Synopsis for "Secret Identities"
Kara is trying to get used to her new life. After buying her own apartment and adopting a cat called Streaky, she's adopted the alias Claire Connors and enrolls at Guggenheim High School. Captain Boomerang suggests her to watch prison films to help her survive high school.
Kara goes to school but she has trouble fitting in. At lunchtime she's going to sit next to a blonde girl when she's warned against it by a red-haired girl called Becky. Kara quickly becomes friends with Becky, although she avoids to talk about her private life.
Later, Supergirl visits her friend Wonder Girl, who happens to be fighting Monsieur Mallah. While helping Cassandra take Mallah down, Kara discuss her new and intriguing school life. Cassie warns her high school isn't as fun as she thinks: being a teenager is tough, and high-schoolers always wear masks.
Back on school, Kara also befriends Drew, Becky's boyfriend. Becky invites Kara to her house for a sleepover party. Kara seems to be enjoying herself until a girl named Sarah knocks on the door. Kara meant well when she invited her to the sleepover, but Sarah is mercilessly mocked by the other girls.
The next day, Kara feels terrible. She likes Becky and wants to be friends with her but, having been bullied back on Krypton, she'll never condone that kind of behavior. She opens up to Drew, unaware that a jealous Becky is glaring at them.
Becky later apologizes to Kara for her actions during the sleepover; at the same time she convinces Sarah the bullying during the sleepover was Kara's idea and recruits her to play a prank on Kara for getting close to her boyfriend.
Kara feels tempted to blast away Becky and all teenagers laughing at her, but she controls herself. The blonde girl who Kara wanted to befriend before meeting Becky shows up to berate her schoolmates for picking on Kara.
Kara decides a secret identity was a bad idea. She removes her wig and school clothes, revealing herself as Supergirl. Before flying off, she tells the other students they should stop pretending to be someone else.
