In addition to having some thrilling adventures in the comics, Supergirl looks to kick off the second leg of its sophomore season in style. Thanks to the one and only Kevin Smith serving as the director for the midseason premiere, “Supergirl Lives,” we expect it to be nothing short of amazing.
Just days ago, we were treated to some cool new images from said episode, but this freshly released extended trailer makes the wait for the show’s return ever so hard to endure. Aside from Roulette, whom we already knew would be appearing, the footage confirms the return of Livewire. Not only that, but we can expect to see some Dominator action, and something tells me these aren’t the ones from the DC TV crossover, but rather those unique to Kara’s universe.
For more information, be sure to check out this detailed synopsis:
Kara (Melissa Benoist) is moved by the story of a missing woman named Izzy (guest star Harley Quinn Smith) and decides to investigate despite Snapper Carr’s (guest star Ian Gomez) order to leave it alone. Kara takes Mon-El (Chris Wood) with her to the last place Izzy was seen and the duo find themselves thrust through a portal to another planet, Slaver’s Moon, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves. The leader of the trafficking ring is none other than Roulette (guest star Dichen Lachman).
To make matters worse, Slaver’s Moon has a red sun, which means Kara and Mon-El are stripped of their powers and stuck on the planet with no way home. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Alex (Chyler Leigh) blames herself for Kara’s disappearance, fearing she’s become too focused on her new relationship with Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) and too complacent in watching out for her sister. Kevin Smith directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Eric Carrasco & Jess Kardos.
Supergirl returns with new episodes on Monday, January 23 on The CW.
