The CW has released the first official images from tomorrow night’s episode of Supergirl, and they tease a major attack on the D.E.O. as the evil White Martians come calling for Miss Martian. A love interest of sorts for Martian Manhunter in the series, he’s clearly going to do all he can to protect her despite the fact that she too is part of the race that wiped out his family.
Unlike the rest of the White Martians, she’s not a murderous monster and actually objected to them slaying J’onn’s people. With last week’s Supergirl leaving her comatose, the D.E.O. has been invaded by the shift-shaping aliens as they attempt to pit the heroes against each other by sewing the seeds of mistrust between them.
For more on what to expect from this episode of Supergirl, here’s the synopsis for “The Martian Chronicles.”
Armek (guest star Terrell Tilford), a White Martian, descends on National City intent on taking M’gann (guest star Sharon Leal) back to Mars to face her punishment as a traitor. Hank (David Harewood) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) determine the best way to keep M’gann safe is to bring her to the DEO. However, when it is revealed that Armek shape-shifted into M’gann and is now loose in the building, the team realize he could be disguised as any one of them.
This definitely sounds like a fun outing, and it should be interesting to see the action take place in an enclosed environment. Season 2 of Supergirl has so far been a big improvement on the first, but it hasn’t quite nailed the overarching storyline format the same way as the likes of Arrow and The Flash. The subplot with Miss Martian has been undeniably compelling thus far, though, and we’re excited to see how it continues to play out when the show returns to The CW tomorrow night.
