WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
We're in the Outlands, and it's snowing! Surprise surprise. Seg is having flashbacks of Lyta, and Brainiac keeps showing up and killing the mood. If they're going to kill General Zod, they're going to need to ration their energy. Especially in this place.
Jax and Val are congratulating the troops on a job well done. But it's not over yet. They used up the short-range oxygenators on the last mission, but they still have the long-range ones that would enable them to get to the space elevator and take Wegthor.
On Wegthor, Adam expresses his doubts, concerns, fears to Val. In short, he has a feeling dump all over the guy. He's nervous that all his fiddling with the fabric of time has mucked up the universe (after all, he saw the future, and it don't look so good). Val says that may be, but they've got problems in the here and now to take care of. One step at a time, Strange.
After hashing out some hard feelings, General Zod shows Seg his hobby horse: the new Kandor. But Seg warns him against going too far: he's seen a future that is boring and harsh. Maybe they can work together?
While getting his mind checked out for possible traces of Brainiac, Seg sees Raika. She's had her marbles scrambled by Lyta, so she's in freak out mode. Seg uses his status to request to escort Raika back to a brain station to get her mind back in order.
After a failed attempt to unscramble Raika's mind, Seg gets the idea to rifle through the knocked-out technician's mind for clues. What he finds is haunting: General Zod gave the order to brainwash (and torture) Lyta until she became pliant to his will.
In the underground tunnels, Kem uses his former Sagitari status to deactivate a forcefield leading to the delivery elevator. Little does he know he's leading them all to their deaths. No good deed, right?
