Superman and Lois (2021–…): Season 1, Episode 13 - Fail Safe - full transcript

The Kents and Cushings deal with the fallout from Morgan's use of Smallville. Clark suggests that someone should have weapons capable of stopping him, but Lois disagrees. Meanwhile, Morgan considers his past and what his father Zeta told him.

Previously on
Superman & Lois...

Let's just focus on
what we came here for. Family.

I don't want to be
just friends, anymore.

Look around here. That's your doing!

People are angry.

You destroyed everything I'd built.

I will make you suffer.

Not even Superman is strong enough
to resist Zod.

Fight back, damnit!

We got him.

I'm very glad you're better, Clark.
I won't doubt you again.

Leslie Larr is still in the wind?

She'll be in custody
by the end of the week.

Morgan Edge is in
a state of the art military prison.

Complete what you were sent here for.



I'm sorry, Father.

- I must rest.
- Rest?

This is nothing compared
to what you will endure.


I fear I made a mistake
sending you, Tal. You are no savior.

- I will be.
- When?

We've been at this for months

and yet you still falter.

Father, please.

I am the one.
I will become who I was chosen to be.

Then prove it.

Prove to me that you'll never shame
the House of Rho again.

What happened to the Eradicator?

You had it right before the blast.
What did you do with it?

Where is it?


Where is Leslie Larr?

How could I know?

I can't see beyond
these lead-lined walls.

And all I hear... is what's in my mind.

There may still be time for her.

It's too late.

Leslie Larr replaced Irma Sayres
a long time ago.

And you feel nothing
for what you've done?

I feel more than
you could possibly imagine.

But my concern isn't for the souls
of this planet.

It's for those
that need to be resurrected.

My own. Even your soul, Kal.

How wrong I was.

You were.

So was your father.

I found this at your fortress.

Go ahead.

Rid me of my father's influence
as I rid you of yours.

This crystal will never be used again.

You don't want to tell me
where Larr is, fine.

I'll find her and bring her here.

After that, you and I will never
see each other again.

I spoke with your grandfather.

The DOD's gonna stick around town
a little longer than they planned.

Until you guys find Leslie Larr?

That and they're
shutting down the mines.


Gonna get all the X-Kryptonite out,
so no one else gets hurt.

- So no one else gets powers, you mean.
- Also true.

And then what?

We're supposed to go back to school

and pretend like
none of this ever happened?

Principal Balcomb's holding
an all-school assembly today.

She'll talk to everyone about it.

Answer any questions she can.

Maybe we should just stay home.

Yeah. Nice try.

As far as everyone is concerned,
Edge was experimenting with people,

giving them powers, mind control.

I discovered what he was up to,

with the help of your grandfather
who had help from Superman,

we stopped him, copy?

Yeah, don't worry, Mom. We're getting
pretty good at cover stories, so...

- You ready? We gotta go.
- Yeah.

- Love you, guys.
- Love you.

Chrissy keeps texting,
wondering when I'm coming in.

I gotta go.

You want a to-go plate?

Our guest is probably hungry.

I understand your frustration.

I just ask for your patience.

And you're recommending Kyle
take a leave from the station?

Just until all this
Edge stuff blows over.

- Couple weeks, tops.
- Couple weeks?

Come on, Mayor.
I just want to get back to work.

Kyle, maybe he's right.

You know, I'm not the only one
who wanted Edge coming here.

And I've been
saying the same thing, Kyle.

Trust me. I'm not quite sure
why people have been singling you out,

but I am going to change the narrative.

Make sure that they put the blame
where it should be.

Just give me some time.

Attention! Attention!
All students are now required...

Today's gonna suck.

Feels like the Salem witch trials
out here.

- Hey, Sarah.
- Where's everybody going?

School assembly, about Edge.

I can't do this today.

What? Where you going?

Anywhere but here.

- Yo, Kent!
- Yo! What's good, boys?

Dude, is it true?

Your grandpa runs the DOD?


Yes. Yes, something like that. Yeah.

Sounds like some
Get Out-level stuff went down.

Come on, man. How'd Edge do it?

Okay, gentlemen, head to the gym.

Let's get a move on. Let's go.

- You too, Mr. Kent.
- Yes, ma'am.

Today's gonna be weird, isn't it?


Yeah, yeah. No, I...

I'd, honestly, rather be pretty much
anywhere but here right now.

We can be.

We could just find
something better to do.


We need a story, Lois.

Big story, front page, catchy banners.

Something like, "The Edge of Humanity."

