Supergirl Photos: Roulette's Return Leads to a Kara/Mon-El Rescue Mission

Roulette certainly has been busy since we last saw her.

Formerly the organizer of an underground fight club for metahumans, Dichen Lachman’s character returns in Supergirl‘s Jan. 23 episode (The CW, 8/7c) as the leader of a trafficking ring on a distant planet known as Slaver’s Moon. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the planet boasts a red sun, leaving Kara and Mon-El at Roulette’s mercy, as you’ll see in a new batch of photos released by the network on Tuesday.

Alex is seen coming to her sister’s rescue, but it’s possible that her victory will come at a cost: Per the episode’s official description, Alex “blames herself for Kara’s disappearance, fearing she’s become too focused on her new relationship with Maggie and too complacent in watching out for her sister.” (Can’t anyone just be happy anymore?!)

And just as executive producer Ali Adler teased to TVLine earlier this month, it looks like Winn is starting to learn “what it means to be a hero,” getting a little taste of the action on Slaver’s Moon for himself.

(Additional fun facts: Not only is this episode directed by the Kevin Smith, but his daughter — Harley Quinn Smith — also plays Izzy, one of the kidnapping victims.)

    Is there a plan for Mon-El to become Ultraman, as in the silver/bronze age comics?

    Has this show completely forgotten about james? He never gets mentioned in the promotion of the show. He’s like the new laurel after season one of arrow

  6. JC1 says:

    Looks great! Looking forward to it.

  7. Dave Walker says:

    The fight club was for aliens, not metahumans.

  8. Joey Padron says:

    While i think that Kara and Mon El has chemistry, i really wish they actually would’ve had Kara remain single this season, i mean the reason she gave James for ending things with him was because she wanted to focus on herself, and i wish the showrunners would have stayed true to that, if not then what was the reason they ended Kara/James after building them up for an entire season.

      Maybe Kara dumps Mon-El in the first episode of season 3, reflects on why she has such a terrible time with men, and realizes that Lena Luthor is the one for her..
