On this weeks CW’s SUPERGIRL – SEASON 5 – EPISODE 19 – SEASON FINALE – IMMORTAL KOMBAT – Brainy’s betrayal is a real sacrifice, Alex becomes the superhero we deserve not the one we need, Kara hates being sidelined, Leviathan G-ds go Wild, and Kara and Lena team up but do they make up?
We being the episode with a clearly conflicted Brainy who is unwilling to let his friends die for the greater good, especially since the death of Supergirl and team seems unnecessary and like a Lex Luthor personal vendetta.  Brainy has been betraying his friends in order to stop Leviathan but is coming to the realization that Luthor may have other plans.  He meets up with his female Brainy counterpart (played by his real life sister Meaghan Rath) at the bar where she convinced him to go along with Lex Luthor’s plan in the first place.  Brainy resolves to not let his friends die and decides to use a Braniac pod to capture the Levathan G-ds.  Inside the Leviathan ship we see there is a radiation field that disables and destroys any who attempt to enter without a shield.  Brainy has no such shield and puts himself at considerable life threatening risk to insert the miniature code to capture Leviathan.
Lex Luthor on the other hand does have such a pin, as he was extended one when Gemma invites him unto the Leviathan ship, which has a low tech elevator and seems to simply be an old fashioned casino.  Lex then enters the actual tech ship and after suffering for a few because of the radiation field is given a pin that protects him.  He is told by Gemma to keep it as he is one of Leviathan now.
Kara and Lena seemingly team up but Kara is reluctant to make up.  Lena has seen the error of her ways, but Kara reminds Lena she was not the only one hurt.  Lena has consistently hurt Kara ever since, by pretending to be Kara’s friend, having Kara steal for Lena, Lena then stealing from Kara, and also trying to kill Kara with Kryptonite.  Kara states if Lena is looking for absolution, she will not find it from Kara.  However they must work together.  Lena works hard to make Kara another Kryptonite suit to protect her from Leviathan who is in possession of Kryptonite.  To get Kara to the lab is not an easy task either as Leviathan is searching for her.  Kara, used to flying, takes the bus while Jonn Jonnz and Mgann pose as her and fly off gaining the attention of Leviathan power monger Ramakhan, and newcomers Tezumak and Sela.  A battle occurs with Mgann being hit.  Nia All and Alex join the battle, Alex in her new tech suit designed by Jonn.
Meanwhile William who was jumped by Eve Tessmacher is locked in a warehouse where Eve is interrogating William on who he is and what he was doing.  Eve is clearly reluctant to take action against William but is desperate to do so since Lex Luthor is endangering her mother.  William talks to Eve long enough for Supergirl, sans Kryptonite suit, shows up and stops 3 of 4 bullets from hitting William.  The one that did hit goes through and Kara cauterizes it with her heat vision.  Eve apologizes and explains she is acting under duress.  Leviathan shows up and Lena teleports William and Eve away, calling for back up.  The Krypton suit, the team, and Supergirls second wind show up just in time to defeat Leviathan in explosion.  They however, seemingly indestructible grow back in an instant.  At that time Brainy’s plan goes into effect and the Leviathan team are dissipated.
Kara now has to stop the Obsidian Unity Festival.  She goes into Obsidian and tries to talk people off the system.  It is almost impossible.  In the real world her body is vulnerable and Leviathan activates Andrea Rojas to kill her.  Lena stands in Andrea’s way as a simultaneous inspirational speech goes on between Kara and the people in Obsidian to log off, Lena and Andrea to not attack, and Female Brainy to Brainy to hang in.  “I believe in you” is the phrase of the day.  Successful as everyone logs off, Andrea does not attack, and Brainy captures Leviathan.
On the ship a failing Brainy is visited by Lex Luthor who states he knew Brainy would take this course of action.  He takes the capsule as it is part of his plan and hands it to his mother who has a seemingly sinister plot to develop that will form next season.  Nia has a dream in regards to Brainy’s actions and says they need to go save him.
The cliffhanger is left at this point.  The season ended 3 episodes shy of what it was slated for, the cast and crew did the best with what time they had left.  All this and more on the Afterbuzz Aftershow.  Stay tuned.