Maybe something better than that.

It's a jumping-off point.

This is the biggest story of the year.

The biggest story of my career.

This is like Superman-
first-showing-up-in-Metropolis big.

That's why we need to
do more interviews.

What we're lacking in hard evidence

we can make up for
with eyewitness testimonies.

Anything to back up all this crazy.

We need to talk to more Edge employees.
We have to talk to the mayor.

- Your dad?
- He doesn't do interviews.

DOD always releases a statement, though.

- When?
- I don't know, probably soon.

Lois, people are calling here non-stop.
Freaking out.

All with bits and pieces of information,
mostly gossip.

They're desperate for answers.

And I'd feel a lot better
giving it to them

if we had some kind of verification
from the DOD.

I'll reach out to him right now.

Home-cooked meal?


Room and board?

Hey, you saved my life, saved the world.

As far as we're concerned,
you eat free here the rest of your life.

What's this?

My, uh, Kryptonian tracking system.

I enhanced the range
to help with the our search for Larr.

- Might get lucky.
- Is that how you found me?

- More or less.
- You know, with your skills,

Sam could really use
someone like you at the DOD.

- I could talk to him if you want.
- I don't think so.

Look, Clark, I appreciate you
opening your home to me,

but once we find Leslie,
I think I'm just going to move on.

Figure out, now that I'm on this planet,
how to make it my home.

May not seem like it,
but I know what you mean.

Enjoy the food.

Detecting a Kryptonian air mobile.

- Where?
- She's heading for the DOD.

- Prepare the suit.
- Synching with all functions now.

- Sam, any sign of Larr?
- Negative.

- Has the building been evacuated?
- Not yet.

- About 60%.
- Sir, we got eyes on Larr.

- ETA?
- Impact in five seconds.

Four, three, two, one...


You haven't won, Kal.

- Nice shot.
- Thanks.

It's over,
but we have loose ends to tie up.

We got Edge and Larr.

I think it's safe to say
we can finally move on.


I had those weapons built
for the wrong reasons.

What are you saying?

I was wrong to think
you could be a threat to the world.

I'm gonna take that Kryptonite
and those weapons,

bury them in concrete

and sink 'em to the bottom of the ocean.

What about Edge? Larr?

We'll keep enough
to guard them appropriately,

but there will no longer
be enough to supply an army.

- I don't know what to say, Sam.
- You don't have to say anything.

Just know you, Lois, the boys,
you don't have to worry anymore.

Are you making fun of my car?

No, no.

Says you,
you can't even drive.

I like the seat covers.
Nice thread count.

You guys live somewhere out here,
don't you?

Uh, yeah. Yeah. Not so far from here.
How did you know that?

Someone may have told me.

Yeah? What else did someone tell you?

That you have
a girlfriend in Metropolis.

Nah. Had.

We broke up.

How about you? Are you, um...

hanging out with anyone, or...

Nope. No one.


- I think I know where we can go.
- Yeah?



- You are a rule-breaker.
- Me?


You've missed more days this year
than any other kid in school.

I have a weak immune system.



Anyways, thank you for coming with me.

Of course.

Denise and Avery still giving you crap
about what happened?

I just know they're talking about me.

But it can't be worse than what
they're saying about my parents.

- That's not fair.
- I don't think fair is a real thing.

My mom, she's a public relations queen.

So what are you
still worried about then?

My dad, he...

Things like this
usually send him over a cliff.

I'm kinda just waiting
for that last little nudge.


You know, are you sure
you don't want to go to the movies

or, like, Main Street or something?

- Something fun?
- You tell me.

What about the bank?

Any chance you could get
your old job back?


No, they replaced me as soon as I left.

Besides, the whole thing
is tied up with that Edge mess.

Lana, what are we gonna do?


Oh, hey.


- Out of rehab, huh?
- Not quite out yet.

Just been craving chicken and waffles.

So the squad wanted to treat me.

Oh. Okay.

It just happened, Chief.

Yeah. I know how it happened.

Mayor Dean said he talked to you
about all this.

About a leave of absence?
Yeah, he talked to me about that.

- You're the one pushing for it?
- I think it's best for everybody.

Especially someone
gunning for my job, right?

Kyle, they were thinking about me
and the fire, that's all.

The fire?
The the one that I pulled you out of,

the one where I saved your life,
that fire?

The fire Edge's freaks started.

- Kyle.
- That's my fault?

I knew as much about what Edge was doing
as the rest of y'all.

- Okay.
- Hey!

