CBS has today released the first details about the upcoming eighth episode of Supergirl, and it points to some more surprising twists and turns down the line for Kara Danvers. The description also confirms that Astra will be making a return, a character we haven’t actually seen since the second episode when Supergirl clashed with her for the first time.
Here’s the official synopsis for the episode, which is titled “Hostile Takeover”:
Kara goes toe-to-toe with Astra when her aunt challenges Kara’s beliefs about her mother. Also, Cat is threatened with being removed as the CEO of CatCo after a hacker exposes her private and damaging emails, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, Dec. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Perhaps the most intriguing thing here is the mention of Cat Grant’s “damaging” emails. What could she be hiding that’s so bad? Supergirl has so far made it clear that she’s ruthless and willing to do anything to beat The Daily Planet, so chances are that whatever we learn here could have major ramifications for the series moving forward.
With Supergirl recently given a full season order by CBS, things are looking good for the latest DC Comics series, and this instalment should be another must-watch episode.
