Following the return of Supergirl to the airwaves last night, The CW has released a promo for next week’s all-new episode, which sees the girl of steel going up against a new type of villain.
Titled “Alex” and set to air May 1, the episode is described as follows:
“Alex (Chyler Leigh) is kidnapped and the kidnapper threatens to kill her unless Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) releases a notorious criminal from prison. Supergirl and Maggie (Floriana Lima) have always had different approaches to apprehending criminals but this time they must work together to save Alex. Meanwhile, Rhea (guest star Teri Hatcher) has an interesting proposal for Lena (Katie McGrath).”
Rob Greenlea directed the episode which was written by Eric Carrasco & Greg Baldwin.
