Synopsis for Supergirl: "The Voodoo Machine"

Supergirl saves her mother Edna from a Visitor. As Supergirl and Edna confront the assassin, two intangible figures reason Supergirl can't touch the Visitor because he is only a trasmitted image, but their own energy auras can disrupt him. Quickly they get a hold of the Visitor, and the trio dissipates, but not before Supergirl can identify both figures as Zor-El and Allura. Kara decides she needs to go see their parents.

Supergirl is approaching the Fortress of Solitude, unaware that her flight is being watched by the Visitors, who believe they will be free from her interference for a while during which they will test the Voodoo Machine once again.

Supergirl arrives in Kandor and finds her parents' house empty, and a cryptic, unfinished note lying on a table. Supergirl deciphers the note and realizes her parents are in the Survival Zone again, so she leaves Kandor and contacts them through a dimensional monitor. Zor-El reveals they were thrown into the Zone again accidentally when Fred Danvers activated the Voodoo Machine. The Visitors duped Fred into helping them create a machine capable of creating a three-dimensional image they could interact with, affecting the real object or person. However the machine wasn't powerful enough to maintain the Voodoo Effect for long, and Fred refused to keep aiding them when he realized they intended to use the device as a weapon. Unfortunately, his attempts to warn Supergirl revealed her identity to the group.

Supergirl asks their parents about the location of the Voodoo Machine and her adoptive father, but they can't pinpoint the exact place. They only know it is in a mountain range in the Eastern United States of America. Supergirl flies off.

Meanwhile, the Visitors are blackmailing Fred with killing his wife. Right then they realize Supergirl is searching for their base, and force Fred to step into the Voodoo Machine and warn Supergirl her mother will die if she interferes.

Supergirl is soaring over the Catskill Mountains when Fred's image shows up and tries to warn her away. Supergirl is considering to trace that image to his source when he tells there's a stone wall before her. Supergirl realizes he has given her the information she needed and prepares to attack.
