‘Supergirl’ season 2 clip reveals a red sun trapping Kara as Alex’s ‘gay storyline’ revealed

On Monday, Supergirl is back with her first installment of the new year!

The episode, which is directed by Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy), will see Kara (Melissa Benoist) & Mon-El travel to a distant planet where they’ll find themselves at the mercy of Roulette (Dichen Lachman) and to make matters worse, they’ll be powerless underneath the power of a red sun.

The CW has released a new clip from the episode featuring the Girl of Steel and Mon-El (Chris Wood) getting left behind on Slaver’s Moon and quickly coming to terms with their new predicament. Check out the clip below:

“What you’re seeing on Supergirl is this budding relationship between Kara and Mon-El that’s starting to feel [like The Flash‘s Barry and Iris],” Smith explained to TV Line, promoting the new episode. “The writers are going to make us fall in love with these guys, and I hope they really nourish that story, because I think they’re wonderful together. There’s something very exciting and star-crossed there. … And the actors! Whenever Melissa [Benoist] and Chris [Wood] film a scene, it’s Charm City.”

By the way, this is where the CW adds their obligatory gay storyline, more HERE

“Supergirl Lives” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, V) (HDTV)

KEVIN SMITH DIRECTS; ROULETTE RETURNS — Kara (Melissa Benoist) is moved by the story of a missing woman named Izzy (guest star Harley Quinn Smith) and decides to investigate despite Snapper Carr’s (guest star Ian Gomez) order to leave it alone. Kara takes Mon-El (Chris Wood) with her to the last place Izzy was seen and the duo find themselves thrust through a portal to another planet, Slaver’s Moon, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves. The leader of the trafficking ring is none other than Roulette (guest star Dichen Lachman). To make matters worse, Slaver’s Moon has a red sun, which means Kara and Mon-El are stripped of their powers and stuck on the planet with no way home. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Alex (Chyler Leigh) blames herself for Kara’s disappearance, fearing she’s become too focused on her new relationship with Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) and too complacent in watching out for her sister. Kevin Smith directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Eric Carrasco & Jess Kardos (#209). Original airdate 1/23/2017.

The hour-long drama centers on Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
