Lex's office. Somebody's thumbing through some files. The first one, I think, says "Sony Trinitron." The second says in huge block letters, "KENT, MARTHA." Dropkick removes the file from a wood cabinet. Now she is the one wearing pink. Lana infection! She starts to look through the file and turns to find Papa Luthor there. Does Lex have no security at all whatsoever? An intercom system, maybe? "You don't really think he's hidden it in here?" Papa Luthor asks. Dropkick says she doesn't know what he's talking about. Papa Luthor says he's talking about the valuable item Lex stole from her office. She says Lex would never steal from her. "Hmmm," Papa Luthor hmmms, and says that if she believes that, why is she rummaging around in Lex's stuff? She asks how she's supposed to know Papa Luthor didn't do it himself. "Oh my," he says, "it seems I've antagonized the lady of the house." Hee. He tells her to give his best wishes to Lex, then turns it around and says that if she did that, they'd have to explain how he caught her snooping. Bastard! "Ooh, that could get really messy," he says, rubbing the hair on his chinny-chin-chin. "Get out," Dropkick says. Papa Luthor turns mock-serious and moves to exit. But he stops to ask one last Columbo question: "Why are you marrying Lex?" She says, "Because I love him." He "hmmms" again and leaves.
Clark in the caves. He calls out for Professor Snideface. Clark finds the new and improved cave symbols. The camera revolves around Clark and reveals Papa Luthor behind him. When does this guy get any corporate work done? He shines a flashlight on his favorite farm boy. Papa Luthor goes straight to the wall and fingers the octagonal hole. He says he once had an octagonal "keepsake" in that exact shape. He says it disappeared from his office. Papa Luthor shines his flashlight right in Clark's face and says it disappeared the same day Clark rescued him and MamaKent. (Way back in better days during "Insurgence.") Clark asks what Papa Luthor is doing down there. Papa says he's taken over "conservatorship" of the caves. "Didn't Lex tell you?" he asks. Nope. Papa Luthor says Lex doesn't want to admit defeat and is still fighting him on it. Papa Luthor says that security people were looking for Dr...Dr... He makes a big show of not remembering the guy's name. Clark says that Professor Snideface was obsessed with the caves. Papa says he can understand why. He marvels at the symbols. Papa Luthor makes another show of pretending to notice that the symbols on the wall have changed into a different order. He shines the light at Clark again and asks if that isn't strange. "It's all Kawatche to me," Clark says. Clark warns Papa Luthor to be careful if he sees Snideface. Clark says he could be dangerous. Clark exits.
