Warning: Spoilers for last night’s episode of The CW's Supergirl as well as next week's installment!
The Martian Manhunter is blasting off into space and returning to his home turf of Mars when the new Supergirl hits next week, but he’s not going alone: The Girl of Steel will be tagging along for the ride, as you can see in the new trailer below.
Next week’s installment, titled “Far From the Tree,” will see the return of M'gann M'orzz (Sharon Leal), who appeared to J’onn (David Harewood) in a psychic vision in the final minutes of last night’s episode, urging him to return to Mars immediately. Not only is Miss Martian back, but viewers will be introduced to two new characters in J’onn’s dad M’yrnn J’onzz (Carl Lumbly, who voiced the Martian Manhunter on the animated Justice League series) and Maggie’s (Floriana Lima) estranged father, Oscar Rodas, played by 24’s Carlos Bernard.
While he’s long believed to be the last Green Martian, J’onn will be proven wrong when he is reunited with his paternal, a pacifist religious leader on the Red Planet who “pushes his son in unexpected ways.” Also back next week is Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Alex's (Chyler Leigh) mom Eliza Danvers (Helen Slater), who'll throw a wedding shower for Alex and Maggie, which, in turn, will lead to Maggie reaching out to her dad. That should make for some dramatic viewing since Maggie's dad kicked his teenage daughter out of the house when he found out she was gay.
Check out the trailer, and don't forget to tune in for Supergirl Monday nights on The CW.
