'Smallville' Season 10, Episode 3 Preview: 'Supergirl'

SmallvilleSupergirl is returning to "Smallville" this week, but from what we can gather via previously released "Smallville" images, episode descriptions, and cryptic predictions from the show's producers, her return is simply the herald of bad things coming up for Clark Kent and the rest of the Earth's heroes.

The CW has released a new teaser for the upcoming third episode of the season on YouTube, and it includes an ever-so-brief peek at Darkseid, the villain of the series' final, season-long story arc. Everyone who watched the recent Season 10 premiere caught their first glimpse of the villain in this short segment, and it's nice to get another look at the debut of one of Superman's most powerful enemies.

"Supergirl" airs Friday evening at 8 PM EDT on The CW.
