Supergirl apparently needs a week off to recuperate after racing around with The Flash last week. CBS will instead air back-to-back repeats of The Big Bang Theory at 8 p.m. before Supergirl returns for its final two episodes of the season starting on Monday, April 11.
In the first episode back, “Myriad,” Kara must find a way to free her friends when Non (Chris Vance) and Indigo (Laura Vandervoort) use mind control to turn National City’s citizens into their own army. Myriad is the alien technology that puts the city under Non’s control.
Before Supergirl returns, find out where we left Kara and her friends last week.
Supergirl And The Flash Team Up to Battle Livewire and Silver Banshee
Supergirl saw its ratings spike last week with the “Worlds Finest” crossover event that brought The CW star Grant Gustin as Barry Allen aka The Flash to National City. The two DC superheroes battled Livewire (Brit Morgan) and Silver Banshee (Italia Ricci), who partnered up in hopes of taking down Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) and Kara Danvers aka Supergirl (Melissa Benoist).
Barry Gives Kara Some Relationship Advice
In the closing moments of last week’s episode, Kara took the advice of her new friend Barry and decided to let James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) know how she felt about him. Standing together in her kitchen, she fumbled to find her words then made it clear by kissing him. Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explained her motivation to TVLine.
Barry’s advice about when to go slowly and when to move fast really resonated with her. She finally realized, too, they’ve had so many fits and starts throughout the course of the year, and so much of it was because one of them didn’t stop talking and just act.
Unfortunately at the exact moment of the kiss, Non (Chris Vance) and Indigo (Laura Vandervoort) had taken control of the minds of James and every other human citizen of National City. They were last all seen walking in unison down the street while Kara could do nothing but stare out her window at the frightening sight.
J’onn J’onzz and Alex Go to Rescue Jeremiah Danvers
Too busy battling bad girls and helping The Flash return to his Earth, the crossover episode touched little on J’onn J’onzz (David Harewood) and Kara’s sister Alex’s (Chyler Leigh) mission to find their father, Dr. Jeremiah Danvers, who J’onn believes is still alive at the military installation, Project Cadmus.
The previous episode (“Manhunter”) revealed Jeremiah saved J’onn’s life when the real Hank Henshaw tried to kill the Martian. The alien then took the identity of Hank when he died falling off a cliff.
Supergirl returns on Monday, April 11 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
