Synopsis for "World's Finest"
After exchanging greetings, Kara asks Barbara's help to solve a case: She's been getting long-distance telepathic messages from someone named Gayle who claims to be a Kryptonian kept prisoner in a Cadmus Black Site lab. Barbara points out that "incarcerated psychic" is an old trick and Kara agrees, but she isn't willing to risk leaving one of her people in danger. She needs to break into that place, and she could use Batgirl's help to go into the lab stealthily and deal with Wayne Tech security.
Batgirl agrees to help Supergirl out to the latter's delight. A short while later, both girls sneak in the facility and make their way to the P-Wing. On the way to the lower levels they stumble on another prisoner (called Caleb) who attacks them, mistaking them with guards. After subduing him, Batgirl and Supergirl assure him that they'll get him out of that place.
Both heroines finally reach the Prisoner Wing and find Gayle. It turns out that Gayle isn't Kryptonian. Someone put in her head something called "the key to the Phantom Zone". Said "key" lets her speak Kryptonian and tells Supergirl can send Gayle where she needs go: the Phantom Zone. She needs Supergirl's power to get there.
Horrified, Kara tries to warn Gayle about the horrors of the Phantom Zone, but Gayle doesn't care. She argues the Zone can't be worse than a Cadmus lab, and there she'll find the one can "fix" her. She telekinetically holds the heroes still and touches Supergirl's emblem. Supergirl cries out in pain and Gayle vanishes.
Supergirl slumps over, feeling weakened and sick. Batgirl picks Supergirl up, and carrying her in arms, get them out of the lab unseen.
Later, Barbara and Kara are resting somewhere in the Mojave Desert. Kara is feeling a bit better but she is mortified because she couldn't help Gayle. Barbara nods at Caleb, who is sleeping nearby, and reminds Kara that she has helped someone, even if it wasn't who Supergirl expected.
Batgirl also states she has the feeling that story isn't over. Supergirl asks if she can call her in the future, and Barbara tells she already hacked Kara's phone and put her number in it.
