The first half of Supergirl Season 2 ended with Kara Zor-El and the D.E.O. stopping the villainous Lillian Luthor before she joined the other CW heroes on Earth-1 to stop the Dominators. However, since the crossover, Kara has returned to Earth-38 as Season 2B is getting ready to kick off in just a few weeks. Today The CW released new promotional images for the ninth episode of the new season which will be the mid-season premiere.
The episode is titled “Supergirl Lives” and was directed by the geeky filmmaker Kevin Smith who has previously directed two episodes of The Flash. We also see the return of Dichen Lachman as Roulette who debuted earlier this season. You can check the images in the gallery at the bottom along with the new trailer for “Supergirl Lives”.
“Supergirl Lives” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, V) (HDTV)
KEVIN SMITH DIRECTS; ROULETTE RETURNS — Kara (Melissa Benoist) is moved by the story of a missing woman named Izzy (guest star Harley Quinn Smith) and decides to investigate despite Snapper Carr’s (guest star Ian Gomez) order to leave it alone. Kara takes Mon-El (Chris Wood) with her to the last place Izzy was seen and the duo find themselves thrust through a portal to another planet, Slaver’s Moon, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves. The leader of the trafficking ring is none other than Roulette (guest star Dichen Lachman). To make matters worse, Slaver’s Moon has a red sun, which means Kara and Mon-El are stripped of their powers and stuck on the planet with no way home. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Alex (Chyler Leigh) blames herself for Kara’s disappearance, fearing she’s become too focused on her new relationship with Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) and too complacent in watching out for her sister. Kevin Smith directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Eric Carrasco & Jess Kardos (#209). Original airdate 1/23/2017.”
Supergirl Season 2 returns with new episodes on Monday, January 23 at 8/7c on The CW. Make sure to check back at Heroic Hollywood after every single episode of Season 3 for our weekly reviews.
