The trailer for the next episode of Supergirl, In Plain Sight, opens with J’onn J’onzz / Martian Manhunter (David Harewood) telling someone off-camera his brother, Malefic J’onzz (Phil LaMarr), now has the power to place thoughts in our head. How far will Malefic go to exact his revenge on his brother for erasing him from the Martian collective consciousness?
The scene transitions to Malefic taking Kelly Olsen’s (Azie Tesfai) shape. Is that James Olsen / The Guardian (Mehcad Brooks) in the scene or is it J’onn? From the camera angle, it’s not easy determining which character it is that’s looking at Malefic. When two people jog past Supergirl, they stare at her. Could Malefic be putting thoughts in their heads about Supergirl?
In a scene most likely at the DEO, Supergirl is conversing on a cell phone with someone. Querl Dox / Brainiac-5 (Jesse Rath) is standing nearby. Supergirl says, “Who is this guy?” Could she be talking about British journalist William Day (Staz Nair)? With what transpires in the previous episode, we know Kara doesn’t trust Day. She is therefore likely to investigate Day’s activities to determine whether he’s behaving criminally.
There is part of me that thinks Day only took the job at CatCo to get close to Andrea Rojas / Acrata (Julie Gonzalo) so that he can investigate her and what she’s doing at the online magazine.
“Don’t take this personally,” a woman tells Kara before using her powers to send the journalist flying backwards out of the open veranda doorway. Is that Agent Igle (Patricia Isaac) using powers on Kara or is it someone we have yet to meet?
As some fires off a weapon, the scene transitions to Supergirl jumping in front of Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) and Dox. It looks like Alex is telling J’onn he put them in jeopardy. What, if it is J’onn that puts everyone in jeopardy, did the Martian Manhunter do?
Supergirl is televised Sundays at 9 p.m. EST/PST on The CW.
