Mon-El (Chris Wood) is finally returning to Supergirl in next week’s episode of the high-flying superhero series, and he’s bringing Saturn Girl (Amy Jackson) along for the ride. The CW has released an extended trailer as well as a batch of new pics giving us our first look at the telepathic member of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
Next week’s episode, titled “Wake Up,” was helmed by Chad Lowe, who also guest-starred as a cult leader earlier this season. The episode sees Winn (Jeremy Jordan) and the DEO discover the alien ship stuck underwater beneath National City. Kara (Melissa Benoist) is sent to investigate and comes face to face with Mon-El, who’s not only back but can now mysteriously breathe Earth’s lead-laden atmosphere. Benoist recently teased that Kara and Mon-El’s reunion won’t be the one we expect, and we have a hint of that in the trailer below. Oh, and he’s also brought some friends with him from the 31st century.
While we know Brainiac 5 (Jesse Rath) will make his debut in Episode 10, titled “Legion of Super-Heroes,” Saturn Girl (aka Imra Ardeen) will arrive next Monday to help the Girl of Steel in her fight with baddie-in-the-making Reign (Odette Annable) with the help of her psychic powers. Saturn Girl first appeared in the pages of 1958’s Adventure Comics #247 and was a founding member of the Legion of Super-Heroes, which also included Lightning Lad and Cosmic Boy. Since Brainiac 5 and Saturn Girl will appear on the show, does that mean they're the other Legionnaires in the pods?
Check out the extended trailer and the Supergirl pics below, and let us know if you guys are looking forward to “Wake Up” next Monday.
