|Two days after Kara’s defeat by Reign, the DEO and the Legion use the latter's technology to heal Kara from her injuries. This saves her life but she remains in a coma. The Legion’s Coluan member, Brainiac 5, enters her mind to try to wake her. Though Sam continues her life with Ruby after spending Christmas Day with her, Reign takes control over her sporadically without Sam's knowledge, and Ruby remains unaware of her mother's divided personality. Reign continues her rampage throughout National City, leading to a series of confrontations with the DEO and the Legion. Ultimately, Kara emerges from her coma and joins them when Reign seeks to destroy a prison facility. Kara injects Reign with a concentration dose of liquefied kryptonite, forcing the latter to retreat. Prior to Kara's awakening, J’onn, who disguised himself as Kara to cover for her, advises Lena on her new relationship with James; Lena sees that James is not trying to distance himself from her because of her family, but she is afraid to be with him, and they become closer afterward. Kara takes steps to move on from Mon-El after her near-death experience, and develop a friendship with Brainiac 5. As Reign recuperates in her fortress, she learns that there are other Worldkillers like her, and Coville joins her.|
