Last week on Supergirl, Kara (Melissa Benoist) learned a lesson and taught a lesson. Her sister Alex (Chyler Leigh) taught her that she needs to learn to fight if she was going to fight people stronger than she was. She had to be smarter about it. She demonstrated this using Kryptonite. Cat (Calista Flockhart) threatened James’s (Mehcad Brooks) job if he did not get her an exclusive interview with Supergirl. Cat dispenses some good advice to Kara. And Kara, in turn, helps James figure out that he can be his own man, and that they were all “stronger together.” Winn (Jeremy Jordan) and James find out that the other knows. Kara’s Aunt Astra (Laura Benanti) tries to get her niece to join her, but is prepared to destroy her if necessary of she gets in her way. Alex gives Kara the gift of her own “Fortress of Solitude.” And Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) has evil red eyes.

Last week on Supergirl, we got a faster-than-a-speeding-bullet backstory, which included Superman’s older cousin Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), sent to Earth to protect him. On that journey, she got lost in The Phantom Zone. Now the younger cousin, HE helps her. She is adopted into a family including parents (Dean Cain and Helen Slater), and older sister Alex (Chyler Leigh). Kara works as an assistant to Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) who runs CatCo, a media giant. James Olsen (Mechad Brooks) is sent by Superman to watch out for Kara, and she outs herself to her friend, Winn (Jeremy Jordan), who makes her costume. Kara decides to give in to her legacy, after saving a doomed plane that her sister was on, and liking that heroic feeling. She discovers her sister is part of a covert government team, the DEO, who is tracking the criminals that escaped from The Phantom Zone along with Kara. The criminals all want revenge on their jailor’s daughter.

Supergirl
Episode 1.1 “Pilot”
Directed by Glen Winter
Written by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Ali Adler
Starring Melissa Benoist, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, Mehcad Brooks, David Harewood, Jeremy Jordan, Helen Slater, Dean Cain, Peter Facinelli, Chris Vance
CBS
Air date: Monday, October 26, 2015, 8:30pm ET

Supergirl, the new and highly anticipated show from Arrow creators Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti, and Ali Adler, flies in tonight on CBS. The pilot episode quickly tells the origin story of Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), cousin of you-know-who. She’s the older cousin, tasked with watching over Kal-El, but got caught up in The Phantom Zone. By the time her ship crashed to Earth, she reverted to younger cousin. There’s a lot of “Him” floating around. They never really say his name, and we only catch a silhouetted glimpse of “Him.” Much like her now older cousin, she kept her powers hidden. Only her sister Alex (Chyler Leigh), and her parents (Super-Geek alert! Dean Cain and Helen Slater) know (we think). The rest of the pilot is about her “coming out.”

So how is it? Spoilers ahead!
