Meanwhile, Kara found out that the head of Cadmus was Luthors’ mother. That is why she interviewed Lena Luthor about her. However, Lena did not reveal much about her mother whom she hated from a long time.

On the other hand, Mon-el was hanging out in a bar full of aliens when he saw the real Hank Henshaw there. He now calls himself as Cyborg superman. He followed him outside. It turns out; Henshaw planted a device with a virus called Medusa in a form of smoke, inside the bar. It only targets aliens. Luckily, though Mon-el loses his battle against Henshaw outside the bar, it saved him from the virus.

While Kara and Mon-el were in quarantine, Alex and the rest of his DEO team studied the virus. They found out that the virus was from Krypton, which they use as a weapon against other alien. In line with this, Kara found out that Cadmus took her blood to enter the fortress of solitude. This is why they had access in the Medusa information.

Lena Luthor Betrays her Mother

Cadmus’ goal is to spread the virus across the entire city. With this, they needed a rare element called isotope 454. They can only find it in Lena Luthor’s company. Supergirl talked to Lena. When she thought that the latter would turn against her, she tried her best to save the city not knowing Lena has her own plans.

Moreover, the device with Medusa virus exploded all throughout the city. However, Lena Luthor switched out the isotope. The aliens in the city did not die and her mother was captured by the police. In addition, J’onn was healed, Alex was accepted by her family as gay but Olsen still did not reveal that he is The Guardian.

Furthermore, the last scene showed that a group of aliens are headed towards the city. They are looking for Mon-el… are they against him or for him? Fans will soon find out when Supergirl Season 2 episode 9 returns on Jan. 23, Monday.
