Supergirl's 'Homecoming' Promo Promises Plenty of Action and Family Drama

When Supergirl made the jump from CBS to the CW, it wasn't quite clear how her story would fit in with the rest of the CW superhero universe, namely the Flash and Green Arrow. For starters, there was the whole notion of the multi-verse to get sorted out. Now things are becoming a bit clearer, especially with all of the TV schedules becoming aligned enough that story arcs can now be sorted out to better accommodate all of the heroes at once.

So, with that to look forward to, our attention can now return to another reunion of sorts, as shown in the new teaser for Supergirl's next episode, "Homecoming". In it, Kara and her sister Alex finally get to spend some quality time with their father, Jeremiah, who is being played by none other than a former Superman himself: Dean Cain. It seems hunky-dory at first, but the promo also foreshadows that Jeremiah might not be exactly who he seems.



in an added bit of fun meta casting, Cain's one-time onscreen Lois Lane, Teri Hactcher, will be appearing in a future episode of the show playing a villain and may even share a scene with him. More details on that will come out soon, but at the very least it's great to see a show and IP paying so much respect to its own history and having fun with it to boot.

Tonight's episode of Supergirl airs at 8 PM on the CW.
