Supergirl - The Wrath of Rama Khan

In the final episode before the Crisis, Kara (Melissa Benoist) must deal with Lena's (Katie McGrath) betrayal and plans to launch Myriad and also stop Rama Khan (Mitch Pileggi) from igniting a dormant super volcano and destroying the world. Several of this season's themes are put into play here, some of which are wrapped up and others which will continue after the crossover, but it's the series' core belief that anyone can be saved that plays a crucial role in ending Lena's first (although not likely her last) attempt to bend humanity's wills to a less-violent future.

Defeating Rama Khan with the help of J'onn (David Harewood) means Leviathan will be under new management after the crossover, with new tactics at play. As for Lena, the existence of Hope (Andrea Brooks) allows for a nice get-out-of-jail card for Lena. Alex's (Chyler Leigh) decision to trust both Kara and Malefic and not blast the Luthor bunker also means Lena will likely return to the drawing board and be back with more insidious schemes later this season. And, in a pre-Crisis preview, the show drops a bombshell that Lena's brother is still alive and kicking, and enlisted by the Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) cause to help the coming battle. While Lex (Jon Cryer) appears ready to help, he does seem to have some conditions where Lena is concerned.
