'Supergirl' Goes to Mars in 'Far From the Tree' Episode Tonight!

In the trailer for tonight's episode "Far from the Tree," Supergirl heads to Mars with J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter, on a personal mission to the Red Planet. As their spaceship streaks over Mars, a curious rover appears for a brief moment. While the rover looks curiously similiar to NASA's Curiosity rover, it does have one glaring difference: an American flag waving from a mast.

There IS an American flag on the Curiosity rover (a flag medallion on one of the rover's four mobility rocker arms) but not the sort seen in the Supergirl trailer. But authenticity aside, Supergirl is headed to MARS! 

"Far from the Tree," the third episode of Supergirl's third season, airs tonight on CW at 8 p.m./7 Central.
