Next week on Supergirl, it is Kara versus an AI named Indigo who is taking over everything.

As reported a few weeks ago, Smallville‘s Laura Vandervoort (who also played Kara/Supergirl) will be guest-starring in the episode “Solitude”. The episode will air next Monday (2/29), and promises to be big.

How big?

Like Kara has to go to the Fortress of Solitude level big. Although, again, one does have to wonder where Superman is because it is his base. Not that I’m saying Kara isn’t capable, but I find that aspect of the show to be kind of frustrating. (I just really want to see him once on the show. Just once! I will be happy with that.)

To get you suitably excited for these pictures, here’s the synopsis for the episode.

Kara travels to Superman’s Fortress of Solitude in hopes of learning how to defeat Indigo (Laura Vandervoort), a dangerous being who can transport via the Internet and who has a connection to Kara’s past. Also, James’s relationship with Lucy reaches a crossroads.

A connection to Kara’s past? I wonder what that could mean.

In the comics, Indigo was a Brainiac made android. In some continuities (Superman: The Animated Series comes to mind), Brainiac was made on Krypton. Maybe that’s where the connection comes in?

Or Indigo was sentenced to Fort Rozz by Alura, Kara’s mother.

Newly released pictures from Supergirl shows Indigo in all her glory.


We also get a look at the Fortress of Solitude, which is just as icy and solitude as advertised.

Indigo does also kind of look like Mystique, but with braid things. I will take it though. Just as long as it is never another Red Tornado. That was a really bad one.

Supergirl airs on Mondays at 8pm EST on CBS.
