Boy, what has Supergirl been without Cat Grant / Calista Flockhart? The “Queen of all Media” has had a noticeable absence since her departure in Season 2 Episode 2, and while James has apparently done a great job at running CatCo (who knows, though, we haven’t seen much of him this season either…) it’s time for the Queen to take her throne back.
According to TV Line, Calista Flockhart (Cat Grant) will be back for the final two episodes of Season 2. Unfortunately, her return to Supergirl is probably just going to be a quick visit back to National City to check on her company and make sure her prodigy is doing an excellent job as a reporter. The disgrace she will feel once finding out Kara went off and blogged her own story though. Yikes.
We can dream of a world where Calista Flockhart puts her past behind her and relocates to Vancouver to shoot Supergirl for the foreseeable future, but that dream world will just cause us pain once reality sets in. Cat is probably just going to come back to fix a scandal or mess that James (or Kara) creates at CatCo, so her return will probably just be a brief one in the midst of an attack by Cadmus or Queen Rhea of Daxam.
Maybe Cat Grant will set Kara straight about this messy relationship with Mon-El, and make her kick his obnoxious ass out the door back to Daxam where he belongs. Kara deserves better, and someone needs to see how annoying and awful Mon-El is, and how much he drags Kara down since no one else in the Supergirl universe is going to stand up and speak the truth.
The most powerful person in National City is returning, and while we hope it’s for more than two episodes, just having her back is a treat.
