From The CW and creator Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”) comes the DC Comics TV series Supergirl, featuring Melissa Benoist in the title role. Also starring Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, Mehcad Brooks and David Harewood, the series returned for season 2 on October 10, 2016.
At 12 years old, Kara Zor-El escapes doom on planet Krypton to find protection on Earth with the Danver family, where she grows up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learns to hide the extraordinary powers she shares with her cousin, Superman. Now an adult living in National City and working for media mogul Cat Grant, Kara finds her days of keeping her abilities a secret are over when super-secret agency head Hank Henshaw enlists her to help protect the city’s citizens from threats. Finally coming into her own, Kara must juggle her new responsibilities with her very human relationships.
Season 2, Episode 6 ‘Changing’ Synopsis: “The Guardian debuts to lend a hand after a parasite alien drains Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) of her power. Mon-El (Chris Wood) considers a less than desirable new career which then leads him to contemplate his motives. Alex (Chyler Leigh) struggles with a new reality.”
Check out the below promo to get a good look at Parasite, the new villain from the Superverse making his way onto Supergirl. Much like last week’s Legends of Tomorrow, the CW is injecting a good dose of horror into their DC Comics shows lately.
