Dr. Light's kids have a play date with the Guardian's daughter Gwendoline, while the parents talk. And Sodam Yat is stopped from seeing Mon-El by Tellus, who tells him that evil would win out if they meet now. Yat believes Tellus, but wants some Daxam knowledge crystals to be passed on to Mon-El, which Tellus agrees to do.
