Its arguably the number one thing Kelly messages us about in the comments section, and we can't blame her. Sneak peeks are like a good ice cream on a sunny day. Well we were able to hunt down a first sneak peek at Monday's all new Supergirl episode and it gives a little context as to what we can expect! Check it out below and if/as more become available, we'll add them here!
Short and sweet but this one wasn't from traditional US based sources so forgive the subtitles.

February 6th's new episode of Supergirl has a title and a synopsis and this one is a doosy! Supergirl, M'Gann, and J'onn are going to be going up against a White Martian attack! As we've seen from season one, the White Martians are possibly one of the most deadly races in the Supergirl universe! The episode is titled, The Martian Chronicles and is described as:
WHITE MARTIANS ATTACK THE DEO — Armek (guest star Terrell Tilford), a White Martian, descends on National City intent on taking M’gann (guest star Sharon Leal) back to Mars to face her punishment as a traitor. Hank (David Harewood) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) determine the best way to keep M’gann safe is to bring her to the DEO. However, when it is revealed that Armek shape-shifted into M’gann and is now loose in the building, the team realize he could be disguised as any one of them. David McWhirter directed the episode written by Gabriel Llanas & Anna Musky-Goldwyn (#211). Original airdate 2/6/2017.
Taking a moment to reflect on this, its easy to take a lot for granted. Can you believe that we are going to get an episode with a White Martian attack! That could be a whole movie in itself yet its just one episode of many we get on The CW! Incredible!

Glee fans are going to get an extra dose of Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin signing in a two part crossover event! We have known for a while now that the second Supergirl/Flash crossover would be a musical this season but more details are emerging from TVLine.com. The two night event will take place March 20th and 21st both on Supergirl and The Flash. Much like the Heroes vs Aliens crossover, the majority of the signing and crossover action will happen on the second night via The Flash. As for who is singing, there are some incredible talents confirmed so far, but more may be on the way!
- Melissa Benoist (Obviously) | Supergirl
- Grant Gustin (Also Obviously) | Flash
- Jesse L. Martin | Joe West
- Victor Garber | Dr. Stein
- Carlos Valdes | Cisco Ramon
- Jeremy Jordan (WE CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS ONE) | Winn Schott
- John Barrowman | Malcolm Merlyn
That is an incredible line up, but already we are curious about the story. What event could bring a Legend, a Legionnaire of Doom, and Winn Schott together? Does Winn get to go to Earth One? David Harewood and Chris Wood (Martian Manhunter and Mon-El respectively) are also going to appear in the crossover but not sing. Does this mean Supergirl is bringing her crew to Earth One? What will Cisco think of J'onn? WOW we are so excited! The episode is appropriately titled, Duets.
This calls for speculation hats for sure! Let us know what you think is going to happen in the comments below and in the forum! Also, visit the support page and keep Supergirl.tv your advertisement free source for Supergirl News!

Supergirl Lives, the title of our next episode coming in 5 days, is directed by Kevin Smith as we all know. Well, he made an impact on the Supergirl powers that be and has been asked to return to direct another episode this season according to comicbook.com! Specifically, episode 17. Smith has been quoted saying:
I fell in love with everybody up there, so it was easy to say 'yeah,'. It takes something special to make you put aside your own s*** when you're creative. When you have the ability to make the stories you want to make, it's fun to watch other people's stories, it's just way more fun to make your own. So whenever you put your s*** aside, it has to be for something worthwhile. Working on Supergirl is like a month of your life, but I'd give it up in a heartbeat because the last experience I had was so rewarding and I was so happy with what we did. I like all the people up there, and I believe in the show in a big, bad way. It's incredibly warm. It's just well-made entertainment, and it's got something to it. It's a little nourishing, it's not just fast food. There's always some heart to it.
This sounds like another banner episode to us! Smith's work on The Flash has been heralded as a hallmark of the show and come Monday we'll see what he can do with Supergirl!

The arrival of the more famous cousin in Supergirl does nothing to detract from the show's lead, who continues to deliver strength, action, and relatability.
2017 is looking to be another banner year for Supergirl but this 2016 season 2 accolade can't be overlooked! Congrats to the cast and crew! Also to put this into perspective, Supergirl beat out Stranger Things, Luke Cage and even Game of Thrones!!!!! You can see the full list here.
