With the aid from Skeets who causes a distracting for the group they move to the Legion safe house #47 where Clark now disguised in customary 31's attire explains that he was transported by the flight ring, which leaves Brainiac 5 and Garth puzzled as they have no knowledge to Protocol 6 and it wasn't enacted by any Legionnaire.

At EarthGov holding facility he informs his superiors about wanting to transfer his prisoner off-world to a more secure location. He also tries to convince them that the Legion is a problem to their war because of the many non-Earth members of the team. They respond that allowing their eclectic assortment of "xenos" to reside on Earth keeps United Planets funding coming in and that also the Legion tries to stop the war with New Krypton not to fuel it. He then informs them about a Legionnaire with the Mark of El on his chest who attacked his men earlier stating that the Legion is collaborating with new Krypton and that it is only a matter of time before he comes to free the other Kryptonian he is holding hostage.

Clark comments that he didn't even noticed his ring or his cousin were missing and apologises to her but he also questions Kara how "Supergirl" was involved in ther war between Earth and New Krypton. She tells him that when she arrived in the future she was welcomed by Brainiac-5 and the Legion, which launched a diplomatic mission when they discovered Argo, the lost Kryptonian colony, but was sabotaged by someone from EarthGov and that event was the start of the war. Kara also reveals that she was not an actually a prisoner but a spy for the Kryptonians.

Booster asks Brainiac 5 to fix his Legion ring.

In the Legion safe house, Booster Gold asks Brainiac-5 to help him with his broken flight ring but Brainiac-5 seems not to appreciate Booster as a person and doesn't believe that he had ever hard-earned something in his life. Booster actually confirms that by revealing that he stole his Legion ring from a museum in the 22nd century, where he was working, and that it was actually Superman's ring he stole. Brainiac-5 also confirms that except Kal-El's Legion ring Booster Gold has also stole his faithful intelligence, Skeets, and his wrist blasters. Booster Gold defends himself by saying that he had to "borrow" those things in order to become the hero he is now and asks Brainiac-5 to check the Legion's historical records so he can prove that he is a superhero too, like Superman. Brainiac-5 searches the records and finds no data on "Booster Gold", so Booster asks him to try "Goldstar", his previous alias, believing that he might return to it but Brainiac-5 can't find anything again. So Skeets suggests he might went under his civillain identity for posterity so Brainiac-5 searches on "Michael Jon Carter" but the only thing he can find is that he was a player in college football in the 25th century who was ejected from the sport because of gambling. Booster tries to find an answer on why there is no record of him but Brainiac-5 says that he might never succeeded to become more than a "fake" hero. An insulted Booster gets out of the safe house but Brainiac-5 follows and apologizes to him, saying that he shouldn't had been so harsh on Booster considering his past crimes as Brainiac. Then he says to Booster that maybe he shouldn't think he needs to have his blasters or his flight ring to be a hero and he should try to make a difference without superpowers taking for example Clark, who had succeeded to be a great hero even when he had lost his powers. Booster then asks him again if he will ever fix his ring and Brainiac-5 gives him a look of disappointment.

On New Krypton, Chancellor Pa-Vel escorts Superman in the Hall of Scion in which there are multiples statues of Kryptonians who had contributed to Argo's evolution for over a thousand years. Cancellor also mentions that Clark liberated their ancestors from the tyranny of General Zod and that is why every Kryptonian on New Krypton calls him "Liberator". Chancellor also explains to Superman a bit about their religion, how proud enlightened people they are and that their war is more about that despite the violence. He also reveals that the main cause of the war is to recover the body of their God. A confused Clark questions him about his revelation knowing that the God they worship is Rao, Krypton's red sun but Chancellor says that Rao was worshiped only by their ancestors and they now worship a new one, showing him the statue of their Goddess and also revealing to him that Clark actually knew her.

Superman arrives on the scene and says to Kara that she doesn't have to say anything, betraying the Kryptonians' trust because he already knows everything. He reveals to Supergirl and Cosmic Boy that the war is not about politics but actually for another, more religious reason. The Kryptonians actually want to recover Faora's body, whom they worship as their Goddess because of her tale that was told by Argo's settlers and eventually became myth.

Clark also says that he made a throne for himself, to seat after he had conquered the world, in the center of the structure facing a pit where he had kept Faora's dead body frozen inside a crystalline cube. Then Kara asks again why he put the throne facing the pit and Clark assumes that that he did it because of guilt. After that Clark and Kara fly down the pit and visit Faora's body where Clark explains that the Kryptonians believe that her child was a sacred thing, because as they believe that it may have been the answer on why the Kryptonians had powers under yellow sun and not red.
