** The sheer near-perfection of his plan to blackmail Kara. He put a year into the plan, and it shows. Every single base is covered, every possible curveball is anticipated. J'onn's shapeshifting? Saw it coming a mile away. Alex figuring out a clever way to signal help? He's got it covered too. He single-handedly outfoxed two aliens, an exceptional police detective, and an entire federal agency. All they can do is get more and more frustrated as his plan unfolds. He even [[{{Handwave}} somehow]] protected himself from J'onn's telepathy. Recall that J'onn has bested other powerful telepaths in [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind battles in the center of the mind]], one just two episodes ago, and this otherwise ordinary human can keep J'onn out. Forget any Luthor or Wayne. . . ''this guy'' is the most dangerous human being on Planet Earth.

* Brainy turning back into Brainiac-5 due to the Children of Liberty torturing him is sad and slightly horrifying. But him effortlessly killing them all, including dodging a bullet from point-blank range ''without looking?'' Awesome.
-->'''Brainiac:''' In short, you rebooted me. Aligned me with my more emotionless ancestors. And that was a ''calamitous'' mistake.



* Alex, who had her memories of Kara being Supergirl wiped by J'onn, sees Supergirl and Red Daughter fighting. . . and all those memories come flooding back. Martian mind-control is nothing compared to Alex's love for her sister.

* Alex, who had her memories of Kara being Supergirl wiped by J'onn, sees Supergirl and Red Daughter fighting. . . and all those memories come flooding back. Martian mind-control is nothing compared to Alex's love for her sister.
* Red Daughter uses some kind of lightning attack to overcast the sky (or change it suddenly to night), then beat the tar out of Supergirl. Supergirl's heart has stopped, and Alex is pleading with her to stay alive. Alex states, in almost childish logic, that sunlight is in everything, like the grass, and Kara can use that. ''And Kara does exactly that'', channeling the sunlight in the surrounding foilage to bring herself back to life. [[BadassBoast Kara earlier stated to Red Daughter that she wouldn't give up as long as her heart was beating]], [[NotHyperbole and now proves even that won't stop her.]]
* Lena gets her mother's help in finishing her Harun-El research by latching a baby Truth Seeker on her arm so she can't lie, then poisoning her lunch (not to mention buying the prison Lillian was in to secure her decidely temporary release). Once Lillian comes through, Lena holds out the antidote, telling her to drink it.
