Synopsis for "Blame and Remorse"

Superman confronts Lt. Lupé Leocadio of the SCU regarding the violent beating she gave to Pete Ross. In anger, he crushes her badge in his fist, and drops it in front of her.
At the Daily Planet, Mr. Loving is chastising Clark Kent for believing that Pete is innocent of being Ruin, but they are interrupted by Jimmy Olsen and Jerry Frank who has just been hired by Perry White, much to Jimmy's excitement.
At home, Lois Lane packs for a trip to Umec, where she hopes to uncover who shot her on her last trip there. Lois plays the devil's advocate regarding Pete's innocence, but soon Clark's underlying confusion regarding his friend Wonder Woman's killing of Maxwell Lord. Lois reveals that she believes that Diana did the right thing, but reassures Clark that he is not to blame for his actions while under Lord's mind-control. They resolve that he should check to see whether any control remains implanted in his mind.
Superman visits Zatanna, who refuses to enter his mind, given recent events. She does, however, reveal that she had wiped the mind of The Toyman. They seek him out, and discover that through a psychotic delusion, he has kidnapped several children. They free the children, but Toyman escapes. Even so, Superman offers Zattana forgiveness for her actions, understanding her regret.
Elsewhere, underneath Metropolis, Lex Luthor and Mercy Graves find Parasite, and recruit her for an unknown cause.
