Supergirl returned last week for its sixth and final season and while the Superfriends managed to stop Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer), they soon found themselves dealing with another major issue, one unlike anything they've faced before. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) was sent into the Phantom Zone by Lex and with no idea where exactly she was sent, those left behind in National City have to figure out not only how to get her back but how to protect the city in the meantime.
Of course, Supergirl will have her own challenges to face in the Phantom Zone. As we've seen in the preview for the episode, there are things in the Phantom Zone that Supergirl will have to face alone. Back at home, Alex (Chyler Leigh) will struggle with her sister's absence and Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) has to grapple with issues regarding her brother.
