Hearts of the Fathers

[sinister music playing]
- Clark!
- [gasps]
Lois! Jimmy!
I know why you sent me here.
You tried to conquer this planet.
My home. I won't let that happen.
[speaking Kryptonian]
You don't understand
[in English] I'm not like you.
I'll never be like you.
And if you come to Earth again,
I'll be here to stop you.
[speaking Kryptonian] Wait!
I'd never hurt you
[in English] My son.
[opening music playing]
Clark, thank you so much
for hosting me and my dad for Thanksgiving.
I'm so excited
to spend it with you.
Jimmy comes over
every other year.
I'm bringing yams this year.
- It's gonna be yam-tastic.
- [Lois] It's going to be weird.
Even at his best, my dad is
a lot.
Is it too late
to cancel Thanksgiving?
Look, you heard Jimmy.
It's going to be yam-tastic.
I have a favor to ask you guys.
I need your help
finding The General.
- What?
- The guy who kidnapped
and then tried to kill you.
Look, I've seen
what my people will do
to this planet
if they get the chance.
I have to keep Earth
safe from Krypton,
and he's the only person
who has the answers.
I'll, uh
I'll go get our usual.
You're sure he hasn't seen the terrifying,
Evil-Superman Data Sphere?
No! And you are gonna help me
make sure he never does.
Clark's in a bad space.
Seeing that
It would destroy him.
I just hate secrets.
We said no more secrets!
[Clark] What are you guys
talking about?
[chuckles nervously] Nothing. Just about
how excited we are to go to work.
Uh, hey, hey, Chief, uh
Lois, what did you do?
Just the usual stuff.
[Perry] You.
You three have brought me more trouble
than every other intern we've ever had.
Do you know how we deal
with this type of behavior at the Daily Planet?
[Lois reading]
"City saves Superman.
by Lois Lane, Clark Kent,
and Jimmy Olsen."
That's us! [gasps]
You're terrible interns,
so the only thing to do
was to make you reporters.
- [others cheering]
- [man] Hurray!
[woman 1] Oh, yeah!
[woman 2] Congratulations.
[man] Hurray! All right.
[man] You did it.
[man] Whoo-hoo!
Okay, okay,
mushy-feelings time is over.
Half of you have deadlines,
and the other half
are leaving early today.
So let's move, people!
Mr. White, if you need
anything, we could stay. [chuckles]
Lane, go.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
But I need you to stay, Olsen.
We need to talk
about Flamebird.
[bird cawing]
Lois Lane,
we are so proud of you.
And you brought fruit?
Our article.
You had it framed?
It's only the nicest thing
I've ever read.
By the most talented,
heroic lady I know.
Well, you know that Clark's
the one who saved the city.
And he couldn't have
done it without you.
Clark, peel potatoes.
I'm in the turkey zone.
[Martha] Thank you.
And not just for the fruit.
After his powers showed up,
Clark was so scared
of hurting someone that
he kept himself at a distance.
But now he has you with him.
So again, Lois Lane,
thank you.
[kisses] I'll help you
find The General.
Thank you, Lois.
[cell phone ringing]
[Lois gasps]
Oh, no, no, no.
Dad's here.
What do I do? What do I say?
We need a plan.
Let's hide and make one.
Lois, come on.
What's the worst
that could happen?
He's rude to you,
and Ma, and Pa,
- and then everybody hates me.
- Hey.
Nothing can change the way
I feel about you.
Not even your grumpy
- Dad.
- Hmm.
[tense music playing]
[gasps and growls]
Happy Thanksgiving!
Dad, this is my boyfriend.
Clark, meet my Dad.
Uh, hello.
[stammers] Nice to meet you,
Mr. Lane.
- [chuckles nervously]
- Please. Call me General Lane.
[door creaks and closes]
Who's ready for
hors d'oeuvres? Hmm?
We've got a cheese ball
from the Kents,
and sliced pears
from the Lanes.
Thank you, Lois.
you look familiar, Kent.
- Have we met before?
- Nope. [chuckles nervously]
Just have one of those faces.
How do you spend your time?
Any hobbies?
Uh, Sam, you must be
so proud of Lois.
She's smart, hardworking,
and successful.
She's a Lane.
It's what we expect.
What are you doing
with your life, Kent?
Actually, Sam,
Clark does a lot.
Just the other day,
he saved the entire
Store! Saved money
at the store!
Ma, we should help
in the kitchen.
Do not leave me here with
[Clark] Be right back!
Ma, Pa
Turkey's not ready yet!
Uh, what would you do
if let's say you had an enemy?
I'd turn him into a friend.
But if someone
really hated you
Are you talking
about Lois's dad?
Aw, he's not the
friendliest man,
but you can't hate your
girlfriend's father, Clark.
No matter what he says
about your perfect son.
[clock ticking]
[The General] Thank you.
For spending
Thanksgiving with me.
I'm glad you could make it.
[chuckles softly]
I've been meaning
to introduce you to Clark,
and the Kents are so nice.
Mrs. Kent said
something about success.
I had my first
article published.
[chuckles nervously]
Fan of Superman?
Everyone loves him.
[chuckles softly]
Not everyone.
You haven't read it, have you?
You never read what I write.
Lois, I've been busy.
Yeah, with what?
It's classified.
Oh, yeah. Right.
[door creaks]
Well, that was a productive turkey strategy meeting.
