Here is the synopsis and preview images for this coming Saturday's episode, "Chained Lightning".
Learn the backstory of Lightning Lad and meet his electrifying family in an all-new episode of "Legion of Super Heroes" this Saturday. In the episode, entitled "Chained Lightning," Lightning Lad discovers that his sister, Ayla, long thought to be lost in the same Lightning Beast attack that gave him and his brother, Mekt, their powers, is really alive. However, Ayla is now in the form of pure electromagnetic energy. Lightning Lad must find a way to save Alya before Imperiex can harness this energy for his own diabolical use. Lightning Lad is voiced by Andy Milder ("Weeds"), while James Arnold Taylor ("The Boondocks," "Star Wars: Clone Wars") and Kari Wahlgren ("Ben 10") voice Mekt and Ayla, respectively. Directed by Brandon Vietti and written by Matt Wayne, "Chained Lightning" airs Saturday, October 13 at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT as part of the Kids' WB! Lineup on The CW Network.
SPOILER ALERT: Due to some surprise elements within the episode, additional images will be distributed on Monday morning.
Lightning Lad sustains traumatic injuries in battle and Brainiac 5 must help him through with surgery -- utilizing the unique assistance of Shrinking Violet.
Moments before their lives changed forever, Lightning Lad (left) fears the worst alongside his sister Ayla and brother Mekt.
Imperiex issues an ultimatum to Lightning Lad's brother, Mekt.
Bouncing Boy and Brainiac 5 work in tandem at the controls.
Nice photos! I can't wait to see Salu in a speaking (hopefully) part. Ayla is "pure electromagnetic energy"? ERGayla? I hope not!

Oh man, I love B5's Brainiac-symbol visors in the first image there. Also, him + lad assistant Vi = threeboot cuteness. Although personally I can't see any reason why she'd have to go inside Lightning Lad - I am seeing more of a nano-technology expert role for her? (And she did have a speaking role last season, I think. Like, two lines before shrinking away in the season finale.)
Also: ERG-Ayla? O_o Well, that's something we haven't seen before - and a convenient excuse for her to be away! Unless it's like the totally awesome living pink lightning form...?
Now I'll be rolling around on the floor, gurgling Mekt's name until Saturday morning, kthnxbai.
