Synopsis for Episode 220

Whew! It is almost time! Can you imagine five uninterrupted weeks back to back with new episodes of Supergirl? Well that is exactly what we are going to get! We can't wait! To help along your excitement, we have the official synopsis for episode 220, recently revealed to be titled "City of Lost Children". Check out the synopsis below:

THIS IS US LONNIE CHAVIS GUEST STARS – When an alien attacks National City, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO learn the alien is a Phorian, an otherwise peaceful race with telekinetic powers. Guardian (Mehcad Brooks) gets a lead on the Phorian’s address but instead of finding the culprit, he finds a very scared boy named Marcus (guest star Lonnie Chavis). Marcus will only trust James so it is up to Guardian to stop the attacks on the city. Rhea’s (Teri Hatcher) plan escalates.

Sounds like a pretty big one for James and much like a game of chess, it sounds like we'll see Rhea start to move her pieces toward a final strike! Let us know what you think in the comments below and in the forum! Also keep us advertisement free and visit the support page!

I'm trying to figure out how wanting a show called Supergirl to be more about Supergirl is being shortsighted... I don't get that at all . It has been pretty much a constant murmur among fans about the lack of Supergirl this season being super as a complaint. We've had excuses of she is filming the crossover and then filming across over again . I don't know if that's the reason or not but it seems to me that if they had truly centered this entire season around Kara and Supergirl rather than spending so much time on relationships to the point of 1 Relationship, Maggie and Alex being in a constant cycle of hurt reconciliation happy hurt reconciliation happy hurt . And I think the evolution of Monel becoming a hero didn't need all of the relationship seems between him and Kara in order for that to have worked . Seems to me there would've been a far better climate among the fans had they done less on the subplots and stuck to the main plot this season . And that main plot is Supergirl fighting the villain as well as being a kick butt reporter on the side while becoming more confident as Kara and more kick butt as Supergirl. You keep that the center and low-key on the subplots I think the great majority of the fans would be much happier . And this is coming from someone that actually has not minded the Kara Monel relationship . But I will take Supergirl fighting the bad guy over anything else any day of the week .

Well said. I agree 100 percent!

Actually it does matter what the show's title is and it's why I watch it for her. If the title were to be different such as Young Justice that would be a different story.

I would like to see the show centered back on supergirl (which, IMO, is not being short sighted). Not interested in what the other shows do. I am in agreement that SuperGirl will need help in doing her job - that is why you have the DEO (with Alex and J'onn), Winn, James and other characters that help her....but it should be on an as needed basis. The show in season 1 focused on that. In the episode "stronger together" Kara herself even stated to James "Part of being your own man is knowing when to accept help." So the complaint is not that she has helpers. She had plenty of helpers in season 1 and I loved that season. The complaint, IMO, is that season 2 has not been on SuperGirl/Kara, the character and the focus on her powers and adventures. The focus and theme of Season 2 was relationships, okay -now they have been built - let's now put the focus back on SuperGirl. If the other characters in the show want to be center focused - then they need to go get a show that is named after them and a fan based following that want to see them. In SuperGirl we finally had a leading female character. The show was unique in this fact and I for one was happy to see that. Unique means being different from what is already out there (i.e flash, arrow) - there is nothing wrong with that.



Many THUMBS UP on this. Pretty much my thoughts exactly. Not short sighted and so what if its not like the other shows, thats considered original.

Surely it matters, isn't that a key contributing factor to watching a show?, if you have no interest in the title character you wouldn't generally watch (at least that's the case from my perspective).

"but this one's focuses one the lead character building relationships around her"

S1 did that nicely but the thing I've found in S2 is a cut back on Kara's relationships and interactions with Winn, Alex, J'onn and James and instead we've ventured into Alex/Maggie, Winn/Lyra, J'onn/M'gann all of which have little or nothing to do with Kara and now you have Queen Rhea arriving on the scene which has more do with Mon-El than Kara. So the feeling is that Kara/Supergirl has just become part of the cast instead of who the story's about with the other character's there to support her.

