The Girl of Steel will be going up against a unique foe in Supergirl's upcoming third season - but it sounds like they won't start out at odds.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Odette Annable previewed the dynamic between her character, Samantha Arias/Reign, and Kara Danvers/Supergirl. As she explained, the duo will have more in common than viewers would initially expect, seeing as both are dealing with their true identities.
"They can absolutely relate to each other on that, on very polar opposite playing fields, but they have so much in common — not just because they're from Krypton and from the same place, probably came in on a pod, but absolutely. Their storylines are very parallel — one will go one way and one will, unfortunately, go the other."
With Samantha transforming into Reign over the course of the season, viewers can expect to see her dynamic with Kara to change pretty dramatically. But when it comes to which persona will interact with Kara more, Annable was pretty mum about the details.
"I have been working with Kara," Annable revealed. "And we will be working together very closely. Whether that's Sam or Reign, you'll have to find out."
Supergirl fans won't have to wait too long to find out, as season three premieres Monday, October 9th, at 8/7c, on The CW.
