Supergirl - Of Two Minds

When first animals and then humans start to show signs of being infected by Pestilence (Angela Zhou), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) butts heads with Saturn Girl (Amy Jackson) over what to do once they find the final world killer. While the Maid of Might believes Pestilence can be reasoned with, the Legionnaire instead wants to end the threat permanently before it grows powerful enough to become the creature that destroys the future. Meanwhile, Lena (Katie McGrath) continues working with Sam (Odette Annable) in attempts to prevent Reign from resurfacing and taking over her body once more.

When both Winn (Jeremy Jordan) and Alex (Chyler Leigh) become infected, and the Legion's cure doesn't stop the spread of the illness, Supergirl, Saturn Girl, and Mon-El confront Pestilence. Although the trio isn't enough to reason with or destroy the threat, they do get enough to improve the cure and buy themselves some more time. Unfortunately for them, with Reign joining her sisters, the world is desperately running out of that very limited commodity.

Despite their arguments, "Of Two Minds" offers some bonding between Kara and Imra and some much-overdue information about the Legionnaire. We also get a new look for Brainiac-5 (Jesse Rath) and some fun interactions between him and various members of the DEO. Kara's discovery of Reign's true identity may have come too late to help Reign, but it unites Lena's research with that of the DEO in the fight against the world killers. And since Supergirl and the Legionnaires haven't been able yet to stop a single world killer, it looks like they could use all the help they can get.
