After Kara left Smallville to seek out the lost city of Kandor (one of Krypton’s largest cities) in the eighth season of Smallville, fans have been anxiously awaiting her return. Following battles with some of Clark’s most formidable foes - Doomsday and General Zod - his elusive Kryptonian cousin finally makes her way to Metropolis.
In season nine, Zod revealed that Kandor was, in fact, destroyed and that his very existence comes from the fact that he was scanned and gave a blood sample before its destruction, only to be resurrected by Jor-El’s Orb on Earth. Fortunately, this Kandor is not the same iteration of the fantastical city that Kara is searching for. Kandor was eventually rebuilt from its initial destruction and rumors coming from The Phantom Zone spoke of the great city of Krypton surviving the planet’s decimation.
Of course, the past is the past and with Smallvile in its final season, it’s time to live in the now. The season 10 premiere gave fans a glimpse of one of DC’s most powerful characters, Darkseid. With Glorious Godfrey already shaking things up on the radio, it was only a matter of time before other members of Darkseid’s Elite begin to appear. Thankfully, it appears that this is that episode.
Many fans have been wondering whether or not Kara will return in full Supergirl glory. While it appears that there are some elements missing from her iconic costume, it’s pretty close. As you can see from the header image, Laura Vandervoort easily pulls off the Supergirl look and the costume department once again creates another amazing superhero costume.
Since “Supergirl” does not air until this Friday, take a look at some clips, pics, spoilers and interviews from this week’s episode.

Clark is stunned when Kara returns to Earth and tells him Jor-El sent her to stop the dark force that is coming because he doesn’t believe Clark can handle it. Meanwhile, Lois confronts Gordon Godfrey, a shock jock radio who has been crusading against heroes, after he threatens the Green Arrow. However, after Godfrey is possessed by the dark force, he takes Lois hostage and Clark and Kara have to come to her rescue.

Even though I mentioned it previously, I still can't believe how well they're able to pull off the Supergirl costume. If anything, this has me more excited to see Clark finally don his infamous red and blue wardrobe.
