We have known for a while that the geeky filmmaker Kevin Smith would be directing an episode of The CW’s Supergirl this season, with episode nine titled “Supergirl Lives”. However it appears that Smith is bringing some family into his episode as his daughter Harley Quinn Smith (Yoga Hosers) revealed on Instagram that she is in her father’s episode.
The actress’ specific role wasn’t revealed as all she shared in the post was the front of the script along with “National City here I come!”. This episode is most likely going to be the mid-season premiere, set to air in early 2017, with episode eight being the fall finale, which is also leading into the mega-crossover with The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow at the end of this month.
