From the looks of these first images of Supergirl‘s Season 3 premiere, “Girl of Steel,” the show is coming back hot! Not only do we already get an introduction to new villain Reign (Odette Annabel) who is a “Worldkiller” and thus an enemy to Supergirl, but there is a new threat to National City that Kara is already embroiled against. For her part, Kara is also looking to deal with the emotional fallout from having to send Mon-El out to space, and a few of the images suggest that we might be getting a dream sequence of some kind.
According to the episode’s official synopsis, there will also be some relationship drama between Alex and Maggie, because of course there is! (Well maybe not drama, but another hesitation on Alex’s part). But mostly I’m interested to see how Reign is set up to start this season, and also how Kara and Lena’s friendship develops.
I’ve been a little worried about this season, and hope it doesn’t follow in Arrow and The Flash‘s footsteps of getting too dark and not making some major story mistakes. You can do it, Kara! Break the curse!
Supergirl returns Monday, October 9th on The CW. Below is the official synopsis of the premiere episode, as well as the rest of “Girl of Steel’s” new images and a new trailer.
DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF YOU — Kara (Melissa Benoist) deals with the loss of Mon-El (Chris Wood) by focusing all her energy on being Supergirl and the mysterious new threat against National City. Alex (Chyler Leigh) confesses a secret to Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) about their impending nuptials. A citizen of National City has a mysterious connection to Kara, and Lena (Katie McGrath) makes a bold move. Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Robert Rovner and Caitlin Parrish.
