An all new act of the Supergirl Virtual Season is live!
Tonight’s update: Act 4.
The main door clanged shut and Cat glanced up from her book, curious to see Alex Danvers striding toward her cell. Alex was white as a ghost, setting Cat’s own nerves jangling. “What’s wrong?” Cat demanded, slipping off her glasses. Alex stopped and used her thumbprint to open the door. “Is it Cadmus? Did you find something?”
Getting to her feet as the door swung open, Cat realized Alex was trembling. Worse than Cadmus meant only one thing. “Is it Kara?” If those bastards had struck out at Kara, Cat would go back and kill them herself.
Alex grunted in dismissal. “Did you remember anything else?”
Cat tilted her head, watching the agent shrewdly. “I assume you’re after something in particular.”
Motioning to the bunk, Alex indicated Cat should sit as she began to pace the small confines of the cell.
Cat observed her, noting the dark circles under her makeup. Something was keeping Alex Danvers up at night.
“Has Kara ever talked about our family?”
“She said they died in a fire. I assume they technically did,” Cat added quietly. Knowing what she did now, pieced together with parts of Superman’s lore, more of the story made sense. Each realization weighed on her as she built the whole narrative, and left her all the more stunned Kara was still so optimistic.
“Not her birth parents. My family.”
