A firetruck is stuck in the middle of the street with its sirens blazing. It is the afternoon rush hour, and traffic is at a standstill. Cars are pulling over to the side, but they are doing so slowly, and the firetruck is reduced to moving at only a couple of miles an hour.
“Come on!” the driver yells, slamming his horn in addition to his siren. “Move it!”
“Easy, Larry.” one of the other firefighters tells him.
“The fire'll have burned itself out by the time we get there.” Larry says irritably.
“Why did we take the side streets?” a third firefighter asks exasperatedly.
“Because it's on one of those damn dead end streets.” Larry complains.
“Looks like you boys could use a lift.” a female voice says.
Larry looks out of his side window. His eyes widen and he turns to his partners. “Better strap in, boys.” he tells them.
The firetruck suddenly rises into the air. The camera then follows the point of view of the truck looking down to shows people start getting out of their cars to look and point at the now flying emergency vehicle.
The camera finally shows Supergirl carrying the truck over over her head. She shows no signs of being strained as she flies the firetruck over all of the traffic.
Fade into the opening credits.
Sylvia comes up to the stairs and calls out “Linda!”
Linda appears at the top of the stairs and jumps on the staircase railing. She is wearing a purple helmet and knee pads and is carrying a purple skateboard embroidered with many stickers (just like the one she has in the comics). She slides down the railing and lands in front of her mother.
“Whoa.” Sylvia says. “Somebody's excited.”
“Don't do that.” Fred says from the couch where he is watching the television. “It's dangerous.”
“Hey, I'm dressed for safety.” Linda says as she playfully knocks on her helmet twice.
Fred shakes his head and asks “Help me out here, Syl.”
“Your father's right.” Sylvia says in an amused tone that shows that she isn't as concerned as Fred is. She hands Linda her lunch and a piece of toast for breakfast. Linda kisses her on the cheek and goes into the living room.
Linda holds the piece of toast in her mouth as she gets her school-things together. She sees that Fred is watching the news, and stops to listen to the anchor for a few seconds.
“In other news, Tropical Storm Herbert, which was expected to weaken before making landfall on the North Carolina and Virginia coasts, has instead strengthened overnight to become a hurricane. Now experts are saying that the storm will likely continue to increase in strength before making landfall this afternoon.”
Linda tries to say “Bye!” with the toast still hanging from her mouth and it comes out garbled. She then runs out the door, leaps onto her skateboard and starts to ride away quickly, still eating the toast.
“Thanks for the support.” Fred says sarcastically.
“I'm just glad to see her having fun.” Sylvia responds.
Mattie is getting out of her car across the street from the school when Linda comes racing down the block. She does an impressive leap with her skateboard before coming to a rolling stop in front of Mattie.
“Damn, girl,” Mattie says, impressed, “you can fly.”
Linda smiles and takes off her helmet. “You don't know the half of it.”
“Hey, listen.” Mattie says. “I'm going to the mall with Talia and Mindy tonight.”
Linda stops paying attention. She sees a red headed boy going up the steps into the school and tells Mattie “Hold that thought.”
Mattie is taken aback as Linda runs across the street. When she sees who Linda is running after, Mattie has a half-smile and rubs her chin thoughtfully.
“Richard! Hey, Richard!” Linda calls out in the school entrance. The boy she was following turns his head and acknowledges her but continues walking to his locker.
“Mornin,' Linda.” he says in a strong southern drawl.
“Did you finish that app yet?” Linda asks.
“Sure.” he replies. “Lemme download it for you.”
Linda hands him her phone and he starts fiddling with it. “I keep telling you to call me Dick.”
“Like I'm going to yell 'Dick' in the hallway.” Linda responds incredulously.
“Y'know,” Dick says, “it would have been simpler to just download a police scanner app. What I did was largely based on one of those.”
“But I don't want to listen to the radio all the time. A text-based alert is easier.”
Dick gives her a knowing grin. “Checking your phone in class? You've gotten paranoid. Can't say I blame you, with everything that happened.” He hands Linda back her phone. “Here. Now you'll get to see every police alert in town.”
