Synopsis for "Time Heals All Wounds"

Supergirl has a nightmare where she has been buried alive after failing to save Thomas Price. Later Kara and her cousin attend the funeral of Thomas. Superman tries to comfort her, but Supergirl can't accept his death. She declares she will bring him back, no matter what or how long it takes.

Fifty years later, an adult Supergirl is working with the Krallian rangers in order to bring down interplanetary conqueror Dolok. Dolok is in posession of a time-machine device which he uses to go back in time and strike his enemies or try to escape from them. However Supergirl is ready to attack him every he jumps back in time. Eventually she takes him down for good and seizes his time machine. Kara reasons she can't bring Thomas back but she can get his parents see him again.

Supergirl heads to their house only to learn MR. and Mrs. Price have also passed away. Their daughter also says Mrs. Price was sorry for not having been more understanding and grateful to the girl who fought hard to save her son.

Supergirl visits their graves and ponders going back even further in time in the hopes of saving... or finding a cure for Thomas' cancer... or even redoing her whole life and undoing all her mistakes. Ultimately though, she realizes that she cannot manipulate the past. Such abuse of power would make her no better than Dolok.

Supergirl flies away, thinking it's time to move on.
