Supergirl will soon find herself tangled in some rather complicated politics.
Her beliefs get challenged when a visit to National City is disrupted by an attack by of all things - an alien - forcing her to turn to accept a helping hand from our friendly neighborhood extraterrestrial, Supergirl.
Cypress has also appeared on House of Cards, Elementary and The Good Wife.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8/7 on CBS.
