Patriot Acting Up

Watchtower. Tess is hard at work when Oliver shows up with a peace offering of beer and Chinese takeout. "I thought you said no happy hour," she teases. "Yeah, well, I'm still on the clock," he says with a chuckle. They talk about removing the tattoos; Dr. Hamilton is looking into it. In the meantime, feel free to lead the Suicide Squad to Watchtower! It's not like Chloe faked her death to keep them from finding out the team's secrets or anything. Tess and Oliver laugh about being friends... friendly... frenemies! "We survived tax audits and typhoons, Tess," Oliver says. "I think we're practically like family at this point." Aw. She raises a beer and toasts: "From the middle of the ocean to the top of the city." Oliver looks sad. He explains that now that everyone knows who he is, someone might follow him to Watchtower. There are those who count on Watchtower for secrecy and safety. "They didn't step out into the limelight like I did," he says. He realizes he can't go there anymore. Tess sympathizes with what a hard decision that must have been for him. It's his last tie to Chloe. He says, "Watchtower's in good hands, Tess." Tess smiles, flattered. Now eat your Chinese food before it gets cold!

Kent Farm. Clark is in the barn, doing mechanical things to some piece of equipment when the General walks in. "I owe you an apology," he says. Clark agrees with his silence. The General says he appreciates Clark standing up to him. "Nobody's had the guts to talk to me like that since my wife passed away," he says. He misses her, but sees Ella in his daughters' faces. He gives Clark advice about enjoying the simple things in life, like your wife and family, when you're faced with war. He would have spent more time with them, if he'd had the chance. The General looks like the saddest little bulldog in the world. Clark reminds him that his daughters love him: "You're their hero." "But I think Lois has got herself a brand-new hero now," the General says. He gives Clark a knowingly bashful smile. Clark doesn't react. The General tries thanking the Blur to Clark's face, all but winking and nudging him. Clark makes a few confused expressions. "So, Lois being saved by a vigilante... that would change your mind on the bill?" The way he says "vigilante" is hilarious. Vigilahhhnte. He admits he does like his daughter having her own guardian angel, but not all vigilantes are like the Blur. Clark's afraid that people will use the law to destroy others, but the General thinks that America will do the right thing. "Kind of like Lois did the right thing by you tonight," he says. "For years, I've been giving her boyfriends an impossible list of chores to do -- not to test them." "To test Lois?" Clark asks, confused. The General chuckles. "Those poor bastards, I put them through hell, and Lois never said a thing," he says. "That's how I knew she didn't love them." Well, Lois didn't say anything about Clark's chores, either. Clark feels pretty good about himself, though. When the General turns to leave, Clark calls him back: "About Lois and I [sic]... there was a question I was hoping to ask you." The scene ends before we find out what he asks. It's pretty easy to guess, though.
