The stills for 2X22 got released and it’s looking like more angst for Karamel. Fans are speculating that Mon will end the episode in the Phantom Zone, and this emotional still isn’t exactly helping to suppress those rumours:
Our theory on the image:
We know from the episode promo that Kara is going to duel with Rhea; risking her life for humanity. We also know that Mon-El thinks this is a terrible idea… which (not to be too much like J’onn) he’s probably right about. Rhea doesn’t exactly have a shortage of kryptonite and is an excellent fighter.
We’ve also seen on set photos of Melwood filming on a roof top (including this instagram post by Teri Hatcher - which is probably the closest we'll get to the allusive "melwood selfie" for a while).
In those location shots they’re both in the same outfits as the still. Granted they are their work uniforms so this could mean very little – but we’ve got to work with what we’ve got guys, so bear with us. Piecing all of this together, the still could very likely be Mon-El either attempting to stop Kara from 1. Duelling with Rhea or 2. Killing her. That, or it could be him saying goodbye and making “the ultimate sacrifice” (as paparazzi Ken put it). This sacrifice might be leaving for Daxam, which parallels 2X17 in which we got a very similar still, or letting his mother kill him – and as we know how she treated her husband, wouldn’t be something we’d put past her.
