SoFine at the lecture hall. Clark, desperate, comes in and tells SoFine that he'll do anything to save his mother. Anything? Take off your shirt, farmboy. SoFine says there's one option, but that he wouldn't recommend it. What's your stance on ice dildos, Clark? Clark asks what it is. SoFine sighs. He says that Jarnelle is still Clark's only link with his past. "Just tell me what it is!" Clark snaps. You impatient ass! SoFine says that the only way to save MamaKent is to destroy the Fortress of Solitude. You must make it into a Fortress of Exploditude. SoFine explains calmly that if he destroys that, Jarnelle will lose his grip on MamaKent. Clark mutters that Jarnelle has only ever tried to ruin his life. SoFine says that was Jarnelle's M.O. on Krypton, too. Clark tries to look menacing. "I want him gone," he says. Dead! Head on a pike! Mincemeat! Horse in his bed! Unalive! SoFine sighs, but he's thinking, "I got this bitch right where I want him."
Kent home. A close-up of a family photo of Clark, MamaKent, and Bo. Bo, next to MamaKent, tells her that she's strong enough to get through this. She's got the glowing rock on her chest. Bo asks her not to give up. She nods. There's a knock at the door. Bo kisses her and gets up to answer. Chloe lets herself in before he can. She says she has to find Clark, and asks if he's with the professor. "Yeah, they went to the cave," Bo tells her. They took a picnic basket, some wine, French bread, and cheeses -- why do you ask? You don't think something funny's going on, do you? Chloe looks panicked and tells Bo that SoFine is not normal. Bo says he knows, and that SoFine is trying to help MamaKent. Chloe says she's not sure how helpful SoFine will be. She exits without another word, leaving Bo to think, "So...is my wife gonna die? Do you think? Maybe? No? All right, Chloe, we'll just talk later. Take it sleazy!"
The Caves of Contrivance. Clark and SoFine approach the Interstellar Poker Table of Instantaneous Travel and Backgammon. Clark sticks his octagonal key in the slot. Hey, they raised it to 50 cents! That sucks! Bright light glows, wrapping Clark and SoFine in it.
The ice fortress! "I'll tear this place down, piece by piece," Clark says. Yeah, you go do that. Way to be efficient. Clark asks where he should start. "Right here," SoFine says, holding out an ice dildo. Oh, you sick bastard. It's big and black and just Clark's type. SoFine says that when Clark puts it in the console (is that what the kids are calling it these days?), Jarnelle and his ice fortress will be no more. He'll die of shame. SoFine says that the self-destruction mechanism was Zod's, but that Zod was a man of peace and would only use it as a last resort. Clark holds the ice dildo like a vampire stake (yes, we get the reference) and says, "You'll never hurt my family again!" He jabs the black ice dildo into a chamber. So...big! Everything around Clark and SoFine glows red and begins to shake. Oh no, a blood vessel burst! Clark starts to feel weak all of a sudden. It's because SoFine is holding a piece of Kryptonite. "I couldn't have done it without you!" SoFine says, suddenly eeeeeevil. He claims that Clark is the only one who could affect the fortress. SoFine says that now that Clark's done his part, he's just a petty annoyance. I'll agree on the annoyance part. Clark figures out that SoFine, immune to the rock, must not be Kryptonian. SoFine says that he was built by a Kryptonian: "But I'm a whooooole lot smarter. You are free, General Zod!" SoFine backs Clark onto a flat surface and keeps the meteor rock held over our Big, Dumb Alien. SoFine says that Zod is the one true Kryptonian, and that Zod can finally rid Earth of the "scourge of humans." Aw, but what about Frisbee golf? That's kind of fun! Don't get rid of that! Clark, hobbled, figures out that everything SoFine said about Jarnelle was actually about Zod. Clark also figures out that it was SoFine who poisoned MamaKent. SoFine says that Clark's giving up his Kryptonian heritage for a single human makes him a pathetic disgrace. He lays the rock on Clark's chest and bids Clark goodbye. Yeah, just leave the hero alone, why don't you? A portal opens on one of the ice walls. SoFine greets Zod and welcomes him to his new home.
