Synopsis for "Codename: Patriot, Part 3"
Ral-Dar is being held prisoner when he overhears General Lane talking about how he's outlived his usefulness and New Krypton will be destroyed after the President signs off on the Markovian War Treaty. He snaps and breaks out, which is just what General Lane wanted him to do.
On the Science Police's HQ, Superman and Lois Lane go back to the meeting. Kara wants to talk to Lois privately, but Lois just gives her a nasty look. News arrive that Ral-Dar has been spotted heading towards Markovia. Superman is ready to take Supergirl and Mon-El with him and head off, but they're informed Flambird is wreaking havoc on Los Angeles. Superman wants to send Kara to deal with her while he goes after Ral-Dar, but Lois objects that Supergirl shouldn't go alone after what happened with Superwoman. Superman relents and decides to send Mon-El with Kara even though it hurts his cousin that her family doesn't trust her.
On the Daily Planet, Catherine Grant chases after Perry White to get him publish a new anti-Supergirl article. Perry just replies he can't run her stories on the front page since she hasn't got hard evidence or facts to report.
Supergirl and Mon-El are arriving on Los Angeles. Supergirl tells Mon-El she and Thara used to be all but sisters, and her parents actually took Thara in when she was orphaned, but their friendship was over after Zor-El's murder, which Kara suspects Thara is implicated in. Even so, Kara intends to help Thara... or hit her hard.
The duo spots Flamebird and Kara goes to talk to Thara by herself first, but Thara takes off. Mon-El stays behind when Nightwing shows up out of nowhere and slugs him.
Elsewere Mon-El hears Supergirl screaming. All of sudden, Flamebird flies by Mon-El, grabs Nightwing, and says they have to leave. Then Kara flies by and tells Mon-El that she knows her plans now and they have to head back to Metropolis quickly.
On Metropolis, Cat Grant is reached by a Morgan Edge's representative who wants to get Cat showing up on his show.
On the Daily Planet, Lois Lane tells Perry White she has the feeling something big and very bad is about to happen.
At the same time, Superman flies over the Atlantic to find Ral-Dar, who is unaware that the so-called "Treaty of War" is a free trade agreement.
"Nightwing" and "Flamebird" streak towards Metropolis, chased by Supergirl and Mon-El... who hasn't realized Supergirl is in reality Mirabai in disguise.
