Synopsis for "The Girl of No Tomorrow, Part One"
Cat Grant shoots Supergirl with a weird energy gun. The Girl of Steel gets struck and falls off the balcony. As she stops her fall, Kara realizes several things: firstly, the balcony is suddenly gone; secondly, she can hear Miss Grant giving a speech several miles away; and thirdly and most importantly, although Miss Grant and the balcony were an illusion, she was shot for real, and her body absorbed the blast. Her powers have been amped up and she can't control them. Right now she's a danger to everybody, but even so she has to go to school or she will fail out.
In Gotham City, Selena casts a spell to pluck one hair from Solomon Grundy's head and grow a mindless but obedient Grundy clone. In the meantime, Emerald Empress reveals her Emerald Eye showed her Saturn Girl defeating her for good in the 30th Century, so she travelled to the 21st Century -where Saturn Girl is stranded- and tracked her down. However, Saturn Girl's telepathy revealed the vision was a lie, fabricated by someone who wanted her to kill Saturn Girl. The one will destroy Emerald Empress is Supergirl. In order to prevent her future defeat, Empress has assembled a new Fatal Five: Selena, Indigo, Magog, Solomon Grundy and herself.
Back on National City Technical High School, Kara Danvers is having an awful day. Her overloaded senses are hurting her, and her super strength makes a floor collapse accidentally. She barely manages to protect her secret identity, but her friend, rival and co-worker Benjamin Rubel appears to suspect something.
In Cat Grant's apartment, Selena pays Catherine a visit to warn the Fatal Five are going to destroy everyone Supergirl knows... including Cat herself, since her media empire supports Supergirl.
Downtown, Magog and the Solomon Grundy clone are preparing to act. Magog tells he hates super-heroes because his family died while the Justice League fought Darkseid. He also reveals Emerald Empress showed him that in the future his bloodline will die at the hands of Supergirl and her "space gods". So he's determined to destroy her and her legacy now. And the first step is to break the people's trust in her. Magog grabs some kind of sphere which he calls a magical bio-enhancement and sinks it into Grundy's chest.
After school Kara goes to The Blade -the local D.E.O. HQ- and visits her father, who is emprisoned as his body is being reconstructed. Kara tells Zor-El she just stopped Xa-Du, her powers are overloaded after someone posing as Miss Grant shot her with some type of energy, and she's frightened. She wanted to talk to him because she doesn't know who else to tell. However her father will not talk back.
Supergirl hears people in danger and leaves.
Many floors up, Director Cameron Chase is being informed of a disturbance downtown caused by a Grundy. Chase is giving orders to deal with Grundy when Emerald Empress teleports in her office. Chase fires her gun but the Emerald Eye easily stops the bullets. Sarya demands information, declaring the world will see who Supergirl truly is.
Supergirl heads to the epicenter of the crisis, although she has trouble keeping her powers under control. She flies too fast, collides with a building and crashes down into the street. Kara realizes the air feels numb like when she was shot. Though she can tell she isn't under an illusion this time. Whatever is happening, it's real.
Solomon Grundy turns up, roaring and ripping the street apart.
