The video begins with Jimmy Olsen welcoming Mon-El to CatCo, who then quips, "Kinda expected someone a bit more intimidating." Next, we see a quick flash of Mon-El and Kara dancing as Jimmy clenches his fists, before a quick montage of a fist fight between Jimmy and an unknown assailant. Then there's a flash of a masked Olsen taking on several criminals in a parking garage before a scene where the gang leader fires a burst of light from a piece of alien tech. The clip ends with leader standing over Supergirl and Jimmy, proclaiming, "Lights out, Supergirl."
