Synopsis for "Aftermath"
Supergirl gets into a fight with Clayface and hurls him into outer space. Empress arrives to help out and encases Clayface inside a hex bubble. As the battle ends, Empress asks for Supergirl's help. She tells her that her parents were killed and resurrected as children. Currently, they are being held hostage by a man named Eddie Rose. Supergirl agrees to help, and together they fly to Rose's mansion. Rose reveals that he is a survivor of Superman's battle against Doomsday, and now wishes to turn public opinion against all super-heroes, including Supergirl. He has forced Empress to bait Supergirl to his mansion and now has her use her magic to affect Supergirl's mind. Supergirl resists the affect and breaks free of Empress's control. Realizing that Empress didn't have a choice about attacking her, Supergirl forgives her and the two team-up to take down Rose.
