Mxy Returns In For ‘Supergirl’ 100th Episode Preview

by Erik Amaya

Next week is the 100th episode of Supergirl! And to celebrate, Thomas Lennon takes over the role of Mr. Mxyzptlk to offer Kara (Melissa Benoist) the chance to see what would’ve happened had she told Lena (Katie McGrath) the truth from the get go. The retrospective also means special cameos from Mon-El (Chris Wood), Samantha Arias (Odette Annable), and even Ben Lockwood (Sam Witwer). And if this preview is any indication, we’ll also see Kara’s old hairstyle and costume.

And it seems all the worry about Kara and William (Staz Nair) getting together was unfounded. Even if she is using her worry of lying to him as an excuse, Kara decision to literally run from him suggests a deeper reason why she doesn’t want a relationship. That could be interesting material to examine … provided Mxy doesn’t convince her to go on a date with William. Then again, considering Mxy serves chaos, Kara’s attempt to date William could be his real objective.

Meanwhile, you gotta feel for Brainy (Jesse Rath). Isolated with Lex (Jon Cryer) and taking on all the emotional strain will not be great for him. Also, we just hate to see him so sad. This storyline will probably run the rest of the season, but we cannot wait to see it end.

Supergirl airs Sundays on The CW.
