Synopsis for "Brainiac, Part II: Hide and Seek"

Deep in space, Brainiac coasts in his ship. His computer seeks a Kryptonian. Back at the Fortress, Supergirl assures Superman that this isn't really Brainiac, that she saw Brainiac probes take the one true Kandor, and that no one has seen the real Brainiac. Agitated, she burns the probe, upset at seeing Brainiac again.

In Smallville, Clark talks with his parents, who naturally fear for him but trust him to do the right thing. Clark spends time with Pa and they talk about what it was like growing up.

At the Daily Planet, Clark takes guff from Lombard, who then teases Jimmy and Ron.

Superman forms a ship and flies deep into space, seeking Brainiac and studying findings by Non about Brainiac on Krypton. He finds probes attacking a planet, and finds himself unable to stop the "bottling" process.

A missile blows apart the system, and Superman is left unconscious. Brainiac's ship pulls him in.
