"You didn't give up, even when that whistle blower got killed. You weren't afraid to pursue the truth, no matter what the risk. And we need more reporters like that. More reporters like you, that care about the truth."
Snapper Carr rehiring Kara Danvers
"Ace Reporter" is the eighteenth episode of the second season of Supergirl, and the thirty-eighth episode overall. It aired on April 24, 2017.


Lena’s ex-boyfriend, Jack Spheer, comes to National City to unveil his big breakthrough in nano-technology, which has the potential to eradicate all diseases. Lena asks Kara to attend Jack’s conference with her for support. When Kara sees Snapper in attendance she’s inspired to tap back into her reporter skills and questions Jack on his discovery, which ultimately leads to a bigger investigation that puts everyone in danger.[1]




  • This is the first episode of the series to not feature Floriana Lima (Maggie Sawyer) after signing on as a series regular.
  • Jack Spheer's pet name and password is "starling". This is possibly a reference to Starling City, the initial name of the home of Green Arrow in Arrow, due to Spheer's connections with Green Arrow in the comics.
  • The latest version of Biomax that Jack tested on himself is version 38. This is a reference to Earth-38, the earth where Supergirl takes place in.
