On Wegthor, Jax and Val are having a debate. Jax has taken the Machiavellian route, whereas Val wants to wage a Ghandian revolution – without the bloody murder. The rebels defect from Jax, and fall in line with Val. Jax has been usurped!
Nyssa has brought Zod the Codex. She's rigged it so it responds to her voice, and her voice alone, and she won't say mum until she sees her kid. So Zod brings him to her, she orders all the guards out of the room, and activates it.
Seg and Nyssa are flying over the Outlands when the skimmer starts to fail. With Brainiac's help, Seg is able to regain control of the failing vehicle. But at a cost: Brainiac is starting to take even greater hold over his mind.
A quick armistice is called, and Jax hands the boys a tiny little bomb that they can use to blow up the service elevator, trap the Sagitari, and block Zod's delivery chain. Will valorous Val go through with it, though?
The weapons engineer has prepared the weapon with the Codex, but has a caveat for Zod: There was a failsafe installed on the Codex, and might prove troublesome for someone looking to use it for destruction. Zod don't give a damn.
