Clark spots Lois (or something like her) and calls her name. He asks why she's not still in Mexico. He didn't think she'd get deported that fast. Clark scoffs at her before he gets a good answer: he asks if there's a limit to how tight a shirt can be and still meet the dress code. Snap! "Really? Even you?" Chloe-Upon-Lois says. She adds that she never made it to Mexico. Clark, already pretending to be fed up with the story, asks if this can wait until after her post-lunch, pre-dinner, after-coffee snack break. Boy, Clark is really giving her the business. He's never this fun. He says he can't imagine her having anything more to say after last night. "Last night?" she asks. Clark says she called him five times from the airport and once from the plane. She goes on the attack, asking how he was able to take time for six phone calls, but wasn't able to show up at Chloe's birthday. "Chloe knows sometimes I get hung up at the... farm," he says. Clark defends himself against a previous Lois suggestion that he's taking Jimmy's side. Clark reasons that he only believes there's two sides to every story. Well, in this story, Jimmy is a douche on both ends. "Really? Exactly what two sides?" Chloe-All-Up-In-That-Lois asks. Clark says Jimmy went overboard on the Davis thing, but that it's hard to be in a relationship when the other person doesn't believe in you. Chloe-With-A-Lois-Face looks hurt. Just then, something beeps on his computer. There's a police standoff. Clark already starts to walk out of the office, telling Lois to grab her jacket. She just stands there. Clark thinks there's something amiss when she doesn't tell him to saddle up. "Start your engines... Smallville!" she says instead. That's weak, even for a fake Lois. [So does Lois cover international incidents, or local disturbances of the peace? Or both? - Zach]
The corner of LuthorCorp and LuthorCorp. Oliver has apparently taken over the old Papa Luthor office. He's reading the newspaper, which doesn't seem like an Oliver kind of thing to do. The front-page headline says, "Search continues in Luthor murder - LuthorCorp CEO donated (something) million to high school." That doesn't seem like a very fitting eulogy for Lex. Just then, Zatanna is standing there, wearing a leather zip-up top, trying to look like Danica Patrick before a GoDaddy.com commercial shoot. Oliver guesses she's not from the steel union. Because of the union of steel... in your pants? I guess I just don't get Oliver's sense of humor. She introduces herself, at which point I would have said, "Vagina?" Oliver's much smoother than me. They shake hands. Then Oliver ruins it by asking if she lost a bet with that name. Ouch. She says it's a family thing. He asks why she tracked him down to a nightclub, then his office. She says she needs his help. These fishnets are riding up really high and if he could just... Oliver doesn't take her for the charity type. She says her father left her an estate in "Shadowcrest," so money's no big deal. Oliver suddenly connects Shadowcrest with her father. "John Zatara, the Maestro of Magic, was your father?" he asks. The fuck? He says he knows what it's like to lose family. She's Zatanna Zatara? Really? Poor girl. Zatanna says she lost his knowledge from a book that's like the Bible of her heritage. She says Lex acquired the book in an auction after her father died. She wants it back. Oliver asks why she can't wiggle her nose or pull it out of a hat. "You're cute," she says, "and, no." She says she didn't learn much beyond parlor tricks from her father. Oliver wishes he could help, but despite the merger, he doesn't think he can get to Lex's things without pushing past some lawyers. Zatanna tries to sweeten the deal. She says she can grant Oliver a wish. Big or small, tall or squat. Oliver says it's tempting, but he's pretty comfortable. Zatanna says there must be a person he's lost or something he's done he'd like to take back. She says she'll make it happen if Oliver gets the book. Then she sets a midnight deadline. Oliver looks down at the newspaper with Lex on the front. We hear a whooshing sound. When Oliver looks up, he's alone in the office. Spooky lady!
