The match between DC heroes is finally here! Supergirl v Flash! The epic Superman and Flash race was in Superman #199 (1967) which was paralleled in promos of the episode. Last episode was a change up with Lucy taking over the DEO, Alex goes to rescue her father, and Siobhan falling to her apparent death! Siobhan was introduced as Cat’s assistant in “Truth, Justice, and the American Way.” Siobhan is on a DEO slab recovering. She is trying to win back the goodwill of the people recently by helping a family assemble an IKEA table, lol. Winn asks for what happened with Doctor Hamilton (Sarah Robson).  This may be a variation or relation to Professor Emil Hamilton, science advisor to Superman in the comics.  She explains that she vaporized the pavement with high intensity scream. He tries to reconcile with Siobhan, something happens and she walks off. In a cell, Lucy interrogates Livewire. She still wants revenge on Cat Grant and Supergirl. Catco, Cat is with Kara staring at cupcakes. They take about her love life especially about James Olsen. Cat mentions her book, The Lighthouse Technique, that got her on Oprah, love it! Siobhan is walking in the street and seized with painful screams. She walks back to Catco, Winn tries talking to her, but she ignores him and knocks him away. Kara tries to stop her and Siobhan blasts her with a Banshee scream that throws her out of the window. A flash of lightning and she is saved by The Flash! He takes her to a field and Supergirl flies away. The Flash has a device on his chest logo and doesn’t recognize her. He rattles off all of the superhero names and unmasks and says, “I’m Barry Allen, the Fastest Man Alive”!
