Following the reveal of DC’s small screen iteration of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), another notable character from the lore is breaking through TV via “Supergirl” in Cyborg Superman.
The character’s narrative in the comics is a bit convoluted making it quite difficult for The CW show to adapt it piece by piece. Given that Hank’s (David Harewood) alter ego has been somewhat ignored, the character is still making its way to Kara (Melissa Benoist) and National City. Fans can expect the much-awaited debut of the DC villain in the episode called “The Darkest Place” as the synopsis for it suggests that the Kryptonian superhero is scheduled for a face-to-face with the human cyborg
The installment is still a couple of weeks away, airing on Nov. 21, but it has already been making buzz given the interesting plot arc starting with Earth newbie Mon-El (Chris Wood) being taken by CADMUS. As Supergirl (Benoist) tries to save her co-alien, she unexpectedly runs into Cyborg Superman, whom fans can expect will be a bit less nice than the real Superman.
Despite not being confirmed, Screen Crush theorizes that the supervillain will be embodied by Kara’s adoptive father, Jeremiah Danvers (Dean Cain), given that he has been the subject of experimentations by CADMUS.
Meanwhile, tonight’s episode carries over the ongoing arc with Mon-El and Kara trying to get along with each other after a not so ideal jumpstart in their relationship. The installment titled “Crossfire” will have the new CatCo reporter pulling some strings so Mon-El scores an intern job at the same publication she is working for.
For the more action-packed side of things, Supergirl faces off with a new gang that utilizes a dangerous new alien technology. As expected, CADMUS is the one responsible for the chaos which makes things more interesting given the group’s goal to bring down Kara.
Elsewhere in the episode, Lena (Katie McGrath) invites Kara to one of her fundraisers while James (Mechad Brooks) deals with an important decision.
“Supergirl” airs every Monday, 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
