"Of course. But you know what else? Fear sucks. It sucks. And I am so sick of feeling hopeless. Dawn doesn't come unless we want it to. But we don't have to wait for a new day. We are the new day"
Nia Nal
"American Dreamer" is the nineteenth episode of the fourth season of Supergirl, and the eighty-fourth episode overall. It aired on April 28, 2019.


As Kara doggedly works as a reporter to clear Supergirl’s name, Dreamer picks up the slack as National City’s protector, which leads to a showdown with Ben Lockwood. James takes drastic measures to relieve his PTSD.[1]


  • Brainy talks to James about memories being like a watercolor painting, and then Kelly says she needs a break. Believing he'd said something that offended her, Brainy inquires whether it was his metaphor. However, a metaphor is a term applied to making an example by saying that something is something else. The illustration Brainy gave of the situation is actually an example of a simile, which explains something by saying that it's like something else.
