In the Supergirl episode “The Faithful,” investigative reporter Kara (Melissa Benoist) looks into a secretive new cult. The leader of the cult, Thomas Coville, tells his followers “When you look into the eyes of God, you do not forget.” While snooping around, Kara discovers that Coville has a mysterious connection to Supergirl.
