Kara will face off against a destructive mirror image of herself in an upcoming episode of Supergirl airing Feb. 1.
But it won’t be Melissa Benoist playing the mirror image of her character Kara. Hope Lauren will play Bizarro Girl, EW.com has reported.
Bizarro Girl is a twisted version of Supergirl set on destroying the real Kara.
“Cat coins her Bizarro, which is very appropriate,” Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW. “As she says, I can name Supergirl, I can name her enemies. The biggest thing about it that was a surprise for us as we constructed the character and the arc was how sad Bizzaro is. In a way, we sort of think about her like Frankenstein[’s monster]. She’s a monster, but she has a pure child’s heart. Ironically, in the episode, while everyone else is saying, ‘We have to figure out a way to destroy her,’ Kara is the only one saying, ‘No, no, no, we have to save her.’ That makes the episode so emblematic of what’s so special about Kara. She’s looking to save everybody, even if they’re the bad guy.”
