J’onn Gets Backup In A Scene From Tonight’s Supergirl

by Erik Amaya

 

Despite the fact Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Maggie’s wedding seems more and more unlikely, they’re still gung-ho to get married. So much so that Kara (Melissa Benoist) is throwing a shower for her sister. But as this clip from tonight’s episode of Supergirl reveals, even that has a bad omen handing over it. To be specific, Kara will miss it because J’onn (David Harewood) needs backup on Mars. He’s received a telepathic from M’gann about trouble on his homeworld. Seeing that it’s almost undoubtedly a trap concocted by the White Martians, Kara decided to go with him.

And who’s going to say no to Supergirl when she offers to help?

You have to love these sorts of family scenes. And yes, Kara, Alex and J’onn are a family. The show’s definitely earned that dynamic even if the characters only invoke it during times of crisis. Or when Alex asked J’onn to walk her down the aisle. Man, the Sanvers break-up is going to be really, really sad.

Supergirl airs Mondays on The CW.
