‘Supergirl’ Finally Says Superman’s Name in First ‘Stronger Together’ Clips
Only providing a solitary episode to critics, CBS’ Supergirl drew understandable flack for its tendency to reference Kara’s cousin Superman in pronoun, strangely refusing to say the name out loud. Following a stellar debut, and with new episodes on the way, that ban seems to have listed in the first clips from our next Supergirl outing, “Stronger Together.”
CBS provided three new clips from the latest Supergirl installment, in which multiple characters are heard to finally reference the name “Superman” aloud, while DC’s Hellgrammite (Justice Leak) also makes a menacing appearance.
So reads the official “Stronger Together” synopsis:
When Kara’s attempts to help National City don’t go according to plan, she must put aside the doubts that she – and the city’s media – has about her abilities in order to capture an escapee from the Kryptonian prison, Fort Rozz. Also, Cat pressures James to use his connection to Superman to get her an interview with Supergirl, when SUPERGIRL moves to its regular time period, Monday, Nov. 2 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT)
In addition, upcoming Supergirl episodes will feature Glenn Morshower and Jenna Dewan-Tatum as Sam and Lucy Lane, Brit Morgan as Livewire, Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord, Chris Browning as Reactron, Iddo Goldberg as Red Tornado, Chris Vance as the Kryptonian Non, and Henry Czerny as an elder Toyman.
You can check out the clips above and trailers below, but will subsequent Supergirl live up to its pilot? Will we ever actually see “the big guy,” now that we can officially say his name?
