SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for "Menagerie," the latest episode of Supergirl.
Soon, Supergirl will have to worry about more than the Children of Liberty. In "Menagerie," the latest episode, Manchester Black recruited Pamela Ferrer and her alien symbiote Menagerie for the Elite, his new super team.
Over the course of the episode, Supergirl attempted to help her sister Alex as her alter-ego Kara Danvers. Together, they solved a mystery that involved Pamela becoming possessed by Menagerie, which inspired them to go on a crime spree. Supergirl attempted to stop the human-alien hybrid, only for the Children of Liberty to interfere. Under the direction of George Lockwood, Agent Liberty's son, they beheaded Menagerie and captured Pamela.
Unfortunately for Pamela, the Children of Liberty surrendered her to the police. Because their involvement forced the case into the public eye, President Baker demanded she go to a regular prison instead of a DEO facility as a warning to those she inspired. As such, Pamela was hauled off to prison.
As Pamela languished in a cell, a security guard dropped off a letter and told her it was from Manchester Black. Pamela took it and flipped it over, revealing a wax seal with the Union Jack pressed into it. As she smiled down at the letter, the skin under her neck pulsed, suggesting Menagerie hadn't died at the Children of Liberty's hands after all.
The trailer for the next episode of Supergirl suggests she will indeed join Manchester Black's Elite team. Titled “What's So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way?” after the pivotal Superman story of the same name, the episode will see Menagier team up with Manchester Black, the Hat and the Morae to take on Supergirl and the Children of Liberty, whom Black seeks revenge against for its role in the death of his alien girlfriend Fiona.
Pending another development in the episode, the Elite may be the least of her problems. After all, President Baker had Ben Lockwood, aka Agent Liberty, released from prison under the pretense that the Patriot Act didn't apply to persons from other planets. As such, he's free to lead the Children of Liberty once more, which will be a major thorn in Supergirl's side.
Airing Sundays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen and Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers.
