Up on the roof, Clark finds a pensive Zod staring out over the rising sun he thought he'd never see again. I'm just glad it's not that damned full moon again. "I trust Lois is well," Zod says. "Thanks to you," Clark says. "You saved her." Zod admits Lois protected him, as well. "I can see why you care for her," he says. OK, show? The Clark/Lois romance seems a lot more natural when you don't have someone telling us every week how great it is. Just a hint. Clark asks Zod how he's feeling. "Like a changed man," Zod says. He talks about his paradigm shifting now that his enemy has become his savior. Clark makes a mental note: "Look up 'pair-a-dime' later." Zod stares at Clark for a long while, then asks how he knew the blood would cure him. "I didn't," Clark admits. "It must have healed you because you're Kryptonian like me." Too bad you didn't think to try that trick when your Kryptonian father was dying. Zod makes a show of wincing and touching his side where he was shot. Clark asks if he's still in pain. Zod explains he's not made of steel like Clark. "You'll be better than new in no time," Clark says. "I am better," Zod says, "because I was wrong about you." Zod speaks very softly and earnestly about how he now realizes Clark cares about the Kandorians. He can trust Clark now, he says. Clark smiles and goes all United Colors of Benetton on him: "Together, we'll make sure our people can call Earth their new home." Zod chuckles and extends his arm. Clark clasps it in a sort of brotherhood handshake. The plaintive wail of a police car siren reaches them and they part ways, Zod, clutching at his side again as Clark zips away.
