With the 100th episode of Supergirl just around the corner, TV Line has confirmed that several key players from the past will be making their way back to National City to bring in the major milestone with the Girl of Steel (Melissa Benoist).
According to their sources, Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schott), Chris Wood (Mon-El), Odette Annable (Samantha Arias/Reign) and Sam Witwer (Ben Lockwood/Agent Liberty) will all reprise their roles from previous seasons in the show’s 100th hour, which will air on Sunday, February 23 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
Along with the guest star confirmations, the trade has also shared a first look at the return of Chris Wood as Mon-El, who is seen reuniting with his friends Kara, Winn, Alex (Chyler Leigh), Kelly Olsen (Azie Tesfai) and J’onn J’onzz (David Harewood) and seemingly informing them of something of the utmost importance.
While there are surely more surprises in store, the plot description reveals that the episode will be an Elseworlds tale of sorts as Mister Mxyzptlk (Thomas Lennon) returns with an enticing offer for Kara – what if she could go back in time and tell Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) about her secret before Lex (Jon Cryer) did, would things turn out differently for their friendship?
The episode will then take fans back through key moments from the series, giving Kara the opportunity to see whether her biggest life moments turn out any differently – for better or worse – than they did.
