Snideface at the caves. He's staring at one particularly choppy piece of cave with a spiral seemingly burned into it. Snideface holds out his hand (Stop! In the name of Lex!) and makes his most snide face. You could cut the snide with a machete in here. The camera zooms in on a little octagonal hole in the center of the spiral. Snideface's palm starts to glow with a symbol, and a bolt of energy shoots out from it and toward the octagonal hole. Snideface is still sneering. And where'd he get a jean jacket? The spiral starts to spin with its symbols glowing. The symbols shift and rearrange themselves from a spiral into a sort of sunburst. Snideface turns around and sees a drawing on the opposite wall of a dude shooting a beam at an octagonal drawing. The cave drawing dude has an "S" on his chest. Savior? Snideface? Stupid? "I know who you are," Snideface says. I'm Omar G. Pleased to meetcha.
Outside the Talon. Lots of American flags. "Silent Film Festival Show" is on the marquee. Inside, Lana has made a new best friend. She brings a tray of coffee and cup over to Dr. Dropkick and asks if she's planning a wedding rehearsal or a peace summit. Yes, the joke only gets better the more times the show tells it. Dropkick says it's hard to know what side everybody's on. Tell me about it. Last season on 24, I had no idea what the fuck was going on. Lana asks if she's not having second thoughts. Dropkick says it's all gotten very complicated. Argh! That word again! Now twentysomething professionals are using it too? When my parents start to use it, I'm calling "Game Over." Dropkick, by the way, is either using industrial-strength mascara, or she's got some fake eyelashes going. It takes a lot to out-raccoon Lana, but she's somehow done it. Dropkick asks Lana about her "tall, dark, handsome" boy troubles. Lana asks what Dropkick would do if she knew Lex was hiding something from her, but was being truthful about the important things, like the way he feels about her. "Would that be enough?" Lana asks. Dropkick says that Lana has to decide whether the part the person is willing to share is more important than not having the person at all. I could really use a popcorn break right about now. Lana moves her mouth around. Dropkick's eyelashes run off to join the tree people from The Two Towers.
