The CW has released a huge bunch of photos from the Kevin (Mallrats, Clerks) Smith-directed episode of Supergirl, called “Supergirl Lives”, which feature the return of Dichen Lachman as Roulette. There are also a few shots of Smith at work – how many times do promo shots for a TV series include the director? Rather cheekily, in the photo with Smith using his thumb to point at Melissa Benoist he’s a wearing a Mysterio T-shirt… and Mysterio is a Marvel supervillain.
“Supergirl Lives” will air in the UK on Sky One on 24 January. Click on all images for larger versions.
In “Supergirl Lives,” 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.
