On tonight’s all-new episode of CBS’ hit superhero drama, airing 8 p.m. ET/PT, Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) bumps into Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan Tatum) at a local restaurant and naturally, the conversation turns to Lucy’s ex Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks).
Kara responds with a nervous laugh, insisting that Lucy has absolutely nothing to worry about. Too bad Lucy’s not buying it!
“Jimmy thinks my work came between us but he’s wrong. Maybe I should have appreciated more but the reason I prioritized work was because he prioritized him,” Lucy says, revealing the real reason her relationship with Jimmy fizzled. “No matter where we were or what we were doing, Jimmy took off the moment Superman called and I couldn’t complain because of course, they’re off saving people’s lives. He says I left him, but he left us first.”
"It doesn't matter that she's a girl," Benoist told ET on the Supergirl set. "That's not what you're going to remember her for. She's so brave, and inspiring, and hopeful and that's what is most important."
And Benoist is still in awe over the positive influence she’s having on young girls everywhere.
"I think the positive influence that this role has is sort of beyond my comprehension right now,” she admitted. “Every time I'm around [girls], especially a little girl, it just warms my heart."
