Kelly Embraces Her Role as Guardian in Supergirl Episode 6.12 Promo

The big moment for Azie Tesfai’s Kelly Olsen has finally arrived, as the latest promo for Supergirl teases. In the next installment, National City will get a new Guardian. Following the outbreak of a sticky situation, Kelly makes up her mind and takes up the mantle and shield of her older brother, James. The show already hinted that she would have a much more prominent function following the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover where she used the shield to save some civilians from falling debris. It looks like the producers welcomed the fans’ requests and gave the iconic weapon a look much more similar to the comics than before as it features a shiny, golden color. And the same goes for the superhero’s costume, now more accurate than in the first seasons.

David Ramsey directed the episode written by J. Holtham and Azie Tesfai. The official synopsis for “Blind Spots” reads:

“Kelly (Azie Tesfai) is horrified when the Ormfell building implodes, injuring many in the community, including Joey (guest star Aiden Stoxx). However, her horror quickly turns to frustration when she realizes that the hospital is overwhelmed, people are getting sicker, and no one is coming to help – including Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) who is busy fighting Nyxly (Peta Sergeant). Knowing that she can make a difference, Kelly embraces her power and fully steps into her role as Guardian. Joined by Supergirl, Alex (Chyler Leigh), Diggle (guest star David Ramsey) and team, Guardian leads the way to restoring justice to the fallen community.”

Supergirl episode 6.12 will debut on The CW on Sept. 21.
