New Supergirl Featurette Takes Us Inside A “City Of Lost Children”

Although Supergirl will most certainly have her hands full over the course of this season’s remaining three episodes having to deal with the likes of Rhea and General Zod, James Olsen is set to get some needed exposure tonight in “City of Lost Children.”

You see, with Calista Flockhart no longer being a series regular, CatCo hasn’t enjoyed the prominence it had during the first season as of late. Sure, we do see it here and there, but you have to admit that much more time has been spent over at the DEO and, as such, James has needed something to keep him occupied even though he’s been put in charge of the media empire. Thus, having him take to the streets as Guardian has filled that void.

Still, he comes and goes, more so feeling like he’s embarking on his own quest as opposed to the cohesion we see from Teams Flash and Arrow. Hopefully tonight’s offering turns the tide as the featurette embedded at the top hints that it’ll be rather heavy on Guardian. Furthermore, it supports the official synopsis in saying that a Phorian is behind the psychic attacks, whereas the episode’s trailer was cut to make it look like the fault of Rhea.

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.
