Alex Wants a Break From the Real World in Supergirl Episode 5.16 Promo

The CW has released a brand new promo for the upcoming episode of Supergirl. In the latest episode of the series, Dreamer had to step up and defend her community from hate. But part of the episode dealt also with the implications of the intersection of technology and society as Alex went for a trip into virtual National City.

It seems that the former director of the D.E.O enjoyed a little bit too much the virtual reality experience. In just a few days, she will wear the contact lenses made by Obsidian Platinum to break from her daily routine once again. Kara and the rest of the team will have to do what it takes to save her adoptive sister from losing herself in the virtual reality.
