Welcome back! With the crossover event now in the books, it’s time for the mid-season finale. Yes, last night’s episode is the last we get until Jan. 15, but trust me — it’s a good one. As always, spoilers from here forward.

We open with Samantha waking up from a nightmare and Ruby rushing in to check on her. Turns out, Samantha doesn’t remember anything. She doesn’t remember going to the desert, and she certainly doesn’t remember Reign.

At the DEO, Mon-El and Imra are explaining things to the group. Specifically, they reveal that they are part of the Legion of Superheroes and it was founded in Supergirl’s honor. Because that’s not awkward at all. Mon-El also explains that they went back in time accidentally and now needs the DEO’s help to get back to the 31st century. Even more awkward, but since we’re riding that train, Kara invites Mon-El and his wife to her place for a holiday party. Mon-El has the decency to decline.

Party time. J’onn, Alex, Winn, Lena, James, M’yrnn are all there. Samantha and Ruby show up a little late and Samantha says she’s had a rough day. Alex and Ruby go chat, as Ruby has lots of questions about Supergirl. Kara and Samantha tease Lena about the chemistry between Lena and James, but J’onn interupts. They’ve got a call and have to go.

Where they’re going? A field where there’s a logo burned into the ground. That logo happens to be Reign’s so Kara asks her hologram mom about it. The logo is Kryptonian, but there is no real translation. At CatCo, James is watching news reports of the weird emblem. Lena thinks Morgan Edge is behind it so they go confront Edge, who claims to be innocent.

At what appears to be the alien bar, Mon-El and Imra are having dinner when Kara and Winn show up. Mon-El is being a bit of a jerk and appears to be taking Imra to all the places he and Kara enjoyed. Winn pulls Imra aside for a beer to give Kara a chance to talk to Mon-El, but a phone call from prison interrupts.

That call is from the Rao cult leader Thoams Coville. He explains to Kara that the end is coming because this Reign character is the devil. Kara needs to fight her. Kara claims to not believe in a devil.

Samantha is at work at L Corp and Ruby wants to go. She’s hungry and wants dinner, but Samantha says she is too busy. The nanny will have to get her. Ruby is understandably upset so Samantha shares some of their best Christmas memories and gives her an early present of a gold necklace of Supergirl’s emblem. Stronger together.

At the DEO, Kara tells the team what Coville told her and Imra says she can help. She also pulls Kara aside and tries to convince her that Mon-El didn’t move on from her easily and he really loved her. This isn’t helping. Meanwhile, Lena and James are out investigating the symbols because they still think Edge is responsible. They end up being shot at, but James saves the day. Then, we see a drug deal that gets interrupted though we don’t see by who.

Back at CatCo, Lena and James figure out that the person who shot at them used to work for Morgan Edge. The news starts reporting the deaths of the drug dealers and Samantha sees the photo of edge and walks out of the office, opening up her shirt to reveal her Reign costume. At the DEO, Winn is able to determine that Edge really isn’t behind things. That burn in the field? Kryptonian.

Mon-El tries to talk to Kara. She stops him because it’s really weird that he’s all concerned but doesn’t seem to care about her at the same time. Reign comes and and attacks Edge’s Christmas party, though he manages to hide until she leaves. Kara heads off to find Reign. Or course, Edge also decides to call a press conference about the attack at his party and he insinuates that it was Supergirl. Lena and James drink some whiskey together. Then they kiss.

Mon-El and Imra train at the DEO. Kara can’t stand to watch it which is good since Reing has left a symbol. Reign, at the top of the CatCo building, introduces herself to Supergirl and the fight is on. It’s an epic fight, with the two having this crazy battle while Christmas music plays in the background. Of course, the fight makes it to the street and it doesn’t go well for Supergirl. Reign strikes her enough that she is bruised, bleeding and in bad shape. Reign finally takes Kara to the top of a building, declares that she is no god, and then drops her. Supergirl hits the ground below and is unconscious. Alex is able to get her to the DEO, but Supergirl’s vitals begin to crash.

Meanwhile, back at Samantha’s house, Ruby wakes up the next day and goes to wish her mom a Merry Christmas. Instead, she finds her mom, back turned to her, presumably still in her Reign suit, ominously looking out the window.

And when the show returns Jan. 15? It’s Legion of Super-Heroes time!
