Chloe, in her car (or someone's car), starts the engine and begins. "On the move, Oliver," she says. Oliver just wants to get this over with. He pulls a Zorro mask down over his eyes. He aims his giant tubular crossbow. What do you have, a Cruise Missile on there? Jimmy and Clark are crossing the street. Clark's phone rings. It's Lois. She calls for help as Dead Zone holds his head and starts to get up off the floor. "Help, Clark!" she says again. Just then, Chloe's crazy car is rounding the corner, its headlights shining on Clark. Clark puts a hand on Jimmy and leads him away long before anyone would have been in any danger. Chloe sails by. Abort, abort!
We cut back to The Talon, where Dead Zone is back to attacking Lois. He lifts her up and throws her onto a coffee table, breaking it.
Metropolis. Clark tells Jimmy that he has to make a phone call. He tells Jimmy to wait as he ducks down an alley. Clark superzips away just out of Jimmy's view.
Lois grunts. Dead Zone picks up his gun. He turns to fire on Lois, but Clark is already there, waiting. Their hands meet. Clark punches his gut, sending him flying against the wall and over a dining table. Clark is already gone by the time he hits. Lois didn't see Clark. She breathes heavily.
Metropolis. Jimmy is still waiting, checking his watch. A masked man, the criminal from earlier, grabs Jimmy and says, "You're coming with me." Jimmy offers his wallet. The man, who has a knife, says he doesn't want Jimmy's money. He leads him toward a waiting car. Luckily, Oliver sees what's going on. "This isn't part of the plan," he says to himself in that disturbing, low, Green Arrow voice. Oliver fires a grappling hook at a flagpole on a nearby building. He tenses up the line. Oliver, wearing a ridiculous red cape, grabs the crossbow and uses it to sail across the line. He kicks the criminal in the chest as Jimmy watches. The thug lands on the intended getaway car. The accomplice inside backs away and drives off, without his partner. Clark appears. "Jimmy! What happened?" he asks. "Did you actually expect me to fall for that?" Jimmy asks. Jimmy thinks Clark just saved him. Clark says it wasn't him. He looks up. "It was him," he says. Up on the rooftop is Oliver, cape flapping near an American flag. "No way," Jimmy says. Bystanders are noticing and pointing. Clark watches their reactions. They seem happy and hopeful. Clark has to really chew that one over.
