Viewers hoping to see Kara’s (Melissa Benoist) next "Supergirl" adventure Monday are going to be disappointed. There will not be a new episode of the CBS drama, but it isn’t going on a long hiatus. It has been preempted in place of the Grammys.
The 58th annual Grammy Awards, music’s biggest night, will air Sunday at 8 p.m. on CBS during the normal “Supergirl” timeslot. But the Kryptonian hero isn’t the only one getting moved. New episodes of “Scorpion” and “NCIS: Los Angeles” are also being postponed. “Supergirl” Season 1, episode 14, titled “Truth, Justice and the American Way,” will instead air Monday, Feb. 22.
[SPOILER ALERT: Details about upcoming episodes of “Supergirl” Season 1 are below!]
When Kara returns, she’ll have to deal with Astra’s (Laura Benanti) demise. The hero won’t accept her aunt’s death as she would any other villain’s. “The death of Astra weighs heavy on Kara in the upcoming episodes,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly. “Kara believes in the inherent goodness of people. She thinks that deep down her aunt was more misguided than evil, and if she had more time, she could have brought her back into the light.”
However, she’ll also be distracted by new villains. She’ll battle Master Jailer (Jeff Branson), who is helping Fort Rozz prisoners, and she’ll clash with James (Mehcad Brooks) over the DEO’s practices.
She’ll get a little relief at her work life when Cat (Calista Flockhart) hires another assistant. However, the new girl, Siobhan Smythe (Italia Ricci), might not make Kara’s life any easier — especially since her alter ego is Silver Banshee.
If it sounds like a lot for Supergirl to handle, don’t worry, she’ll get some help soon. The Flash (Grant Gustin) will stop by National City in the March 28 installment and lend a heroic hand.
“Supergirl” returns Monday, Feb. 22, on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
