The CW has released photos for “Still I Rise”, the tenth episode of Supergirl‘s sixth and final season. The episode will air on Tuesday, September 7th. This week saw Nia (Nicole Maines) encounter Nyxly (Peta Sergeant) in her dreamscape and ultimately make a deal with the Fifth Dimensional imp. Nia will help Nyxly get out of the dream realm and Nyxly will help bring Nia’s mother Isabel (Kate Burton) back to life for 24 hours.
For Nia, this is a huge thing. Isabel Nal died unexpectedly in the Season 4 episode “Blood Memory”, the same episode in which Nia manifests her dream powers. But her mother’s death left Nia with no real guidance or training for her abilities as it had been assumed that Nia’s sister, Maeve, would be the one to inherit them. That lack of training is something that Nia struggles with along with missing her mother, so much so that in this season’s “Prom Night” episode that saw Nia and Brainy (Jesse Rath) take a trip back in time to Midvale in 2009, Nia tried to call her mother, but only got her voicemail. Having Isabel back means Nia will have the opportunity to train with her mother, something she has longed for.
