In The CW network's Supergirl TV series, Season 4 Episode 17 is entitle "All About Eve" and originally aired 2019-03-31.

In an action scene about two thirds of the way through, it appeared to me that a gun moved into Alex's hand. Did I miss something in past episodes about how she came to have that ability? If the explanation comes later, please don't elaborate.

    Wasn’t it magnets in her suit? She got some kind of upgraded suit that gave her some abilities ISTR.

As mentioned in the comments, what you saw was a function of Alex's suit. The Arrowverse wiki lists the abilities the suit possesses, the one in question being;

Magnets: The suit's gloves are magnetic, which allow Alex to pull her weapons towards her if disarmed. She has also used the magnets in the suit to make a magnetic shield to defend herself or to contain explosives.

The suit makes it's first appearance in the season 3 episode Trinity. The magnetic function is explained and demonstrated around the 1:45 mark here;

  • Can you offer any evidence other than the wiki?

  • Wiki isn't always reliable. Could you provide actual evidence other than fan pages/wikis?
