Supergirl Preview ‘Fight or Flight’
In the next episode of Supergirl, Kara does the exclusive interview with Cat Grant, much to the displeasure of Alex and Henshaw. Cat runs the story on Supergirl and reveals that she and Superman are related, which spells danger for Kara. Now, she is faced with one of Superman’s enemies, Reactron.
It looks like Kara and James are growing closer. We know she has feelings for him, but after 2 and how she stood up for him, I think he realizes that he has feelings for her. We will also see the introduction of Lucy Lane this week, and we know from a season preview that James and Lucy used to date.
In casting news, Supergirl just added Emma Caulfield (known as Anya from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as Cameron Chase. In the comics, Chase is an FBI and later DEO agent, who is ruthless in her quest to subdue all extraterrestrial threats. It will be interesting to see how the writers deal with this new character. She could serve as opposition to Alex and Henshaw. Originally, Chase’s father was brutally murdered, and this leads to her tough exterior. For this reason, she probably hates on aliens and will not take too kindly to the DEO working with one.
At the end of last week’s episode, there was a shot of Henshaw with glowing red eyes. I did some research and he is actually a major villain in the Superman universe. He is a cyborg, goes by the name of Cyborg (not the good, Justice League one), and Cyborg Superman. If this is the case, I wonder why he is helping Supergirl train (though he isn’t too enthusiastic about it). Could he eventually use Supergirl to get to Superman? It’s a possibility.
“Fight or Flight” airs November 19th on CBS.
