Synopsis for "Girl Power, Part III of V: Outsiders"
Supergirl is combat training with Grace, Thunder and Arsenal wearing a pair of Kryptonite-infused handcuffs until Nightwing arrives and puts an end to the training. Supergirl is smitten with Nightwing and barely hears him as he tells her that Starfire has a lead on who's been tracking her.
Three days ago, Starfire told her the Outsiders had looked into and found out who was spying on her: Lex Luthor. Kara was staying at their base while the team tracked Luthor down. Finally Starfire has located him in Monument Valley, Utah.
Kara is ready to take off right now, feeling she has to confront Luthor alone. Nightwing tries to dissuade her, but she impulsively plants a quick kiss on his lips and flies off towards Monument Valley. The Outsiders want to follow her to keep an eye on her, but Supergirl has sabotaged the control grid of The Pequod with a blast of heat vision.
Supergirl arrives in Utah and finds Lex Luthor waiting for her and wearing his battlesuit. Kara engages him valiantly but Luthor pummels her with ease thanks to his Kryptonite-enhanced armaments. When he gets her on the ground, he projects a ray of Black Kryptonite energy at her with surprising results. An evil version of Supergirl, wearing a black-and-white costume, emerges from Supergirl's prone body. Speaking Kryptonese, she tells Lex that "you just made the biggest mistake of what's left of your life!"