“So, what do you do when you're not checking on your cop dad?” Dick asks in a flirting tone.
Linda smiles and holds up her skateboard.
Dick is about to say something when both his and Linda's phones start vibrating.
“Looks like the Supergirl news app I made has a new story.” he observes.
“But I don't have that app.” Linda says, frowning.
They both stare at their phones in surprise.
“It says both the police and the coast guard are looking for Supergirl.” Dick says.
“But our state doesn't even have a coast.” Linda replies.
A terrible storm is occurring at sea, with heavy rain, loud wind, and large, rough waves.
A cargo barge is having a rough time in the storm. On the deck, crew-members are scrambling hectically to regain control. They are wearing heavy rain gear and other heavy items to prevent the wind from knocking them down or overboard, but are still getting drenched.
On the bridge, the first mate is struggling to steer the ship while the captain frantically yells into the vessel's radio.
“The storm's getting worse!” he yells. “We've lost the engine and are approaching a lee shore!”
“Hold on.” the voice on the other side of the radio says. “Help is already on the way.”
“Are you crazy?” the captain creams again. “Who launches a rescue out at sea in the middle of a hurricane?!”
The first mate taps the captain on the shoulder. “What?!” the captain growls angrily.
The first mate points out of the bridge window. Supergirl is floating there. She is soaked from head to toe from the rain. Her hair is blowing completely to one side, and she is holding her cape to prevent it from being blown away.
The captain hurriedly opens the door, and the sound of the storm increases in intensity.
“Tell your men to get inside!” Supergirl yells.
The camera cuts to a shot of the barge at the sea level. It is being rocked from side to side.
Heroic music starts to play, starting softly and building up. Slowly, the rocking stops and the hull is shown rising out of the water. After about ten seconds, the entire ship has been raised out of the sea.
The camera shows Supergirl flying under the ship, holding it over her back. Her cape is now tied in a knot around her waist. The camera then shows a closeup of Supergirl's face. She is breathing hard, occasionally grunts from the effort, and her face is contorted in a combination of concentration and pain.
The camera shows one final shot of the barge being transported through the air.
Elizabeth walks into a cafe. Cutter is already seated at a table and waves her over.
“Thanks for coming.” Cutter says.
Elizabeth sits down. “I have to admit, I'm as curious about you as you are about me.”
“And why's that?” Cutter asks.
“How is it that you keep on getting these stories about Supergirl?”
Cutter shrugs. “I lucked into it. I think I'm the only reporter she knows at this point.”
A waitress comes up to their table. Elizabeth asks for a cappuccino while Cutter orders a sandwich.
“Is that all?” Elizabeth asks when the waitress leaves.
“I'm as surprised as anyone.” Cutter admits. “A month ago I was a two-bit reporter who covered fluff pieces. Now I'm 'Mr. Supergirl.'”
“'Mr. Supergirl?'” Elizabeth asks, amused.
The waitress returns with the coffee. “Thank you.” Elizabeth tells her.
Elizabeth takes a sip of her coffee and turns back to Cutter. “You sound like you're married.”
Cutter shakes his head. “Don't get my hopes up.” He takes out a small recording device and puts it on the table. “Now, onto the matter at hand: you relationship with Supergirl. How do you know each other?”
Mattie sits down in class as the teacher starts taking attendance. She worriedly looks at Linda's empty seat.
“Coughlan.” the teacher says disinterestedly. The student raises his hand and says “Present.” The teacher then says “Danvers.”
Mattie again looks at Linda's seat. The teacher doesn't even bother to look and instead robotically moves on to the next name.
Elizabeth comes through the door of her apartment.
“Elizabeth...” a voice calls out weakly. She turns in shock to see Supergirl hunched over the couch in pain, holding onto the couch in one hand and clutching her back with her other hand.
“Oh my god.” Elizabeth runs over to Supergirl and puts her arm around her. “Are you all right? What happened?”
“I...” Supergirl says weakly as Elizabeth lays her down on the couch, “I was carrying...this barge...out of the hurricane...and now my back...”
“Easy.” Elizabeth assures her. “I'll get some ice.”
“Thank you.” Supergirl takes a deep breath. “I didn't know where else to go.”
