Synopsis for "The Nature of the Beast!"

Nasty tries to get Linda to room with her so that she'll have more opportunities to uncover her Supergirl identity, but is denied. Linda has to become Supergirl a few seconds later, out of Nasty's sight, to save next-door neighbor Mike Merrick from an attack by a pair of monstrous bird-men. Supergirl drives them out and tries to follow, but her powers give out. She changes back to Linda Danvers and goes dancing with Mike and Nasty. Mike spends most of his time with Linda, and Nasty leaves. The two are captured by bird-men when they leave the club at an early hour. Linda and Mike end up on the island home of the bird-men. The avians' leader tells her that Mike and a professor he aided conducted scientific experiments that turned the natives of the island into the bird-men. Worse, however, was the professor's theft of a large ruby from their tribal idol, which Mike killed the professor to possess. When Linda is threatened with being immersed in lava from an active volcano, Mike says that he has the ruby secreted in his apartment. Both are imprisoned again. Mike tells Linda that the jewel theft was the professor's idea, and that the professor's death was an accident. However, he shows no remorse about helping the professor with his experiments. Mike breaks them out of their prison, and Linda, changing into Supergirl out of his sight, defeats their bird-men guards and flies herself and Mike back towards San Francisco. But her powers fade out over the ocean, and Mike saves them both with his expert swimming skills. Supergirl, exhausted, has passed out by the time they reach land. Mike kisses her, says to the sleeping Supergirl that he lied about the jewel and that when she wakes up, she'll probably have to hunt him down. Then he leaves.

Synopsis for "The Ruler Without a Planet"

After Supergirl subdues a giant ape which has broken free from a circus, she sees a young girl named Judy, about 6 years of age, blow out a fire nearby with super-breath. Supergirl questions Judy, who tells her she is from another planet and came there when she climbed aboard a spaceship, accidentally started it, and wound up on Earth. Judy also demonstrates other super-powers, such as flight and super-strength, and says that she knows Supergirl is Linda Danvers from watching her on interplanetary television. Supergirl takes Judy under her wing and lets her assist her in her duties with her super-powers, while trying lucklessly to find her stepfather. One night, her stepfather mentally contacts her, reminds her he put her on Earth to destroy its super-heroes, starting with Supergirl, to pave the way for its conquest, and demands she kill Supergirl with the Kryptonite ray he has given her. Judy almost does so, but turns away at the last moment. Angered, her stepfather tries to kill Judy with a force-bolt from his ship, but Supergirl shields her from the bolt. Judy confesses all to Supergirl. The Girl of Steel tries to capture the alien's ship, but USAF planes have detected it and are engaging it in battle, about to destroy it. Supergirl returns to Judy, telling her she could not locate the ship. Both look out the window and see the explosion of her father's ship, which Judy thinks is a falling star.
