After the events of Invasion!, you might think that Supergirl would seek out nothing but a home cooked meal and some downtime in National City. Unfortunately, she's about to find herself in anything but posh circumstances.
On the upcoming episode, Supergirl finds herself going against a familiar opponent, the always conniving Roulette. At least she won't be going at things by herself, as Mon-El is also along for the ride. The CW just released some new images from the Kevin Smith directed episode, including a few behind the scenes shots with Smith and Supergirl actress Melissa Benoist. The images can be viewed in the gallery.
The official synopsis for the episode is included below.
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.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. "Supergirl Lives" premieres on January 23.
