Commercials. I'm not sure which I'd rather eat: the Pedigree dog food, or the Wendy's Frescata sandwich.
Scary music plays. We see a pilot light below a metal surface as the camera moves up, and see Papa Luthor lying on the floor above it. Having just seen Silent Hill, I can tell you that nothing that follows in this episode is as creepy as that, unless you count Papa Luthor's fear and desperation and the idea that nobody figured we'd know this storyline was lifted from Saw. Papa wakes up and finds a big box of matches. He lights one. He moves the flame toward the wall and sees a dead person. He screams, and backs up against another wall, using it to get to his feet. A light comes up. It's a dank room with a giant meat hook at its center. Two video screens illuminate next to two very artsy wall-embedded fans. Tinfoil Alien appears on screen, greeting Papa Luthor. Papa asks where he is. "In a Hell of your own making," Tinfoil tells him. Nice job, Papa Luthor. I love what you've done with the place. Papa looks down. His shoes are gone and he's sadly barefoot. "Who are you?" Papa asks. Shoe thief! Al Bundy! Tinfoil says he's one of the many faceless people Papa Luthor's greed has destroyed. "That narrows it down some, doesn't it?" Papa jokes. Tinfoil speechifies about Papa Luthor's evil nature, and how his minions toil while he profits. "It's called running a business!" Papa retorts. "That's how it WORKS!" Word! Tinfoil leans into the camera and says that Papa Luthor's going to have to get his own hands dirty.
A bright light shines in the room. Tinfoil asks Papa Luthor to take a look at what he's set up. There are two steel buckets underneath two faucets. Papa goes over and puts a finger under the faucet, and then smells the liquid. "Not exactly spring water, is it?" Tinfoil asks. Papa eyes the meat hook. "Ah, a good story always needs a hook, wouldn't you agree?" Tinfoil says. Oh, fucking groan. Papa asks what happens now. A game, of course. "Show me," Papa says. The screen goes to static, and then comes back to show someone in a suit and tie walking carefully, balancing the two buckets on a pole. Tinfoil explains that the buckets are the scales of justice, and that Papa Luthor will have to fill them with liquid from the tap. Tinfoil says that Papa Luthor has to balance it on the hook. If he's successful, the door to the room will open. On the black-and-white video, we see the guy in the suit try to lift the buckets and balance them on the hook, as flames rise at his feet. The buckets fly off-balance, and flames engulf the poor dude. He screams and flails. Tinfoil says that "Alex" didn't do too well. Papa looks at the charred body in the corner. We hear screams from the video. Apparently, the liquid is very flammable. Papa Luthor removes his suit jacket and places it over the dead body. "He was my driver, an innocent man!" Papa Luthor cries. Tinfoil says that no one connected to Papa Luthor is innocent. "Ready to play?" Tinfoil asks. Papa resists. He says that he will jump through no hoops. Tinfoil says that, in a few minutes, the flames will rise and burn Papa Luthor for his sins if he doesn't play along. We see a bunch of pipes erupt in gas-powered flames beneath the room. Mmm, propane sure does burn clean. The flames line almost every part of the room around Papa Luthor. This is gonna be fun.
