Kara is on Earth 1, helping Barry with another crisis, and there’s a lull in their mission. It’s night time, everyone is resting except Kara because she has too much energy and too much on her mind.
There’s a telescope in this lab. Kara remembers Barry boasting about how advance it is, the latest technology, able to take images of stars even hundreds of millions of light years away.
On a whim Kara puts in the coordinates for Krypton, a habit from when she had first arrived on her Earth and she was desperate for a home she couldn’t go back to. It takes a minute for the telescope to readjust and find the right spot in the sky.
Kara stares at the screen unblinking, her heart shattering in her chest and her breath leaves her body, and she finally understands why this Earth has never had a Superman.
Because Krypton is whole; shining bright, and beautiful,
I don’t want to be swept off my feet. My god, I want someone to collide with me. I want to be knocked off my feet, to be under their weight and be engulfed by everything they are. I want to be look up into their eyes that make the sky its greatest enemy, rivalling its beauty. I want the breath to leave my lungs in the most suffocating way and when I breathe it back in my skin burns and flowers are sprouting in my collarbones with life that’s never been there. I want to be held so tightly that I can no longer tell where they start and I begin. I want lips to wonder over my neck with no real purpose. I want laughter to be the loudest echo ever heard, I want it to reach the rays of the sun and fill a warmth in my heart I didn’t know existed. I want hands to draw patterns into my skin with an ink only I can see. Let the world watch on as I become a poet with no purpose and 1001 feelings.
We often waste an incredible amount of time wanting to be somewhere else, someone else. Our head-space gets clogged with compare, contrast, what if, why can’t, I should. But you’re never getting this time back. You can’t borrow tomorrow. Please don’t save the best for last. The best is all of you, here, where you are, brightly lit and painfully now, in this breath you’re leaving. Each second dies as it is born; every hello must say goodbye; all is fading in the collapsing hallway of a fragile hourglass, a grain at a time. You are here. The best is you, now.
Screenshots from episodes 4 and 5. Things that are important here: the use of the words team and family.
Keith doesn’t want Pidge to leave the team, but he doesn’t specifically mention the team. He mentions people’s families, which is what Pidge was worried about. No doubt he was attempting to make her reconsider by using a word she was inherently interested in and was sensitive to. Others have mentioned before how ironic/nice is is of Keith to say that specifically, considering he’s an orphan and how the reason he wants Pidge to stay is because she, along with the others, are his family now.
It’s actually Shiro who uses the word team. He tells Keith that people can’t be forced into the team, they must want to stay. He’s not talking about family (specifically), but about the team of paladins they have formed.
Then cut to episode 5 and after they’ve dealt with Sendak, it’s Shiro who starts saying he can’t help but feel like Pidge was meant to be part of the team, but won’t stop her if she wants to leave. That’s when Pidge recalls her father’s words that his team was like family. Pidge is the first person to associate the two words, and Keith immediately says “welcome back to the team”, a clear call back to Shiro’s words back in episode 4 about how a team/family can’t be forced.

For the photoshoot, we opened the heavy iron door to a practice room with sneakers piled up on the floor. V hummed as he flung open the door, and Jungkook gently followed after. The tall Rap Monster walked in looking like he was wobbling, along with the rest of the members. Like that, they started to liven up the practice room.
It only took them 5 seconds to look at the shot list. After making a considering expression for 2 seconds, the members started to pose as if they were dancing to the beat of the camera shutter that went off every 0.5 second. When handed one rose for each, they held and posed with the rose in their own individual style.
After a photoshoot with no time to breath, the members had to leave for ‘2016 Asia Artist Awards’ Red Carpet. Right when the last shutter sound ended, they hurriedly greeted everyone and carefully left after the staffs had fixed their styling. V suddenly came back and quietly asked, “The roses are pretty, do you mind if I take one?”
