Supergirl: Black Mercy Takes Over Kara Zor-El

Supergirl 13After the big cliffhanger last week on Supergirl, tonight’s episode will pick up right where we left off as Kara Zor-El gets taken over by the parasitic alien known as Black Mercy. The 13th episode “For The Girl Who Has Everything” is an adaptation from the famous Superman storyline “For The Man Who Has Everything” and in the version that the Girl of Steel will be going through. Kara will be trapped in a dream world where she is back on Krypton with her family.

The episode will also feature a young Kal-El in a world where Krypton didn’t get blown up and will be played by Daniel DiMaggo and this will mark the first time that Kara is seen next to Superman on the show! Well, at least a teenage version of him, but at least it’s something. CBS has released a promo as well as a preview clip featuring the return of Non and Astra, played by Chris Vance and Laura Benanti.