I would never do anything
to hurt anyone.

Look, come on, y'all. Y'all know me.

Babe, let's go. Come on.

I can't believe you.

I don't have time for this, Lois.

We're not releasing
an official statement, and that's it.

- But it's standard procedure.
- If anything, it's a courtesy.

But you always give a comment.

Okay. No comment.

You can print that.

- You can't be serious,
- We've already said enough.

Enough to create more questions.
Dad, people are worried.

As we speak, a pamphlet is being made
to address the X-Kryptonite of it all.

- A work of fiction.
- But it will alleviate their concerns,

while also scaring them
into staying out of those mines.

This isn't right.

It's necessary.

Dad, this is my home now.
These people are my neighbors.

What am I supposed to say?

That Edge is Superman's brother?

That he was using those people

to build a Kryptonian army
to take over the world?

- No, of course not.
- I know it's not what you want to hear,

but you need to run your story
with the bare minimum.

Eventually, this town will be okay.

Trust me.

But the last thing our family needs,

is for this story
to get out of Smallville,

and any quote from me

will give it the legitimacy
for that to happen.


Finally, you are ready.

Now what, Father?

You will leave here
to find the Eradicator.

- And if it hasn't yet arrived?
- Stay there, until it does.

By myself? That could mean years.

It's already been many.

Study them, exploit their weaknesses
and profit from it.

Prepare for our resurrection.

Then perhaps before I go,
I could engage with Mother.

Get her counsel,
meet her once before I leave.

I have told you, repeatedly, that
your mother will never be by my side.

Then why include her crystal in my pod?

So she can witness my vision

for how Krypton will be restored.

Before I extinguish her forever.

- Please... just once...
- Leave!

And do not return until the day is here.


One last time...

where's the Eradicator?

I told you, it's of no use to you.

You don't want to tell me, fine.

We have everything else.

Including Leslie.

She's locked up now, same as you.

Stopped her before
she could break you out.

I don't know what the plan was,
but it wasn't a good one.

It's called loyalty.
Something you know nothing about.

I am loyal to the people of this world
who accepted me.

Accepted you?

They fear you.

- They always will and they should.
- You're wrong.

You should be a God.

But you became a slave to them.

Don't you ever wonder
who you might have been

if you hadn't landed here,

been raised by simple farmers...

- I'd be nothing like you.
- We both know that's not true.

You fight against your real nature
every day.

You don't know me.

I know the power surging through you.

I know how every moment
you make a choice

to hold yourself back,
because that's the only way

we can walk amongst humans
without killing them.

Isn't it? It's all about control.

But didn't it feel good to lose it,
just once?

Goodbye, Tal.

I can see it in your eyes, brother.

You've felt it.

You are just like me!

No comment?

They always give a comment.

Yeah, I don't know what to say.

Well, is it because we're a small paper?

You always got a statement
when you were at the Planet.

Chrissy, we don't need
the DOD or my dad.

We can do more interviews
and write what we want.

It just doesn't make any sense.

Is this story different somehow?

Not that I know of.

Lois, what is he hiding?

I don't know, Chrissy.

Are you lying right now?


You're totally lying.

Chrissy, it's not what you think.

Lois Lane is protecting the DOD.

You're supposed to be on the side
of the people, not the man.

I thought we were in this together.

- Chrissy...
- Lois, if you can't tell me the truth...

then maybe you should leave.

You know, your mom
is a legit role model.


One year, I even
dressed up as her for career day.

Okay, well,
full disclosure, I did too.

- What?
- Yeah.

Your family is really cool.


Well, between your mom
and your grandfather,

there's no question.

So, you heard about my grandpa?

- From someone?
- From everyone.

I mean, your family is kind of
in the middle of the biggest thing

to happen in Smallville.

You know, those people
were actually brainwashed.


They're saying that Edge was
experimenting on his employees.

My cousin said that
she saw Avery Phan's mom fly.

I heard about that. That's...
That's crazy, right?

What does your grandpa think?

Does he know how Edge
gave them all powers?

Tegan, why did you bring me here?

I wanted to get to know you.

I mean, you weren't interested in me
last week.

And then, what... I mean, what changed?

I don't know, Jonathan. I just...

Just wanted information?

Well, we're also hanging out.


Uh, I think I'm gonna walk home.

Wait, wait, wait, Jonathan.

Everyone wants to know what happened.


And obviously you want to be
the one to tell them.

Right, I get it.

See ya.

I mean, did you even see
the way they looked at me? Huh?

