During her investigation of Project Cadmus, she becomes friends with Lena Luthor, the stepdaughter of Lillian. However, unlike her mother and brother Lex Luthor, Lillian is a genuine person and she sincerely wants to redeem the name of their family’s organization, LuthorCorp. This season also brought in some sort of romance in the series as Kara is smitten by Mon-El who is a prince from Daxam and J’onn is seen becoming friends with M’gann irrespective of the fact that his people (the White Martians) slaughtered J’onn’s tribe.
However, in season 3, Kara suffered a heartbreak when Mon-El left Earth. Although he returned, he revealed that he was taken into the 31st century where he became the leader of Legion and got married to Imra Ardeen. Once again, Supergirl and Alex had to face another problem which was a killing device called Reign. Unknown to them, Reign was their new friend Samantha Arias who they did not know was also from Krypton. Samantha who was a single mum began to transform into Reign and started causing havoc.
The season 4 of Supergirl was packed with much action as Kara had to deal with the devious schemes of Lex Luthor.

It was also revealed in this season that Lex masterminded the creation of a clone called ”Red Daughter” to be a replica of Kara. This creation was being trained to fight against Kara with the ultimate goal of eliminating her.
However, Lex who was in prison could not live to see the end of his project but before his demise, he told Kara something which she refused to relate to anyone. Lena Luthor who is very familiar with her brother’s deception knows that whatever secret he told Kara was to deceive her.
