Supergirl becomes the third Arrowverse series to reach its 100th episode next week, with – as is TV tradition – the milestone instalment of season 5 being marked with a very special storyline that’ll cast a nostalgic eye on the Girl of Steel’s journey so far. Specifically, three former stars of the show will be making a comeback for the hour.
Titled “It’s a Super Life,” you probably don’t need me to tell you that the episode will be a take-off on It’s a Wonderful Life, with Mr. Mxyzptlk returning to National City – with a new face, as Thomas Lennon is replacing season 2’s Peter Gadiot – to give Kara an offer she can’t refuse. And that offer is to go back in time and see if she can fix the mistakes of her past, including telling Lena Luthor her secret before Lex did and ruined their friendship.
Along with Mxy and Jeremy Jordan’s Winn Schott, who’s remaining with the series for a few episodes, “It’s a Super Life” will also feature the return of Chris Wood’s Mon-El, Odette Annable’s Samantha Arias/Reign and Sam Witwer’s Ben Lockwood/Agent Liberty. Wood’s return was also teased by his presence in the promo photos for the episode, which showcase Kara and the rest of the Super-Friends in the Watchtower.
