Fort Rozz is the destination for our Ladies Legion. Kara and Saturn Girl must pull in Livewire and Psi to help them, because the ship orbits a star deadly to men. Reign has learned of their plan and goes to intercept them. Meanwhile Alex is on babysitter detail taking care of Ruby.

Fort Rozz:

MOS52 - Fort Rozz - Ladies

Supergirl, evidently, is very strong. When she pushed Fort Rozz into space, it hurtled light years away and found orbit around a blue star. The star means Kara is powerless and beings with Y chromosomes are killed. The issues is there is a priestess on Fort Rozz who can help Supergirl turn Reign to the good side. Jindah Kol Rozz (Sarah Douglas) was powerful and the prison ship was named for her. Faced with the challenges of getting to the ship and facing a ship filled with people who hate her, Kara needs back up. Saturn Girl is there to fly the Legion’s ship and provide some backup. Kara has to reach out to Livewire (Brit Morgan). Kara finds her working in a diner and hiding from Reign. Livewire agrees to help to take out Reign and protect her friends. Kara has Psi (Yael Brobglas) released from DEO holding, but she has a power dampener to protect the team.

The Ladies Legion makes it to the ship and after a rough docking make it inside. They encounter a wild prisoner who takes down Supergirl and Saturn Girl. Only with a poweedr Psi and Livewire is she captured. She tells the ladies that the last person who went to find Jindah never returned. The ship’s docking to the fort caused it to slip out of orbit and it is falling into the star. Saturn Girl and Psi stay behind to try and fix things. Kara and Livewire head out to find Jindah. They encounter wraith like guards who take out Supergirl.  Livewire has to teleport the guards and herself into space to escape them. Supergirl awakes and finds Jindah. But Jindah does not want to aid Supergirl, she wants to finish her. She wants Reign and the other World Killers, Purity and Pestilence to destroy Kara.

Reign Takes out Rozz on Fort Rozz:

MOS52 - Fort Rozz - Battle

Reign is struggling with her human side. She goes to her fortress to seek answers from the Dark Kryptonian. She says she must suppress her human side. But there is a more pressing matter. The Dark Kryptonian tells Reign why the women are going to Fort Rozz. If they get there, they will find out ways to defeat Reign. Reign is sent in her shuttle to intercept the Ladies.

Reign shows up and Jindah is thrilled. She thinks she can join forces the take down of the House of EL. Jindah starts to gloat and a fully powered Reign takes her out with heat vision. But before Reign can take out Supergirl, Livewire and Psi come to save the day. Livewire and Reign go toe to toe and Livewire goes down. But she still throws herself in front of Kara to save her life. Psi takes over Reign and forces a break through. Reign falters and sees Ruby reaching out for help. Reign regains some control and flies back to her shuttle and to Earth.

The Ladies make it back to Earth. Psi is given a better cell and has some respect from Kara. Kara and Mon-EL have a good talk and he gives her some good advice. Things are moving forward in good ways.

Special Agent Danvers – Babysitter:

MOS52 - Fort Rozz - Alex Ruby

Alex is laid up in her apartment and talking with Kara, when Sam and Ruby come over. Sam is on her way to a conference but her babysitter cancelled. So Alex volunteers to take care of Ruby. Alex gets a text from Maggie that throws her for a loop. She is still not over Maggie and hurting. Ruby says she is hurting too. A girl at school is bullying her for not giving answers on a test. Alex goes into full FBI mode and goes to the girl’s house. She threatens her with exposure and telling her parents.

Alex and Ruby bond and have a great time. They find Maggie’s passport and get it ready to send of to her. They promise to be there for each other. Sam shows up and has a talk just with Alex. She says she is loosing time, skipping trips, and she is scared. She may not know she is Reign yet, but a breakthrough is coming.

Closing Thoughts:

Fort Rozz was interesting in several ways. First we have the redemption of Livewire and a step forward for Psi. Kara made her peace with Mon-EL and still has hope for bringing Reign back from the edge. But we had the birth of another World Killer, I’m betting Purity. For all the Plot Device things, I did enjoy the character progression of Reign. Over all a better episode than we had last week.
