Now we continue with “Blood Bonds.” Supergirl and Non fly through the roof of Lord Technologies and fight in the night sky. They have to dodge a 747 and Non slams Supergirl down.

Alex takes over from Hank as director with Henshaw gone. Supergirl talks with Astra in her cell. Astra threatens to tell the truth about her mother. She tells her that she ordered Non to spare her niece. Supergirl walks away. Astra tells her the Kryptonian saying, “Blood binds us all.” Flashback to Krypton, Astra in binders talks with her sister, Lara. Non and Astra are given the sentence of lifetime imprisonment in Fort Roz. Non yells at her, “Do you hear me Lara, you have killed your daughter!” before he is transported to the Phantom Zone. Catco, Jimmy wants to investigate Lord with Win in a meeting with Kara. She reveals that Cat know she’s Supergirl. Kara accidentally blasts a cup with her heat vision.
