Daily Planet. Jimmy, holding a rolled up set of papers with his awesome story, enters one of the colorful senior editor offices. He notices that the door to Lex's office is open a crack. He sees Pete sitting at the desk, typing away. A helpful dialogue box on the screen Pete is using says, "Virus uploading in thirty seconds." It's just one of the great Windows Vista features we're all not clamoring for. Not at all stealthily, Jimmy sneaks into the room and hides behind a divider. The divider has holes in it, but Pete's not noticing. A progress bar made of little scorpion icons reaches the end. "Virus successfully uploaded," a message on the screen says. Pete admires his handiwork. Lex is suddenly at the door. Pete closes the laptop. "Please. Don't allow me to disturb you," Lex says. Lex says Pete is quite the hero these days, rescuing Kara and trying to erase Chloe's online extracurricular activities. "I guess things never change," Lex says. Not on this show, no. "You're living proof of that," Pete fires back. Lex says they might have some stuff in common. He says they both have a friend who let them down and that they both loved women still infatuated with Clark Kent. Pete faces off with Lex and tells him he's even more messed up than before. Lex says he thought he was being civil in his response to breaking and entering. Lex says one fact remains: he controls Chloe's fate. He thinks Pete should put his amazing ability to work for him. Lex shows Pete a photo of Kara's bracelet. He believes it's locked inside Papa Luthor's vault. When did Lex get all these glossy photos done? Did he just buy a new printer and he's all excited about the dots-per-inch? Pete thinks Chloe wouldn't want her job used as a bargaining chip. "I'm not talking about her job, Pete," Lex tells him, "I'm talking about the secret she's been keeping." He asks if Pete wants to be the reason the world knows that Chloe is a meteor freak. Jimmy wasn't expecting that one. Neither was Pete.
