It is the day that Lex has been waiting for. He got his invitation to the Leviathan ship. He doesn’t have to take down Supergirl himself. He can put the job in the hands of gods that are indestructible. Lex has given them the knowledge and the tools they need. He only has to sit back and enjoy the show. Kara texts Alex 911 and assembles the team to rush to her side. Lena is not the threat here. Hopefully there will be time to talk more later about the events and choices that damaged their friendship. There is no time to talk about the past when the future is so uncertain. All the super friends must work together before these element wielding immortals destroy this world. Kara cannot join the fight until the new suit is finished to protect her from the kryptonite that Rama Khan stole from the DEO. Luckily Alex has a new suit and has mastered the Martian weapon that J’onn has given her. Agent Dox cannot sit around and let Lex Luthor hurt his friends. He must get on the Leviathan ship and upload the mortality code before his friends are destroyed. Getting on the ship is the easy part but the ship has a radiation force field protecting it from intruders. Agent Dox will not destroy Leviathan but trap them in a bottle where they will not be able to harm anyone ever again. Agent Dox is determined to finish this mission even if it is the last thing that he ever does. He collapses under the effects of the radiation. J’onn and M’gann use their shape shifting abilities to impersonate Supergirl in the hopes of giving Lena and Kara enough time to make it across town. The rest of the team is battling their hardest. Dreamer continues to have dreams of Brainy. She must fight on. She cannot afford to be distracted right now. Kelly and Alex break into Obsidian's server room. They need to create a backdoor for Supergirl to enter the virtual reality platform. They also need a lead on William. He was chasing down a story about Lex and no one has heard from him since. Kelly finds Eve Tessmacher’s IP address. Maybe if they find her they will find William. When Kara finds out William is in danger she rushes to the scene with no concern for her own safety. Thank goodness Lena is watching her back with a new protective suit. Gemma is angry when three gods fail to take down Supergirl but she has a back up plan. She tells Andrea to harness the power of shadows and assassinate the superhero. Supergirl’s body will be vulnerable as her mind is engaged in the virtual world urging people to end the simulation before it is too late. Before the Goddess of Technology snaps her fingers and kills them all. Lena builds walls around herself when she is hurt. She has to put the past in the past. When they were young Andrea and Lena made a promise to each other. “When you jump I Jump”. Lena has to stand between Andrea and Supergirl now. She doesn’t want Andrea to go down a dark path. She has seen what those consequences can lead to. Yes Kara hurt Lena but in her heart Kara made that choice to keep Lena safe. Now Lena will protect Kara. Lena began her journey this season to do no harm. Now she is taking action to stand between and protect both of her friends. Agent Dox did it. He trapped the bad guys in a bottle. Now he is alone and dying. Lex Luthor had a back up plan for Agent Dox’s moral code. He is going to take down Supergirl and his mother is going to help him. Lena will do all she can to protect Supergirl and her team from the evil geniuses that share her name. Family is more than blood and Supergirl and her team are her family now. This is your eye in the sky the Green Butterfly. Stay safe and have a super summer.
Charles Skaggs & Jesse Jackson discuss “The Web of Fear”, the fifth serial from Doctor Who Season Five in 1968, featuring Patrick Troughton as the Second Doctor, Frazer Hines as Jamie McCrimmon, Deborah Watling as Victoria Waterfield, and the introduction of Nicholas Courtney as Colonel Alastair Lethbridge-Stewart!

Everything is connected. Well almost everything. Our team must split up to find answers. Each of them following their own thread that when woven together will shed some light on what is to come. It seems as if all things are leading back to Lex Luthor. Can the Man of Tomorrow wage war on Gods who have been causing chaos since the dawn of time? One thing seems certain. He is determined to try. When the Sun Eater attempted to consume the center of our solar system the electricity went out. In the prison three inmates were trapped in an elevator. When claustrophobia consumes one of the inmates, Klaus, he turns violent despite the non nocere protocol. What is Lena missing here and how can she repair it? The human brain is a complex organ. When a threat is perceived then the brain evolves and goes into survival mode. The result is a prison riot. Agent Dox is a twelfth level intellect so he knows Lex is hiding things from him. When he removed his inhibitors Brainy learned that to defeat Leviathan he would have to work with and trust Lex. As time goes on Brainy is beginning to have doubts. How much longer can Agent Dox play both sides of the game? Did the Big Brain have nefarious intentions when they gave Brainy the advice to work with Lex? Alex and Kara go to meet Pete an expert in linguistics and iconography. They hope that his knowledge will help them determine where Leviathan will attack next. It becomes immediately apparent that whenever the symbol of Leviathan has surfaced throughout history catastrophic events have followed. Before they can uncover more information Kara is called away and Alex and Pete are chased out by an unknown gunman. William has discovered that the person who recorded Margot Morrison’s maniphesto video was using an image inducer. Maybe it is the mysterious employee who appears to have been working closely with Leviathan while also employed at Obsidian North. Kelly remains nervous about the virtual reality lenses. This is understandable considering Alex and hundreds of other innocent people were stuck in a fantasy world of their own design. Andrea insists that she has personally fixed the problem and the platform is safe. Nothing is going to stop the Worldwide Unity Festival that has been scheduled. If Kelly continues to push she may lose her job and more importantly her access to what is going on inside Obsidian. Lena has pushed the limits of her friendship with Kara. After the events at the Fortress, Supergirl is seeing red every time her name is mentioned. The truth of the matter is that Kara is probably more hurt than angry. Why did her friend believe she was using Myriad to hurt her? Lena jumped to conclusions just when Kara was starting to have hope that their friendship could be repaired. Lex proves to Lena that he has not really changed. He is not the hero the world now perceives him to be. Perhaps she has chosen wrong but it is not to late to ally with the other side. Just because Lex is a monster doesn’t mean she has to be. Lex Luthor discards what he no longer deems useful. Let it go up in flames like the prison. Hopefully Lena makes the decision in time to switch teams before her brother’s mayhem consumes her. What about Brainy? Will Lex dispose of him when he no longer serves a purpose? Nia tells Brainy that he can’t play both sides forever. Dreamer uncovers some secrets as she slumbers. Her vision leads both teams to Oregon. Supergirl and Rama Khan have a battle of Earth shattering consequences. J’onn and M'gann minimize the damage from below using their terraform abilities. Agent Dox shuts out the super friends insisting that Rama Khan be taken to the DEO. The DEO is right where the villain wants to be. Supergirl tries to subdue Rama Khan but the tables are turned. Rama Khan draws all the kryptonite to himself incapacitating the Girl of Steel. The DEO is reduced to a pile of rubble and Rama Khan has escaped. Leviathan now has kryptonite and a stolen weapon from the Fortress of Solitude. Andrea is adamant the Worldwide Unity Festival will take place. The good news is everyone seems safe for now. Lena wants to help defeat Lex and Leviathan. Will Lex’s invitation to the ship be all that he hopes for? What will happen to the citizens of Earth as they converge in a virtual space? Who kidnapped William? One thing I know for sure is that your eye in the sky Green Butterfly will tell you the latest as this story flies to its conclusion.