“I thought you were making friends here.” Elizabeth calls out from the kitchen.
“Not like that.”
“And I doubt any hospital can help you anyway.” Elizabeth comes back with a large bag of ice. “They don't teach how to treat bulletproof people in medical school.” She lifts up Supergirl's cape and puts the ice on her back.
“Ahhh.” Supergirl moans.
“So you do feel cold.” Elizabeth observes.
“A little.” Supergirl admits.
“I don't know what else to do. There's a little Tylenol. Do you respond to painkillers?”
As Elizabeth goes to get the Tylenol, Supergirl remarks “I guess I've finally found my limits. A barge with almost no cargo.”
“Not necessarily.” Elizabeth says as she comes back. She gives Supergirl two pills and a glass of water. “Have you ever learned how to lift things properly?”
“There's a proper way to lift things?” Supergirl asks befor swallowing the pills.
“Of course. People hurt themselves all the time because they don't know how to pick up heavy objects the right way. I guess you never had to learn that because nothing was ever heavy to you until now.”
“Yeah.” Supergirl agrees. “It never occurred to anyone that it might have been difficult. The Coast Guard just assumed I could carry the barge as a matter of coarse.”
“You carried a barge out of a hurricane.” Elizabeth says in awe. “That's amazing. I never even imagined you had that kind of strength.”
“I don't really think about it.” Supergirl says. “My biggest challenge trying to hold back so I don't break things. How long until the medicine is supposed to work?”
“Depends.” Elizabeth says. “By the way, I just got back from an interview with 'Mister Supergirl.'” Supergirl gives her a confused look. “Wendell Sharpe.”
“Oh.” Supergirl says. “What did you tell him?”
“The truth. That my car nearly hit you on the highway. That you were a confused and innocent soul when we met, and that you were as surprised as I was when you discovered you could fly and lift cars like they were toys.”
“You didn't say anything about where I come from?”
“I can't tell anyone what I don't know.” Elizabeth replies. “I said I assumed the way you got your powers was something traumatic like being experimented on or being in a freak accident, but it's not like you told me.”
Supergirl looks up at the ceiling. “There's still a lot I wish there was someone to tell me.”
Mattie hurries out of class as the bell rings. She spots Dick Malverne getting out of a different classroom and runs over to him.
“Hi, Mattie.” Dick says. “Y'know, you're the second girl today who's avoided saying 'Hey, Dick' in the halls.”
“The first being Linda I presume.” Mattie concludes.
“Last time I saw Lin' she was with you.” Mattie says. “D'you know where she's been all day?”
“No idea.” Dick responds.
“What were you two talking about?” Mattie asks.
“She wanted me to make her an app she could use to be sure her dad is safe while he's on duty.”
“Hmm.” Mattie says. “I didn't realize she was so worried about him.”
“Being kidnapped can change your priorities.” Dick replies.
“I guess. So what did you charge her?”
“What d'you mean?” Dick asks.
“For the app. You asked for a pretty big amount before making that Supergirl tracking app.”
“That was different.” Dick says defensively.
“You didn't ask for anything this one time?” Mattie's half-smile from earlier returns.
“Oh, come on!” Dick insists. “There's a big difference between what Linda wanted and tracking a superhero!”
“Sure.” Mattie says sarcastically. “I believe-”
Before Mattie can finish her sentence, there is a loud BOOM and the floor shakes. Mattie almost falls and Dick catches her. The fire alarm starts blaring, and students begin screaming and running towards the exits.
Supergirl is now sitting up on Elizabeth's couch, but she is still holding the ice to her back.
“You should take it easy for a while.” Elizabeth instructs her. “Try to avoid any strenuous activities until you heal.”
“It's a good thing I heal fast then.” Supergirl replies.
Elizabeth is taken aback. “How would you even know that?”
“I saved Cutter Sharpe from a demon with powers like mine. It could have killed me.”
Elizabeth takes a deep breath and sits down on the couch next to her. “A demon. I didn't want to believe those stories.”
“I still don't.” Supergirl says. “But there's some real craziness in this town.”
