Synopsis for "Acceptance"
While contemplating her life, Supergirl takes notice of a skirmish in downtown Metropolis. Livewire is tearing up the streets in the hopes of having a confrontation with Superman. Supergirl flies down, tears open a water line and aims it at Livewire, knocking her out.
She then has a brief conversation with Batman, but is still trying to come to terms with her Kryptonian heritage. She knows that her cousin Superman was educated on Kryptonian culture by way of the Sunstone crystals that his father Jor-El left to him. She flies off to Antarctica to unearth her own Kryptonian vessel, in the hopes that her own father may have left a similar legacy for her.
Finding nothing, she then goes to the Fortress of Solitude and activates one of the many Sunstone crystals. A holographic image of Jor-El appears and begins speaking. His words are intended for Kal-El, but he mentions how Kara will be the last one to maintain any real memories of the planet Krypton.
Kara then uses the portal access device she recently acquired from a Green Lantern and opens an aperture to the place where Krypton used to be. She stares into the emptiness of space, longing to find something familiar.
