It's Dr. Swann's huge castle of a building. Inside, Swann, in his wheelchair, moseys over to Papa Luthor, who is waiting for him in an open area of the huge interior. Swann says that big corporate types don't usually show up at his door unannounced. Papa Luthor apologizes, but says it's urgent. Swann says he's been wondering how long it would take Papa Luthor to show up. Swann says that Papa Luthor's probably been reading his emails to Clark. He doesn't seem upset about that. Swann says he's a scientist; he finds curiosity to be an admirable trait. Sneaky scientist! Papa Luthor says he's willing to hand over ownership of the caves if Swann can tell him what's written on those infernal walls. Swann says he can't help; the language is a mystery to him. Papa Luthor asks whether Swann knows anything about this octagonal keyhole thingee. Papa brings up Clark and the keyhole opening. Swann jokes that Papa Luthor needs a locksmith. Papa Luthor chuckles and says he used to have the octagon before it was stolen. He blames Clark. Papa Luthor asks Swann to talk to Clark. Papa Luthor smoothly says that it's a small price to pay for the answers Swan is seeking. Swann says he knows what he is after, but he wants to know what Papa Luthor is up to. He answers his own question: "You're dying." Papa asks how Swann knew that. Swann seems to have his own spying game going. Papa Luthor thinks the caves could save his life. Swann says he believes in the extraordinary, but prefers to follow his own path. Ooh, a no! Smack! Papa Luthor excuses himself and starts to go. Swann tells Papa Luthor that he doesn't know what would happen if he used the key on the lock. Papa says he's willing to take that chance. Swann decides that maybe they can do some dirty dealing after all. Dramatic music. Deal with the devil! Commercials!
