The Lair of Lockdown. Lex watches a monitor in which Deputy Revenge is dragging the poor aide's body across the floor. "A spaceship?" Lex asks through the intercom. "Have you tried the amusement park? I think they have one you can ride for a dollar." This panic room looks expensive. They couldn't give you monitors that aren't monochromatic green, Lex? Revenge says he saw Lex take the ship from the field after it landed. Lex says that's crazy. "Does this look crazy to you?" Revenge asks, holding up a scalded, deformed hand. That does look pretty fucking crazy, dude. Revenge says he was on the scene when the response team got wiped out. He gets emotional when he says he was under his cruiser, half-dead, when Lex and his team rolled up and collected the spaceship. Revenge is mad that nobody checked for survivors. Lex says he's sorry, but he still doesn't know what the guy is talking about. Revenge notes aptly that Lex will make a great politician; he sounds like he believes his own lies. Lex tells Revenge that he had this room designed after the incident at the missile silo. It can withstand a nuclear blast. Lex says Revenge will never get in here. "You'll never get out," Revenge counters. The wireless system is locked and Lex's security team is in the basement. Sure, but Lex is a politician in the middle of a campaign. There's a lot more chance someone will notice he's missing than not. Lex uses his remote control to pan a camera around the room. He notices something on a wall that has a strange, wire-like light on it. Lex says it's a stalemate. Revenge says he'll have a find a way to break it. Very dramatic music plays to distract from the fact that not a damn thing is happening.
Clark and MamaKent are walking along, chatting. She's carrying a white bucket full of Clark's hair product. He's just told her that Lana is helping Lex research the spaceship. Clark is fuming that Lana lied to him for weeks. Asshole! MamaKent points out that Clark's been less than honest with her, too. So many times that humans don't have a number that goes that high. MamaKent says it's not easy to be truthful with the one you love if it might hurt them. She glances off-frame, embroiled in her own dishonesty dilemma. Clark whines that things were perfect when he lost his powers. Now, all he does is lie to her. "I wish I could just tell her," he mopes. MamaKent says she's not advocating that, but that after telling Pete and Chloe, they both accepted Clark just fine. "I'm an alien," he says. MamaKent says they accepted him as a friend whom they love very much. Clark wonders if Lana would feel the same way. MamaKent says that if she doesn't, then maybe she's not the one Clark's meant to be with. "I can't imagine ever loving anyone else," Clark says intensely. Just then, I get bonked on the head by the anvil of Lois Lane pulling up in the fabulous 2006 Ford Fusion. Boy, we've missed you, Ford Fusion. Lois Lane greets them and Clark purses his lips like he's drinking bad lemonade. Lois asks for Bo in the most convoluted way possible, including the phrase "billionaire butt" in reference to what part of Lex they'd like to kick. MamaKent says Bo's in the barn. "Salt of the earth. Voters love that," Lois says. Clark is still annoyed. Lois tells him to turn that frown upside down because unhappy family members reflect badly at the polls. Right, because there's not a single person for miles around. She smacks Clark on the shoulder as she walks by. Oh, yeah. She's going to make an awesome Real Lois Lane. I can't fucking wait. Clark says he's looking forward to the end of the campaign.
