Synopsis for "Forever"
While training Zillius Zox and Skallox test a missile launcher on Supergirl. Kara dodges and destroys most of the projectiles but one that manages to tag her. Although the missile doesn't harm her it gets her angry, making her destroy the missile launcher. Kara then apologizes. She knew she had no reason to get mad... but she got mad and wanted to stay mad. Her teammates confirm that wearing a Red Ring is a continuous struggle to control and channel your rage.
Then they take her to the bar. Guy shows up to stop Zillus and Skallox from giving her an alcoholic drink. Kara yells she can do what she wants and reaches for the drink, accidentally shattering the glass and harming him. She feels instantly remorseful, apologizes and wants to help him, but Guy insists that he is fine.
However Guy is extremely concerned about her psychological issues, doubting his own ability to handle a teenage Kryptonian Red Lantern, and afraid of Superman's reaction when the Last Son of Krypton finds out what his cousin is now a Red Lantern.
Guy and his team head to Earth, and he tries to sneak out to talk to Superman privately, but Kara finds them. Superman is not happy to find out what has happened to Kara, and Kara is even less happy to find out what she is a Red Lantern forever because she will die if she takes off her Ring. A piece of information that neither of her so-called partners considered she would want be told about.
Kara calls her team out on keeping things from her and claims nobody understands what she is going through. Dryly, her cousin reminds her that he always wanted to help her, be her family and be there for her, but she turned down every attempt to reach her out. Superman points out that she has clung to her grief and anger and rejected acceptance for so long that she has become anger. Then he turns to Guy to say he cannot keep her with him and help her if she doesn't want to stay; and he trusts Guy to look after his family for the present time. After warning he will be watching anyway, Kal says goodbye to Kara and flies off.
Back in Ysmault, the Red Lanterns find Bleez badly wounded and sprawled on the ground by the Blood Lake. Bleez mumbles that Atrocitus is still alive before fainting.
