Supergirl has faced many villains from the DC Universe in her first two seasons, one of them was recently Rudy Jones a.k.a. Parasite who appeared in the first half of Season 2. While the character supposedly died during his battle with Kara and Mon-El, it appears that we haven’t seen the last of him. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the Superman villain is set to return for the thirteenth episode of the ongoing season.
It remains to be seen how the character will re-appear as he was obliterated after being overcharged by plutonium. Could this version of Parasite somehow the ability to recreate himself? Only time will tell as he, along with several other villains like Livewire, Metallo and more, are set to return in the second half of the season. Check out the new extended trailer that was released today along with the official description for Kevin Smith’s episode which will air on January 23.
“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.”
