“Supergirl” will air the finale of its two-part series tonight, wrapping up six seasons of adventures with the Super Friends. And as much as fans fight to say goodbye to their favorite heroes, the cast struggled too. For series star Katie McGrath, it was the smallest moments that made her feel.
In particular, McGrath struggled a bit in her final scenes where all the action from the episode had passed, and she was just having her final conversations with each character, especially Kara herself.
“You just want to get it right and you don’t have a huge amount of time,” McGrath told TheWrap. “And at the same time, while you’re trying to get it right, there’s also in your head, and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, this has been five years for me, this is kind of goodbye.’ It’s five years! And you have all this in your head and you’re trying to get it right and you’re trying to do it justice and trying to do justice to the words and it’s a lot. Its alot. It is an emotional moment. “
McGrath notes that in addition to wanting to do the right thing from fans, he also realized that he was saying goodbye, if only temporarily, to his co-workers, not just the characters, who had become family.
“Part of that whole last episode was not just about Lena, it was about Katie as well,” she added. “Like, these actors, this team, they all became my family. We spend nine months of the year together, you know, doing this show: we were each other’s lives. And you’re not saying goodbye in the moment like Lena and the rest of the super friends. You’re saying goodbye like Katie and the rest of me friends. So there’s a kind of added weight to the issues that it becomes – it was a great week. The last week was a great week. “
So when you see Lena cry, because yeah, there will be tears, it’s definitely not all acting. That being said, fans can be sure that the series finale “Supergirl” will not be. everybody emotion and heaviness. Like any series finale, the last two hours of “Supergirl” contain a ton of action.
Having kidnapped Esme de la Torre and killed William Dey in the process, Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) and Nyxly (Peta Sergeant) are ready to make some serious demands in their efforts to restore All-Stone. And when their final showdown comes, they aren’t throwing any punches at all.
