Synopsis for "Mission: Mind"
In the D.E.O.'s Ghost Site "The Scabbard", Dr. Veritas believes she may have found a way to cure Lar-On. She theorizes light isn't the cause of his transformation, ergo the trigger must be mental or emotional. Her plan is using a machine to create an energy duplicate of Supergirl and project it into Lar-On's mind while he's in stasis so that Kara can discover the cause of his changes.
Kara agrees to the plan and travels into Lar-On's mind after being warned by Director Chase that should things go bad, a failsafe will put her in stasis.
Lar-On's mind is a weird, ever-changing and dangerous place, filled with inner demons. As Kara navigates through the mindscape and fights packs of werewolves, she finds the root of Lar-On's frustration and anger. When he was a child he dreamed of being an astronaut and exploring the stars. However his father always chided him for it, insisting he was setting himself up for failure and disappointment and he should learn to live with himself rather than attempting to achieve an impossible dream.
Supergirl approaches kid Lar-On and reaches him out. She tells him he mustn't tear himself down, and he can be brave, no matter what his father thinks. And only because he maybe has a bad dream, he shouldn't stop to dream. Then she scoops him up and takes Lar-On to Mithen and Wegthor, two Kryptonian moons he yearned for visiting.
Kara wakes up. She explains everyone the Moon does trigger Lar-On's transformation because it reminds him that people always doubted him. When he sees the Moon he gets angry, and anger triggers the change. Supergirl thinks that since the trigger is psychological, they can find a way to help him.
Several days later Supergirl attends a ceremony in National City in honor of those who perished during the attack of the Argonian cyborgs. While she makes a touching speech, Kara says her final farewell to her mother.
The next morning, Kara is sitting on a cloud bank and brooding over when her cousin shows up and says they need to talk.
