Raya and Clark walk across the Phantom Zone. Clark is wrapped up like he's Lawrence of Agaybia. Clark asks why Raya hasn't used the super-secret exit. She says that it only opens for the House of El. Jarnelle kept it a secret in case anyone tried to imprison his family. Clark asks why he'd have to worry about that. Raya says that, like all great men, Jarnelle had enemies. Raya trips on something that hurts her foot. Someone comes up behind Clark and chokes him with a piece of cloth. Raya pulls a throwing star from her arm. She turns and is kicked by another enemy. Desert ninjas! Clark struggles. The two dudes grab him and pull off his headgear. "Kal-El," one of them says. Hey, what's up, Nam-Ek? He busts out a dagger. Raya tells him to wait. He asks why he shouldn't kill the person who sent him here. Raya says that Clark can open the gateway: "I was bringing him to you. He can free us all." Clark grits his teeth at her. You dumb-ass. Work with her, idiot.

Kent Farm. The cows are nowhere to be seen. Maybe they took a wild road trip to find Bo in some crazy computer-animated adventure. MamaKent has found the big plastic dagger in the barn. Is this a dagger she sees before her? Lady Macbeth, no! Papa Luthor, breathless, appears at the barn door. He calls MamaKent's name twice and rushes to her. No hug just yet. He's glad she's all right. "Your son," she starts to say, but Papa Luthor knows all about it, and knows what he has to do. He's all broken up about it. Now they hug, very passionately. Papa Luthor grabs him a handful of pretty red hair. Lana suddenly appears. She's only stealthy when she's sneaking up on the good guys. "Where's Clark?" she asks coldly. MamaKent, surprised, says that she doesn't know. Lana says that she heard Clark talking to Chloe about killing Lex, and didn't know what was going on. Papa Luthor asks where Lex went. Lana says that it's too late; he's got major powers and there's no one who can stop him. "There might be," MamaKent says. She looks down at the ice dildo/dagge and says she has to kill Zod with it. Or at least give him the best night of his life. Lana doesn't think MamaKent would get close enough to use it. "But I can," Lana says. "A lot of people are going to die if you don't let me do this." Putting the fate of the world in Lana's hands? Can't we do something just slightly smarter than that? Like putting Bush in charge, maybe? Lana says it's the only way. Papa Luthor and MamaKent, all scratched up and tired, have to agree. MamaKent hands over the dagger, and it goes right through Lana's hand, stabbing her painfully! Crap, I only wish. Lana moves her eyes and mouth around to signify the import of this moment.
