All is quiet at the tower. Brainy and Lena have secured the courage and humanity totems with a combination of Earth magic and Coluan calculations. This leaves Kara to focus on the interview of a lifetime. The leaders of Kaznia and Corto Maltese have agreed to sit down and decide on terms of a peace agreement.  Kara has secured access for Catco in this historic event. Needless to say, Andrea is over the moon about the news.

Nia has returned empty handed from Parthas. Maeve took all their mother’s books and research and fled to parts unknown. Brainy suggests that Nia have a healthy breakfast including her greens, give her mind over to her dream powers and let her visions lead the way. Meanwhile, Nyxly is also looking for the dream totem. She breaks into a research facility where a scientist has built a machine to harness dream power. She uses the gauntlet from her secret admirer to open a portal to the dream realm. What escapes in the interim will cause much havoc in the city and will need to be contained.

Nia’s dreams lead her to a university to speak to a professor there. Upon her arrival at the office door from her dreams, Nia comes face to face with her sister Maeve. This is the first time the girls have been together since Maeve insulted Nia at their mother’s funeral.  Despite the pain that has been caused the sisters set out to the dream realm to save the next totem from Nyxly’s grasp.

Downtown a nightmare monster is tormenting National City.  Lena reprograms some of Lex’s old satellites to project a dome over half the city. This is necessary to contain the creature who was steps away from causing a nuclear catastrophe. The Super Friends have saved the city, but the Governor does not see it that way. She sees a group of people who leap into action before consulting those in charge. She only sees a large barrier that is separating people from their homes and jobs. Also, parents from their children. The National Guard mobilizes against the dome nearly causing the monster to not be vanquished back to its realm.

Nia and Maeve are still working to decode which path leads to the totem.  Maeve’s jealousy takes hold again for what she feels is a birthright lost. I am glad to see that after such a deep hurt on both sides the healing is not instantaneous. However, their lack of solidarity in this moment cost them the dream totem.

Needless to say, when a quiet day turned into chaos Kara missed her interview. William reminded her of advice from Cat Grant. “You can have it all but not necessarily all at the same time “. Maybe right now is the season for Supergirl to shine. Kara turns in her resignation to Andrea. Nyxly’s suit is badly damaged from her battle with Dreamer.  The AI within the suit asks to hold the dream totem. A few seconds later Lex Luthor materialized in the room. What is he doing here?  What is his role in the story?  Will he ever pay for sending our beloved Maid of Steel to the Phantom Zone? 

Will Supergirl and her friends win back the dream totem?
