This episode was all about damage control both professionally and personally.
Let's get to the pulling off the band-aid part of the episode as Alex and Maggie finally talk it out once again about if they truly are done because Alex wants kids and Maggie doesn't. When they finally talk it out, it turns that they have to break up.
But there's some bright side when it comes to breaking up, mainly between Alex and Maggie. As Alex was packing things up and listening to a depressing song, Maggie changes the song to a very nice and upbeat. The two kiss and move to the bed where they spend one or more time together. After all that, Maggie packs and leaves but not with a long, emotional goodbye kiss.
Meanwhile, Lena deals with crises of her own when Edge blames her for the lead poisoning of the kids from the lead bomb in the season 2 finale. With the while city hating Lena, she tries to calm the storm, but one of the parents tries to assistant her but failed. Samantha takes Lean in until they figure out the whole problem. Kara and Samantha investigate and figures out (mostly Samantha) that all the kids that became sick were at a local pool.
The two breaks in (thanks to Kara) and looks around. With a sample of the pool water that turned out to have the lead. Samantha and Kara quickly found the chlorine from a company that has lead in it. Kara informed Lena about it and asked about the company if she ever heard of them. She tells her no, but she knows it's Edge's company.
Lena confronts Edge and threatens him with a gun, but he gets the last laugh as one of his guys knocks her out and leaves her in an airplane that's carrying the same chlorine. Edge is controlling the plane, but with Lena's quick SOS SOS call, Kara got there just in time and saved both Lena and the chlorine barrels.
Kara confronts Edge about attacking Lena and the two butted heads until Kara steps away.
Lena and James's relationship seems to be going in a better way than it had been since Lena bought CatCo. Kara, Lena, and Samantha have a nice sisterly evening to celebrate. Kara later confronts Alex about her break up with Maggie, and at the end of the episode, Samantha finds out that she was shot but didn't get injured at all.
"Damage" was an episode that I just endure with emotions and excitement. The Alex and Maggie scenes were so good and at times faced with real raw emotions. With that, the Lena, Samantha and Kara storyline was even out with thrilling and fun at times, mostly watching Samantha and Kara scenes. Katie McGrath, Odette Annable, and Melissa Benoist show real good chemistry. Chyler Leigh and Floriana Lima gave a great performance. Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
