Dreamer is finally getting her superhero costume on CW's Supergirl!

 

 

Nicole Maines, who plays Nia aka Dreamer, hops into costume on the January 27th episode, 'Blood Memory.'

"I'm so excited," Maines told CBR on set in November. "I'm trying to conduct myself on set in a professional manner and be like, 'Pfft! I'm not completely obsessed with the super suit!' But it's all I think about."

She's more than ready to make her mark as National City's latest masked heroine. 

"Every morning I wake up and get a super suit. I'm going to sleep, I'm getting a super suit. So I'm really, really excited. It's going to be gorgeous! I have the best super suit. I do!"

CBR also gave a synopsis of the episode:

Kara (Melissa Benoist) joins Nia (Nicole Maines) on a trip to Nia’s hometown to visit her family during the town’s annual Harvest Festival. While home, Nia’s mother (guest star Kate Burton) encourages her daughter to embrace her destiny. Meanwhile, Alex (Chyler Leigh) deals with a street drug that is turning people violent and giving them temporary superpowers.

Supergirl airs Sundays on The CW.
