Synopsis for "Death of a Prez!"
Linda Danvers is watching Prez Rickard giving a public speech when she notices a hitman among the crowd. Quickly, Kara changes Supergirl and foils the assassination attempt. Later, Supergirl saves him from a second assassination attempt and decides to fly him to the White House personally, unknowingly playing right into Master Killer hands.
As watching her from afar, Master Killer gets a witch called Hepzibah mind-control Supergirl as his men fire an emotion-manipulator energy weapon. Supergirl gets struck by both psychic attacks, and although she struggles to break free, she lets Prez drop.
Master Killer is congratulating himself until he sees something has melted his radar-cranial cannon. Supergirl barges into his lair, having tracked the beam back to its source, and easily stomps Master Killer and his men. Master Killer believes he has won anyway, but later Prez reveals at a press conference Supergirl flew him to safety to the Fortress of Solitude and dropped a plastic replic to deceive Master Killer's gang.

Synopsis for "Her Brother's Keeper!"
Supergirl is invited by geneticist Dr. Forte to drop by his lab. As Forte shows his research to Supergirl, he stages a lab fire to extract one cell from her skin without her noticing. After Supergirl leaves, Forte sets out to manufacture a full-grown clone. He succeeds, although Supergirl's duplicate is different than he expected.
The next day, Supergirl meets a boy who is her identical twin flying over Vandyre University. Supergirl decides to follow "Superlad" -as she calls him- and finds he has robbed a bank. Kara fights him, but soon she realizes Superlad doesn't know the difference between right and wrong. Superlad flies off, but Supergirl tracks him back to Dr. Forte's lab.
Meanwhile, Superlad has handed his loot over to Dr. Forte. Superlad wants to know the meaning of "right" and "wrong", but his question is ignored by Forte, so he asks where he came from. Forte is explaining how he cloned him, when Supergirl bursts into the lab.
Superlad cannot let her harm his creator, so he grabs a super-laser gun. Forte orders him to kill Supergirl, but Supergirl tells him Forte is leading him into evil. Superlad can't disobey his creator but he doesn't want to kill anybody either, so he chooses to shoot himself. Supergirl captures Forte afterwards.
