Synopsis for "The Hunt for Reactron, Conclusion"
Reactron is choking Supergirl until Chris realizes red sunlight doesn't affect his tactile telekinesis. Chris and Thara break out and rescue Kara, and the three heroes come up with a strategy to take him down: Thara will go high, Chris will go low, and Kara will kick his butt up the middle. Supergirl, Flamebird and Nightwing charge him.
Unfortunately, Reactron is still too powerful. He manages to take Thara down and depower and knock out Kara and Chris. During the battle, Lois shows up to witness and report the fight. He threatens Lois and she actually manages to hurt him, but she cannot stop him.
Right when it looks like he's going to murder to Kara and Chris, Thara transforms into Flamebird and crushes Reactron like a bug, yanking the Gold Kryptonite from the chest of Reactron and disintegrating it.
As soon as he is helpless, Reactron sings like a canary, explaining all is General Lane fault as Kara, Lois and Chris look on. Flamebird wants to kill him right there, but Supergirl talks her out of it, saying her father Zor-El wants justice, not vengeance. Chris then kisses Flamebird, which turns her back into Thara.
Reactron is srunk and imprisoned in a crystal which Kara intends to take to New Krypton.
Before leaving, though, Kara and Thara have a heart-to-heart talk where they forgive each other and restart their friendship. Kara apologizes for not believing Thara was Flamebird. She also thinks if Flamebird is real, so is Rao, and it means their father may be "in a better place".
Thara then says she has to tell Kara something about Lana. Lana walks in to a distraught looking Kara. Lana asks if everything's okay, and Kara says it is, though the look on her face is one of mistrust or suspicion.
Thara leaves and Kara says she has to go to New Krypton (to deliver Reactron), but will return to talk to Lana about what she's been hiding from her.
