We see Clark in a chamber surrounded by flashing blue light. It creates a prism effect. Jarnelle's voice says, "You disappoint me, my son." You said you would be home by midnight, and it is clearly 1:15 AM! What does the word "Curfew" mean to you? He says Clark can't question his destiny on this planet. Clark asks if Jarnelle was trying to show him what would happen if he hadn't existed here. Jarnelle says that the disc in Clark's hand revealed the consequences of his misguided intentions. "I was forced to show you the error of your ways." It's always worst-case-scenario with you, isn't it, dad? Mr. Dramatic-El! He says he sent Clark to Earth for one purpose, and it can't be taken lightly. "Send me back!" Clark says. Jarnelle tells Clark he has to stop Brainiac from changing history and taking Clark's life. "You cannot fail. This time, there will be no second chances," he says. Hear that, Clark? Don't fuck up!
Clark suddenly appears in front of Chloe, back at the barn. She asks what just happened. She hugs him. She says she thought he was gone forever, but now he's perfectly fine. Clark grabs Chloe by the arms and tells her there's still time. "I have to make it right," he says. Make it sparkly. "I have to go to Krypton," he says. Take a jacket! Oh, you already have one. Good, then.
Floating out in space, we see a giant, glowing red sun and a golf ball-looking small blue planet emerge from behind.
On Krypton... the place is falling apart. We're in a chamber that looks like the Fortress, but with green lights and lots of fog. Brainiac is carrying Baby-El, who is crying. He places the baby gently on a glowing surface. He sure is taking his time altering the course of history. Does he need a reboot? "It's time to sleep," he says. The baby, wrapped in a yellow blanket, continues to cry. Brainiac raises a gnarly, black spike above his head. He says not every boy grows up to be a hero. The baby cries some more as Kara appears and tries to grab at the spike. Brainiac backhands her in the face and she flies about 20 feet. There's lots of flashing of lights and crashing. Kara's lip is bloodied. Slowly, Brainiac says, "Kal-El will die on Krypton! And now you will share his fate." Any moment now... just give me some time. This operating system status bar needs to move all the way to 100 percent before Brainiac can carry it out. "I won't let that happen," Clark says, suddenly showing up behind Kara. Clark steps forward.
