What’s the Plot?

In season 5 we see Supergirl facing off against the powerful, secret organization known as Leviathan. In Season 4 finale, they were discovered to be monitoring Lex Luthor. Also, Eve was approached by an old lady who stated: “Leviathan is everywhere. Leviathan is everyone. And Leviathan is coming.”

There have been a lot of other developments as well. Kara began seeing William, also Lena allied with Lex, and we see Alex leaving DEO after helping as a director. Alex also entered the world of VR. We are also hearing that the show may have to cancel its season finale and episode 19 will be merged that with episode 20, and the season finale may be shortened and merged.
