Nia’s Visit to The Flash Brings Update on Supergirl and Other Superfriends

As The Flash hit the midpoint of its final season, a visit from Nia Nal aka Dreamer brought much drama, but also some updates on Supergirl and a few of her superfriends.

Flash Supergirl Update KaraFor starters — and as set up during Ryan Wilder aka Batwoman’s recent visit to Central City — Nia (played by Supergirl‘s Nicole Maines) showing up unannounced at Central City Citizen Media to ask Iris for help wasn’t entirely random. Because apparently, Iris took Ryan up on her offer and recently — albeit off-screen, grrr — joined Ryan, Nia, Kara Danvers/Supergirl and her sister Alex/Sentinel for mimosa brunch.

Nia and Iris were soon pulled into some mysterious dream realm, leaving their bodies unconscious at the Citizen and then at STAR Labs (which really needs some proper medical personnel after Caitlin’s death!). And while Barry, especially with pregnant Iris in danger, would have welcomed a helping hand from any of Nia’s friends, especially those familiar with her Dreamer powers, that turned out to be easier said than done.

Supergirl Series FinaleTo recap: When last we tuned into Supergirl, Kara via an exclusive Cat Grant interview had been revealed to the world as Supergirl… J’onn J’onzz was heading up a reconstituted DEO… and Brainy (Brainiac 5) opted not to return to the future but instead stay put in there here and now, to be with Nia.

Alas, when Barry thought to reach out to any of the above, Chester reported that they are all now “off world” and thus unable to lend a hand — which was of course convenient, though especially odd to not have Brainy of all people get involved/concerned in Nia’s crisis. Bar then sped off to check in with the Justice League at large, but… that did not pan out either, grrr.

On the bright side…? Once this crisis (which was actually a test of sorts for Nia, conducted  by the OG Dreamer) was resolved, it was made clear that Nia and Iris will continue to have regular brunch dates with Ryan, Kara and Alex.

Provided no one has to go “off world,” I suppose!
