Watch Supergirl Save Lynda Carter In Brand New Clip
Kara Danvers has already saved a wide variety of people during her tenure as Supergirl, ranging from her boss to her friends to the entire population of National City. Soon, Kara will get the chance to save her highest-profile person yet: the President of the United States. Former Wonder Woman Lynda Carter signed on to Supergirl Season 2 to play President Olivia Marsdin, and it looks like she'll be getting into trouble pretty quickly when she makes her debut. Luckily, Supergirl will be on time with an epic save. Check it out!
It looks like President Marsdin will be lucky to have as many bodyguards as she does when Air Force One touches down in National City. One less, and she might have been fried by whatever bad guy is targeting her entourage. Kara unfortunately doesn't have the time to both find the culprit and protect the president, but at least she has some clues to go on.
The bad guy of the episode either posses very dangerous powers or a very dangerous weapon, has a blatant disregard for the lives of innocents, and very bad aim. The female president in her snazzy coat obviously stands out from her crew of suited bodyguards. If the villain had better aim, those bodyguards might not have died. They might have had to look into a new line of work if they were unable to stop the assassination of the leader of the free world, but at least they wouldn't have been zapped to death.
Luckily, it seems that the president is not going to be deterred from her cause by the attack. Her meeting with Martian Manhunter at the D.E.O. is proof that she is determined to continue with her plan to welcome alien life to Earth. Despite his own status as an alien on Earth, J'onn J'onzz is evidently against blanket amnesty for all aliens.
Judging by the first season of Supergirl, we can safely say that both the president and Martian Manhunter have a point in their stances on alien life on Earth. Supergirl has faced a lot of murderous aliens during her time as a superhero, but she is an alien herself. Both Supergirl and Martian Manhunter are examples of aliens who do deserve amnesty on Earth. Besides, most of the aliens in Season 1 were escapees from a Kryptonian prison. Of course prison escapees were mostly going to be bad guys. Is it really fair to block all aliens just because some were bad? Or were the bad ones so bad that it's not worth the risk to humans? Martian Manhunter and the president may discover that they need to compromise their viewpoints.
We don't have to wait much longer to see Lynda Carter in action as the President of the United States on Supergirl. She makes her debut in the third episode of Season 2, which is set to air on Monday, October 24 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
