Even with some more Season 6 road left to travel, fans of The CW's Supergirl can already look forward to some familiar faces returning for the series finale. Last week, they learned that Mehcad Brooks will be returning as James Olsen aka the original Guardian, joining the previously-announced Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schott) and Chris Wood (Mon-El) and more, we're sure. And speaking of Olsens, James' sister Kelly (Azie Tesfai) takes center stage- teaming with Kara (Melissa Benoist) on an important investigation. Meanwhile, a certain stowaway imp needs Nia's (Nicole Maines) help but probably doesn't pick the best way of going about asking for it- as you're about to see in the following preview images, overview, and promo for "Dream Weaver":
Supergirl Season 6 Episode 9 "Dream Weaver": SUPERGIRL AND KELLY TEAM UP – Kelly (Azie Tesfai) meets Joey (guest star Aiden Stoxx), a young orphaned alien boy, who is acting out in foster care because he fears there is something wrong with his brother Orlando (guest star Jhaleil Swaby), who is incarcerated. Kelly asks Kara (Melissa Benoist) to help her investigate and they stumble upon abuse at the prison. Meanwhile, Nyxly (Peta Sergeant) crashes one of Nia's (Nicole Maines) dreams and asks her for help. The episode was directed by Shannon Kohli and written by Karen E. Maser & Emilio Ortega Aldrich

Peta Sergeant (Snowfall) has joined the cast as Nyxly, a quirky and kind 5th Dimensional Imp wrongly imprisoned in the Phantom Zone and driven by a tragic backstory.
