Daily Planet. Imra makes herself useful by clearing off the contents of a nearby desk. Rokk lays the unconscious Chloiac on it. Garth is holding a very sharp silver dagger. [A knife? All their powers, and they're going to stab her? - Z] Rokk offers to do it. He usually carves the Thanksgiving Roboturkey. Garth says he took an oath when he joined the Legion. To cut up chicks whenever possible. "And I'm gonna honor that. For once." What's all this "For once" business? Don't bring shit up if you're never gonna explain it to us non-comic book geeks, all right? Garth hesitates. His hand shakes. Rokk looks at Imra. She shakes her head. Maybe next time we won't bring a total pussy with us from the future. Rokk says it's all right. He takes the knife. He starts to bring it down, but Clark is suddenly there and grabs his hand. If they both have the same powers, isn't it likely Clark wouldn't have been able to stop the swing? [All Rokk has is the power of magnetism. Like Magneto! - Z] "What are you doing?!" Clark asks.

Garth says Brainiac did that. Rokk reminds Clark that the host has to die to shut Brainiac down. "Does your Legion have any principles?" Clark demands. I hope so. Didn't you inspire it? Clark says that if they have a code, the number one rule should be, "Do not kill. EVER!" Clark asks them to help. "There's a human being inside there!" he tells them. Clark thinks they can do it. Imra, leaning in close to Chloiac, says "Kal's right. Chloe's there. I can hear her." [What, they didn't check? - Z] We hear a tiny whining sound that doesn't at all resemble Chloe's voice. Rokk blinks his eyes hard. He exhales.
