Synopsis for "Way of the World (Part II of III)"
After breaking Doctor Luzano out of prison, Supergirl takes a few hair samples of Thomas Price and flies back to Luzanos' secret headquarters, arriving just in time to break a fight between Luzano and Resurrection Man. Kara hands over the cell samples to Luzano and asks if he can help out. Luzano admits that programming tektites to target metastasized cells is a challenge but he's willing to undertake it for a child's sake. Then he shuts himself in his lab.
Mitchell tries to warn Supergirl that Luzano isn't to be trusted. Kara states she's aware, but she needs Luzano's expertise... and maybe he has never had the chance to do something good. Then she gets to line the roof with lead so her cousin can't find them yet.
Supergirl and Resurrection Man wait for a while until they realize Luzano is up to no good. When they check in on him, Luzano has replicated the tektites in Shelley's body and infused them into his own. Luzano blasts Shelley down and pounces on Supergirl, gloating over his new powers. Supergirl isn't impressed with his "hyper-sensual perception" and angrily demands to know if he has done anything what she asked him to. When Luzano admits he never had any intention to help Thomas, Supergirl gets mad.
Supergirl and Luzano trade blows and destroy most of the laboratory. As fighting they discover Resurrection Man has resurrected, this time with healing powers. Luzano attempts to kill him, and Supergirl decides she's had it with Luzano. She takes down and knocks him out. Kara blasts a hole into the roof so Superman can find him, takes Shelley and heads back to the hospital.
As flying over the country, Superman comes upon her. Kara apologizes for breaking Luzano out and starts explaining she may have found a way to cure Thomas, but Superman cuts his cousin off to tell her that her efforts are being wasted. Thomas is dead.
