Previously on Supergirl...
Now, it is time, you avenge yourself
against the brother who wronged you.
- You. - Sorry, not sorry.
Can you believe the fourth estate saved the day?
Kara Danvers is Supergirl.
Your friends have been lying to you.
- Damn it. - The brakes.
Help! Help us!
When I grow up, I wanna be just like you.
Oh, that's easy, you just have to fight for what's right
and always tell the truth.
Always tell the truth, that's rich.
is everything all right?
Why so formal?
I thought we were best friends.
- You know? - Know what?
That you're a hypocrite who's been lying to me for years?
No, Lena, I didn't-- -
Virtual reality simulation terminated.
May I ask you something, Ms. Luthor?
These simulations you've been running in virtual reality.
My calculations show it's possible
they can be achieved in the real world.
Are you offering to help me kill Supergirl?
Yes. Would you like me to facilitate?
I appreciate the offer, Hope.
You grow more intelligent and capable by the day.
And your assistance comes without ambition, drama, or ego.
- That's why you built me. - Precisely.
Because I trust in technology, not people.
People are governed by feelings.
Anger, hurt, sadness, and I'm guilty of that too.
That's why I engage in these simulations,
to excise these emotions.
I'm not a villain.
I don't want to kill Supergirl, I just want her to experience
the same hurt she inflicted on me.
And soon enough she will.
Thought I was gonna be late,
but looks like I turned up just at the right time.
What is going on with these people?
- They're completely oblivious. - By their silver eyes,
I would say that they were Slattorians.
A race of aliens I came across during an investigation.
Oh, your PI powers of deduction are failing you, J'onn J'onzz.
The silver eyes are courtesy of Obsidian North.
Isn't that the company you're working for, Kelly?
Today is my official first day.
Those are augmented reality contact lenses
that we're beta testing. The people with the silver eyes
that are staring at the void above the cashier?
They're actually looking at a virtual menu.
I'll show you.
So when you wear the contact lenses,
you're linked to tons of people on a social media platform,
and they can connect without saying a word.
Kind of like you and me.
You guys are so cute.
But those contact lenses creep me out.
Just call me when you can register to vote
with a gesture.
'Cause, look, there's about to be a special election,
and did you know that voter registration is down?
People don't wanna pay attention
to what's happening in the real world.
Yeah, but, you know, some good things have happened
since your article came out and took down President Baker,
exposed Lex Luthor.
is being presented with a Pulitzer tomorrow
'cause you're the one that helped make it happen.
It does feel good to have my work recognized,
but I just thought after Baker was ousted,
more people would be hungry
and ready to fight for social change.
And now it just seems like everyone's hiding behind their gadgets.
Technology does a lot of good too, Kara.
In my new job, I am going to be using Obsidian's VR tech
to heal the brains of dementia and patients.
Touche. I'm a curmudgeon.
Your new job sounds amazing,
and I'm so glad we're working in the same building.
Big Belly Burger lunches.
Ooh, look at the time. I gotta fly, guys.
I'm teaching a Tai Chi class to a group of kids.
Oh, that's wonderful, J'onn.
Yeah, I'm living with clarity and purpose.
- It's gonna be great. - You know what would not be great
is me being late for my first day.
- No. - Okay, I gotta run, bye.
- Bye. - Bye.
Hey, how did it go with Lena last night?
I mean, I'm dying to hear. -
Oh, no, I know that face.
Are you ser-- You didn't say anything? You didn't tell her?
It's not my fault, I had to take the dog to the vet.
You don't have a dog, Kara.
My neighbor's dog. Mrs. Stein.
- Oh, come on. - She needed my help.
You have to tell Lena that you're Supergirl,
- but-- - When I told you to hold off,
I just meant for one night.
But there's been so much going on.
I'm covering the special election,
and with the dog, and I'm helping you
recover all those prisoners from the DEO desert facility.
And the DEO and I very much appreciate that.
But you're doing all these other things
when there's just one thing that you need to do.
I've just put it off for so long,
I'm being given an award
for my tireless pursuit of the truth,
and I'm a liar.
- I'm terrible. - You're not terrible.
You're just scared.
I am so scared.
I'm so scared that she's never gonna forgive me, Alex.
I mean what kind of person
lies to their best friend for this long?
