Supergirl returns tonight after being on a hiatus for close to a month. The last episode was “Distant Sun”, directed by Kevin Smith, and left off with Mon-El’s mother, Queen Rhea (Teri Hatcher) trying to kill Kara (Supergirl) with Kryptonite, but her life is spared when Mon-El agrees to leave Earth. Kara and J’onn rescue Mon-El from his parents’ ship and Mon-El is granted to stay on Earth, courtesy of King Lar Gand. Queen Rhea was not happy about letting Mon-El be set free and kills King Lar Gand. Queen Rhea vows to return to Earth to get Mon-El.
There are about 5 episodes left of the season and there is already plenty of hype for the two-part finale on May 15 and May 22. Expected to return are Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) and Superman (Tyler Hoechlin). Both of these are huge as Cat was a big highlight of the first season and Tyler knocked it out of the park as his portrayal of Superman. As a matter of fact, the first two episodes of season two have been the best so far and both of these characters were in it. Then to top it off, actor Mark Gibbon (The Chronicles of Riddick) is set to portray the supervillain General Zod in the season finale of Supergirl, which could explain why Superman will be making another appearance.
Oh yes, there is plenty to look forward to and I can’t wait. In the meantime, sit back and check out the video below to get caught up on season two and then check out the new episode tonight, “Ace Reporter”
The trailer to tonight’s episode, “Ace Reporter”, is below.
“Ace Reporter” Synopsis – Lena’s (guest star Katie McGarth) ex-boyfriend, Jack Spheer (guest star IZombie’s Rahul Kohli), comes to National City to unveil his big breakthrough in nano-technology, which has the potential to eradicate all diseases. Lena asks Kara to attend Jack’s conference with her for support. When Kara sees Snapper (guest Star Ian Gomez) in attendance she’s inspired to tap back into her reporter skills and questions Jack on his discovery, which ultimately leads to a bigger investigation that puts everyone in danger. Armen V. Kevorkian directed the episode written by Paula Yoo & Caitlin Parrish.
