‘Supergirl’ is careening toward its midseason finale– I know, already?  The last new episode for a while is entitled ‘Hostile Takeover’ and features a face-to-face confrontation between Kara and her evil Aunt Astra.  On the secret identity front, Kara’s boss Cat Grant is dealing with a potential threat to her status as a media mogul.

Here is the episode’s official synopsis:

Kara (Melissa Benoist) goes toe-to-toe with Astra when her aunt challenges Kara’s beliefs about her mother. Also, Cat (Calista Flockhart) is threatened with being removed as the CEO of CatCo after a hacker exposes her private and damaging emails, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, Dec. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Twelve new still photos from the episode have been released, which you can view below:

In addition to Melissa Benoist as Kara/Supergirl and Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, the show also stars Laura Benanti in the dual roles of Kara’s Kryptonian mother Alura Zor-El and as Astra, Alura’s sister/Kara’s aunt.  The show also stars Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow “Winn” Schott, Jenna Dewan Tatum as Lucy Lane, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw and Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord.  Recently added to the cast is Blake Jenner as Adam Foster a business rival of Cat’s and romantic interest for Kara, thus making him a rival in that regard to James and Winn.  In real life, Jenner is Benoist’s husband and former ‘Glee’ costar.

The show just introduced another DC Comics character Red Tornado and it was announced that a teenage Kal-El/Superman will factor into future episodes.  There are also rumors that the show will crossover with The CW’s hit ‘The Flash’.

What do you think of ‘Supergirl’ so far?  Are there any other DC characters that you think would work well in this reality?

The midseason finale airs December 14.
