Kal-El is running from the Kandor security forces because they (and he) believe that he has murdered an entire family. He has aligned himself with the rebel group of aliens and they're on the run. They take him to one of the holding areas for non-Kryptons on Kandor and it's like a slum. He asks the rebels to come with him to Earth, they don't believe him until they see the portal open back to the Fortress. He warns them that their physical structure won't be stable in his universe but they say they're going to do it anyway.
Meanwhile, Lyla has broken through the Metropolis. She believes she's a god now and that everyone should simply bow down to her. She's disgusted and disappointed with what she sees. Finally, she decides to go after the one thing that will hurt Superman: Lois.
