The Talon. Lois, up in the apartment, removes a flash drive from her red laptop and prepares to hand it over to Dead Zone. She tells him that he can ask anyone: she knows how to keep a secret. Dead Zone, still pointing a gun at her, says that she recognized him at the paper. "And I can just as easily forget!" she promises. She says she has a terrible memory and that he can trust her. Nah. Don't think so. She holds out the thumb drive. Dead Zone tells her that there's one thing you learn when you spend four years in a cage: you don't trust anybody. Long pause as he does nothing. Isn't this the part where you shoot her?
Back in Metropolis. Oliver is watching from the rooftop. He sees Jimmy and Clark walking. Clark is telling Jimmy that they can go get a cup of coffee and set the record straight. "Whatever you're comfortable with," Jimmy says as they walk, "I'm here for you." He's trying so hard.
Talon. Dead Zone says that he's sorry, but he won't ever be locked up again. Lois bats away his gun and starts swinging, punching him in the face. He overpowers her and pushes her back on a table. Then she pushes him back. They do the theater trick where you're both grabbing on to something and you hold your hands together and swing them wildly for control. They both fall on the floor and the gun slides across the floor. Lois kicks Dead Zone and goes for the gun. He grabs her as she goes and pushes her against the wall. Lois reaches into her pocket instead of reaching for the gun. She pushes some buttons quickly before she trips him up. He falls.
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.
