'Supergirl' fans get a first look at the highly-anticipated new villain

Last Night Now

This week on Supergirl, Samantha Arias became one step closer to transitioning into the highly-anticipated villain of the season, "Reign".

Up until now, the show has been taking it super slow in Samantha's transition from single mother to Supergirl's most fearsome enemy yet. However, we're hoping that after the latest cliffhanger, we'll finally get to see our new supervillain sooner rather than later.

At the end of the episode, titled "The Faithful", Sam was standing in her bathroom when, all of a sudden, she glanced at herself in the mirror and saw that her skin was covered in symbols. Horrified, Sam then turned around to see a terrifying woman who eerily told her, "From Rao's fire you are born. One day soon you will reign." After screaming, Ruby came into the hallway but only saw her mother crouched on the ground alone.

We then discovered that 22 hours prior, the probe that Supergirl sent falling through a hole in the ground activated a few mysterious machines, which might have something to do with Samantha's suddenly activated vision.

One thing we do know for sure, Reign looks awesome. Prior to the new episode, Supergirl released this first look at "Reign" on Twitter, a much different and more humanized version than the ruthless Worldkiller fans know from the comic books.
