Here's an abrupt shift: we see the exterior of an industrial plant in Alquízar, Cuba. Inside a trashed-out looking warehouse, Green Arrow is skulking about. He sees a person standing across the room by a window in the dark room. It's a bald man. Oliver rears back with his arrow. He locks in the target. "Goodbye, Lex," he says. The arrow takes down the figure. Oliver goes to examine his handiwork. He sees that it was a mannequin. An eye has been taken out. Pinned to the mannequin's suit: a note that says, "Sorry I missed you." Ollie is suddenly kicked in the back by a woman. The woman keeps kicking at him. His hood has fallen back, exposing his face. "Oliver Queen?" we hear a familiar, grating voice say. The woman steps forward. It's Lana Lang. Her hair is down and kinda messy-looking, like she's going to a comic book convention as one of the cool girls. "Lana?" Oliver says. Yep. It's her. Let's get pink up in here.
Commercials. Teen vampires are the new emo kids!
"So, Oliver Queen moonlights as Green Arrow. Does Clark know about you?" Lana is asking. They're still in the crappy Cuban warehouse. Oliver, getting bitchy/gossipy all of a sudden, says it's safe to say Clark knows more of his secrets than those of Lana. Ooh, snap! You told her, girlfriend! Is Ollie trying to make her jealous? Lana tries not to stumble over a line where she has to say that a few hours ago, "430,000 megagigs of LuthorCorp RAM and Ethernet cables" were in that place. Megagigs? Really? You know that doesn't exist, right? 1,024 gigabytes would be a terabyte. Quit talking out of your ass, Lana. You just got here. Ollie thinks they're both trying to settle a score. Lana sees the arrow'd dummy on the ground and says Oliver's doing more than that. He pulls out the note that was on the body. He asks if Lex left the note for him or for Lana. Lana says she's not convinced Lex is alive. She says she just followed leads to this place to protect Clark. She seems to think the evil empire might have outlived its king. Yeah, on this show, too. Oliver reveals to her that Lex found Clark's secret. He offers to help Lana on the trail to Lex. Lana thinks Oliver's version of help is a little too personal. Where is she getting that from? Does she even know Oliver much? She says that he's Green Arrow. "You're better than this," she says. Just because he tried to shoot Lex with an arrow? Ollie chuckles and says she sounds like Clark. Lana thinks that fighting the greater good might mean they all have to be a little more like Clark. Take a number and leave your brain at the door. Oliver walks past Lana. As he's leaving, she stops him and asks how Clark is doing. Ollie leaves out all of the details since Lana left, but tells her that Clark is giving Chloe away at her wedding that day. He says Lana can come find out herself. She shakes her head. "No, I can't. It's too complicated," she tells him. He says it's her best friend's wedding day. He doesn't see the complications. Oliver asks what Clark would do. Lana looks guilty and sad.
