Seeing as though Livewire—shock jock-turned-supervillain—is making her third appearance on Supergirl in this Monday's episode, you could consider her the Woman of Steel's arch-nemesis. Kara sure does.
And as you'll see in the "We Can Be Heroes" sneak peek above, Kara no longer thinks having a nemesis is as "fun" as her cousin Superman makes it appear to be. "I hate having a nemesis," she says to James Olsen, cutting him off before he can tell her he's Guardian. "Clark always makes it look so much fun. Like, you have a deadly pen pal you see once a year. But having a nemesis is stressful."
After Livewire (guest star Brit Morgan) seemingly breaks out of prison, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) is intent on recapturing her. After training Mon-El (Chris Wood), Supergirl takes him with her when she sees Livewire attack the NCPD but things go awry when Mon-El puts Supergirl before the citizens of National City. Meanwhile, James (Mehcad Brooks) decides to come clean with Kara, and M’Gann (guest star Sharon Leal) has a psychic attack and collapses into a coma.
Rebecca Johnson directed the episode written by Caitlin Parrish & Katie Rose Rogers.
“We Can Be Heroes” episode will air Monday, January 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
