The CW has released a bunch of cool photos from the Kevin Smith-directed mid-season premiere of Supergirl, "Supergirl Lives." A couple weeks ago we saw the first promo spot for the episode, and it looks like it's going to be great. I love that Smith is involved with directing episodes of these DC series.
In the upcoming episode, Supergirl finds herself going up against Roulette and brings Mon-El along for the ride. The new photos feature these characters and also include a few behind-the-scenes shots of Smith and Melissa Benoist working on the episode.
KEVIN SMITH DIRECTS; ROULETTE RETURNS — Kara (Melissa Benoist) is moved by the story of a missing woman named Izzy (guest star Harley Quinn Smith) and decides to investigate despite Snapper Carr’s (guest star Ian Gomez) order to leave it alone. Kara takes Mon-El (Chris Wood) with her to the last place Izzy was seen and the duo find themselves thrust through a portal to another planet, Slaver’s Moon, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves. The leader of the trafficking ring is none other than Roulette (guest star Dichen Lachman).
To make matters worse, Slaver’s Moon has a red sun, which means Kara and Mon-El are stripped of their powers and stuck on the planet with no way home. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Alex (Chyler Leigh) blames herself for Kara’s disappearance, fearing she’s become too focused on her new relationship with Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) and too complacent in watching out for her sister.
"Supergirl Lives" is set to air on January 23rd.
