New ‘Smallville’ Season 10, Episode 3 Images: Supergirl Is Back!

We’re just a few days away from seeing the second episode of the final season of “Smallville,” but the network is already promoting the return of Superman’s cousin in Episode 3.

The good folks at The CW sent over a batch of new photos from the the aptly titled “Supergirl” episode, which features the return of actress Laura Vandervoort as Kara, the Kryptonian relative of Clark Kent (Tom Welling). With “dark forces” assembling to take down Clark and the rest of Earth’s superheroes, Supergirl is back with a message from Jor El that Clark might not want to hear.

Read on for some of the new images featuring Kara in a variety of outfits (including what looks to be a Clark Kent-inspired secret identity), as well as the full episode synopsis from The CW.

Official episode synopsis:

“Supergirl” (TV-14) (HDTV)

LAURA VANDERVOORT RETURNS AS DC COMICS’ CHARACTER SUPERGIRL — Clark (Tom Welling) is stunned when Kara (guest star Laura Vandervoort) returns to Earth and tells him Jor El sent her to stop the dark force that is coming because he doesn’t believe Clark can handle it. Meanwhile, Lois (Erica Durance) confronts Gordon Godfrey (guest star Michael Daingerfield), a shock jock radio DJ who has been crusading against heroes, after he threatens the Green Arrow (Justin Hartley). However, after Godfrey is possessed by the dark force, he takes Lois hostage and Clark and Kara have to come to her rescue. Mairzee Almas directed the episode written by Ann Cofell Saunders.

“Smallville” airs every Friday at 8 PM Eastern on The CW.
