Meanwhile, Jaime Reyes returns to his hometown of Palmera City after graduating from Gotham Law University, only to learn that his family is facing eviction from their home due to financial difficulties.

Title: “It’s Been A While”
Directed by: Jason Zurek
Written by: Helen Leigh
Aired: November 24, 2023
In flashbacks, Nolan flew aimlessly through space after abandoning Earth. While contemplating suicide at a black hole, he instead saved a Thraxan ship being pulled into it and was made their rule. In the present, Mark’s lingering anger towards Nolan is worsened when he learns of Nolan’s new wife, Andressa, and their child. Understanding his son’s feelings, Nolan nonetheless asks for his help in protecting Thraxa, but three Viltrumite soldiers arrive. As he takes Andressa and her son to safety, Mark learns from her that Nolan truly regrets his actions and loves him. The Graysons defeat the soldiers but are grievously wounded. Nolan is subsequently captured and taken back to Viltrum to be executed while Kregg, a high-ranking Viltrumite general, tasks Mark with Nolan’s original mission of preparing Earth for their invasion, or else they will destroy it. Meanwhile, Debbie accepts that her relationship with Nolan is a lie. As such, she stops accepting his income through Cecil and throws out his books. Elsewhere, Donald discovers evidence of his death. Conflicted and confused, he tries to stab himself, only to find he has become invulnerable.
