Well, Supergirl had to brainwash Superman into not appearing in its first finale, so it makes sense Season 2 would modify the tradition. Our first trailer for next Monday’s “Nevertheless, She Persisted” finale teases Tyler Hoechlin’s Man of Steel taking up arms against his cousin, to say nothing of a final showdown with Rhea.

Following the Super-twist in the closing moments of Monday’s “Resist,” The CW released its first official trailer for Supergirl Season 2 finale “Nevertheless, She Persisted.” Calista Flockhart’s Cat Grant will be sticking around, while the full synopsis playfully skirts around Mark Gibbon as General Zod:


Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) challenges Rhea (guest star Teri Hatcher) to battle to save National City. Meanwhile, Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) returns and Cat Grant (guest star Calista Flockhart) offers Supergirl some sage advice.

Sharon Leal’s Miss Martian is expected to return (come on, you didn’t think J’onn would stay asleep forever, right?), while the Season 2 finale is also expected to hint at a potential Season 3 villain.

The CW should come forth with an extended trailer for Supergirl’s Season 2 finale soon, but stay tuned for The CW’s Upfront announcements in the meantime.
