Kara flies happily above National City and, exited, lands at the D.E.O. for a day of butt-kicking, only to be disappointed that there's nothing going on. J'onn, Alex and Winn have other things to do, which leaves Kara with essentially nothing to do. She returns home and attempts to bake, only to fail every time. Lena suddenly shows up and asks her to come along with her to a demonstration arranged by her ex-boyfriend Jack Spheer, CEO of Spheerical Industries. Kara agrees and in the demonstration Kara encounters her ex-boss Snapper Carr. The demonstration is about a nanobots capable of curing any kind of wound or ailment, called Biomax. This encourages Kara to make use of her reporter skills again, and she manages to beat Snapper by getting her question to Jack answered. Later, as Jack attempts to reconcile with Lena, Kara meets with a man named Joe Watkins, who tells her to meet with him later that evening. Kara shows up and inside his car Joe reveals that even though Spheerical delivered human trial tests, he believes Spheerical faked them. However, neither Kara or Joe witness that a swarm of Biomax nanobots is crawling under the car. By the time they hear the noise they make, the car explodes. Thanks to her powers, Kara survives but Joe is killed.
The next day Kara comes to comfort Lena about Jack's death and promises her that she will never leave her. Kara then goes to CatCo and just as Snapper calls out to Eve about her snack, Kara arrives with her own take on it. Snapper then shows Kara the article about Spheerical, and asks Kara to look at the headline; the article is published with both Snapper's and Kara's names. Kara then admits that Snapper taught her, that in the end it's not the reporter that matters, but the truth. And she has been seeking truth so badly, that she overstepped her authority and broke the rules. Snapper then tells Kara that he is impressed about how Kara kept searching for the truth despite her source getting killed in front her eyes, and that they need more reporters like her, thus giving Kara her job back.
Far be it for me to question a media icon like Carl Bernstein. How many other mortals cancorrectly include on their resume that they helped topple a sitting president of the UnitedStates as an investigative reporter during the Watergate caper? Who can boast that Dustin Hoffman played us in the movie that recounted the event? 2b1af7f3a8