"overused 'lonesome cowboy' superhero cliche ...You've got all the male-centric superhero shows doing that to death already."

Which shows are they?, I watch The Flash and Arrow and they have big teams of heroes now, Arrow has like 5 on his team and you hardly see him going to fight alone any more.

The Bionic Woman and Wonder Woman shows back in the day predominately focused on just them and they worked out OK, why can't Supergirl be focused on Supergirl?.

I hope I'm wrong, and I hope that Kara is front and center on the last 5 episodes, but IMHO.....if your star is not front and center in the last quarter of your season there are consequences to that...

The fact that we have one episode entitled "Alex" and one that according to the synopsis is very James oriented, that is a problem, and then another bringing Superman back...they did a pretty good job of keeping it Kara centered in the 1st 2 episodes, but it could have gone either way.

I also have a problem with James having the kids trust and not Kara....but oh well, it is what it is.

My hope is that I will be TOTALLY SURPRISED... :-)

And I agree Van, there is something broken with this season.....and IMO, it is that there are far too many storylines going at one time. For next season I hope that we get back to Kara...as in Supergirl, as in Kara as Supergirl, and all of the emo stuff is lightened to a great extent.


Towards the season finale, Supergirl should've gotten plenty of focus. Here's what
it looks like:

Episode 18 - Kara's journalism and the James/ Winn/ Lyra triangle
Episode 19 - Kara and Maggie working together and Alex getting kidnapped
Episode 20 - James as Guardian at a crossroads
Episode 21 - Return of Cat Grant
Episode 22 - Season finale with Superman, Cat Grant, and General Zod

I have to agree - it is time we center the show back on the character of SuperGirl. That has been my complaint all along.


...and it's a completely short-sighted one at best. The show is an ensemble drama, not a solo act. Doesn't matter what the title is; The other CW superhero shows are ensemble vehicles as well, but this one's focuses one the lead character building relationships around her, not plumbing the depths of the overused 'lonesome cowboy' superhero cliche all over again. You've got all the male-centric superhero shows doing that to death already. This one doesn't need to do that, too. Also, there's always been a better gender viewer balance on THIS show than the other CW hero shows; people seem to keep forgetting that fact...even The Flash doesn't have this show's unique audience ratio.

Definitely agree. When s2 was announced, Cadmus was one of the main 'selling points', if you will. They haven't really followed up on any of the initial selling points; James has barely been onscreen, much less gotten to be Guardian, M'gann is gone, and Rhea has replaced Cadmus. It's disappointing.


The show runners have been saying all along that there would be TWO 'big bads' for Supergirl this season. This wasn't some unexpected change in plans....unlike last season, when the show had to come up with a different way to end Season One when they got an extension on the originally planned 13 episodes to fill...and Laura Benanti had to leave for Broadway.

I have to agree - it is time we center the show back on the character of SuperGirl. That has been my complaint all along. There will be an episode based on Alex, there will now be an episode based on Guardian (James) and there have been entirely too many based on MonEl. Even in the episode "Distant Sun" the writers had a chance to make this episode about SuperGirl fighting bounty hunters who wanted to kill her. Instead it turned out to be another MonEl episode. Yes - I too would like to see the show go back to being based on SuperGirl. It is her show and it is suppose to be her story. In my opinion, the writers need to get back on track and make the show about the title character.

Also:

One thing about the development of James coming out as Guardian. I looked at the episode "Stronger Together." Which was season one, episode 2. 28 minutes into the episode, James says to Kara: "One day everyone knew my name and not because of anything I did, not really, but because I was friends with somebody who was making a difference." So as early as this episode in season 1 James displayed the wanting to be more than he was and wanting to make a difference. So, in my opinion, the Guardian character really should not be a surprise.
