Cat Grant ogles Clark Kent before Kara meets her new boss, Snapper Carr, in a new scene from Monday's episode of "Supergirl," "The Last Children of Krypton."
"Ohhh, watching Clark Kent walk away is like transcendental meditation," Calista Flockhart's Cat observes, much to the discomfort of Melissa Benoist's Kara. "All of your worries, all of your concerns in life, they just ... fall away."
However, Clark's back end takes a back seat to more pressing matters: the introduction of Ian Gomez ("Felicity," "Cougar Town") as Snapper Carr, the gruff head of the investigative team at CatCo Magazine.
He's a significant departure from the DC Comics character of the same name, who debuted in 1960 as hip-talking teenage sidekick of the Justice League of America. The character, whose nickname refers to his tendency to snap his fingers when excited or making a point, has proved surprisingly enduring, and he even received superpowers for a time in the 1988-1989 crossover "Invasion!" (which provides inspiration for The CW's big Arrowverse crossover).
Whether "Supergirl's" "shabby, not-so-chic" Snapper Carr received his nickname from snapping his fingers, or by snapping at his co-workers, remains to be seen.
CADMUS attacks National City with a kryptonite-powered villain who ends up seriously hurting Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) blames Hank (David Harewood) because the kryptonite was stolen from the DEO. Meanwhile, Kara’s first day at her new job doesn’t go as planned after she meets her new boss, Snapper Carr (guest star Ian Gomez).
Airing Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, “Supergirl” stars Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan and Calista Flockhart. Tyler Hoechlin and Ian Gomez guest star.
