Sooner than this week’s episode, we all knew that Morgan Edge wasn’t a captivating dude. But dang, Mo, poisoning formative years to get back at a industry rival? That’s decrease than low.
Young folks all the plot in which via National City have fallen in uncomfortable health with lead poisoning, and Edge wastes no time in appearing reside on tv to blame Lena Luthor and the anti-Daxamite lead bomb she created.
In deepest, Edge accuses Lena of desperate to be a hero so badly that she didn’t care who she harm. Lena straight away makes plans to step down from CatCo and L-Corp to retain away from the appears of bias, quilt-up, or monetary make. Kara thinks this makes Lena watch guilty, but James consents that it’s the steady name.
This sentiment is reinforced when a distraught father storms the newsroom, making me wonder what more or much less shoddy security CatCo has. I imply, the eight-particular person newsroom I labored in numerous years within the past had programs in station to retain randos from wandering in, and it changed into as soon as a puny paper with entirely one computer that connected to the web. (Did I level out it changed into as soon as several years within the past?) Anyway, if that security outflanks CatCo’s, that’s a topic.
At James’ suggestion, Lena holds a press conference to safe in entrance of the account. While she’s talking, Kara hears the sound of a gun cocking, but she isn’t in a station to stumble on the shooter till it’s too gradual. A girl with a in uncomfortable health minute one open fires on the platform, and James takes a bullet within the shoulder whereas pushing Lena out of the fashion.
To stare if the bomb really continuously is the culprit, Winn recreates a check that previously showed that ninety nine.Ninety six p.c of the lead molecules from the bomb bonded to Daxamite genes, leaving entirely .04 p.c as the margin of error. But when he and Kara redo the check, entirely 89.seventy nine p.c bonded, increasing a 10 p.c probability that the bomb is the trigger.
Meanwhile, Samantha invitations Lena to follow her, despite Lena’s direct that she’s endangering her and Ruby. When Kara swings by later to account the check results, Lena is inebriated and entire of self-loathing. She says she’s been a pariah all her lifestyles this ability that of her wealth and her brother, when all she ever wished changed into as soon as to be captivating. The lead bomb changed into as soon as the one captivating ingredient she carried out, and now she’s the monster who poisons adolescents.
When Kara tries to argue that there’s composed a possibility it wasn’t her fault, Lena says she loves Kara’s propensity for finding the captivating in folks, but “stop believing me, k? I’m no longer worth it.” Oh, Lena. (She also tells Kara that she’s unpleasant at hiding things from her, which could be very comic.)
As soon as Lena passes out, Kara and Samantha continue their study whereas attending to know every other. Shall we relate, they’re both adopted, and they’re both plagued with heinous dreams. What a wild twist of destiny, and under no circumstances one thing that can have major implications within the long term!
As they ogle for commonalities among the victims, Samantha by some ability accesses the families’ bank records. (Which, what? How? That distinct isn’t correct.) They scrutinize that several of the families had been at the same Oktoberfest, and when they approach at the venue, the public pool becomes a most likely culprit.
Kara collects a water sample that she sends to Winn for prognosis, and he declares it a synthetic compound that, when mixed with water, acts love lead, poisonings and all. The provide closet’s plump of buckets and buckets of the stuff, all courtesy of Acre Lee Chemical. When Kara calls Lena with the captivating data that it changed into as soon as the pool and no longer the bomb, Lena claims by no technique to have heard of that particular firm.
It’s a lie, obviously, and Lena confronts Edge in his office about his ownership of Acre Lee, which did the explicit poisoning. Edge mocks her thought of a “he mentioned, she mentioned” fight within the media, but that’s no longer what Lena has in mind. She pulls a gun and says she consents with the woman who shot at her that morning: The one that made these adolescents in uncomfortable health deserves to die, without the support of a trial or jury. Edge tells her she isn’t pondering clearly, but she corrects him: She’s pondering love a Luthor.
Then one of Edge’s henchmen conks her the head, and she comes to gradual a pilot-much less cargo plane plump of Acre Lee chemical barrels. Edge and one of his henchman are controlling the plane from the ground, directing it to a reservoir to contaminate the total water. They jam Lena’s attempted harm signal, however the DEO intercepts enough for Supergirl to zoom to the rescue.
When the plane’s cargo doorways open to dump its payload, Lena is able to retain the barrels from tumbling out, but she won’t be in a station to fight gravity for lengthy. Fortunately, Supergirl arrives within the gash of time to conclude the hatch. (Next net page: Sanvers breaks our hearts)
