Looks like the Girl of Steel will learn a stunning secret of epic proportions in an upcoming episode of Supergirl. The CW has released the synopsis for Episode 20 of the superhero series, which reveals that Krypton was not completely destroyed as everyone believed.

Titled “Dark Side of the Moon” and set to air on May 28, the upcoming high-flying installment will apparently see a shocked Kara (Melissa Benoist) discover that a part of Krypton has actually survived. This could set up a reunion between Kara and her parents, especially with her mother, Alura (Erica Durance).

The former Smallville actress was actually spotted filming for the Season 3 finale of Supergirl over a week ago, and the character looked very much alive (aka not a hologram) standing alongside Kara, Alex (Chyler Leigh), James/Guardian (Mehcad Brooks), Saturn Girl (Amy Jackson), and Mon-El (Chris Wood).

This could mean that thousands of Kandorians (Kandor was Krypton’s former capital which was miniaturized and then stolen by Brainiac, making Kryptonopolis the new capital — Kandor was also featured in the 1984 Supergirl movie) may be coming to live on Earth, much as they did during the 2008-09 Superman: New Krypton comic book arc penned by Geoff Johns, James Robinson, and Sterling Gates (who is now a writer on the show). The arc was an inter-title crossover with DC Comics’ Action Comics, Superman and Supergirl.

This was immediately followed by James Robinson and Greg Rucka’s 12-issue comic series Superman: World of New Krypton, which saw the Kryptonians and their city of Kandor being established on a new planet in the solar system, where they created New Krypton. In the comic’s run, the Man of Steel gets involved in their society while leaving Mon-El to take over for him in the meanwhile.

Whether or not the show uses Kandor or Kryptonopolis as the chunk of Krypton that survived remains to be seen. But this development could definitely help Supergirl, the DEO and the Legion of Super-Heroes in their battle against Reign (Odette Annable) and establish an intriguing new story arc for Season 4. What do you think?
