of season 4 of Supergirl started things the usual way: with Girl of Steel saving the day not only in National City, but around the world. Kara proved to be as heroic as ever, from catching an art thief to preventing a train from collapsing on a collapsing bridge in Kaznia. The final moments of the episode, however, brought several questions. The main one: What is Kara's second action that justifies her making her way through underground rocks? She is definitely a woman on a mission, but for what?
Let's go back for a minute here. The second Kara was introduced for the first time at the end of season 3, when an aura left the body of Supergirl during his battle with Reign. So, this is only the second time that viewers have seen it. This particular scene began after a bridge collapsed in Kaznia, and Supergirl ran to save a train full of passengers. At first, it seemed like a random incident, but there was actually a good reason for the bridge to fall: below where it used to be, the second Kara was using her super strength to tunnel into something very underground, involuntarily (or so intentionally) ) Making it structurally flawed.
The episode ended before we could find out what exactly Kara is doing or what she is trying to achieve, but that does not mean that we are completely in the dark. The only clue they gave us is the fact that it is surrounded by men dressed in military uniforms. These are presumably soldiers from the same military base where we saw her approaching the end of last season, when she was initially (and accidentally) created. It is not known what he has been doing since then, or if his intentions are pure or evil.
Shortly after the season 3 finale, TVLine spoke with executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller about the spin of Kara doppelgänger and what it means for the show that is advancing. "For comic book fans, I think they could recognize that the story we want to tell is inspired by DC's iconic comics." Red son"What told an alternative origin story for Superman," Rovner told the exit. Queller added: "What happened if, like a baby, Superman landed in Russia and became a hero there instead of in the United States? It's a tribute to that. "
Of course, this scenario focuses on Supergirl instead of Superman and is an adult version instead of a baby, but the idea itself is quite similar. Then, will she be friend or enemy? At this moment it is too early to say, but knowing how these things tend to work for Kara, it will probably end up being the last.
It is also possible that this alternative Kara is the result of the real intrusion that Kara made last season. After he threw his "do not kill", discarded the window and lost everyone in the process, he used Mon-El's Legion ring to travel through time and prevent it from happening. Her good side won, but now that there is this alternative Supergirl, could it be the darkest version in which Kara almost became?
Those who watch The flash Know that playing with the timeline can have serious consequences. Maybe Kara is about to try that firsthand.
