Talon apartment. Chloe is tapping away at a laptop. Is she telecommuting? Doesn't she normally do this at the Watchtower? Oliver walks in through the door without knocking. Chloe lights up. She walks over to Oliver, purring, "Just the interruption I was hoping for." Don't get too excited, lady; he keeps his shirt on for the rest of the episode. She has on another green top. Oliver walks past her without greeting and turns up some rock music on her laptop. At first, she's puzzled, but then she thinks it's mood music when Oliver plants himself in front of her. She tilts her head up and says she likes where this is going. He leans down close enough to kiss her, but their lips barely brush. "It's not a booty call," he whispers. Chloe pulls back slightly, blinking. "I think Tess Mercer might be listening," he says. Kinky. Still leaning over her, Oliver says he knows that Chloe's been stealing money from him. Chloe holds his gaze for a long while before lowering her lashes. "It's not like that," she says. He scoffs, surprised that Chloe would use him for his money like the other women he's known. The rock music changes to tinkly piano notes. Chloe says it's not like that; she was borrowing the cash. "I'm buying insurance for the entire planet," she tells him. Well, that's a relief, because I don't think Congress is ever going to agree on a health care bill. Oliver searches Chloe's eyes.
Random grimy warehouse. Faora paces. Clark zips in with a whoosh and she rushes over to him. "Have you found my sister?" "Not yet," he says, "but I haven't given up." He asks about the other abductees that Zod mentioned. How was Vala connected to them? Faora explains that they were "cybernetic engineers" who were experimenting on humans to learn how to get their powers. The music becomes tense. Clark frowns a little as he tries to figure out what "cybernetic" means.
