Synopsis for "Crucible: Conclusion"
As Korstus gloats, Tsavo and Comet -who had been hiding in the wings- join the fight. During the battle, Maxima and Amata are freed and the device depowering Supergirl is destroyed, although Kara's power isn't fully replenished.
Kara wants to get Kon out of the cloning pod, but her super senses tell her she can't just pull him out. All of the pods are connected to his body, and the filaments are buried in his skin. So, as her friends keep Korstus' allies at bay, she combines her heat vision and microscopic vision to destroy the filaments. Kara manages to save Kon, but the clonelings' growth has begun. If they try to stop it, they will trigger a fail-safe explosive mechanism what will destroy a section of the school.
Kara and Kon decide to stay to disable the bomb, guessing they have the best chance to survive. Supergir's friends protest but she send them away, stating the shool and everybody else will need them in the event that they fail.
Supergirl and Superboy destroy the cloning mechanism and manage to survive the explosion.
In the aftermath of the battle, Korstus and his allies are locked down, Amata accepts a position on the board of Crucible, Tsavo is named Preceptor and Maxima agrees to be his assistant, Comet decides to head back into space to rejoin his team -The Wanderers-, and Kon and Kara look to return to Earth. As they say goodbye to each other and hug, Maxima admits she's been inspired by Kara.
Back on Earth, Kara feels more controlled and more thoughtful. However, she realizes she appears to have lost her powers.
