October 17, 2016: Tonight’s “Supergirl” Episode – “The Last Children of Krypton”

Tonight’s new episode of “Supergirl” is titled “The Last Children of Krypton”, and will air on The CW at 8.00pm ET/PT.

The CW issued a promotional image for the episode, showing Superman carrying Supergirl, an image which is an unmistakable reference to the cover of “Crisis on Infinite Earths #7”.



CADMUS attacks National City with a kryptonite powered villain who ends up seriously hurting Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) blames Hank (David Harewood) because the kryptonite was stolen from the DEO. Meanwhile, Kara’s first day at her new job doesn’t go as planned after she meets her new boss, Snapper Carr (guest star Ian Gomez).

This episode was written by Robert Rovner & Caitlin Parrish, and directed by Glen Winter.

More Supergirl and more Superman, bring. it. on!

Great cover homage. Even though I hated Kara getting killed off when I was a kid still gotta love that George Perez art. Can’t help but notice the way the cape attachment is set up on Tyler’s Superman costume kind of looks like the shoulder design of comicbook Kara’s 80’s costume. Still kinda wish they’d fix it so it overlaps the sides of the collar and line’s up the bottom of it.

Her death was just as iconic as Barry Allen’s Flash. And only one issue apart. Those were moving and heart wrenching moments in comic book history. Now that you mention the Cape similarities you’re damn right. Good observation.
