Supergirl - Season Finale - Post Mortem Interviews



Thanks to Ivan for the heads up.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s start off with the reveal that someone else has landed on Earth. What can you tease of who this is? Are they friend or foe?

ANDREW KREISBERG: Obviously it’s our big cliffhanger of the season, so I’m not fully inclined to let everyone know who shot J.R. It’s an important character, and they’ll play an important role in season 2.

Is this a character we may have seen in the comics before?

Again, I don’t want to give too much away, but it’ll be cool. The fans are going to be excited. It’s going to definitely shake things up for season 2.

Especially with something like Project Cadmus in the ether, the first person I think of is Superboy.

TVLINE | Walk me through how you guys constructed this episode. Did you know, going in, that you wanted to end on a major cliffhanger, or was it something that came about as you broke the finale?

Traditionally, we want to add as much intrigue into next season as possible. What we did was answer a lot more questions. It’s a classic journey where [Kara] has to sacrifice herself for the greater good, and that’s a trope of comics. We started this season with her asking that real question of “Can I do this?” Tonight’s episode answers, emphatically, that yes, she can. Hopefully, getting into a second season, we can explore some other questions she might have.

TVLINE | Potentially silly question: Do you guys already know who’s in that pod? Or is that yet to be determined?

[Laughs] Hashtag-who-or-what-is-in-the-pod. We’ve absolutely had conversations — we’re waiting to tell CBS. In the spirit of good, old-fashioned cliffhangers, we certainly answer many more questions in terms of her trajectory with Jimmy Olsen, her relationship with Alex. We prove what an incredible hero she is. She was sent to save this world, and she does.
