"Supergirl" It's a Super Life (TV Episode 2020) Poster

(TV Series)


Katie McGrath: Lena Luthor



  • Lena Luthor : Kara Danvers is Supergirl.

    Kara Danvers : Yeah.

    Lena Luthor : I can't believe I was fooled by a pair of glasses.

    Kara Danvers : Don't worry. A lot of people are.

  • Lena Luthor : Let me guess. You're here to tell me once again that I should forgive you. Or maybe that I shouldn't work with my brother?

    Kara Danvers : Not this time. I recognize that I made a mistake in hiding my identity from you for so long. But the past is the past, and I can't change it. Forgive me or not, that's your choice. Just like it's your choice to work with Lex. I'm done blaming myself for your bad decisions.

    Lena Luthor : Then why are you here?

    Kara Danvers : To tell you that from now on you're accountable for your own actions. If you decide to forgive me, I will be there for you. But if you continue to work with Lex, if you go through with whatever it is the two of you are planning, I will do everything in my power to stop you. Just like I would any other villain.

  • Lena Luthor : My friend came to me. She was alone and afraid. I had to do something.

    Supergirl : That feeling of needing to protect your friend, no matter what the world thinks... I understand that more than you know. You once told me Kara Danvers was your hero.

    Lena Luthor : I never told you that. I told...

    Supergirl : It's me, Lena. I've always been Kara.

    Lena Luthor : Kara, how could you?

    Supergirl : I'm sorry I didn't tell you sooner.

    Lena Luthor : Three weeks ago, I found out that Sam, one of my closest friends, was a homicidal Kryptonian. I went through that terror alone. I risked my life day after day for weeks because I believed that I was the only one who could be trusted to protect her, to save her. I could have used your help. I would have used your help, if you'd bothered to tell me the truth before now. If you trusted me, then, I wouldn't have had to go through that danger alone!

    Supergirl : I'm so sorry, but I thought I was protecting you. But now, we can... we can move past it and work as partners.

    Lena Luthor : You expect me to be your partner after this? When all you've done is prove to me that you can't be trusted at all?

    Supergirl : [seeing the Worldkillers' solar eclipse begin]  Oh, no.

  • Samantha Arias : So, Kara is Supergirl?

    Lena Luthor : Yeah, I know. My head's kind of spinning. When you were Reign, and I made kryptonite to stop you... y-you know, in response well, Supergirl was so horrible. And then Kara was the same. She was so kind and supportive. But it made me think, which was the real Kara? And if the real Kara thought I was a villain... then maybe that's all I really am.

    Kara Danvers : [watching with Mxy]  No, Lena, no. How could you ever think that?

    Samantha Arias : Lena, you made kryptonite to split me from Reign and to save my life. You were never the villain. You were always the hero.

    Lena Luthor : Thank you. I really needed to hear that.

  • Lena Luthor : To be honest, I didn't have much faith in politicians to begin with. I just don't think any of them can be trusted.

    [Kara looks around, realizing she's in her memory] 

    Lena Luthor : Don't look so scandalized, Kara. You know how cynical I can be.

    [seeing her look] 

    Lena Luthor : Is everything okay?

    Kara Danvers : You shouldn't have to be so cynical. You're good and righteous, and... and the tragedy is, the world has made you cynical because you've been betrayed so many times. By your mother, by your brother... and now, by me.

    Lena Luthor : What are you talking about?

    Kara Danvers : [moving to sit next to her]  I'm not who you think I am. I'm Supergirl.

    [taking off her glasses] 

    Kara Danvers : I never meant to deceive you. I just didn't know how to tell you.

    [an alarm sounds] 

    Kara Danvers : You stay here. I'll deal with this.

    [she speeds away; after a brief fight, she returns] 

    Supergirl : Lena?

    Kara Danvers : [watching with Mxy in her lot]  What happened? Where'd she go?

    Mxyzptlk : Ah. Events are unfolding differently now. Oh, boy. Um, I need to catch up.


    Mxyzptlk : Ah, there she is.

    Kara Danvers : She went to Metropolis.

    [seeing who Lena is with] 

    Kara Danvers : Oh, my god. She went to see Sam.

  • Kara Danvers : What could I possibly need your help for?

    [Mxy snaps his fingers] 

    Lena Luthor : [on the TV]  I killed my brother for you, for our friends! Don't you understand what you've done?

    Mxyzptlk : Your best friend thinks that she is your enemy. And the worst part... it's your fault. You hid the truth from her. You let her find out from that sadist, Lex, and now, you think, she could be capable of anything.

    Kara Danvers : What's your point?

    Mxyzptlk : My point, toots, is this.

    Kara Danvers : [he walks across the furniture]  Careful.

    Mxyzptlk : I am offering you a do-over. Hmm? I can send you back in time. Wouldn't you like to be able to tell Lena that you're Supergirl on your own terms? Wouldn't you like to see... what the world would look like if you controlled the narrative?

  • Kara Danvers : My dual identities made Lena think that she couldn't trust either side of me. I was a hypocrite.

    Mxyzptlk : Okay, so, when exactly did this kryptonite-fueled tete-a-tete happen?

    Kara Danvers : Ah... it was... it was, uh, just after we found out that Lena was housing Reign.

    Supergirl : [on the tape]  Lena, the Worldkillers are coming. We have to get you someplace...

    Kara Danvers : Mmm, skip forward.

    Mxyzptlk : Skip.

    [he fast-forwards through various scenes] 

    Kara Danvers : See, there? This fight...

    Mxyzptlk : Mm-hmm.

    Kara Danvers : ...is what I'm trying to avoid.

    Mxyzptlk : Okay.

    Kara Danvers : So, go back.

    [he rewinds, and she watches herself asking James to investigate Lena's kryptonite stock] 

    Kara Danvers : Ah, I never should have done that. Um... yeah, it has to be before this.

    Mxyzptlk : Yeah, hang on, before.

    Kara Danvers : We have to go back further. Here!

    Mxyzptlk : Yep.

    Lena Luthor : My friend came to me. She was alone and afraid. I had to do something.

    Supergirl : I need you to level with me. Do you have any more kryptonite?

    Kara Danvers : This is it. This is the moment that Lena started to distrust Supergirl. This is when I have to tell her.

  • Mxyzptlk : I get it. You don't trust me. Okay, but how's this? Ready?

    [offering a tape recorder] 

    Mxyzptlk : Now, by Fifth Dimensional law, I am required to give you this recording of me saying my name backwards, in case you ever need to banish me to my Fifth Dimension, which I know that you...

    [taking it, Kara immediately presses "play"] 

    Mxyzptlk : [on the recording]  Kltpzyxm.

    [he vanishes] 

    Lena Luthor : [on the TV]  I'm not a villain. You shouldn't have treated me like one.

    J'onn J'onzz : [entering]  Hey, girls. What's going on?

  • Kara Danvers : I won't fight you, Lena.

    Lena Luthor : Then you'll die screaming.
