“Supergirl” got a very timely title for its upcoming Season 2 finale.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed to Entertainment Weekly that episode 22 of the show’s sophomore run is called “Nevertheless, She Persisted,” which was inspired by Senator Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to be silenced during the debate to confirm Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General last February.

Tension in the Senate over President Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees boiled over at the time when Warren tried to read a 1986 letter by Coretta Scott King criticizing Sessions. Senate Republicans reprimanded Warren, trying to cut her off from debate, for reading the letter. They later called upon a rule aiming to prevent senators from disputing their colleagues.

Senate Democrats, meanwhile, rallied around Warren. In fact, several other Democratic senators later read the letter without objection from the Republican Party, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell defended.

“Senator Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted,” McConnell said after the incident.

In no time, the last three words of McConnell’s comment about Warren became a rallying cry about women’s ability to break barriers if they persevere, which seems very fitting for what’s in store for Kara (Melissa Benoist) in “Supergirl” Season 2 finale.

Plot details about the season finale are being kept under wraps, but Kreisberg teased to E! News that Kara is going to need advice, mentorship, support and love from all the important people in her life in the finale “where she’s forced to make several very difficult decisions.”

Rhea’s (Teri Hatcher) complete master plan is also expected to be revealed in the finale. “I don’t want to give too much away because it’s part of the surprise coming in the next few episodes,” Kreisberg told Comic Book Resources when asked what the Queen of Daxamite’s endgame is. “Her plans definitely include Kara, Mon-El (Chris Wood) and Lena (Katie McGrath). She has a master plan. She’s very bright, very dangerous and she’s very ruthless. Rhea is used to getting what she wants. She’s going to set the table for the last few episodes to enact her master plan. What exactly she wants from all those people — you have to tune in to find out.”

Kreisberg also revealed to Entertainment Weekly last February that the content of the box — which Lillian Luthor (Brenda Strong) found among Lex Luthor’s weapons in the Cadmus bunker in Season 2, episode 12 — will play a key role in the finale.

With huge guest stars, stunts and visual effects in the finale, the EP said that the season ender has a “feature film quality” to it. He also revealed that viewers will get a glimpse of the Season 3 villain in the Season 2 ender.

“Supergirl” Season 2 finale is slated to air on Monday, May 22 at 8 p.m. EDT on The CW.
