Oh my goodness this is INCREDIBLE news. Deadline has reported that Katie McGrath (Lena Luthor) has been promoted to series regular! I think this going to meet with universal approval from Supergirl fans. In addition to being an excellent actress and character, the Kara/Lena shippers are going to go insane <g> Lena Luthor, younger sister of Lex Luthor and apparently not evil (yet or maybe never).

Melissa and Katie have great chemistry and the pairing of Kara and Lena (as friends although if the shippers have something to say about it, it could be as the second lesbian couple on the show).

This particular scene sent the shippers into meltdown…Kara (Supergirl) saving Lena when she fell off the balcony.

Yeah..no subtext here at all..move along…
