Supergirl - Fort Rozz

It's a girls night out, of sorts, when Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) enlists the help of Saturn Girl (Amy Jackson), Live Wire (Brit Morgan), and Psi (Yael Grobglas) to investigate the floating remains of Fort Rozz which is now (conveniently) orbiting a star which will not only drain Kara of her powers but also prevents any non-female support from taking part in the mission. If the team can keep it together long enough, their mission is to find the High Priestess (Sarah Douglas) who knows all about Reign (Odette Annable) and what is to come. Neither a solar flare which puts the ship off-course nor the sudden arrival of Reign hardly help matters. There's also Psi's attack on Imra which is initially shrugged off but seems to foreshadow possible trouble ahead.

Even if Supergirl loses a friend and gets her butt kicked by Reign again, the trip proves to be helpful as it alerts the Girl of Steel to the existence of other world killers who are part of Reign's rise... the first of which we get a sneak-peak of in the episode's final scene. The episode's B-story throws together an injured Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Ruby (Emma Tremblay) which proves to be more than just filler and cracks open the door to revealing the secret of Sam's dual-personality by making her aware of her blackouts.
