The door opened and there was Cleaver, and beyond him, flat out on the bed, his wife, Kathleen, eight months pregnant. The sense of awe I felt that day never left me. The shortcomings of the Black Panther Party are clear enough in retrospect, but they took the battle to the streets, demanded justice and were prepared to bear arms to protect their community.
They denounced American imperialism as the war in Vietnam gathered pace. Cleaver had arrived secretly in Algiers using Cuban travel documents. The Cubans had put him on a plane to Algiers without informing the Algerians. Cleaver felt his life hung in the balance. Since I was the only American the local officials knew, I was often called on to interpret and explain, and to take responsibility for Americans who arrived without realising that hardly anyone in Algeria spoke English. I explained that Cleaver wished to remain in the country and to hold an international press conference.
I did the same, into English, for the Cleavers. We have to take back our culture! From then on, we were a team. Cleaver was tall — he seemed to me towering — and sexy, with a perfectly developed sense of humour and expressive green eyes. He and I had a rapport, no sex but much sharing of confidences. When the Cleavers arrived, I was working at the Ministry of Information organising the first Pan-African Cultural Festival, which was to bring together musicians, dancers, actors and intellectuals from every country in Africa and the black diaspora, including members of the Panthers from the US.
For more than a week, the streets of Algiers overflowed, performances filled the day and carried on into the small hours. The local stagehands were shocked: they had never seen a drunk woman. Cleaver and his companions — most of them also refugees from US justice — were quickly integrated into the cosmopolitan community of liberation movements.
After the festival, the delegation returned to California, while the exiles got down to business. I accompanied him on these visits: he was dignified and lucid, performing like a seasoned diplomat, despite his past as a school dropout, rapist and convict. He could also close down, and retreat to an inaccessible place.
Cleaver was the star of the conference and stayed on for more than a month. One morning, shortly after his return, he showed up at the Ministry of Information, where I was part of a small team working on a political magazine for international distribution. He was wearing shades and slumped down on a chair next to my desk. They had hijacked a plane to Cuba and joined up with Cleaver. He and Booth, who witnessed the murder, had buried the body on a wooded hillside a little way out of town, near the sea. I was angry with Cleaver for imagining I needed to know any of this.

Did he think I could help him if the Algerian authorities got wind of the murder and decided to take action? When I next saw Cleaver he told me that the hastily buried remains had been discovered, and added that it must have been obvious from the afro and the tattoos that the victim was an African-American.
By then Booth had left the country.

A French friend of the Panthers was summoned to police headquarters to identify the body but no one from the Algerian authorities ever got in touch with the Panthers or with me, though I was sure the killing had gone on record. His royalties from Soul on Ice , the defiant confession that had made him famous, were blocked by the US government. The interview went well and soon afterwards he called to say the Panthers had been assigned a villa formerly occupied by the Vietcong delegation in the El Biar sector of the city. Why did the authorities decide to support the Panthers more openly?
There were ideological reasons too. It was obvious to everyone living there that Algeria was not neutral in the struggle between the superpowers. Cleaver was on top of the world after receiving formal recognition. In May, he shipped his pregnant wife off to give birth in North Korea. Meanwhile Cleaver had met a gorgeous young Algerian called Malika Ziri who was constantly at his side. Attaching herself publicly to a black American at least 15 years older than her in a society where discretion was the rule would have required immense self-confidence.

The Panthers were stars in Algiers, but their flamboyance was also looked on critically. They openly dated attractive women, both Algerian and foreign. I can still picture Sekou Odinga, an exile from the New York branch of the Panthers, swooping along the rue Didouche in a shiny red convertible with the top down, a lovely auburn-haired American at the wheel.
The official opening of the headquarters of the International Section took place on 13 September The commandant wished us well. My first impression was that the Learys were elderly hipsters. In the name of the revolution Cleaver decided that Leary had to denounce drugs, and Leary agreed to take part in a BPP film session aimed at US audiences.

The only way she can know is if the walls he built in her brain come down on their own.
Kara is so, so sad.
This exhausted cry is so relatable it hurts. Before Lena goes to see Lockwood like she said, she goes to see her mother, who is in her lab. Because Lena bought her prison and got her a weekend off. Because of course she did. Lena starts with a test and asks about a high school boyfriend. Lillian blurts out that she paid him to leave Lena alone. Frankly this seems way more fun than the knock-down, drag-out screaming matches my mom and I would have. Lena asks where Lex is, and it quickly becomes clear that he has no idea that Lex Luthor has been the puppetmaster of his life for the past few years.
I know there was a conversation happening but all I could think about is whether this was a new suit or the same one, and how good her eyes look in this normally-unflattering lighting. She almost calls the mission a bust, but then Lockwood speeds away and they realize he could lead them somewhere useful. Dreamer has a plan. But Alex trusts her, so she immediately shuts off the cameras so they can work in private.
Alex tells her the whole thing about the Supergirl copy and the President being corrupt Haley is immediately on board with taking them all down. Both Danvers girls in power stances makes my heart flutter. They find an address, and Supergirl insists on going alone. Get it? Because the Red Daughter is like a mirror-universe version of herself? Lockwood is still deteriorating, so he gives himself another injection of Harun-El and storms into a safe house to confront Otis, who confirms everything Lena said about Lex pulling his puppet strings.
Lena and James creep in and watch from the rafters as Lockwood realizes that no one else believes in his cause like he does, and that all Lex wants is to fake an attack from Kaznia so he can be the hero.

Otis says that now that Lockwood knows, he has to die, and a fight breaks out. She describes the way she worries about Kara feeling like part of her heart is just running around in the world, unprotected. Alex is relieved to hear that, until Supergirl panics and says that Eliza is not safe. Kara tries to reason with her, she knows the Red Daughter is having doubts about Lex, but she snaps and says his name is Alex. My kingdom for the unaired scenes when Red Daughter is trying to impersonate Kara but Eliza totally figures it out and plays along.
Supergirl tries one more time to connect with the Red Daughter, mentioning Mikhail, but instead of being the bonding agent she hoped, it sets her off, because she thinks Americans killed the little boy she cared about. The Red Daughter suits up in her new supersuit, complete with helmet, and flies outside. Supergirl is hot on her tail, and they do some pretty epic fighting in the sky.
But the Red Daughter has some kind of purple lightning situation, and punches Supergirl with it so hard, possibly into next Tuesday? And they fall to the ground, where they fight some more. Alex rolls up on her motorcycle, and when she sees Supergirl getting punched, memories start flooding back to her.