My own crew doesn't even trust me.

You can't take it personally, babe.

It ain't right.

Okay. You know, you risked your life
to save this town.

Maybe if these people knew about that...

What, and you think they'd believe it?

I barely do, and I was there.

Goddamn it! Lana, it...
It's just not fair.

No, it's not.

It sucks.

But the Mayor has our back.

We just have to be patient.
We're not alone in this.


But look, I cannot just stand
around here and do nothing.

Well... you can help me look for a job.

Well, finding something around here
is gonna be a long shot.

I know,

but I was thinking
we could look in the surrounding areas.

We could also move
to one of the surrounding areas.


If we're throwing out options, why not?

Oh, my gosh, you're serious.

Lana, these people have known us
our entire lives.

You know, what's it say about them,

if they're just so quick
to turn their backs on us like that?

These people, they're our family.

Look, this will blow over.

Well, I guess we'll see about that, huh.

How'd you find this place?

I used to come here with my abuelita.

She'd tell me stories about my family.

We're originally from Mexico,

but we've been in Smallville
for generations.

You know, half the time, I wouldn't even
know which one of her stories were true.

But it always just made me feel
like I had somewhere to belong.

I never really felt like
I belonged anywhere.

To be honest, until I met you.


Yeah, I know, I know, I know.
Whatever. But it's...

Look, all I'm saying is that
it only really takes one person

to change your whole life.

Just to make you feel safe.

And you have Jon
and you have your family,

and you have me.

And that's never going away.

You should probably kiss me now.

- Yeah?
- Yeah.

That's enough, you two!

We've got about
two dozen rifles and handguns.

Few thousand Kryptonite bullets,
give or take.

In addition to a substantial collection
of knives, swords, spears.

What about the prototypes
in the R&D lab?

The biochemical weapons?

Maybe five or so,
in varying stages of development.

And how much raw Kryptonite
do you have in your stockpile?

A couple warehouses worth.
Why all the questions?

It's all going to be gone anyway.

I think it's a mistake.


We need 7734.

It's why you authorized it
in the first place.

And then I saw how it hurt my family.

These weapons can kill you.

Yeah, that's why we need them.

Clark, you're not the enemy.

Yeah, but I could have been.


people like me, without these weapons...

we're indestructible.

And if something like this
should happen again

without a plan in place,
without a fail-safe...

that would be the end.

Well done, John. A perfect recreation
of the original design.

I believe Natalie would be proud.

Given that your suit is complete,

and all enemy combatants
are now in custody,

may I inquire
as to our new mission parameters?

Still working that out.

Perhaps another attempt
to see your sister?

You know, you're getting kind of pushy.

I am programmed
to anticipate your needs.

Optimum psychological health

requires the formation
of interpersonal relationships.

Hey, uh, sorry. I just got home
and heard voices, so...


you really built this thing
from scratch, huh?

Pretty amazing.

You're a gearhead?

I don't know what I am.

Always been an athlete, you know, so...

Me, too.

You know, you can be
more than one thing.

Perhaps, you could tell Jonathan
a tale from your own upbringing?

Would you please just shut down?


Why aren't you in school?

This better be about the statement.

Not now, Lois. It's important.

- What's wrong?
- It's about Clark.

I'm worried about him.

Hey, Soph.

Mom, is anything wrong?

What do you mean, sweets?

Dad asked me
if I wanted to try another school.

No, baby. Daddy was just asking.

Hold on, okay?


Oh. Hey, Kya.


Jon, It's not like you
to break the rules.

I know. I know, but there's this girl
and she's a junior,

and I don't know, I thought
she was out of my league, you know?

You skipped class to impress a girl?

Well, that's the thing.

She just wanted to talk
about what happened.

Like, Edge, powers, Grandpa.


I mean, I didn't say anything.

We need to talk.

Yeah, we do. Jon skipped class.


Go upstairs.
I will deal with you later.

We can talk about him after we talk
about what I want to talk about.

You told my dad to keep 7734?

I did. I did.
I should have talked to you first.

Jonathan, upstairs!

- After everything we've been through...
- I know, I know.


Because it's the right thing to do.

This isn't about Edge, is it?
This is about you.

Lois, I almost killed John Irons.

But you didn't.

Yeah, but what if I had?
I mean, who would have been next?

Look, I swore to protect
the people of this planet.

So far, I've done a decent job.

But what if I was to be tricked
or corrupted...

That will never happen...

Except that it just did.

The people of this world deserve
the means to defend themselves

from the one thing
I can't save them from. Me.

