Fortress. Zod has somehow managed to bring his soldiers to the Arctic. They don't have powers and he doesn't have the octagonal cave key, so maybe he carried them all there like some kind of overgrown stork with a leather fetish. Zod stands before his men, holding the lead-covered Kryptonite dagger from earlier. "Some of our brothers and sisters have defected," he says. "I'm afraid we've been betrayed, but we will prevail." He unsheathes the dagger and draws the glowing green blade across the palm of his hand. The soldiers exchange looks with each other like, "He done gone crazy!" Zod looks pukey, but he keeps cutting. He holds the wound over a crystal goblet and bleeds into it. The soldiers look increasingly worried and maybe a little grossed out. "The time has come to share in your birthright," he says. He holds up the cup of blood because just passing it around wouldn't have been dramatic enough. The screen dissolves into the closing credits. The end.
Stay tuned next week to see if the show can outdo this episode in terrible dialog, inconsistent characterization and hot, super-powered, manly bonding.
