Synopsis:
Supergirl, Nightwing, and Flamebird are transported into an alley. Supergirl attacks the others, thinking they tried to kill her. They deny it, and Nightwing reveals to her that he is Chris. They are interrupted first by a crowd calling them killers, then by the Guardian and the Science Police, who accuses them of killing Mon-El. They barely manage to escape, fleeing to an apartment Supergirl has in Paris. While Flamebird listens in on various newscasts throughout the world, Supergirl and Nightwing discuss the situation, including that Flamebird seems to be crazy for believing she is connected to the real Flamebird. Flamebird also listens in on that conversation, and confronts Supergirl, who also is accusing her of letting her father die. That's too much for Flamebird, who punches Supergirl through the wall and into the Eiffel Tower. There, they are confronted by Squad K. Meanwhile, Lois is trying to track down her father, and is warned by Cat Grant that she is championing aliens who are killers and not on our side.