There is a pregnant pause in the conversation before Supergirl speaks again. “Speaking of which, can I borrow your phone for a minute?”
Elizabeth nods and reaches into her purse. “Is this a call to a friend?”
“No. Just checking something.”
Elizabeth gives Supergirl her phone, and Supergirl checks the app Dick made for her. Her eyes widen and she mutters “Oh, crud.”
Elizabeth begins to ask “Wh-” when Supergirl disappears in a burst of wind. Elizabeth's hair is blown around and she is forced to move some of it out of her face. She sees her phone lying next to her on the couch.
Supergirl flies towards her school. Students are streaming out of the building, but there are no emergency vehicles or police on the scene yet. Smoke is coming out of a large hole in one of the walls. Supergirl flies into the hole.
There is a fire in the classroom. Supergirl coughs from the smoke. She then holds her cape over her mouth so she can breathe better.
She opens the classroom door and enters the hallway. The fire hasn't spread out of the classroom yet. She finds a fire extinguisher on the wall and takes it back to the classroom.
Suddenly, Supergirl is struck in the back and falls over. She looks up at her attacker and is horrified to see a werewolf standing over her, holding a smashed computer monitor over its head. It stands seven feet tall, and is twice as wide as a normal person. It has dark brown fur, a long snout, and huge teeth.
The werewolf tosses the monitor and lunges for her neck. Supergirl blocks with her arm, and the werewolf bites her forearm. Supergirl yells in pain, but her skin is not pierced by the werewolf's teeth.
Supergirl throws the werewolf into the wall with her free hand. The werewolf is winded but mostly unharmed. Supergirl rises, clutching her back again.
While she is facing the werewolf, Supergirl is again attacked from behind. She is zapped by electricity and goes down again.
A greenish demon, much thinner than the werewolf, stands over her. It raises its hand, the fingertips sparking with electricity, and lets out a high pitched cackle as it grabs her back, electrocuting her again.
Supergirl screams in pain as the electrocution continues. The camera shows her point of view. She sees the the werewolf rising as her vision blurs. A bright light envelops her vision right as she loses consciousness. The screen goes black.
Police and firefighters finally arrive at the school. Fred is among them. He approaches the school principal. “What's the situation.”
“An explosion and a fire.” the principal says. “Some students say they saw monsters.”
“Monsters.” Fred repeats under his breath. “Great.”
Another cop calls Fred over. He calls back “I'll be right there, Mitchell!” Before Fred leaves he tells the principal to “Keep an eye on my daughter.”
An ambulance then pulls up. One of the people who get out of it is PJ. Unlike the others he does not get out his medical equipment but heads towards the the crowd of students. Mattie runs out of the crowd and into his arms.
“You all right?” PJ asks. Mattie nods. “Lets get out of here.” he tells her.
As they head towards Mattie's car, she looks at Fred consulting with the other policemen.
At that moment, the crowd around the school screams as the monsters who fought Supergirl burst through the front door. They run straight at the cop cars. The green demon leaps over them, while the werewolf lands on top of one of the cars, crushing the vehicle with its weight.
Several cops, including Fred, take out their guns and fire at the monsters, but they are moving very fast and the shots miss. The monsters disappear behind the houses down the block.
Supergirl opens her eyes. She is lying on a hard, rocky surface.
“Uhhh.” she groans. “I feel like hell.”
“Well,” a deep voice responds, “you are certainly in the right place.”
Supergirl lifts her head and sees Lord Satanus sitting on his throne. She opens her mouth to scream but no sound comes out. She crawls back several paces.
“It is an honor to meet you, Blue Angel. I am Lord Satanus.”
Supergirl looks around, seeing the fire and lava that make of Satanus' realm. “W-where am I?”
“Safe, for the moment.” Satanus assures her. “We have a mutual enemy, Linda.”
Supergirl stands up, but is still shaking. “H-how did you...”
“That is not your concern.” Satanus interrupts her. “What should concern you is Buzz.”
“Those monsters were his?” Supergirl asks.
“He is obsessed with destroying you, enough to risk my wrath.”
