Watchtower. Chloe's on the phone with Clark. "The Kandorians are still MIA." Clark, on the front porch back home, is growing increasingly worried. "What about the Book of Rao? I've searched the entire farm and it's not here." Chloe, dodging a jungle of dangling wires and computer cords, makes her way to a single functioning laptop. The wee little laptop is chugging away, searching the Internet for any mention of the Book of Rao. I know you can find practically anything online these, days, from bacon-flavored salt to sex toys for your pooch, but an alien bible? Really? Before the jury-rigged computer can return any results, though, the search is blocked. A stylized graphic of a foreboding-looking Red Queen appears on the screen. The graphic starts popping up on all the screens around Watchtower, including the ones that had still been displaying only static. "Bad news, Clark," Chloe says. "It looks like I just got a Red Queen virtual smackdown." Man, she's even better than China at blocking Internet searches! Clark thinks it sounds like a Checkmate deal, but Chloe tells him that the Red Queen isn't working for them. "In fact, the rumor has it that her name has been filed under 'big bad nemesis.'" Clark, making his way to the side porch, finds Perry waving him over from a cozy wicker chair. Clark makes his apologies to Chloe: "I'll be there as soon as I can. I'm sort of held hostage here till after my mom's family dinner."
