Synopsis for "The Hunt for Reactron - Part 3"
General Lane enforces Reactron's membership in Squad K. Despite their reluctance they take him in to hunt for Lois Lane. As Squad K leaves to find the "Metropolis Three", the team don't seem to notice they're being manipulated by Project 7734.
In the Metropolis Museum of Science & Industry Lois sneaks around for a secret rendezvous with Chris and Lana. Chris explains that Metallo and Reactron had impersonated them on film. Lois deduces her father created the video.
Kara decides she doesn't need to be a super bitch anymore and asks Thara what she meant about an unseen force corrupting Lana... Thara cuts her off and then spots that Kara is still blood bloom petal of which she has a matching one back from when they infected one another on Krypton. Apparently when Kara arrived on Earth, she had only the blood petal as a reminder of her home.
Suddenly, by some crazy coincidence, Squad K pass by Kara's window at the exact moment the two girls are staring right at it. It isn't after them though and suddenly they realize it must be homing in on Chris!
Lois promises to write a story if Chris can do her investigative journalism work for her. Lois though reminds them that Cat Grant, Morgan Edge and pretty much the whole planet has become very anti-Kryptonian but her analysis is cut short as Squad K arrive.
To save his mother and Lana, Chris draws them away flying to intercept Squad K. Kara and Thara arrive to help. Squad K refuse aid from Guardian and the Science Police and fly out to battle. Colonel Hazard is surprised when Reactron holds back, especially with his bloodthirsty nature. Reactron explains he can't participate in aerial combat as his upgrades have... downgraded that ability.
Instead Reactron leaps out of the SK carrier and lands on the ground. Gold Kryptonite beams blaze through the sky and cause devastating damage to the city. Hazard warns him to stop harming civilians and they give chase as Kara, Thara and Chris race into the sewers. When they see the destruction in the sewers they were blamed for they pause and it's long enough for them to be caught unaware. Chris however has a plan and while the trio converse in Kryptonian Chris offers the three of them up for surrender.
Immediately cuffed in Red Sun shackles they are led away by Squad K when Reactron arrives. He slaps a powerless Kara to the ground and receives another stern lecture from Hazard. Thara and Chris explain to Hazard what's been going on and just as Hazard realizes they've been tricked by Reactron and General Lane... Reactron executes Hazard and Squad K.
Now powerless they are helpless to the wrath of Krull!

Synopsis for "Captain Atom, Chapter Four"
Captain Atom wakes in a campsite belonging to a resistance group and is personally greet by a now friendly Jenny Blake and the mage and ogre, Danel and Aggaro, respectfully. But Captain Atom is very distressful of everything that is going on and want answers, especially from Blake who is now helping him.
Blake, who reveals herself to be none other than Natasha Irons, explains to Atom that she has been infiltrating the United States Army where she learned of Captain Atom being controlled by the said military and has been working with the magical world's resistance. Her 'capture' at the castle helps to shade her agenda. Natasha also reveals to Captain Atom that his capture by the military was committed by General Sam Lane and Project 7734, and was used by Lane as a sort of gifting exchange to Mirabai, The Forlorn, of her magical kingdom that Natasha and Atom are in, in securing a pact between them in order to have a magical force among 7734's black ops to combat Superman and New Krypton. Since then, Mirabai has been using the brainwashed Captain Atom to do her bidding in putting down those who oppose her, earning him the moniker "The Arrow of The Forlorn". Natasha notes that given Captain Atom's skin being highly resistant to magic, Mirabai's use for him has been of great value to her when used against her enemies who wield powerful magics.
Captain Atom is shock of this revelation and protest of being a good man, but then remembers his actions as Monarch which greatly troubles him. Suddenly, Wodan angrily storms out of his tent, still upholding his vendetta against Captain Atom, and again attempts to slay him. The men at the campsite prevents him from going after Captain Atom. But the men suddenly backs away from Wodan, who he thinks that they are intimated by him; however, the real reason that they are afraid is what is standing behind Wodan: Major Force.
