Synopsis for "Good-Looking Corpse: Finale"
Alex gloats over Supergirl as a mind-controlled Robin and Blue Beetle pound on her. Alerted by his father that Devereaux has failed to subjugate Lois Lane, he tasks Miss Martian with scouring Supergirl's mind to get information on Superman and leaves to check on Deveraux.
It's revealed that Alex's "father" is an analytical computer created by him. When his "Father" tells him that he's being emotionally unstable because his Kryptonian cells are depleted, Alex goes off abruptly and tears the computer apart.
All of sudden, Supergirl turns up and pummels Alex. When Robin and Blue Beetle try to stop her, she knocks them out with a precisely aimed blast of super-breath. Dubbilex tries to take over her mind, but his telepathy doesn't work. Miss Martian arrives and reveals she was just letting Alex think she was being controlled, but in reality she was shutting down his telepathy without him realizing. Fed up with him, Supergirl punches him out.
After doing a lot of cleaning-up around the place, the team part ways. Supergirl meets Lois on the rooftop of the Daily Planet to hash everything out. Lois tells Devereaux is on the road to recovery, but Lois' story on Alex will not get published unfortunately because Cadmus has cut a a deal with the authorities, and they actually think they can get him rehabilitated.
Then Lois asks how Supergirl's "team" is doing. Kara states she is surprised because she expected them to blame her for what happened at Harvard, but neither of them did. Lois asks Kara if she still feels like she is not in Superman's league. Kara replies her cousin is in his own league, but if anything should ever happen to him, she will be ready to "step up to the majors."
Lois suggests they should celebrate, but Kara hears about a passenger jet's engine malfunctioning, and is off to rescue the plane.
