The Harvest Festival comes to Smallville. Jonathan is upset as Eliza breaks up with him. As Jonathan acts out, from yelling at Clark about moving back to Smallville, to drinking at the Festival, Clark is reminded about the last Festival before he decided to move to Metropolis. Sharon comes back to the Smallville Gazette with her son Derek, who claims he was in a coma and had suffered from memory loss. Chrissy is immediately suspicious and tracks Derek after a fire breaks out at the Smallville Community Center (which Derek himself caused due to struggling with powers like Tag). Meanwhile, Captain Luthor introduces himself to Lois as Marcus Bridgewater and offers to help Lois with her investigation on Edge. Chrissy finds Derek with Larr, re-exposing him to X-Kryptonite radiation to stabilize his powers. Marcus tries to destroy both Derek and Superman, but only Derek is mortally wounded. Lana presents a bench to the town that serves as a memorial to Martha. Marcus sees Lois happy with Clark and is reminded of the Lois on his Earth who was his wife. After a date at the Festival, Sarah and Jordan decide to remain as friends. As Jordan is walking home, he is attacked by Tag.

Walker makes an appearance on Good Morning America as Captain America and reveals his desire to live up to Rogers’ mantle. Meanwhile, Wilson and Barnes struggle to work together as Barnes expresses disapproval in Wilson’s decision to surrender Rogers’ shield. They travel to Germany and find the Flag-Smashers smuggling medicine. Wilson identifies a possible hostage that is revealed to be the group’s leader, Karli Morgenthau. The Flag-Smashers, all with superhuman strength, quickly overpower Barnes and Wilson until Walker and Lemar Hoskins come to their aid, although the Flag-Smashers escape. Walker requests Barnes and Wilson join him in aiding the Global Repatriation Council (GRC) to quash the ongoing violent post-Blip revolutions, but they refuse. Traveling to Baltimore, Barnes introduces Wilson to Isaiah Bradley, a veteran super soldier active during the Korean War, but he refuses to help them due to his troubled past with Barnes. Barnes is arrested for missing a court-mandated therapy appointment but is released when Walker intervenes. He once again asks Barnes and Wilson to work with him to track down the Flag-Smashers, but they refuse and Walker warns them to stay out of his way. Barnes suggests they visit Helmut Zemo, in prison in Berlin,[b] to gather intelligence related to the Flag-Smashers.
