Everyone is waking up for the day. Maggie and Alex. Sam and her daughter. Kara, in bed alone. They all get started for the day. Making breakfast and heading out the door. Kara does come across on thing while looking for her shoes. An old copy of Romeo and Juliet with notes in the margins.
Lena heads to Catco for her first day on the job. James didn’t expect her and isn’t ready. He doesn’t even have an office for her. That sort of thing isn’t necessary though because she is the new sort of CEO. She plans to just roam the office and interact. Kara is thrilled to have her there and gives her
Throwdown at the DEO. Alex and Maggie are serious about… wedding music. Band or DJ. They drag Winn and J’onn into it before things get back on track with discussion of a bank robber.
Supergirl steps into the bank vault and throws down with Psi (Yael Grobglas). It doesn’t go well. She gets whammied and can’t stop Psi. Maggie is the one that finds her and brings her to the DEO.
Sam gets called to Ruby’s school. Her daughter punched someone in the face and now the school wants to get to the bottom of it. Kara gets back to Catco but she missed Lena’s editorial meeting. The one James wasn’t even invited to. He’s pissed. He argues with Lena about his involvement. Kara rushes back out.
She has another confrontation with Psi. J’onn tries to protect her but ends up getting zapped. Kara remembers being sent away from Krypton and riding in her pod. She gets knocked out and when she comes to she’s alone. Alex yells for her through the intercoms.
Back at the DEO they are trying to get to the bottom of things. Winn has an ID but still no lead. Alex heads to the precinct to see if they have anything and Kara pulls Winn aside and tells him the truth about what’s happening. He wants to tell the others but Kara says no before rushing back to Catco.
Ruby and Sam talk about the fight. It’s because someone called Ruby a liar for claiming Sam had superpowers. Lena has an interview for Kara but she tries to bail. They argue about personal lives and acceptable work behavior. Kara says she will do the interview and then heads out of the office. Lena watches her go.
In the elevator, Kara has another psychic attack. She is impaired for a few minutes before jumping up and breaking straight through the roof. It’s too late. Another bank has been robbed.
Medical assessment. Winn thinks it was just a regular human panic attack. She tells him that’s not possible. When Alex comes in, Kara takes off. Alex takes the opportunity to get the whole story from Winn.
Sam gets pizza and goes to get Ruby for dinner. The kid’s gone. She’s eating pizza at a local parlor and ignoring texts from her mother. Kara is trying to meditate when Alex comes in. They talk about how to fight this battle. Kara admits that her Kara side feels broken and that she’s only sure of herself as Supergirl so she doesn’t know what she has without that. Alex responds. “You’ve got me.”
Armed truck robbery. Tons of cops respond but Psi uses some fear inducing know how to cause chaos. Ruby walks into the mess and texts her mother. Winn has some tech ready to go and Supergirl goes to save the day.
The shield doesn’t work. Supergirl has another episode. Ruby gets knocked down and Sam screams. Alex turns up. She’s the best big sister and talks Kara down. She gives her the strength to get up and fight back. She does. And she wins.
Afterward Alex keeps the pep talks coming and goes to chat with Ruby and Sam. Maggie comments on Alex’s skills with kids and she retorts that it’ll come in handy some day. Maggie makes a face. She doesn’t want kids and Alex puts the conversation off. Ruby wants her mom to have superpowers so she doesn’t have to work so much.
Kara apologizes to Lena for her behavior. She has baggage and was a crap friend. Lena tells her that there will be a learning curve for them both. She then introduces Kara to the new head honcho at L-Corp. It’s Sam.
Alex and Kara watch a movie. Lena and James have a stare down. J’onn is in the bar alone. He gets a message from M’gann. He’s needed on Mars.
So there is it. Maggie doesn’t want kids and Alex… didn’t seem to actually listen. I’m glad Kara got all mind over matter but why’s her whole life revolve around plywood? And the inevitable James and Lena set up is ridiculous. Lena is great.
