The Fortress. Hey, did they install some new track lighting? This place could use some nice curtains. "Welcome home, my son," Jarnelle says. Clark, douchey, says, "Home?" He says he wanted to learn more about his family and his destiny, but Jarnelle tore it all away. Jarnelle says he programmed the Fortress to self-destruct and remove Clark's powers if he posed a danger to the planet. That's a bit of revisionist history, isn't it? Clark, shamed, says that he was sent to Earth with no clear indication of what he would do with his powers. "You trusted me," he says. Clark says that when he betrayed Jarnelle's trust, his father was willing to sacrifice his only son to save the planet. He kind of digs that. Clark says he knows now what it means to protect people, not just family and friends. Jarnelle, impressed, says that Clark has made great progress. Clark says one thing hasn't changed: "You call me your son, but you treat me like your enemy." What? Fuck you, son! You're grounded! Now go lie down in this snake pit I've made for you. Clark says it's time for Jarnelle to stop punishing him and start trusting him again. Jarrnelle says that Clark has grown up and that his trials have matured him. Clark says his trials aren't over. There might be a whole other season left. Clark says that Brainiac isn't dead. In fact, dude is taking over his friend's life and he needs help. Jarnelle says he can translate the Kryptonian code in Chloe's brain back into human memories. Wow, Jarnelle is a programmer. He works for the Krypton branch of Microsoft. Jarnelle says that Brainiac, however, is highly unpredictable and still poses a threat to all of them. He says there's no way of knowing the outcome. He asks if Clark is willing to take that chance. Clark thinks about it, but doesn't answer. Maybe?
