Fans of the program were absolutely nothing however helpful. A single person tweeted, “Nicole Maines was fantastic, provided me all the feels and it’s good to see her journey in the program.” Part of that journey was the very first time Nia truly welcomed her powers. While her sis, Maeve ( Hannah James), discussed their mom at a memorial, Nia had a vision of the memorial being assaulted and acted upon it, conserving her sis’s life. Sadly, this tipped Maeve off to the truth Nia had actually acquired their mom’s powers rather of her, which resulted in the program highlighting the discrimination trans individuals deal with every day, often even at the hands of liked ones.
” How did you of all individuals get the powers?” Maeve asked Nia. “They’re expected to be given from mom to child. So how did somebody like you get them? You’re not even a genuine female.”
Maines will be standing for the very first time as Dreamer, complete outfit and all, next episode.
Supergirl airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
