The first half of Supergirl Season 2 featured the Girl of Steel (Melissa Benoist) having to go against the villainous Lillian Luthor (Brenda Strong) who was behind Project Cadmus. While Kara stopped Lillian, new threats are coming in Season 2B. Today the CW released the official description for the ninth episode of the new season which will be the mid-season premiere.
The episode, which was directed by filmmaker Kevin Smith – who is no stranger to the DC TV Universe – is titled “Supergirl Lives”. The director, who previously directed two episodes of the fellow CW/DC show, The Flash, isn’t the only Smith member that was involved with this episode.
Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith will be guest-starring in the mid-season premiere for Season 2B as she revealed it on her Instagram back in October 2016. You can check out the official description for the episode below along with the trailer that was recently released by the network.
“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.
