“Blake will play Adam Foster, a mysterious figure from Cat Grant’s (Calista Flockhart) past whose presence in National City throws Kara’s relationship with her boss for quite a loop.

It will be the second time the couple has acted on the same show. Back when Melissa played Marley Rose on Glee, Blake starred alongside her portraying Ryan Lynn. The couple met and fell in love on the set of the Fox hit, and tied the knot in a super secret ceremony in March 2015 after getting engaged in 2013. They did such a great job at keeping their wedded bliss a secret that it wasn’t until Melissa appeared months later at San Diego’s Comic-Con to support Supergirl that someone noticed a thin silver band on her ring finger! Busted!
