Forager spots Victor laying on the ground and is shocked by what he sees. He takes an unconscious Victor back with him to the The Hub, waking Helga Jace, Brion and Tara. Victor then removes his hood, revealing that the Fatherbox tech is spreading, threatening to consume his body until he's nothing but a walking, talking Fatherbox.

His friends quickly get him into the medbay. Jace assures him that his condition seems stable, but Victor begs to differ. Superboy turns up with Dreamer of the Forever People. She scans Victor with her Motherbox, which diagnoses that his only hope is plugging him into Metron's Mobius Chair.

Suddenly, Tara and Forager call out that Violet has vanished, prompting Jace to step outside. They show Artemis a farewell letter from Halo. Artemis remarks that she knew something's been bothering Violet but she wouldn't open up to her. Jace admits that she had talked to Violet and never considered her running away. Tara then explains that Halo told her and Brion about Gabrielle's role in their parents' assassinations. Artemis argues that Violet should not feel responsible for Gabrielle's actions. She asks Jace to attend to Victor while she tries to find Violet. Forager and Tara decline to prepare for school, the former wanting to help Victor and the latter wants to make amends with Violet.

Dreamer advises Victor to avoid any form of stress, lease he aggravate his condition. She loans her Motherbox to Superboy and opens a boom tube back to New Genesis, admitting that Bear physically assaulted Metron, thus the presence of the Forever People might not be helpful. As soon as she's gone, Superboy has Motherbox open another boom tube to Metron's location. Jace ask Black Lightning to be careful and gives him a kiss. Superboy, Black Lightning and Forager then step through the boom tube.

Upon being told that her friend had run away and asked if she knew her whereabouts, Harper insists that she honestly knows nothing.

  • Aquaman leaves Taos at 06:18 MST and arrives in Poseidonis at 11:19 UTC+2. The latter timestamp is incorrect, because MST is seven hours behind UTC, meaning that the correct hour in Poseidonis would be 15:19 UTC+2.
  • The second shot of The Source Wall is the first establishing shot from an earlier scene, but flipped horizontally.

Partially answered questions

Unanswered questions


  • Forager: Forager's heard stories of the old Promethean gods. But Forager never thought Forager would actually stand on the face of Gog!
  • Jeff: We're standing on a god? And we were in his nose? Ugh!

  • Jeff: This is Metron. He can save Vic.
  • Metron: There has been a misunderstanding. I'm not here to save this "Vic". I am here to watch him die.

  • Metron: Death is commonplace.

  • Megan: You know, I've seen plenty of bruises on you, but... I've never seen any on Cullen before now.
  • Harper Row: Roughhousing, remember?
  • Megan: Maybe. Or maybe you weren't there to protect him because you were in jail. Up to this point, you've been the rock for Cullen to hide behind. But you're a kid, too. And the rock's cracking under this pressure. Ask yourself whom your silence is shielding now. Cullen... Or your father? I know you're afraid of what comes next. But I am going to be there to help you through it. And I believe it can be better than what you and Cullen have now.

(Long pause)

  • Harper Row: Our dad hits us.

  • Jeff: Look. I know I'm not your favorite human right now. But you mentioned Granny earlier. Is your Granny the same as our Gretchen Goode?
  • Metron: No. And yes.

    • Yes, but from beings far more stronger than Superboy. It's not that big of a deal but still.
    • What if Metron actually allowed himself to be taken out, while maintaining his image of "unaligned observer"?
