Season 4  "American Alien"  4x1

Aired 8 months ago - Oct 14, 2018

Diving back into reporting, Kara welcomes a new cub reporter to CatCo.

Supergirl is called into action when remnants of the anti-alien terrorist organization Cadmus try to assassinate pro-alien leaders, but their endgame may be more sinister than she expected.
