The CW has released the official description for the 12th episode of Season 2 of “Supergirl”.

Titled “Luthors”, this episode is scheduled to air on The CW in the USA on Monday, February 13 at 8.00pm ET/PT.


After Metallo (guest star Frederick Schmidt) breaks out of prison and frees Lillian Luthor (guest star Brenda Strong), the police blame Lena (guest star Katie McGrath) for his escape and arrest her. Despite overwhelming evidence, Kara (Melissa Benoist) refuses to believe her friend is guilty and fights to clear Lena’s name. Flashbacks reveal how Lena came to be a Luthor. Meanwhile, Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Maggie (Floriana Lima) celebrate their first Valentine’s Day together.

This episode was written by Robert Rovner and Cindy Lichtman, and directed by Tawnia McKiernan.

I find myself very much hoping that they don’t do a heel turn for Lena.
I think it might be more interesting to have Kara basically being a positive influence that is always pulling her back from the abyss her brother dived into long ago and it will give her more distinction than if she just becomes Rule 63 Lex (especially when her mother has that territory covered).

I thought it was going to happen in Medusa. But then she came back around. She might be to give a little pro wrestling parlance a tweener…good sometimes, bad the others. But Matt like you I hope there is no Lena heel turn because it would be the same old Super/Luthor battle…you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. Time to put this on its head with Kara being the great hope and the key in all this.