But we'll just leave Pa to do
whatever it is he's doing.
I wish I could remember
where I've seen you before.
Spend any time in the military?
No, sir. I don't really have
the constitution for, uh
- The applied sciences?
- Just a journalism degree, sir.
[speaking slowly]
Do you always wear glasses?
[door creaks open]
Hey everybody, I have news!
- [Clark laughing]
- [Lois and Martha] Jimmy!
[Lois] This is my Dad,
Dad this is Jimmy!
Let me show you the kitchen.
Lois's dad is The General.
The General who
tried to kill me.
What? Have you told Lois?
How am I supposed
to do that?
I hate Lois's father.
She is as sweet as apple pie,
but that man is
A lot.
Uh Ahhh!
Don't tell anyone, Jimmy.
But this Turkey is refusing
to come to temp.
Do you have something
to tell me?
I don't know who you are.
- Jimmy!
- Hey, Jimmy.
- Just a couple of
- Nope!
[door slams]
The "Jimmy gets pulled into drama" portion
of the evening is over!
Clark, you are going
to tell Lois about her dad.
Then you are both going to thank me
for my emotional maturity,
and for bringing your stuff,
which you left at the Planet!
Jimmy, give that to me, now!
[device beeping]
- Wait, Clark
- What is this?
The League of Lois Lanes
had this file on Superman.
And I-I didn't know
what was on it
Clark, this isn't you.
Lois, I don't I can't
Argh! [gasps]
Clark. Clark. Clark!
What's going on?
[speaking Kryptonian] The poison is here?
[Lois] Clark!
- Clark, what's going on?
- [groaning]
The rock!
[ground rumbling]
Mr. Kent. Mrs. Kent. I know
this sounds unbelievable,
but we are standing at Ground Zero
of an alien invasion.
They're picking up
where they left off 22 years ago.
Wait, Dad,
how do you know about the
I need you all
to evacuate, now!
Lane here.
Deploy all assets
to my location, ASAP!
I have eyes on Nemesis Omega.
And I'm carrying out
termination orders.
- Be right back.
- [whooshes]
- [groans]
- Son
I have to make sure everyone gets away
before I deal with the ship.
Deal with the ship? How
How are you going to do that?
It's, it's, it's huge and
Our son is Superman, Jonathan.
That's his ship up there.
We just have to trust him.
[sinister music playing]
[both scream]
[intense music playing]
Lois? Where are you
[grunts and squeals]
[powering down]
[static buzzing]
[engine roaring]
Repeat. I need backup.
Nemesis Omega has landed!
- Lois.
- It's you. You're The General.
- Lois, what are you doing here?
- Task Force X.
Nemesis Omega.
Zero Day.
How do you know those words?
The one who kidnapped Superman. It's
It's you. It's all been you!
There's so much
more to this. I
Get behind me!
[Superman grunting]
[Superman grunts]
Jimmy went that way.
Lois, stop!
[dramatic music playing]
how did you do all this?
The rock that hurts Clark
hurts the robots, too.
We can take out
the rest with this.
- No, not again.
- What is that?
This is what happened
on Zero Day.
I have to stop it.
The Sphere.
No! I'm not letting you
sacrifice yourself to save us.
That rock is the only thing
that can destroy my ship and close the portal.
It'll kill you, Clark.
I love you and I can't lose you.
[melancholy music playing]
- Wait, no, no, no.
- [whooshing]
Come back.
[dramatic music playing]
[straining and grunting]
- [dramatic music stops]
- [pants]
[tense music playing]
[tense music
increases in tempo]
[speaking Kryptonian] Follow, to the heart!
Do what you must, quickly!
[Superman grunting]
[coughs and groans]
[electricity crackling]
[electricity buzzing]
[both gasp]
[speaking Kryptonian]
You brought the Kryptonite here.
[in English]
I had to stop your invasion.
I had to protect
my family.
[Jor-El speaking in English]
Kal-El. My son.
[dramatic music playing]
[groans softly]
[groans softly]
Stop! [panting]
I need you to get out
of the way, Lois.
So you can murder the man
who just saved us?
I have orders to kill
the alien invader
- who caused all this.
- He didn't cause this.
- He's the one
- I know, you think he's a hero, Lois.
But there are things
you do not know.
[voice shaking]
I am doing this to protect you, Lois.
But I don't need you
to protect me, Dad.
I need you to listen.
That man risked everything
to protect our world.
If you care about me
at all, let him go.
[woman over radio] General?
General, what's your situation?
This is Lane.
[tense music playing]
False alarm.
Stand down.
[woman over radio]
What? General?
[chuckles softly]
[chuckling in relief]
Dad. Thank you. I
[birds chirping]
The turkey is still
not to temp.
Great. Dinner is served.
Oh, wait. James,
you said you had
something to share.
Oh, right. I sold Flamebird
to the Daily Planet for $5.6 million.
I'm super rich now.
[bird caws in distance]
Pass the yams, please.
- [Lois] Jimmy!
- [Martha] Pass the yams, indeed.
[all chattering excitedly]
[Jimmy] They are my favorite.
[intense music playing]
[sinister music playing]
[Brainiac] Ah. Unexpected.
I have found a new
planet for you.
They have destroyed our ships
and closed our portals.
It is a planet in rebellion.
[Kryptonian warrior] Let them rebel.
It does not matter.
In the end,
they will kneel.
[closing music playing]
