Synopsis for "Death to the Future - Part 4"
LexCorp security forces have joined in with the struggle to destroy the never ending battle of Terminator droids coming from the future. However, they have an ulterior motive: Lex Luthor wants one to study. With one of the droids shut down, the security men bring the droid in to be studied. Once safely inside, the droid reactivates itself and begins to attack. The scientist studying it is killed instantly, and then it goes after Lex. Using a remote control, a titanium cylinder falls from the ceiling to capture the Terminator. It begins to punch its way out, so Lex has no choice but to loose his prize. The inside of the cylinder is turned into an inferno until nothing is left of the droid but slag.
Elsewhere in the city, Superman returns and soon flies to assist Supergirl and Superboy in their fight. Superman gives a quick explanation of where he has been, while they clean up the last few droids. Superman quickly explains that these droids are only a distraction and that there is a far deadlier one out there looking for John Connor. When Supergirl tells Superman that Lois and Sarah are looking for him, he flies off. The two young heroes are soon kept busy by some more Terminators.
Lois and Sarah arrive at the telephone box from where John called but there is no sign of him. Superman arrives and learns from them about John before heading off to find the boy.
Cyborg Superman and the SuperTerminator climb out of the cement John coated them in, and are soon onto him due to her good olfactory sensors. The SuperTerminator uses her heat vision to destroy the pipe John is hiding in, and she is just about to finish him off, when Superman arrives to save him, and then challenge the SuperTerminator. Her flesh on her fake arm is torn away as she reveals a malfunctioning weapons array underneath. Superman moves with super-speed and rips the arm off and punches the android. He then uses the arm to batter The Cyborg. However, The Cyborg then merges with the SuperTerminator to make himself more powerful.
Elsewhere, Superboy and Supergirl continue to fight the other Terminators. Nearby a helicopter hovers in which is Lex Luthor is on board and arm with a weapon that can fire a virus that will shut down the Terminators; in which he begins to do so. Supergirl thanks Lex for his help, and then snatches the gun from him.
As Superman fights on the ground, Superboy and Supergirl begin to clear up the other Terminators with the virus gun. The combined Cyborg/Terminator is certainly stronger, and Superman is having problems. Supergirl zaps the hybrid with the gun, but it only affects the Terminator. The Cyborg separates himself from the Terminator and quickly leaves vowing that Skynet will still be born.
Superboy and Supergirl help Superman up. With a quick thanks, Superman explains that their job is not yet over. They scour everywhere looking for every last scrap of Terminator technology. Melting it all into a ball of slag, Superman then throws in into the sun. Returning back to Earth, Superman finds John and takes him to Lois and Clark's apartment to be reunited with his mother.
In Lex Tower, Luthor stands alone reading the diary of one Mr. Van Dirk and admires his collection of Terminator parts that he has been collecting for years. In which these technology were the basis for Luthor having quickly creating the virus. He will see that Skynet is built, but this time he will control it.
