The Fortress of Solitude suddenly looks like it's in the Middle East with the washed-out sepia filter. The eclipse is on the horizon. Lara pulls from the dildo rack the giant glowing dagger that was going to be used on Zod (at least I think it's the same one). Is this a dildo I see before me? Kara comes to her and apologizes for her father. She thought he had changed. Lara is forgiving. Lara says her husband always kept a dagger at home; he was a peaceful man, but would do anything to protect his family. She says she won't let Zor-El hurt her son. Kara wants to be the stabber. Lara says she'll defeat him. Kara insists, saying that if Lara fails, Zor-El will kill her. Yeah, let's just trust the fate of the universe to Miss Sweet Corn. Lara, stupidly, gives Kara the dagger. Kara promises she won't let Lara get killed.
Zor-El whooshes in. He says he's searched everywhere, but Clark's nowhere to be found. Well then you didn't look everywhere, did you? Lara doesn't believe that Zor-El really looked. Zor-El asks when Lara is going to trust him. Just then, Kara tries to stab her father in the neck. He grabs her wrist easily. "You would kill your own father?" he asks. No summer stock for you! The dagger falls aside. Kara wants to protect the Earth. She's learned that everything he told her about humans was wrong. They are good people, she says, and worth defending. Eh, we're OK, I guess. Zor-El can't believe this bullshit. He puts a chokehold on her. Lara tries to help Kara, but he tosses Lara across the room easily. Zor-El lifts Kara by the neck. He says, "You have no idea how much this pains me." It's like the time I was booed off the stage doing my one-man version of Camelot. Oh, how it stung! Zor-El says his duty surpasses his bond of blood. Ha ha, I said "duty." What a little scamp I am! Acting! SCIENCE! Kara says she can't breathe. That's the point of a choke, my dear. "Sorry, my angel," he says, touching her cheek. Does he have any other moves than the creepy cheek brush?
