Lair of the Prophets. I don't know what it's actually called. It's lair-like and Darkseid's prophets are there. Oliver kneels before DeSaad, Granny and Godfrey. "I've done what you asked," he says. "They won't know Apokolips is coming." Because everyone is too busy navel-gazing to look up at the damned sky! Granny is positively giddy. They have just one last mission for him. DeSaad gives him a ring made from gold kryptonite and says it will "disarm the bringer of light who threatens to vanquish the darkness." Remember this for later because it won't be important at all.
Cemetery. Clark visits Jonathan's grave. "I never wanted to say goodbye," Clark says. "Then don't," says dead, hallucinatory Jonathan behind him. Clark is suddenly filled with doubt. It's a serious scene, and not badly done, but Clark saying he's buried his insecurities is unintentionally humorous, given how much stroking his ego needs every week. "I'm so close," he says earnestly. "I know who I'll become -- I've seen it." He talks about Lois wanting him to let her go and Martha wanting him to hold onto the past. Jonathan offers him a platitude from beyond the grave (two feet beyond, to be precise) but since Clark can't actually hear him, it doesn't do much good. Clark is still insistent that he needs to stand on his own. He touches Jonathan's headstone. "I miss you so much." Jonathan lays his hand on top of Clark's. "Then let me be there for you." Clark doesn't feel it, which is just as well, because he'd probably super-poop himself in shock. He says neither of his daddies can help him anymore. "As much as I value everything you've given me, I need to go where neither of you can guide me in order to become the hero the world needs me to be." Notice how he's always talking about what the world needs? He makes being a hero sound like a burden, a task placed on his shoulders. He doesn't make it sound like something he actually wants. Superman is such a downer in this story. Clark looks up and sees Oliver walking toward him. Ghost Dad is gone. Oliver and Clark talk about all the crap everybody's already talked about. Letting go, not letting go. The past, the future. Clark wonders if Lois is part of the past he needs to leave behind. "What if heroes aren't destined to love?" he asks the happily married hero in front of him. Oliver gives Clark a pep talk about how Clark helped him to become a hero. "No one can push me or lead me anywhere," Clark says. Remember this for later because it's totally not true. He moans and groans about not fitting in anywhere and somehow comes to the conclusion that maybe he needs to let go of Lois.
