The first half of season 2 of Supergirl has had fans feeling much better about the show compared to season 1. They’ve added many new characters, and their story structure has improved. This season, we saw Kara battle against Lillian Luthor, and finished off the first half of this season defeating her and her evil plot. The CW put out the description of the first episode to begin the latter half of this season, to be directed by Kevin Smith.
Kevin Smith has directed episodes of DC TV shows before, and those particular episodes have always been received well by critics and fans alike. I’m particularly excited to be seeing what he can do with Supergirl, and what he might add to it. His daughter, Harley Quinn Smith will be guest-starring in the episode as well. Check out the synopsis of the episode below!
“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.”
