LuthorCorp labs. The floors are illuminated, and there are super-high ceilings. A few scientists walk around doing scientist tasks. They're all, like, calculating sums and shit. It blows my mind. Lana asks what this place is. She didn't ask on the way? Lex says that it's the future, and that he'd like Lana to be by his side when it arrives. Wow, the future needs more techno music. Lana reads from the papers he's handed her. "You've been collecting viruses?" she asks. It's just a hobby, really. He has an issue #1 salmonella, mint, bagged and boarded. Lex says that they're the most deadly viruses on the planet. Lana asks what he's going to do with them. You know, eat some. Give some out at parties. Lex turns dramatically: "Change the world." That too. Lex says that they've been able to transform the viruses to turn them into the ultimate vaccine. He holds up a vial. The only problem is, the vaccine gives you herpes. Of the eye. In both nostrils. Lex says that a shot of the vaccine could protect you from any virus that was unleashed. "Unleashed? By who [sic]?" Lana asks. Lex says that SoFine told him that the first spacecraft might be the first of many. Lex says that Lana has to keep this a secret, and that even SoFine doesn't know they're been developing vaccines here. Oh, I'm sure he's figured it out. Lana asks why Lex doesn't trust SoFine anymore. Lex thinks that SoFine is reporting to someone a little higher up. He shows Lana two photos. One of them shows the ship in a jungle. Lex says he was tracking SoFine, and the dude led him to the ship. Lex says that the two photos were taken a hundredth of a second apart. SoFine is in one photo, standing next to the ship, and not in the other. Lana says, "Oh my God." She asks if SoFine came out of the ship like the others. The Others? Lex says that he went along with SoFine, to buy some time and learn his weakness. Lex thinks that SoFine might not have any. Lana thinks really hard. "He might," she says. Lana describes finding Papa Luthor in a trance, and how he told her how to stop them. Lex loves Lana now.
