Synopsis for "Crucible, Part 3"
In Rome, Italy, Kon-El comes out of the monastery he has been living in for weeks and hangs out at a comic convention. He's still trying to figure out his place in the world, but for first time in a long time he's starting to feel like he has a chance to be more than a biological weapon.
In planet Ngo, Supergirl and her crew engage Roho and his companions, Vax and Rendll. During the skirmish, Kara learns Roho and his friends were all Crucible students that were expelled for not following the rules. Right when she's about to take Roho down, Vax uses a paralyzing stare. Roho and his soldiers teleport to "a backwater world" while leaving Supergirl and her schoolmates alive so they can witness his "endgame".
Comet picks up a telepathic trail that the team can follow to track Roho down. Tsavo decides to stay to take care of her wounded parents. Kara wants to stay to help her friend out but Tsavo talks her out of it. Maxima opens a spatial gate, and the three friends step through it and in Earth, arriving at the same comic convention in where Kon is whiling away the time.
They find Roho trying to capture Superboy. Supergirl instinctively jumps into the role of the leader, telling Comet to telepathically disable Vax's paralyzing stare and Maxima protect the civilians. Kara battles Roho to protect Kon, but she cannot help but wondering if she can or must trust Crucible.
Seeing he cannot win that battle, Roho takes his wounded and escapes, reiterating they will not win the war and he'll see them soon again.
Then, Maxima lets Kara know that she has her own mission. Amata has ordered her to bring Kon to Crucible, and she isn't going to back down to Kara.
Kara doesn't know what is right and wrong or whom she can trust, but she wants to protect Kon, so she gets between him and Maxima and declares her friend will have to go through her.
