J'onn J'onzz : Father, I haven't been this lost since after I killed Manchester Black. You came to me then. You helped me find myself. I need your help now.
M'yrnn J'onzz : [appearing] J'onn, my son!
J'onn J'onzz : Father. It's good to see you. I-I am... I am so sorry. I know now what I did. It was unforgivable. When I wiped your mind of Malefic... I committed the greatest sin.
M'yrnn J'onzz : No, J'onn. It was I who failed. All you did was ease your father's suffering. I forced your hand. I take full responsibility. But that's not the reason I'm here, is it?
M'yrnn J'onzz : Malefic is in National City, and he needs your help.
J'onn J'onzz : My help? If what you say is true, then everyone I love is in danger.
M'yrnn J'onzz : Your brother cannot harm them. He is a prisoner.
J'onn J'onzz : A prisoner? Of whom?
M'yrnn J'onzz : That you must discover on your own.
J'onn J'onzz : Father, you have to help me. How can I find him?
M'yrnn J'onzz : You must make a choice. Banish your brother once and for all... or save his soul. However, there is only one way to reach Malefic. And it requires you to... risk your own death by his hand.
J'onn J'onzz : Father, I need your counsel. Malefic came after my family, and history repeated itself. To protect them, I had to send Mal back to the Phantom Zone. I have tried to move on, but it's like I can feel him nearby.
M'yrnn J'onzz : That's because he is nearby.
J'onn J'onzz : What?
M'yrnn J'onzz : Your brother is here.
J'onn J'onzz : You mean here in my mind?
M'yrnn J'onzz : No. I mean he's across town.
Supergirl : We don't know when Leviathan will strike next. We-we don't even know what it is. And what are they after? All these unknowns make me feel anxious. And when I feel anxious, I want to punch things.
J'onn J'onzz : We've faced unknown dangers before.
Supergirl : This feels different. I have a bad feeling about it.
J'onn J'onzz : Well, Alex has the DEO working overtime on Leviathan. Are you sure something else isn't bothering you?
Supergirl : Before I told Lena I was Supergirl, I was terrified of how she would react. I was so afraid I was going to ruin the friendship. Ugh. I still hate thinking about it. Just watching William lose his friend hit a little too close to home.
J'onn J'onzz : Before I fell, I was seized by another vision of Malefic.
Supergirl : Another? You've had more of these?
J'onn J'onzz : Yesterday. I felt Malefic during the psychic attack. It's as if I can sense him all around me.
Alex Danvers : But how? We sent him to the Phantom Zone.
J'onn J'onzz : All I can think is these flashes are... maybe symptoms of my guilt. I know we had no choice but to send Malefic back to the Phantom Zone, but... I mean, he's too dangerous to be contained here on Earth. Even so, I can't help feeling I've wronged my brother again. This is the third time he's been sentenced to confinement by my hand.
Supergirl : No, your brother made his own decisions. You can't blame yourself for that. But it seems like you're going through some sort of trauma.
Alex Danvers : Maybe Kelly can help.
J'onn J'onzz : She can't provide the help I need. I'll deal with this the Martian way.
M'yrnn J'onzz : The only chance of saving your brother is to let down your psychic shield entirely. Open your mind to him like a flower. Complete vulnerability. Allow him access to your memories and innermost thoughts, so he can see your truth.
J'onn J'onzz : If I bond with Malefic... he-he can choose to poison my mind. How can I make that choice knowing that he will most likely murder me, and kill everyone I love?
M'yrnn J'onzz : Then retrieve the Phantom Zone projector, send him back to isolation.
J'onn J'onzz : And punish him again?
M'yrnn J'onzz : I'm sorry, my son. In my lifetime, I faced this test. Should I attempt to reach Malefic and risk the utter decimation of my people, my family, and myself by his destructive power? Or should I lock him away where he cannot harm others? I made my impossible choice. There is no such thing as right or wrong. There is only peace in one's heart, something I never found. The sins of the father are visited on the son. You must make your own choice, J'onn. Then ask H'ronmeer to guide you to your brother. No matter what you decide, I will love you for it. Just as I loved both you and Malefic... long ago.
