SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for "Bunker Hill," the latest episode of Supergirl.
Supergirl's entire life just got upended. In "Bunker Hill," the latest episode, President Baker fired the Girl of Steel from the D.E.O. because she wouldn't reveal her secret identity.
The episode saw Kara achieve both a major victory and a stunning loss. Thanks to Nia Nal, she was able to prevent Agent Liberty from killing Manchester Black and got them both in police custody. However, at his very public arrest, Liberty made sure he didn't go down alone. He pointed out that he was vilified for wearing a mask, while Supergirl got to be a hero even though no one knew who she truly was.
Baker took this sentiment to heart. He personally showed up at the D.E.O. to berate Colonel Haley and D.E.O. director Alex Danvers. He raged that donors were pulling their funds due to Lockwood's arrest, then turned on Supergirl. He demanded she be transparent and reveal her identity. Stunned, Kara said her secret identity protected those she loved from harm.
Nevertheless, Baker pushed on, but she stood her ground. In light of this, he severed her affiliation with the D.E.O., though he insisted he didn't want a war with Supergirl. In response, she curtly told him not to start one. At that, Alex leapt into action, insisting she would find a way around this. Kara shook her head and told Alex to protect the D.E.O., before taking off out the window.
Since she became Supergirl, Kara has been a member of the D.E.O. Until this very moment, she has always had a team around her, helping her out while she was patrolling the streets of National City. It is unclear on where she will go from here, though she will likely try to continue being a hero. However, it's yet to be seen if this will be considered an "illegal" act now that she is no longer associated with the D.E.O. Either way, it seems she has landed herself on the new President's bad side.
Airing Sundays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, and Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers.
