The CW Television Network has released the first clip from this Monday's episode of Supergirl, which is titled "Welcome to Earth."
It begins with Supergirl landing on a National City airport tarmac, where a group of people have gathered to welcome Madam President Olivia Marsdin (played by Lynda Carter). When the president steps out of Air Force One, her security detail and Supergirl are attacked by a powerful and elusive threat. Luckily, Supergirl uses her cape to protect the president from being assassinated, but the attacker gets away.
An attack is made on the President (guest star Lynda Carter) as hot-button, alien vs. human rights issues heat up in National City. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO are assigned to protect the President and bring in the responsible party. Alex (Chyler Leigh) teams up with Detective Maggie Sawyer (Floriana Lima) to investigate the case while Kara searches for a recently escaped Mon-El (Chris Wood), who she fears may be the alien behind the assault.