If weapons like that exist,

then the wrong people
will get their hands on them.

And then what do we do?

Not enough to skip school.
This one has to go get arrested.

They're both acting out.

We'll give them a punishment.

- I'll drive.
- Lois, about the other thing...

What? I'm right, you're wrong.

I understand why you would think that.

Do you know what it was like
when my dad gave John Henry Irons

the go-ahead to fire the missile?

I'm sorry.

Then why risk it happening again?

- I told you because...
- Because it's the right thing to do.

What does that even mean anymore, Clark?

I lied to Chrissy today
to protect our family.

I broke my sacred role as a journalist.

We both play fast and loose
with journalistic integrity

from time to time.

When it comes to keeping your secret,
not the stories we investigate.

Yeah, but Edge is my brother.

He's Kryptonian.
This story is different.

Why should I be okay with the military
having a secret code to kill my husband?

Given the countless psychos
who want you dead,

it just feels like a really bad idea.

- Lois, will you please just listen?
- No!

There's nothing you can say
that I want to hear,

and now I'm angry,

and I feel sorry for yelling at you,
but I also have to stay angry,

so that I can scare
the hell out of Jordan.

So why don't you just stay here,

and let's just both
take a moment to think

and then we can talk about this later
after I bail our son out of jail.

What were you doing?

I can't believe you guys.

I can explain.

I'm so sorry.

Lana, and you must be Jordan's mom?

Kya, what's going on?

They were caught trespassing
out by Atlas Pond.

Are you kidding me?

When we were their age,
we used to go there all the time.

I don't know what to tell you
other than it's private property.

Deputy, if Lana didn't even know
it was private property,

then I'm sure the kids didn't either.

And I promise you, there's a world
of just unimaginable horror

that awaits my son for skipping school.

The same goes for Sarah.
This will never happen again.

Just because she let you two go with
a warning doesn't mean it didn't happen.

- Mom...
- Don't talk yet. I've been saying,
the Cushings are the real problem.

Honestly, Sheriff, I was suspicious
of Morgan Edge from day one.

But you know Kyle. He just pushed
and pushed until he finally got his way.

I mean, honestly,

we're the real victims here.

And who knows what kind of perks
they got from Lana's special little job.

- Zero perks.
- Lana...

We got lied to just like everyone else.

Just like you lied when you said
you were going to help us.

Why don't you and I
go talk somewhere else?

You said you were going to
set the record straight,

and all you're doing
is covering your ass,

so you don't feel the blowback
come election time.

I'm doing what's best for the town.

You're doing what's best for you
at the expense of my family.

And for that, shame on you.

You okay?

I don't know what I am right now.

- I feel so many things.
- Mostly anger, right?

So much anger.

- Have you ever noticed...
- How punchable the Mayor's face is?

Yeah, I have.


You know, he's not the only one.

I mean, it's like this entire town
has turned their back on us.

They're just looking for
a way to move on.

Blaming you is easier
than blaming themselves.

Yeah, but it doesn't
make it hurt any less.

Smallville has always been there for me.

It's why I built my life around it.

And now, I'm wishing
I had a backup plan,

because I'm out there in the cold
with no nest egg,

and no connections anywhere else.

And I am worried about my family, Lois.

Especially when people like Mayor Dean
are out there controlling the narrative.

It's not right.

It's not right.

And it's not the same town
I used to love.

Go to your room.
We'll talk about this later.


They let them go with a warning.

That's good.

Jon's still up in his room.

- We need to talk about...
- We should talk about...

You first.

Clark, you are wrong.

Lois, we have to have a plan.

Why? Because your mind is corruptible?

We have proof now.

Your heart is stronger than your mind.

No. You don't understand.

Clark, I'm all about backup plans,
but this one comes with major risks

and for a reason
you've proven isn't a threat.

That's not entirely true.

What are you talking about?

My dad taught me control.

I have been controlling my powers
every second of every day

for almost 40 years.

But when Zod took over,

for the first time,

I felt what it was like to let go.

To really let go.

Clark, those were Zod's emotions,
not yours.

I know, but I felt it.

It was me.

And I'm not saying
I want this to be true,

I wish it wasn't...

but it felt good.

It felt really, really good.

And that feeling worries me.

If there is even the slightest chance

that I could be manipulated again
with that desire to let go...

the world needs a way to stop me.

I don't think that will ever happen.

- Lois...
- But...

on the off chance I'm wrong,

and if this will make you feel better,
then fine.

