We're here to Talk...about tonight's Supergirl secrets.

Kara encounters Red Kryptonite for the first time and every bad thought she's ever had comes bubbling to the surface. If you wondered what Supergirl would be like if she was a mean girl, now you know. Kara opened up and was brutally honest with everyone around her, and we're going to do the same—but in a nicer way! Here are some of the DCTV Secrets from this week's episode:

  • What is Red Kryptonite?
  • Who is Perry White?

It Comes with the Worst Side Effects

Grumpiness from being “hangry” has nothing on the sort of malicious feelings that come from Red Kryptonite. The glowing crimson rock was created by Maxwell Lord, and it turns Kara into a dangerous, rage-filled version of Supergirl. In the comics, Red Kryptonite had different effects—no two pieces of the substance caused the same issues. On Smallville, Clark Kent reacted like Kara and became rebellious and selfish. Other results of being exposed to Red Kryptonite have included bizarre mood swings, amnesia, the growth of additional limbs and accelerated aging. No matter the effect, if you’re Kryptonian, you’re going to want to steer clear of the stuff.

"Great Caesar's Ghost!"

Siobhan's ambition gets the better of her, and she considers sending her big Supergirl scoop to Perry White. He's none other than the editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet. The curmudgeonly but fair White was introduced back in SUPERMAN #7. He rose through the ranks, starting his career as a freelance reporter. White's widely known as a talented journalist and has led the Daily Planet through thick and thin.

See you next week!
