The Master Jailer has pursued 2445 (Todd Sherry) and throws a bar that trips him up, then Supergirl arrives. Supergirl catches his chains, but he is quick.

The detectives are driving when they are stopped by Supergirl. Detective Draper shoots his partner and the Master Jailer armor forms around him. Alex revives with Hank’s call, she wore a bulletproof vest, and reports that the Master Jailer took Kara. Supergirl is in pain and imprisoned bathed in red sun rays that weaken her. Her fellow prisoner, Alfonse Luzano is awkward with his English expressions, “I would say we are up a creek without a poodle.” Luzano is a character who first appeared in Supergirl #28 (2008).

He gives judgment to the prisoner. Alex is closing on the forest cabin with DEO agents. Luzano pleads innocence and Supergirl tries to break free. DEO agents move in. The agents break in, but find the cabin is empty.

The Master Jailer renders the judgment on the prisoner at the energy guillotine. Alex checks the cabin floor, breaks through, and finds a ship. The agents break in and open fire. Alex is held by the Master Jailer at the guillotine and uses her gun to create holes in the cabin to bring in sunlight. Supergirl takes the Master Jailer by the neck, snaps it?, and then flies away Luzano so he can return to teach. At the DEO, Alex frees Maxwell Lord, Supergirl won’t let the fear of Lord revealing Kara Danvers’ identity get to her. Alex threatens him with a dossier of his crimes if he does reveal her sister. At Catco, Siobhan walks next to Kara, who tells her she wants to be the next Cat Grant. Kara thanks Jimmy, “You make me a better hero.” He tells her about the lie he told Lucy and wants to reveal to Lucy that Kara is Supergirl. The DEO, Supergirl meets with the hologram of her mother, and mentions Myriad. The hologram will self-destruct if she continues about Myriad. Hank is watching with Supergirl who tells him, “There’s always another way.” She leaves the DEO, for good? Three Kryptonite bars out of Five!
