Supergirl‘s Kara has a most unexpected homecoming — returning to an intact Krypton! — when the CBS series serves up its take on the classic Superman comic “For the Man Who Has Everything.”
As seen in the photos below for “For The Girl Who Has Everything” (airing Feb. 8), Kara’s friends must find a way to save her life when a parasitic alien attaches itself to her and traps her in a dream world where her family is alive and Krypton was never destroyed. The premise is akin to the aforementioned 1985 Alan Moore comic book tale, in which a plant gloms onto Superman and puts him in a coma, where he experiences a realistic dream based on his “heart’s desire.”
“There was something about that story that to me was even more resonant for [Kara],” Supergirl EP Andrew Kreisberg previously shared of the episode, “because for Superman it was a wish for something he never had. But for her, she wants something back that was taken from her.”
