Lair of Lex. Clark comes in through the double doors. Security! "We need to talk," Clark says, dickishly. Lex, not even bothering to get up from his chair or to put away the papers he was reading, tells Clark that he needs to work on his entrance. Oh, for real, dude? I thought it was really forceful and butch. I'll come in again. Wait. Maybe I should stay here. Would that be a good acting choice? Lex says it's a bit abrupt. "What do you know about Cyntechnics?" Clark asks. Lex complains that this is what he means: no pleasantries, no small talk, just straight to the accusations. Come on, Clark. He wants foreplay! Clark says that he hasn't accused Lex of anything. Lex says that Clark's righteous tone says it all. He asks what he's supposed to have done this time. Clark says, "How about turning Victor Stone into a tin man without his consent?" Tin what? Lex asks smoothly if Clark means Victor Stone the football player who died in a car crash. Like Lex would ever know that otherwise. Clark says that's what Cyntechnics wanted everyone to believe. Lex suggests that Clark go badger them. Clark says that LuthorCorp bought them out seven months ago. Lex turns to lecture Clark that his company has bought or sold a hundred small companies in the last quarter alone. Clark asks if Lex doesn't know what goes on in his own company. Lex says that it's a multinational corporation, and that he delegates. Lex says that if somebody's doing something wrong, he'll take steps to "rectify" (dirty!) the situation. "So will I," Clark says. Awesome. A rectum pact. Or is that "packed"? Clark leaves angrily. No Hot Pockets, then?
Kent Farm at night. Lana is in the barn, looking for Bionic Brother. He shows up next to her unexpectedly, scaring her. He apologizes. Lana tells him that Clark went to go talk to Lex. BB wonders if he should go have a talk with Lex Luthor himself. With Clark still there? Dude, that would be hot. Lana tells BB that Lex has done some things she hasn't liked in the past, but that she can't believe Lex would have any part of this. "He's different," Lana says. BB says that at least he has a choice. Then Lana says that BB has a choice about whether he should lie to the woman he loves. This is like three different conversations happening at the same time, none of them that interesting. Lana says that's why she's there. Because she's projecting. BB says that Katherine was what kept him going during all his time in the lab. Lana's heart breaks as BB describes how much he missed holding his girl. Sappy music plays. BB starts to leave, and Lana asks where he's going. He says he's going to go find Katherine. He's not sure what he'll tell her, but -- uh oh. A green beam settles on Bionic Brother's chest. A soldier fires. BB gets shot in the shoulder. He falls and screams. Lana goes to help, but a soldier grabs her, spins her 'round, and then punches her in the face. Whoa! Is his name Private Stompy? Lana hits the ground -- unconscious, of course. "Target acquired," says another soldier. But he speaks too soon, because Clark shows up, grabbing him and tossing him at the other soldier. Clark ignores BB and goes to help Lana. She's fine. "That makes one of us," says BB. His shoulder is bleeding black liquid.
