Synopsis For SUPERGIRL’s Upcoming Lex Luthor Guest Appearance Episode Is Out!


There’s been a lot of excitement things going on for Arrowverse fans lately. From having its entire lineup of shows renewed not too long ago on The CW to the Batwoman pilot being in the works, fans of this iteration of DC superheroes have a lot to look forward to. Fans of Supergirl in particular have been eagerly anticipating the long-awaited arrival of one of the most famous comic book villains ever: Lex Luthor, the arch-nemesis of Kara’s cousin Clark… and the brother of Kara’s best friend Lena. As my fellow RTF writer Matt Vernier has noted in the past, Supergirl has alluded to Lex’s presence in the world and his storied past with Clark over the past several seasons and has slowly been building up to his appearance.

Fans previously got their first glimpse of actor Jon Cryer as Lex a month ago, along with a brief synopsis, but now a new and more detailed synopsis is out! Read it below:


Secretly furloughed from prison due to failing health, Lex Luthor (guest star Jon Cryer) visits his sister, Lena (Katie McGrath), to seek her help finding a cure. Savvy as ever, Lena is suspicious of Lex’s motives but when she’s faced with a life and death situation, she must decide how she truly feels about her brother.

Failing health,” eh? While I wouldn’t rule the possibility that Lex is merely pulling off a very convincing scam here, my first guess is that his health issues likely stem from extended exposure to kryptonite and the radioactivity it produces due to his many previous clashes with Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman off-screen in the Arrowverse.

What do you think? Be sure to comment below!