Satanus ignores her question. “I have a product I sell to select individuals, a Demon Drug. It transforms the user into a powerful demon temporarily. Buzz killed one of my dealers and stole his supply. How he is spreading it around Leesburg's underbelly.”
“You made the stuff that made those monsters?” Supergirl demands angrily. “They attacked my school!”
“They go to your school.” Satanus says ominously. “Buzz presented them with the ultimate thrill and the ultimate high. He has been watching you, waiting for a moment of weakness to strike. He told them your back was your weak point. You'd be his now if I hadn't pulled you away.”
Supergirl rubs her forehead. “What am I supposed to do? He can destroy the town with that drug.”
“You're a guardian angel.” Satanus says angrily. “Protect them!” He extends his wooden trident at her, and she is again enveloped in a white light. She covers her eyes.
When Supergirl opens her eyes, she is back in the school. After a second, she reaches for her back in surprise.
“I'm healed.” she says to herself.
That night, Linda, Fred, and Sylvia are all home. Linda is sitting in the living room. Sylvia is standing behind her and rubbing her daughter's shoulders nervously.
“I've gotta get back to the station.” Fred says guiltily. “They need all hands on deck for this one.”
Sylvia nods and Linda doesn't react. Fred gets his things together and turns to leave.
“Dad...” Linda says as he starts to open the door. He turns back to her. “Be careful.”
Fred smiles at Linda and leaves.
There is an uncomfortable silence as Linda and Sylvia are left alone. Linda puts her hand on her mother's and says “I'm gonna go downstairs to work. I need to do something.”
“Ok.” Sylvia says. “Do you want dinner first?”
“No, I'm not hungry.”
As Linda heads, towards the basement Sylvia asks “Your fathers out there going after whatever those things are, you're sculpting. What am I supposed to do.”
Linda sighs sadly. “Pray, Mom. Pray that Dad comes home safely.”
“You incompetent wankers!” Buzz yells at two teenage boys. “I offer you a lifetime supply of DMN if you can do one incy-wincy job for me, and what do I get? NOTHING! That's what!”
“B-but Mr. Buzz...” one of the kids starts to beg.
Buzz holds up a finger. “Don't interrupt me when I'm talking.” He shakes his head and mutters “What did I expect from people people desperate enough to take this stuff.”
“It wasn't our fault!”
Buzz walks over to a long, empty table and gesture dramatically. “What I wanted was Supergirl here, on this table. Now, I wouldn't have been surprised if she beat you, but I am very shocked that you returned empty handed.” He moves back to the boys and gets in their faces, causing them to cower. “So tell me, if she isn't here, why are you here and not in jail?”
The other boy stammers “T-t-there w-was a l-light and sh-she d-d-disappeared.”
“Oh.” Buzz backs away. He seems calmer, but he says “Well, damn.”
Buzz jumps on the table and calls out to all of the people gathered there. “It's your lucky night, boys! Everyone gets free samples!”
There is cheering throughout the room. Buzz's tone shifts to one of deep venom.
“All you have to do is kill anyone that tries to get in here.”
There is a lot of activity at the police station. Officers are rushing back and forth. Others are busy on the phones. Others still are busy going over the evidence.
Fred is sitting at his desk reading witness statements while drinking a coffee. When he tries to take a sip he notices that his cup is empty and gets up to pour himself a new one.
He passes by Officer Mitchell, whose skin has gone pale and who is sweating profusely. “You ok?” Fred asks.
“No. I am not ok.” Mitchell responds. “You saw those things? How can you be so calm?”
“I'm not.” Fred answers. “I'm scared, terrified even. But I'm mostly angry.” He glares. “Those things attacked my daughter's school. And I'm going to do whatever it takes to make sure they don't get the chance to do it again.”
“You can count on me, Fred.” Mitchell assures him. “I'm not gonna hesitate.”
The room suddenly becomes silent, and they turn to see that Supergirl has arrived.
Fred almost laughs as she comes up to him. “Are we ever glad to see you. Do you know about this case? Monsters at a school?”
Supergirl nods. “I might know where to find those monsters, but I'll need your help.”
“Thank god.” Fred says. “We don't have any leads. What've you got?”
