Forgiving someone, no matter how close a friend, for torturing your kids?? No. Not a chance.
But Paula, the daughter was stoic and put her stiff upper lip into place. That means she was okay with everything. A little agony from kryptonite was nothing. As pointed out, it was done for the love of her mother.
These are supers after all. Torture at the hands of a longtime family friend comes with the status. Since the girl is so much like her mother, and better bait because of that, she'll be over it by next Tuesday. Lois always got over things quickly.
On the other hand, dad can fly. Scooping up his dear friend and flying straight up would have gotten the kryptonite away from the kids and he and Jimmy could have had their heart to heart in a place more conducive to the psycho coming to his senses faster.
Good writing? Absolutely. I was with it to the end, too.
Not letting the psycho face justice is where I part ways.
