She is married to Lieutenant Danny Green, the leader of a Navy Mountain Warfare Unit team aboard the USS Nathan James.

In the episode Trials, Kara was involved in the testing of the antidote for the cure, and due to the symptoms she presented with, Rachel and Quincy discovered that she was pregnant. After the antidote was developed, she was injected with it, and her and her unborn baby are now immune to the virus.

Kara and Danny now have a baby boy named Frankie, in honor of Danny's deceased friend Franklin Benz. In "Don't Look Back" Kara aids in the rescue of Tom Chandler's kids and the defeat of Allison Shaw by acting as a sniper during the standoff with Shaw's forces and taking Captain Chandler's kids out of the plane.
