UPDATE: December 4, 2019 - Video added at the bottom of the two exterior Lena scenes, and the exterior Supergirl scenes.
I caught up with Supergirl shooting in downtown Vancouver yesterday at a place called Hornby Plaza for episode 513.... which just happens to also be the shows 100th episode. Frequent Supergirl director Jessie Warn is directing it.
For the first shoot of the morning, they did a walk & talk scene with Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, along with a couple returning guest stars. First up was Sam Witwer as Ben Lockwood who calls out to Lena after she comes out of L-Corp with a security guard. Lena invites Ben to walk with her & they have a chat. They stop in front of a black panel van (because I guess they had to make things easy) where the talk continues. When Lena decides to leave, her bodyguard actually blocks her path for leaving, she then looks at Ben and he implies with body language for her to get into the van. A bit after that another part of the scene was shot where Ben is still standing just behind her, but now another guest star Robert Baker as Otis Graves is now in front of her where the guard was. Otis covers Lenas head with a black bag, and they proceed to put Lena into the van.
After that scene wrapped, they moved into the middle of Hornby Plaza to shoot a scene with a pile of people holding signs outside of the courthouse. Along with them was Chad Lowe as Thomas Coville, and a woman playing a reporter. She asks Thomas why he thinks Lena did not give up Supergirls ID.
After that scene, it was the one that was big enough it even had the paps out for once. Melissa Benoist showed up to set to play Kara Danvers/Supergirl for a scene. This of course was her first public shoot since her 14 minute Instagram video the other day where she disclosed that she has been a victim of domestic violence in the past. She showed up to shoot her scene already in wardrobe. She was dressed as Kara in a dark floral printed shirt, with a beige jacket over it. The scene sees her make her way through a crowd up to a stage with a few microphones in front of it. She then talks for about 30 seconds or so, which at the end of it, she takes a huge sigh, proclaims she is Supergirl and rips open her shirt to reveal her Supergirl attire under neath. Of course, you can speculate on if this is real, or a dream. I would find it hard to believe she would do this in the real world.... but who really knows? Yet.
Later they moved the production over to the Vancouver Trade & Convention Centre to do a couple scenes in there. I didnt stick around for those scenes as it was indoors, and, by that point I was very tired and very sore from being in the pouring rain all day. So I took a break. But I DO know the only two main cast on set for it were Melissa & Katie... and it was a courtroom scene.
After that scene, they moved back to the plaza for a night scene. The night scene had Katie as Lena again on set, this time with returning guest star Odette Annable as Samantha Arias. The scene had the pair walking along and talking. Eventually, they stop, talk some more, while the pair hold hands, then they share a hug at the end of the take.
A little while later the crew wrapped for the night, and the cast left, but not before stopping for the very damp fans that were still there.
There will also be some video added later on. Possibly today, but definitely this week. So check back for that. It will cover several scenes.
