Supergirl: Chad Lowe Joins As Kara Zor-El Worshipper

at .

Kara Danvers may have a huge fanbase, but we did not expect a cult to worship her. 

According to EW, Chad Lowe will appear on Supergirl Season 3 Episode 4, titled "The Faithful."

He will play Thomas Coville, a religious leader who runs a whole cult devoted to National City's most famous savior. 

Yes, you guys, the Girl of Steel has a group of followers who are a little too infatuated with her for their own good. 

According to the description, "He’s a deeply spiritual man, committed to preaching his faith and transforming his followers’ lives."

The episode is scheduled to air at the end of October, but that's not to say Chad will be done with hit CW series.

In fact, he will have a heavy influence on the show just a few weeks later, with him being signed up to direct Supergirl Season 3 Episode 7, which is titled "Wake Up."

Chad has built up an impressive resume both on and off the screen over years. 

The former Pretty Little Liars star previously directed episodes of the hit Freeform drama, along with the likes of Brothers & Sisters and Bones. 

Lowe is the latest in a long line of additions ahead of the new season of the series. 

It was previously announced that Odette Annable had landed the role of Reign and was added as a series regular. Reign is set to be the central villain. 

On top of that, Smallville veteran Erica Durance has joined in a recast as Kara's mother, Alura.

Supergirl Quotes

Kara: I recognize I made a mistake in hiding my identity from you for so long, but the past is the past and I can't change it. Forgive me or not, that's your choice. Just like it's your choice to work with Lex. I'm done blaming myself for your bad decisions.
Lena: Then why are you here?
Kara: To tell you that from now on, you're accountable for your own actions. If you decide to forgive me, I will be there for you. But if you continue to work with Lex, if you go through with whatever it is the two of you are planning, I will do everything in my power to stop you. Just like I would any other villain.

Lena: It's you. Kara Danvers is Supergirl.
Kara: Yeah.
Lena: Can't believe I was fooled by a pair of glasses.
Kara: Don't worry, a lot of people are.
Lena: Oh god, I'll have to recall all those alien detection devices because they clearly don't work.
Kara: You're not angry?
Lena: No, it's incredible! I mean, you're incredible! But why are you trusting me with such a big secret? You barely know me.
Kara: Because I know that what you want more than anything is to do good. And I know it's hard for you to trust people, but I need you to know now, without a doubt, I trust you. My cousin, your brother, they got it wrong. Imagine what we could do together, a Luthor and a super working together as a team!
Lena: If we were partners, we could change the world.
