Supergirl season 4 will premier on Sunday, October 14 and The CW has just released the press release and trailer with the synopsis of the first episode called “American Alien”.
Diving back into reporting, Kara welcomes a new cub reporter to CatCo. Meanwhile, James and Lena argue about James’ impending indictment for acting as the vigilante Guardian, while Alex and Brainy struggle to get in sync at DEO. Supergirl is called into action when remnants of the anti-alien terrorist organization Cadmus try to assassinate pro alien leaders but their endgame turns out to be much more sinister than she expected. J’onn relishes his peaceful new life, but an outing with an old friend causes him concern.
So we see that Cadmus is back. And we can’t help but wonder if that means that we will see Kara and Alex dad, Jeremiah, come back. We still think Jeremiah needs to clear up why he works for Cadmus. And while we are talking Cadmus, whatever happened to the real Hank Henshaw?
Jimmy Olsen faces indictment for acting as the vigilante called Guardian. Anything that happens to him in a court of law will set a precedent for other Vigilantes. In an alien-hostile environment it could prove very difficult to act as a vigilante. At the same time it will be a very interesting dynamic throughout the season.
We hope to see that American Alien will set out the start of the plotlines for the entire season. It usually takes up to three episodes to see what direction the writers will take the show.
