Supergirl swoops in on The CW again with a new episode that promises to be a great one. Mr. Mxyzptlk comes to National City to annoy Kara, taking a break from troubling her cousin in Metropolis. “Mr. & Mrs. Mxyptlk” starts on The CW at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, February 20. Read on for a preview of the episode.
In case you need a refresher, at the end of “Luthors,” a romantic moment between Mon-El and Kara was broken up by the sudden appearance of Mr. Mxyptlk, played by Peter Gadiot. The imp from the Fifth Dimension wants Kara to marry him, but Kara – as you can imagine – doesn’t want anything to do with him.
If the series follows the comics, the only way for Kara to get rid of Mxyptlk is to make him say his name backwards. He then has to stop toying with her and go back home. Mxyptlk also has a habit of showing people what they like to see. Part of the new episode will include Mon-El seeing what his life was like on Daxam.
Meanwhile, Alex and Maggie celebrate their first Valentine’s Day together. Alex has always struggled to leave her sister behind, but she’s finally embracing a life of her own.
