Melissa Benoist Talks About Supergirl’s Reunion with Mon-El

At the end of Season 2 of “Supergirl”, we saw Mon-El sent off into space to save his life, but we all know that the Daxamite love of Kara’s life looks like making a comeback in the episode titled “Wake Up”.

In an interview conducted on set this week, Melissa Benoist told reporters that the reunion between Kara and Mon-El may not be what fans are expecting…

“It won’t be the reunion you expect,” teased Benoist, confirming that the big reunion will go down in Season 3, Episode 7, “Wake Up,” which will see Winn and the team investigating a mysterious crashed ship deep underwater beneath National City.

“It’s pretty mysterious,” continued Benoist of the Kara/Mon-El reunion. “I think this season, we’ve really delved into a different tone, a different atmosphere for Kara. She’s really figuring out how to own her alien-ness, if you will, and in turn I think she’s finding her womanhood at the same time through grief and that grief is apparent even in the coloring of the show.”

I wonder if what she means by “not the reunion you’d expect” is that maybe the Mon-El that comes back is from further down his own personal timeline having been living in the 30th Century for awhile rather than being Mon-El whose only been gone a few months?

Well, I guess this answers my question on when we would see Mon-el again.
