'Supergirl' Season 5 Episode 14 will not air on Sunday, but the intriguing plotline makes the wait worthwhile
Not many saw a break coming when The CW released a synopsis that sees Kara Danvers assigned to protect Andrea Rojas/ Acrata
After a landmark 100th episode that finally gave some closure to the Kara Danvers-Lena Luthor (Melissa Benoist- Katie McGrath) relationship, the upcoming episode will shift focus back to the other plotlines. However, the Girl of Steel fans will have a bit of a wait as 'Supergirl' will not be airing this weekend.
While there is no exact reason specified as to why the episode is slated to air on March 8 instead. It could just probably be another break so 'The Flash' could catch up with the series in terms of the number of episodes. Just another scheduling break maybe. The CW though has released the synopsis and the promo for Episode 14.
The synopsis reads: "LENA MOVES FORWARD WITH NON NOCERE – Lex (guest star Jon Cryer) tasks Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) with protecting Andrea (Julie Gonzalo) from an anti-tech extremist, but his nefarious purpose goes beyond merely keeping Andrea alive. Meanwhile, Lena (Katie McGrath) moves forward with Non-Nocere with Lex’s help. Gregory Smith directed the episode with story by Lindsay Sturman and teleplay by Emilio Ortega Aldrich & Chandler Smidt (#514). Original airdate 3/8/2020."
This just means Lena has maybe decided to sever ties with Kara after all. That Kara's protecting Andrea Rojas without the knowledge the latter is Acrata is an interesting theory. Plus Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) comes back to the storyline. Andrea is also the one common connection between Leviathan and Lex, so there's quite a bit of answering 'The Bodyguard' will need to do.

This isn't exactly a new promo as it used footage from previous episodes. But we can expect one to drop in next week.
What are your thoughts on Kara being Acrata's bodyguard?
'Supergirl' Season 5 airs Sundays 9 pm on The CW.
