The upcoming Season 1 Episode 5 of "Supergirl" might seem a little out of place to most fans; because it is. In commemoration of the men and women who lost their lives in the Paris terror attacks, the CBS show decided to postpone the upcoming "How Does She Do It?" — an episode featuring a bomb attack on National City — by a week, and aired "Livewire" instead.
Last week's Thanksgiving-themed episode featured new villain Livewire (Brit Morgan), but more importantly showed Jimmy (Mehcad Brooks) going on a weekend getaway with Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum). Meanwhile, the upcoming episode will see him trying to decide if he actually wants to get back with his ex-fiancé; but sadly, we already know his decision.
Meanwhile, Kara (Melissa Benoist) will struggle to fulfil the responsibilities in her professional life as well as her duties as Supergirl. She has been tasked by her boss Cat (Calista Flockhart) to babysit her son on the same day she is required to save National City from being bombed.
In a sneak peek of the episode, we see her flying up as high she can, away from the ground and throwing the bomb into the atmosphere before it explodes. While we have no doubt in Supergirl's ability to save National City, it is Kara's ability to impress her boss that worries us.
Thankfully, she has her friends Winn (Jeremy Jordan) and Jimmy by her side; even if the latter may seem a little distracted by some relationship drama.
Watch out for Season 1 Episode 5 of "Supergirl" at 8 pm (EST) on Monday, 23 November. You can also live stream "How Does She Do It?" via CBS Live.
