"Damage" is the fifth episode of the third season of Supergirl, and the forty-seventh episode overall. It aired on November 6, 2017.


When multiple children get sick from lead poisoning, Morgan Edge points the finger at Lena and blames her creation of the lead bomb she made to save National City from the Daxamites. While Lena knows she never intended any harm, she fears there may have been a flaw in her design, leaving her responsible. Kara teams up with Samantha to clear Lena's name, but it turns out to be harder than they thought. Meanwhile, Alex and Maggie make a crucial decision about the future of their relationship.[1]


  • When Lena mentions Acre Lee to Edge, he asks whether she's referring to "where the coyote gets all the stuff that he's gonna use to kill the roadrunner". He is referencing ACME, a mail-order company that provides Wile E. Coyote products to kill Road Runner in the Looney Tunes cartoons.
