“Falling ” for Supergirl – This Week’s Episode.

0

We’re all falling for Supergirl, if we haven’t fallen already for the charm and sincerity of CBS’ hit series.  It only makes it so much harder for fans when the wait between episodes is a week or more.  It’s been two weeks since Kara (Melissa Benoist) fought Indigo (Laura Vandervoort) and Alex (Chyler Leigh) confessed that she killed Astra (Laura Benanti).  This week Supergirl returns in a big way with not only a new episode but The Danvers Sisters will be making one of their first comic-con appearances during this weekend’s C2E2.  Before they get to Chicago though, The Danvers Sisters do have another adventure in National City.  Take an extended look at the Supergirl episode “Falling” below.

      KARA TURNS ON HER FRIENDS AND THE CITIZENS OF NATIONAL CITY AFTER BEING EXPOSED TO RED KRYPTONITE MAKES HER MALICIOUS AND DANGEROUS, ON “SUPERGIRL,” MONDAY, MARCH 14.

The Hosts of CBS Daytime’s “The Talk” Guest Star.

The episode “Falling” of Supergirl looks great as we see Kara contend with red kryptonite which, as most of us know, brings out the dark side of kryptonians.  CW’s Smallville explored this in great length over the course of its long running ten seasons.  Red kryptonite was always a fun device used to allow Tom Welling to be the bad boy as opposed to the more good for the sake of good Clark Kent.  Based on the clip we saw from “Falling”, it looks as if Melissa Benoist will have just as much fun (if not more) in playing Kara as a tougher and meaner Supergirl.

We’re also two episodes away from “World’s Finest”, the major crossover between CW’s The Flash and CBS’ Supergirl.  Stay tuned for that as fans of both shows and the DC Universe will not want to miss that as it airs the Monday after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice releases.

Supergirl airs 8 PM, Monday nights on CBS.  Check your local listings.
