j'onn doesn’t want her on the cadmus case because he thinks she’s too close to it emotionally to act rationally, so she sneaks in and jams all the supplies she can into an old backpack. and j'onn kind of knows something’s going on, because alex is doing everything she can to block him out of her mind, but maggie assures him that she’s handling it.
but maggie is working with alex on this case, helping her bring down the organization that took her father away from her and caused her so much pain. they follow the still-active tracker winn planted on jeremiah to a remote location two days travel west of national city. they take their bikes and only stop once to rest up.
j'onn understands what’s happening immediately after alex doesn’t show up for work, and when maggie and alex arrive, kara is waiting for them (on j'onn’s orders). alex gets ready for an argument, but jeremiah’s betrayal had been hard on kara, too, and she joins them.
and in the end, cadmus’ members are scattered (or dead, mostly dead) and lillian luthor is being held at gunpoint by maggie sawyer while alex handcuffs her father with the nonterrestrial-resistant cuffs lena had sent when she learned about their plan.
and that’s how cadmus is destroyed; not by an army, but by a cop, an alien, and a heartbroken daughter.
my girlfriend and i have been trying to get jobs for the last few months and now that my foot is broken and won’t be able to walk on it for another month getting a job isn’t even an option at the moment
bc of that we’re struggling to provide for ourselves and it’s really tiring and stressful for the both of us so if y'all could send a dollar or something to my girlfriends venmo/paypal (both @linime) it would help so so much