“I have reason to believe it may be drug related.” Supergirl says. “I need to know where are the major places for selling drugs in town.”
“That's an...interesting theory.” Fred says skeptically. “What makes you think these monsters have anything to do with drugs?”
“Trust me.” Supergirl says with a shudder. “You really don't want to know.”
“I may have something.” one officer says from across the room. “I've got an informant who was telling me something about a demon wonder drug the other day. I thought he was high at the time at dismissed it, but maybe he was serious.”
“Get back in contact with him.” Fred orders. “Find out where this demon wonder drug is being sold.”
Supergirl grabs Fred's arm. “When you find out where they are, leave it to me.”
“We can't do that.” Fred says. “We couldn't call ourselves cops if we ran away from a threat like this.”
“These things are powerful.” Supergirl insists. “And their leader is that same lunatic sorcerer that kidnapped your daughter. He's more dangerous than you can imagine.”
Fred clenches his jaw. “If you wanted to convince me to go home, that was the wrong thing to say.”
Supergirl closes her eyes in frustration. “You make sure to armor up.”
Mattie and PJ are sitting down to dinner in their apartment when PJ's phone rings. He picks it up and says “Hello?”
The camera shows Fred getting suited up in the police station while holding his phone between his head and his shoulders. “Hi, PJ.”
The camera shifts back to whoever is speaking at the moment. “Fred?” PJ asks. “What's up?”
“How's Mattie doing?” Fred asks.
“As well as can be expected.” PJ answers. “How about Linda?”
“The same.” Fred says. “She seems more worried about me, actually.”
“Does she have reason to be?” Fred doesn't answer. “Fred.”
“We think we know where to find the monsters who attacked the school.”
“That's...good...right?” PJ asks tentatively.
“It's better than letting them run free. You can tell your sister that she won't have to worry about those things anymore.”
“Are you going to tell your wife the same thing?”
“No. She and Linda'll just become more worried. You no what they say about 'no news.'”
“Look, PJ,” Fred says seriously, “I want to thank you for all your help recently. I don't know what we'd have done without you.”
“Don't mention it.” PJ says softly. Fred hangs up, and PJ looks very worried.
Sylvia is sitting on her couch, trying to read from a copy of the Book of Psalms. But the verses get stuck in her throat.
She closes the book and looks up.
“Look, God? I know I don't thank you enough for bringing my baby home. You made a miracle for us, and I'll always be grateful.
“I guess I thought the hard times were over, that we were all going to live happily ever after. I see now that that was a false hope. I know everything you do is for the good, but I still wish you would give us a break.
“Please, god, you just gave me back my daughter. Don't take away my husband now. Don't make my child an orphan. We've been through so much already.
Sylvia starts to cry. “And please stop putting my baby in danger. I know everything you do is good, but for the life of me, I don't see the good in what Linda is being put through.
Supergirl and the police have gathered in front of a block of old and dingy stores. The street is in a seedy part of the town and is not well lit. The police are fully armored and carrying semi-automatic weapons.
“We know that the perps are in the basement.” Fred tells the squad. “They are considered armed and dangerous. If you see anything inside that looks like a monster, shoot to kill. Supergirl will be taking point. Follow her lead.”
Fred then goes up to Officer Mitchell, who is breathing heavily and clutching his gun tightly. “Look, maybe you should go home.”
Mitchell takes a deep breath to calm himself. “I'm ok. I can do this.”
“I don't think you can.” Fred says. “You go in like this you're gonna get yourself killed, and maybe some of us as well.”
“Maybe I can stand guard outside.” Mitchell suggests. “In case they come out.”
Fred thinks for a moment. “All right. You can stay with the group guarding the perimeter. But don't shoot at anything that comes out of the cellar unless you're sure it isn't human.”
Mitchell nods. “Yeah. Ok. Got it.”
Fred goes back to Supergirl and says “We're ready.”
Supergirl is worried. “I still wish you'd just let me handle it.”
“It's our job.” Fred says with finality.
Supergirl looks sullen as she leads the police to the cellar entrance. She rips it open and drops in.
