*{{Plot Hole}}: This episode contains a number of plot hole:
** Lena mentioning to Kara that she is not used to having friends let alone working with them. The episode ends with Lena introducing Sam as the new CFO of LCorp, who is her old friend who she used to work with
** Lena also said in Luthors that she never had a friend or family like Kara before. Here we learn Sam is such a close friend, that Ruby considers Lena an aunt
** Lena announces that Sam is the new CFO of LCorp because she is standing down to run Catco. However, Lena only bought Catco at the end of the previous episode and Sam was already in National City to start at LCorp.
** Infamously, Kara entering the Catco elevator in front of most of the staff, having a panic attack, changing into Supergirl and leaving a massive hole in the roof as she flies through it (and presumably her clothes in the elevator). The consequences of this are never mentioned in the episode.
