Luthor Mansion. The moon is suddenly full. Has a lot of time passed, or did someone fall asleep in the editing room? Tess sits in her library office. Once again, a storm rages outside. The thunder and lightning always like to show up for a dramatic moment. Tess has a folder from the orphanage. In it is her birth certificate. As she reads it, she flashes back to the (stormy) night she was left on the steps of St. Louise's. A man leads little Tess from a limo to Granny Goodness's waiting hands. He caresses the top of little Tess's head before returning to his car. Although we don't see his face, we get a glimpse of his leonine mane. Little Tess calls after her father, but he drives away. The last thing she sees is the license plate that reads... "LUTHOR." In the present day, Tess learns from her birth certificate that Lionel was her father and Pamela Jenkins was her mother. She also learns that her birth parents were especially cruel, as they thought "Lutessa" was a perfectly sane name to give her. Tess, overwhelmed, runs to the window. "Happy birthday," she says to herself, adding her insane real name with a note of bitterness.
