Supergirl Season 3: J'onn And Kara's Road Trip To Mars

There is a new episode of Supergirl tonight, and the CW has released three new clips for the episode called Far From The Tree. The title comes from the fact that we meet two different people's fathers.

First up is Maggie (Floriana Lima), who is picking up her father at the bus, as there is a party he's shown up for. Her father, Oscar Rodas (Carlos Bernard), appears to have been a police detective in the past, as well. But there is tension between the two, and her mother didn't make the trip.


The other two clips focus on J'onn J'onzz (David Harewood) as he and Kara (Melissa Benoist) head off to Mars after a summons by M'gann M'orzz (Sharon Leal). They have to use his ship to get there and we learn that it, too, can shapeshift.

The third clip below shows us why they were called. M'gann and the resistance shut down another White Martian camp and find a living Green Martian — but it's not just any Green Martian. It's M'yrnn J'onzz, J'onn's father. In a great piece of legacy casting, M'yrnn is being played by Carl Lumbly, who voiced the Martian Manhunter in the Justice League animated series. He also had his turn as a live-action superhero in the 1994 television series M.A.N.T.I.S.

Supergirl airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
