Titled “American Alien”, this episode is scheduled to air on The CW in the USA on Sunday, October 14 at 8.00pm ET/PT.
HOPE VS. FEAR
Diving back into reporting, Kara (Melissa Benoist) welcomes a new cub reporter to CatCo. Meanwhile, James (Mehcad Brooks) and Lena (Katie McGrath) argue about James’ impending indictment for acting as the vigilante Guardian, while Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Brainy (Jesse Rath) struggle to get in sync at the DEO. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) is called into action when remnants of the anti-alien terrorist organization Cadmus try to assassinate pro-alien leaders, but their endgame turns out to be much more sinister than she expected. J’onn (David Harewood) relishes his peaceful new life, but an outing with an old friend causes him concern.
Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Robert Rovner & Jessica Queller and teleplay by Gabriel Llanas & Aadrita Mukerji.
I thought that this episode was ok. Could’ve been a bit better, but I feel that it wasn’t bad. At least it gave an explanation on where Superman was during the coarse of events in this episode. It might also explain his absence in the upcoming episodes since he’s off world prior to the crossover event.
Maybe his off world presence is setting up the crossover event?
Could be. I guess it’s a matter of waiting until December’s crossover to find out.
