We see Kara walking in at the lab. She's got Nerd Overload's ID badge. There are no guards or security cameras to notice her? They really need to get a bigger fund allocation next year. Inside the lab, Kara goes straight for the crystal's chamber and smashes the glass that was previously hiding it. An alarm goes off. But there's no crystal inside. Oops. Kara is frustrated. All that tarting it up for nothing.
We're now in the office of ISIS. The logo on the wall has what looks like a giant cursive red "L" going over the word. You know that tingle you get in the pit of your stomach when something really evil is about to happen? Yeah, I've got that right now. All the way down to my asshole. This is...this is going to be bad, I think. Hold my hand. A woman sits at a desk messing with her laptop. Chloe comes in, still wearing her work clothes. There's a guy sitting on the couch looking anguished and a girl nearby reading something. It's "Shame" magazine. This month's cover story: "The Numbers Are In: You Do Masturbate More Than Anyone Else." Chloe goes to the receptionist's desk where a woman in a pink sweater vest (dear GOD!) asks if she can help her. Chloe is about to say something, but is interrupted by someone saying "Chloe!" It's Lana, standing there wearing black. GAAAHH! Scared me!
Lana, not at all upset, asks what Chloe is doing here. Chloe is open-mouthed. She says she stumbled across the web site for meteor victims. Chloe says she was there to get an interview, which may or may not be true. Maybe she was going there for support. She asks if Lana works there. "You could say that," Lana tells her. She and the receptionist share a creepy smile that gives me what some call "douche chills." Lana leads Chloe into another room and says that she sort of is the foundation. They pass a big stack of pink filing cabinets. We're in hell! Chloe asks when Lana became such an activist. Lana blah blahs about evil Lex and how he hurt so many people and their families and friends. She says she's using her divorce settlement to fight back. She opens a door to a large office with pink chairs, pink flowers and pink folders on a table. I curse you, Smallville! I curse you with my evil pink eye! Chloe says this is a major operation. No, not really. It's just Lana and some offices, according to Lana herself. Lana says she wants to open a free clinic, start support groups, and set up a crisis hotline. Chloe says she's so proud of Lana. Please, compliment her. Where else would she get any self-esteem if not from lines like that? Chloe asks why Lana didn't tell her earlier. Lana says she wanted to wait until she'd made this real. Chloe says it's on the web and that it's already out there. Lana says grassroots is all she wants now. She asks Chloe not to tell Clark about this. It says a lot about Lana's opinion of Clark that she doesn't believe he'd ever come across this online himself. Chloe says she thought Lana and Clark were all about full disclosure. Lana says that Clark will want to protect her and will say the work is too dangerous. Chloe thinks that's a little weird. Chloe says she knows when people are bending the truth and that she's sensing a right angle somewhere in here. Lana patronizingly says, "That right angle is your imagination." She asks Chloe again not to tell Clark anything. Chloe says the conversation is off the record. My eyes! The scene still burns! I think I also need a stomach transplant.
