CBS has released the first official description and image for the upcoming sixth episode of Supergirl. This one is set to air on the same day as Gotham‘s midseason finale, which may just prove to be pretty tough competition in the ratings.
However, Supergirl has so far forged a really strong identity of its own, and while there are a few kinks which definitely need to be worked out over the coming weeks and months, it’s so far proving to be a great addition to Warner Bros.’ slate of DC Comics projects on the small screen (it feels so close to Arrow and The Flash that it’s hard not get mad that The CW decided against picking it up).
Here’s the description of the episode – titled “Red Faced” – which is set to put Supergirl against Red Tornado:
Personal and professional stress get the better of Kara when she goes too far during a training exercise against Red Tornado, a military cyborg commissioned by Lucy Lane’s father, General Sam Lane. Also, Cat’s tough exterior is shaken by a visit from her judgmental mother, Katherine, and Alex enlists Winn to look into her father’s mysterious death, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, Nov. 30 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Guest stars include Iddo Goldberg as Red Tornado and its creator, Dr. Morrow; Joan Juliet Buck as Katherine Grant, Cat’s mother; and Glenn Morshower as General Sam Lane, Lucy’s father.
Red Girl was widely ridiculed when he was first revealed, and, well, he doesn’t look that much better here in all honesty. Still, the episode itself sounds great, and it should be pretty good fun seeing Kara taking him down on Supergirl.
