Now that Kara has successfully made sure that her adoptive sister, Alex, remains among the living for the foreseeable future, she’s once again ready to embark on adventures that are a little more science fiction in nature. And should next week’s episode of Supergirl, “City of Lost Children,” live up to its trailer, we’ll get just that.
With only three episodes remaining this season, it looks as though Rhea is beginning the first phases of whatever her endgame may be. Whether General Zod factors into her plans remains to be seen, as we all know that Kryptonians and Daxamites aren’t exactly on the best of terms, but we could very well be looking at an “enemy of my enemy” scenario.
While it remains unclear as to what Mon-El’s mother has on her agenda, the trailer above gives me the impression that it has something to do with making children float in addition to having their eyes glow, but another glance at the official synopsis leads me to believe that the promo was cut in such a way that it blended two otherwise unrelated plot threads – we’ll just have to wait and see.
As for the aforementioned synopsis, you can check it out below:
When an alien attacks National City, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO learn the alien is a Phorian, an otherwise peaceful race with telekinetic powers. Guardian (Mehcad Brooks) gets a lead on the Phorian’s address but instead of finding the culprit, he finds a very scared boy named Marcus (guest star Lonnie Chavis). Marcus will only trust James so it is up to Guardian to stop the attacks on the city. Rhea’s (Teri Hatcher) plan escalates. Ben Bray directed the episode with story by Robert Rovner and teleplay by Gabriel Llanas & Anna Musky-Goldwyn.
Supergirl airs on Monday nights on The CW.
