It looks like Mon-El (Chris Wood) is going to be very possessive of Kara (Melissa Benoist) in Season 2, episode 13 of “Supergirl.”

With Mr. Mxyzptlk’s (Peter Gadiot) declaration of love for the Kryptonian at the end of last Monday’s episode, Wood teased that Mon-El is going to up his game in next week’s installment to show the magical menace that he’s the one who deserves Kara’s heart.

“When he ends up fighting Mr. Mxyzptlk, he definitely has all of [those feelings for Kara] fueling his blows,” Wood told TVLine. “Every punch is filled with ‘Don’t touch her! She’s mine!’”

“Mon-El hates this guy,” Wood said of what his character’s think of Mr. Mxyzptlk. “He hates that he’s ruined this moment where they’re finally going to connect, and he hates even more that this guy wants Kara to marry him and is trying to manipulate the situation into making her almost feel like he has no choice.”

According to the synopsis for the episode, Mon-El has encountered beings like Mr. Mxyzptlk on Daxam before. And while he knows how dangerous they can be, Kara thinks that Mr. Mxyzptlk is harmless. Kara’s impression of the imp, however, quickly changes when he starts wreaking havoc in National City.

In the comics, Mr. Mxyzptlk is a manipulative imp from the 5th Dimension who loves to annoy Superman. Although not actually evil and doesn’t inflict any long-term damage to the Man of Steel, Mr. Mxyzptlk relentlessly pesters and proves that he’s smarter than the Kryptonian. Mr. Mxyzptlk can only be made to return to the 5th Dimension when he’s tricked into saying his own name backwards. It remains to be seen, however, whether Kara and Mon-El will do the same trick on the CW series to get rid of DC’s most notorious prankster.

“Supergirl’ Season 2, episode 13, titled “Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk,” airs on Monday, Feb. 20 at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
