Clark approaches a cute house that is nevertheless small for someone in bioengineering. "Dr. Hong!" Clark calls, before bothering to knock on the door. "Mr. Chan!" Clark calls again. He hears a car engine. Maybe the dude's not home; did you think about that? Use your superhearing, dumb-ass. Clark, at excruciatingly normal speed, walks around the house and toward a garage. He finds a flexible dryer tube stuck into a car window. Yep, he's an engineer, all right. Dr. Hong has asphyxiated himself in his auto. And there was nothing erotic about it. Clark shuts off the car and takes the doctor's pulse. "Is he dead?" someone asks. G-g-g-ghost! "I think you already know that answer, Lex," Clark says bitterly. Lex is, indeed, skulking over there in the shadows. Clark really needs to do something about his hearing. Clark walks past Lex and out the garage. Lex asks Clark if he really thinks Lex had something to do with this. Clark asks why Lex is there. Lex says that he did some research into Cyntechnics after their conversation. Clark doesn't believe it. Lex says that Dr. Hong was about to blow the whistle on the experiments. Lex thinks Hong couldn't live with himself, or that Dr. Kreig didn't let him live with it. Lex says that guy has gone "completely rogue." Totally awesome. Tell me this isn't some clunky-ass dialogue right here: "A project that started as an effort to allow amputees to live a normal life has turned into one man's quest to create a living machine." Lex convinces Clark to tell him where to find Bionic Brother. "He's sick," says Clark. "He's been shot." Clark thinks he may die. "Then bring him to me. I have the technology!" We have WiFi! In the bathroom, even! "I've seen the way you help people!" Clark snaps. Lex asks Clark to put aside his issues so that they can help BB. Clark thinks really hard. The inside of his brain smells like burning toast.