Let's have a fail-safe.

But there is no way in hell
I'm trusting the DOD with this.

Then we just have to
find someone we can.

You wanna run that by me again?

- I know it's a lot to ask.
- You want me,

and only me,
to have the capability to kill you?

Should it become necessary, yes.

But I know who you are now.

I know, but this is about
situations we can't predict.

And you've seen firsthand
the devastation I can cause this world.

I'm trying to move on, remember?

Now that killing you
isn't my singular purpose in life.

And it shouldn't be.

John, I have no doubt
you'll find your way in this world,

but I believe you can do that
and be 7734's gatekeeper.

You came here to protect
this world from me.

That's what I'm asking you to do.

I'll call Sam.

Wasn't expecting to see you.

I owe you an apology.

Kind of busy, Lois.

You were right. I lied.

My dad is hiding something
and I can't betray his trust.

This story is bigger
than you or your dad.

We have a responsibility to the people.

This town is falling apart.

Believe me, I know.

People are tearing each other down,
looking for someone to blame

and if we do nothing,

we're as responsible for its downfall
as anyone else.

If only there was something we could do.

I can't write this story.

I'm too close to it to be objective.

But you can.

It's a statement from your dad.

He wouldn't go on the record
about everything,

but this is enough
to tell most of the story

and to focus the blame where it belongs.

On Morgan Edge.

- This was really messed up, Lois.
- I know.

I hope that I can earn back your trust.

I'm not alone?

All this time,
I've been without anyone of my kind.

Alone, Father, for years.

How could you not tell me?

He's of no consequence to you.

He's from the House of El. He's my...

He's your brother.
Yes, by bloodline only.

Pathetic treasonous bloodline.

He's become a hero, Father.

He is nothing!

I'll find another way.

You will do no such thing.

When I find the Eradicator,
I'll show him what we can do.

- Tal, no.
- I'll make myself known to him,

give him what he's been here
without as well.

Tal, listen to me.

I don't need to
do this your way, Father.

You are going to ruin the resurrection.

I'm not,
I'm just not going to die to do it!

My way is the only way!

Tal... Tal?

Tal, what are you doing? No!

Your way is the only way.

Goodbye, Father.

I don't really know
what I'm supposed to say here.

You can start with an apology.

I'm sorry the cops got all aggro
about us going to the lake.

You know, forget the trespassing, Sarah.

You ditched school.

That's unacceptable.

I'm supposed to sit in class
while people talk about me?

About you?

Everyone blames us about Edge
and I'm over it, okay?

So please just ground me.

I'm not exactly dying to go out there
in this sad little town

with these vindictive,
close-minded garbage people.

You know what?
Let's just, um, call it a night.

Start fresh tomorrow.

- Okay?
- Yeah.



You should have seen
the look on Mayor Dean's face.

He knows he was wrong.

Yeah, well,
he's got to cover his own hide.

It's only gonna get worse, isn't it?

Maybe you're right, Kyle.

Maybe we just pack up and get
as far away from here as we can.

We're gonna be all right.

Do you have any idea
how much trouble you're in?

You can't just skip school.

I don't care
if you're mooning over Sarah Cushing

or coming home
to build robots with John Henry.

- Mooning?
- It's a warsuit.

Look, guys, you've been through a lot.

You want to blow off some steam,
I get it.

But there are rules.

And you do not disrespect your teachers

by ignoring the work
they put into your classes.

We're sorry.

Really sorry.

You want to try saying that
a little more convincingly, please.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

Thank you.

Now things are finally calming down.

So when you're done being grounded,

you guys can go back
to being normal teenagers.

And believe me,
small towns are actually a lot of fun.

All right. Go to bed.



"Small towns are a lot of fun."

Just trying to give them
something to look forward to.

Sounds vaguely provocative.

Oh, does it?

And you're still not
sold on small towns?

I'm sold on my small town guy.

Hmm. I know that.

How long ago did this start?

A couple minutes, sir.

Send in a team to check it out.

- His vitals?
- They're gone, sir.

We're not registering anything.

Maximize that Kryptonite field.

Get them out of there.


He's gone.

Where the hell did he go?

- You had one mission...
- One mission.

And you veered from it
because you are weak.


You shall not veer from it any longer.

Go and complete
what you were sent here to do.

- Become the Eradicator.
- Become the Eradicator.

- Become the Eradicator.
- Become the Eradicator.

- Become the Eradicator.
- Become the Eradicator!

Or know that you are the sole reason

Krypton was lost.
