Big things are coming to Supergirl as we learn more about how Martian Manhunter (David Harewood) became Hank Henshaw tonight, followed by the big crossover between The Flash and this show next Monday night. But the 19th episode, the penultimate episode before the season finale, will be a huge one too.
CBS released the official synopsis today for episode 19 titled “Myriad”, an unknown big threat that Non and Astra (before she died) have been talking about for the last couple of episodes. But the most interesting note in the synopsis was the listing of WWE’s Eve Torres Gracie who has been cast as the DC villain Maxima.
While the description doesn’t mention her at all in the plot, she could be someone that is setup in this episode and will serve a larger role in the season finale. Although, the episode description for Myriad mentions that National City will be exposed to mind control by Non and Indigo, which is one of Maxima’s powers.
