Luthor Mansion. Tess is tied to a chair. She wakes up. Parasite is there. He shocks her with his electro-hand. He seems to really be enjoying it. Parasite asks if she's in pain. He asks her to think about how Live Wire and Eva must have felt. "They betrayed us all," Tess says confidently. Punky, standing behind Tess, doesn't believe that. Tess asks what they want. First, Punky says, they want all the Black Creek patient files so they can round up everyone who suffered from Tess's "Injustice." Had to shoehorn the episode title in, didn't you? Punky says they're forming a new league. A much larger league, for people who garble their words as if they have a mouth full of gum! A big league chew, if you will! Parasite says nobody will ever mess with them again. Punky asks for the password to those files. "I'm not about to let the world get taken over by a bunch of freaks," Tess tells her coolly. Punky raises a sword to Tess and says, through her teeth, that this freak's going to make Tess talk. Clark enters through the double doors, at disappointingly normal speed and tells them to get away from Tess. Instead, Punky punches her in the mouth. Parasite zips over to where Clark is standing. Clark tries to reason with Punky, but Parasite grabs him in a choke and lifts. He pins Clark against the wall. Punky tells Clark that her name is now "Plastique" and that if being better than this means letting people like Tess go, then they'd rather be bad guys. Punky is suddenly hit in the shoulder with an arrow. She falls back against a wall. Green Arrow sails in from above with a zip line he somehow found time to attach across the room. Parasite doesn't seem to notice any of this is going on. Oliver lands on the floor and busts out his fist. There's a green Kryptonite ring on it imprinted with a capital "L." It glows brightly. Parasite is weakened. He lets go of Clark and falls to the floor, writhing. Oliver drags him away. He lifts the guy and body slams him onto the pool table. He punches the guy several times with his ring hand. Oliver lifts an 8-ball and looks like he's about to crush the kid's head. "STAAWWWWP!" Clark yells. Clark tells Oliver to let the kid go. Oliver throws the 8-ball against the other billiard balls instead. Clark comes over and grabs Parasite. Parasite just wants the pain to end. Clark advises him to give his powers back. Parasite nods. He grabs Clark's wrist and the transfer of power begins anew. Clark breathes heavily as beams of energy enter back into his body. Clark looks around and sees Oliver carrying out an unconscious Tess in slow motion. Clark gives them both a dirty look. We go to commercials.
