One of the core themes in Supergirl has had to do with humanity vs. alien identity. It’s a world full of both prejudice and acceptance in whatever form it takes. We saw it with J’onn and his alien identity, we saw with Alex and her sexuality, and we see it every episode in various aspects with Kara.

This is a theme that will also be in full effect in Season 3. Speaking with CBR, Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg discussed how this theme is played out this season, and how Kara and the season’s villain, Reign, are going through mirroring journeys.

“She is wrestling with the decision to have a life. That’s sort of the theme of the season. You know, is it better to be an alien or is it better to be human? That’s something that Kara’s dealing with, that’s something that J’onn’s dealing with, as we get to understand his story a little bit better over the course of the year. It’s also something that Reign will be dealing with moving forward. It’s sort of interesting to us. I mean, you have Kara, who has tried to actively reject her humanity, and the more you get to learn about Reign, she’s somebody who’s desperately trying to hold on to hers. So you sort of have your hero and your villain going on opposite journeys.”

We’re interested to see where this all leads!
