Supergirl: Episode 2.09 Preview – More on Roulette’s return; latest on Maggie, Alex

Later this month, the second season of “Supergirl” is going to be returning to The CW with new episodes, and one of the most interesting things about “Supergirl Lives” right away will be the return of Roulette, someone who really does a good job of dipping her hands into all sorts of cookie jars. Really, she does a whole lot more in various crime rings than you’d think any person really has the time for.

This episode is also notable for a few other reasons: You’re going to have some more complications between Alex and Maggie just because Maggie’s old habits are hard to break, and you’re also going to have a chance to see Kevin Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith make an appearance in the very episode in which he is directing. Take a look at the synopsis below, which gives you a good idea as to precisely where this story is going:

“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.”

When it comes to the interplanetary travel and some of the supernatural stuff that could happen there, this may be one of the most out-there episodes of “Supergirl” we’ve seen. Let’s just hope that somewhere along the way, it also does a good job of being entertaining.
