Act I Summary: Kara adjusts to being temporarily powerless after her run-in with Zatanna, with a lot of help from Alex. Cat, still shaken from Kara’s kidnapping, shuts herself off from the world.
Kara woke to the steady sound of beeping.
It took far longer than it should have to realize it matched the rhythm of her heart thudding quietly in her chest.
She remembered Maggie coming to her rescue but not much else, and part of her wondered whether the detective might have taken her somewhere other than the DEO.
The thin sheets that covered her felt rough against her skin, the sharp, sterile smell of antiseptic heavy in the air. It was a scent she recognized well, and her whole body relaxed when she opened her eyes to the medical bay she’d wound up in more times than she could count since coming out as Supergirl.
This time felt different, though. She couldn’t pinpoint why, until her sister’s voice nearly made her jump out of her skin.
“You’re awake.” The heart monitor beeped wildly for several long seconds, and Alex shot her a tired smile when Kara turned to see her, settled on a hard plastic chair at her bedside.