As the police slowly follow her Supergirl sees a door. She kicks it down and stares into the room Buzz had used to interrogate the teenagers earlier. Buzz himself is standing in the back of the room. In front of him are about a dozen demons of various shapes, sizes, and colors.
Buzz speaks softly. “Kill them all.”
The room erupts in chaos as the demons charge at Supergirl and the police start to open fire. Supergirl punches the first demon in the face hard enough to knock it out.
Buzz observes Supergirl's movements. “Fully recovered. Bloody hell.”
The bullets pierce the demons' skin, but do not do enough damage to bring them down. One demon opens its mouth and shoots a fireball into Supergirl's face. She shakes the hit off and headbutts the demon, knocking that one out as well.
One of the policemen is picked up by a demon, which shakes him around violently. Fred shoots that demon in the arm, causing it to drop the cop.
Supergirl sees the green demon that electrocuted her earlier rush at Fred with its hand outstretched and sparking. Her eyes show panic as she rushes forward and grabs the demon's arm just before it can grab Fred's face. Her face contorts in rage as she jerks her forearm, breaking the demon's arm with her motion. She knees the demon and lets its limp form fall to the ground.
The the most dangerous demons taken care of, the cops start doing some real damage to the remainder. Supergirl turns her attention to Buzz and walks towards him, knocking out two more demons along the way.
Buzz turns tail and runs through a back door. Supergirl follows him through a narrow hallway. She uses her super-speed to appear in front of him. She grabs the front of his trench coat and lifts him up.
“Got you, you freak.”
Buzz laughs. “You're calling me a freak? I know what I am and embrace it.” He leers at her. “You're just a golem pretending to be a real girl.”
“Shut up!” Supergirl hisses.
“What are you gonna do if I don't, luv?” Buzz sneers. “Snap my neck?”
“I'm tempted to.” Supergirl warns.
“By all means.” Buzz continues to taunt her. “I'd love to see you try.”
Buzz arcs his head back. “Say, did it get quiet back there?” Sure enough, the sounds of the fight have stopped. “Guess the fight's over. I gotta admit, I didn't think you'd abandon dear old dad like that, but then again, you aren't his real daughter.”
Supergirl roars and slams him into the wall, causing it to crack.
Buzz grunts in pain, but his smile only grows. “Why so defensive? You know it's true. You wanted to be human, so you stole an innocent girl's life.”
“No.” Supergirl's voice breaks, and she sounds like she's begging. “That's not true.”
“You call me a freak.” Buzz declares seriously. “You call me a monster. But the truth is, you're the worst monster I've ever seen, and believe me, I've seen plenty.”
Supergirl struggles to hold back tears. “Why are you doing this?”
The sound of a gunshot distracts Supergirl, and Buzz slips out of his coat and around her.
“Guess the fight wasn't as over as we thought, huh?”
Supergirl reaches for him, but Buzz throws out his arms and causes a cloud of smoke to envelop him. When Supergirl reaches through the smoke he is gone.
But his voice continues to echo in her head.
“You win this round, luv. But remember, if anything happened to dear old dad, it's your fault.”
Supergirl races back into the large room, where the police have everything in hand. A few have minor injuries, but nothing serious. The demons are down, and some of them have started to turn back into humans. Fred is inspecting the boxes of drugs.
“It's funny. This stuff doesn't look any more dangerous than pot.” Fred tells her. “As evidence it might prove useful. But it's probably safer to destroy it.”
Supergirl nods in agreement. “I heard a gunshot.”
“That came from outside.” Fred says. “Lopez went to check, but the rest of stayed here in case these monsters wake up.” Fred slumps and sits down. “God, I hope everything's all right up there. I can't take any more of this.”
Supergirl flies out through the cellar door, where several officers are standing over a body lying on the street.
Officer Mitchell stands behind them, shaking. His gun lies at his feet.
“He-he looked like-like one of-of them.” he stammers. I sw-swear he was....and then...then...he wasn't...”
“Nonono!” Supergirl yells, flying over the officers' heads to look at the victim. Her eyes go as wide as they can and her mouth drops in horror at who she sees.
PJ is lying unconscious on the ground, bleeding from a bullet wound to the torso.
Fade into the closing credits.
