Supergirl season 4 episode 8 looks to be the midseason finale, or at least the last one of note story-wise before you get around the to Elseworlds crossover. The title here is “Bunker Hill,” and it certainly seems as though this could be the installment that really starts to bring Nia closer to becoming Dreamer — the comic-book character she’s been destined to be from the start here.

Going into this episode, it seems as though Nia may already have some powers, and that’s a curious thing given that she doesn’t appear to have any at present. What’s going on here? Well, it could be some simple as that these powers are actually impacting her already and she just doesn’t know it — she is struggling with some sort of sickness, based on what we’ve seen on the series already. That could be her powers already starting to change her; or, they could come about as a result of something Lena Luthor is working on. We know that she is in need of some sort of human subject, so could Nia be that human? It feels like that could be the best sort of way to continue her story and also satisfy some of what Nia has going on at the same time.
Also, if Nia gets powers because of what Lena is working on, then this helps to sort of squash the idea that Nia’s experiments are entirely malicious are going to cause constant harm and not really anything good to go along with them.
Below, CarterMatt offered up the full Supergirl season 4 episode 8 synopsis with some additional insight:
KEVIN SMITH DIRECTS; NIA BEGINS TO EMBRACE HER POWERS – Nia (Nicole Maines) has a powerful dream about Agent Liberty (Sam Witwer) but refuses to look at it as a prophetic dream and pushes it aside. After noticing something is bothering Nia, Kara (Melissa Benoist) enlists Brainy’s (Jesse Rath) help, and the two try to persuade Nia to embrace her destiny. Meanwhile, Manchester Black (guest star David Ajala) pays Ben Lockwood a menacing visit. Kevin Smith directed the episode written by Rob Wright & Eric Carrasco (#408). Original airdate 12/2/2018.
The part of this story that could have some of the largest implications is the part with Manchester and Ben, mostly because Manchester has already shown on a number of occasions this season that he is not playing around. This is a guy who wants what he wants by more or less whatever means necessary. He’s technically on the same side as our heroes, but that really only goes so far.
