Synopsis for "Maelstrom, Part 2"
Supergirl and Superman have travelled to an alien planet revolving around a red sun. Superman is dangling from a cliff as Supergirl uses a makeshift spear to fend two giant monsters off, at the same time reminding Kal that it was his idea go camping on an alien world where they are powerless. Fighting bravely, Kara gets rid of a monster and hurts its partner, but she gets thrown off the cliff. Superman catches her, but now both are dangling precariously from a cliff wall, and the last monster is waiting for them going back up.
In the meantime, on Apokolips Maelstrom has been led to the Terrorium arena and is about to fight four genetically-engineered super-soldiers called Gladiortrons as Darkseid, Granny Goodness and DeSaad watch the duel. Maelstrom kills the four warriors, the whole time proclaiming her devotion towards Darkseid. Bored, Darkseid orders she's thrown in the slave pits.
Back on the alien planet, Kal and Kara manage to climb themselves out of danger and scare the injured monster away. After checking in each other, they proceed to climb a hilltop. As climbing their way to the summit, Kara wonders whether they aren't neglecting Earth by spending time away from it. She also wonders how her cousin's identity secret helps to enlighten humanity. She thinks they should use their powers and advanced knowledge to elevate human civilization. Kal answers he's not trying to enlighten humans, and being an advanced civilization didn't save Kryptonians.
Back on Apokolips, Maelstrom toils in the slave pits. Determined to escape, Maelstrom picks a fight with a guard and tries to stage a slave uprising, but her fellow slaves will not follow her, and she's overpowered by more guards and thrown in an isolated cell.
On the alien planet, Kal and Kara have set camp and are having dinner. As they're eating some kind of roasted bird, Supergirl considers to make a salad, but her cousin warns ninety-eight percent of the plants are either poisonous or hallucinogenic. Kara complains about being dragged to a planet where she is depowered and surrounded by hostile beasts and toxic plants, all while her cousin repeats they're perfectly safe. Both cousins argue and Kara storms off.
Kara keeps grumbling about her cousin's actions and attitude until she notices she's ventured too far into the jungle and is surrounded by hostile creatures.
