Troubled by being unable to stop his neighbor from beating his wife, Clark returns to his childhood home for advice from his dad. After a heart-felt talk he returns to Metropolis to talk more about it with Lois and explains why the situation is bothering him so badly, revealing a secret about his early days as the Man of Steel.
After their talk they return to Clark's apartment to hear Gary beating up Amanda yet again, but Lois is infuriated that Clark won't step in to help. Finally Andrea asks for help and Clark kicks the door in, running Gary off. Lois convinces Andrea to call a shelter to finally get help and Superman catches up to Gary and convinces him to seek help as well.
