Mon-El (Chris Wood) returned last night on Supergirl, but it wasn’t exactly the reunion both Kara and “Karamel” fans were hoping for. Get some Kleenex and prepare for spoilers beyond this point.

The episode opens with a submarine in the National City waterfront investigating the spaceship seen earlier this season. As they get close, though, they are blasted away from the spaceship.

At Samantha’s house, she’s cooking dinner for Ruby but gets the idea to see if she’s somehow immune to injury and puts her hand in the boiling water. Nothing happens which seems to startle her. She then orders Ruby to have dinner at a friend’s house tonight. She has to go somewhere.

Meanwhile at the DEO Winn has researched the mysterious ship and reveals that it’s been there a very, very long time and is made with a metal not from this world. This leads Kara, Winn, and J’onn to go check out the ship but getting there requires J’onn to phase them through the street deep below to where the ship is located.

Inside the shop they quickly realize that one of the stasis tubes is empty and then they are shot at by whoever that was. However, before any one get hurt Kara realizes that it’s Mon-El. He looks as startled as she does but the two hug. Back at the DEO they run tests and discover that he can now breathe Earth’s air. However, Mon-El isn’t in a good place to answer questions, though he does say that the others on the ship are like him. As the room clears, Mon-El tells Kara that he had tried to send her a message to let him know he’s okay.

Samantha has left National City and arrives at a house where she speaks with Patricia, her adoptive mother. We also find out that Patricia kicked her out when she got pregnant with Ruby and that has created some divide between them. Samantha starts asking questions about her childhood which leads Patricia to show her a barn on the property. In that barn? The pod she arrived on Earth in. When Samantha touches it, it turns on and some odd crystal-like device rises from it. Samantha takes it. Back home, she tells Ruby she has to go on a trip but that it’s a good thing.

At the DEO, Kara has noticed that Mon-El seems distant and Alex encourages J’onn to go spend time with his dad. The two Martians go, but after getting coffee they get into a bit of an argument while at the DEO, Mon-El gets up and breaks into the alien artifact room. He’s preparing to steal something when Kara arrives and knocks him out.

Mon-El wakes up and he’s in a DEO holding cell and try as she might, Kara can’t get him to tell her what he is up to. Winn can’t really, either, except Mon-El tells him that he has to get back to the ship so that people, including Kara, don’t get hurt.

Samantha’s road trip continues with her vehicle overheating on a dirt road in the desert. Kara discover Mon-El is no longer in his cell.

At the mystery ship, Mon-El uses the item he took from the artifact room and is using it to power things on the ship, namely those stasis tubes. Of course, Kara shows up to stop him and that’s when Mon-El reveals that what feels like seven months for her has really been seven years for him. That wormhole he went into last season took him into the 31st century (which is also why he can breathe thanks to a cure that exists in the future.) With the pods failing, one of the people inside starts to drown and Mon-El is clearly freaking out so Kara breaks open the glass. Out comes a woman Mon-El calls Imra.

Back in the desert, Samantha is walking when the ground starts to shake and giant rock forms start sprouting from the ground until they create a sinister looking fortress. Meanwhile, J’onn takes M’yrnn to his apartment and talks about Earth and asks his dad to move in with him.

Back at the DEO, Winn checks on Imra’s vitals while Mon-El talks to Kara. He apologizes and talks about how he never forgot her, but before he can tell her the rest Imra walks up and Mon-El runs to her…and they passionately kiss. That’s when Mon-El drops a bomb: Imra is his wife.

And now we close things out. Samantha goes into the fortress and starts to get some answers. She’s Kryptonian but not like Supergirl. The hologram tells Samantha that she is a world-killer named Reign and that she will forget bout her daughter. Samantha falls over in pain but when she stand back up again, her eyes glow red. Reign has awakened.

Next week? It’s the Arrowverse crossover event, Crisis On Earth-X!
