Synopsis for "Who is Facet?"

In the D.E.O. command center, Supergirl and Alex Danvers meet up with Alura In-Ze's hologram an demand information about Facet. Alura begins her story.

Formed on planet Barrio thousand years ago, Facet is a living diamond being. Twenty generations ago, she was serving as a guardswoman in the first Kryptonian prison, Magin, when the biggest prison riot in Kryptonian History broke out. Facet was the only guard to survive the riot, and the only reason that Magin was retaken by the authorities. Magin reopened shortly after with Facet at its head, and she was more than enough to keep any prisoner in line.

Hundreds of years later, Alura hired Facet to run Fort Rozz. Both women worked together to bring order to the prison, but centuries guarding criminals had hardened Facet into an utterly ruthless guard. No prisoner ever tried to escape or rebel out of fear.

Kara then angrily asks if her mother sent Facet to watch over her. Her mother's hologram doesn't know, but Supergirl states Facet has been following her since her arrival, and now everyone she knows could be that woman's target. Ever since she arrived on Earth, she has been paying for her mother's decisions.

Alura's hologram can't answer, and Kara decides she is wasting her time yelling at a Artificial Intelligence, so she leaves to dwell on what she has learned.
