After last episode's take on It's a Wonderful Life turned out to be so much more, The CW's Supergirl comes storming back Sunday night after some well -deserved time off – and after news that series star Melissa Benoist was expecting. With tonight's "The Bodyguard", Lex (Jon Cryer) needs Kara to be a… Superguard???
Yes, you read that right…
But from what you're about to see in the following preview, he's right about Andrea (Julie Gonzalo) needing more than a little protection – because more often than not, people with a "manifesto" usually aren't the most "normal" people in the world… even if they might have a point:
"Supergirl" season 5, episode 14 "The Bodyguard": LENA MOVES FORWARD WITH NON NOCERE – Lex (guest star Jon Cryer) tasks Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) with protecting Andrea (Julie Gonzalo) from an anti-tech extremist, but his nefarious purpose goes beyond merely keeping Andrea alive. Meanwhile, Lena (Katie McGrath) moves forward with Non Nocere, with Lex's help. Gregory Smith directed the episode with story by Lindsay Sturman and teleplay by Emilio Ortega Aldrich & Chandler Smidt
In season five, Supergirl faces threats, both new and ancient. National City becomes enthralled with addictive virtual reality technologies created by CatCo's charming-but-secretive new owner, Andrea Rojas (Julie Gonzalo), which enable people to bury their heads in the proverbial sand. As Kara uses the power of the press to try to expose this danger, she must contend with challenges put up by rival reporter William Dey (Staz Nair), renegade Martian Malefic J'onzz (Phil LaMarr), a shadowy organization called Leviathan, and the shocking return of Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) who, in addition to his plot for world domination, seeks to claim the soul of Supergirl's best friend — and his sister — Lena. With humanity choosing to lose itself in technology, can Supergirl save the world yet again?
