Explosive Lady, who has created quite the little interrogation chamber with moody lighting in here, says that the schematics for these tunnels don't exist in city blueprints. She pulls out what looks like a bomb. She says she's rigged all five miles with C-4. As she ties the device to a nearby pole, she tells Lex about her history as a military demolitions expert. Demolition Woman! She says that she was discharged for having a short fuse. Lex asks why she doesn't just kill him. She says she'd have to start over. And she's guessing that Lex's project involving her husband is worth more to Lex than his life. "You decide," she says. She wants to speak to her husband in twenty minutes, or she'll blow the place up. She pushes a button on a tiny handheld device. It activates the timer on the nearby bomb. Adventure music plays. The woman pauses at the door to ask Lex if he's ever done anything crazy for love. Try impregnating someone with a fake baby! Now that's nutty. She closes a door. We see another device nearby. For five miles to cover, that must have been thousands of bombs.
Above-ground. Clark asks Chloe whether she's heard anything about Lex. Bomb squad staffers go about their business, not caring that these two are walking around in their dangerous work area. Chloe says that rescue efforts have been called off until they can "de-bomb" the area. Can they "de-civilian" the area by getting rid of Clark and Chloe? Clark says that could take forever. Chloe thinks Lex and "G.I. Jane" will be long gone before they can get through the rubble. Clark says that he's the only one who can save Lex. Chloe says not to look to her for encouragement. After what Lex did to her mother, she says, he can live with the rats for all eternity. That's the spirit! Clark says he's considered that the world would be a better place without Lex, but... Chloe finishes his thought, saying that he can't pick whom he saves. "Not if you're Clark Kent," she says. What's that? Clark actually acting like a hero? I never thought I'd see the day. Clark adds that what's in the tunnels might help take Lex down. Chloe suggests Clark get in there before the bomb squad does. Clark glances at the bomb squad workers. They don't look like they're doing much of anything. Clark springs into action. At normal speed.
