It looks like Winn (Jeremy Jordan) will be helping in the investigation of the Kryptonian pod that crash-landed in National City at the end of the Season 1 finale of “Supergirl.”
As announced at the San Diego Comic-Con last July, Winn is going to leave CatCo Worldwide Media to work for the DEO in Season 2. And as seen in the new featurette released by the CW, it seems that Winn’s first assignment as an employee of the top secret government agency has something to do with the crash of the said Kryptonian pod.
“Sir, I would request that Winn help with the investigation,” Alex (Chyler Leigh) tells Hank (David Harewood) at the DEO base. “We need someone to analyze the pod’s telemetry, and Winn does read Kryptonian.”
Winn confirms what Alex has just said, explaining how he became proficient in the Kryptonian language. “I got bored, I thought I’d pick up a new language,” he tells Hank. “Space talk!”
Despite Winn’s incredible skill set, Hank still needs some convincing that Winn would be an asset to the DEO. “You want to prove your worth Mr. Schott? Find out something my team of highly trained alien experts can’t,” Hank tells Winn, who confidently accepts the challenge.
Since Winn is now going to spend most of his time at the DEO, executive producer Sarah Schechter said at Comic-Con that fans can expect more fun scenes between the him and Hank.
“Winn becomes more involved with the DEO which means we get more scenes of David Harewood and Jeremy Jordan together which is to me endlessly entertaining,” Schechter told /Film last July. “Nobody annoys Hank Henshaw more than Winn Schott.”
Unlike his character, Harewood is pleased by Winn’s move to the DEO. “I think it’s going to be wonderful having his sense of humor and his wit around the DEO, and having that rub up against J’onn [Hank’s alter ego], who doesn’t quite have very much of a sense of humor.”
