Synopsis for "Big Girl Small World"
Later she and Wonder Girl visited the place where Paradise Island used to be before being transported off world. Kara and Cassandra reflected upon their past experiences on Themyscira and hugged each other, talking about how much they missed their Amazon sisters.
Kara also dropped by the Kent Farm to visit her uncle and aunt. She checked Conner's bedroom on impulse, and as talking to Martha, Kara borrowed one of his shirts. Kara wondered why her cousin didn't invite her to live with the Kents, but Martha just didn't know.
Later Kara decided she no longer wished to live off of the charity of Wonder Woman and Batman, so she offered the latter a Kryptonian device for one million dollars. Batman remarked Kara has been avoiding her cousin for months and he's worried about her. Kara ensured she was working on her issues, but feeling upset, she decided to leave. Batman stopped her, agreeing to buy the device. Grateful, Kara kissed his cheek.
In the present, Kara is saying goodbye to her date, Captain Boomerang, when her super-senses warn her about an emergency. Explaining she's doing things her way but she hasn't quit her hero duties, Kara abruptly bolts out and saves a little girl from being run over by a truck.
Kara returns home. Later Cassandra stops by, needing a place to stay overnight after a fight with her mother. Kara ushers her in, and Cassandra starts crying over everything. Trying to assuage her pain, Kara gives Cassandra the Kon's shirt and hugs her friend, stating whatever happens, they'll figure it out.
