Outside the hospital, Clark sees Lex speeding off in his car. Clark sees Marge coming out and asks about Dr. Dropkick. Violating laws about patient privacy, she says that it's still touch and go. She turns to a deputy, asks about the warrant, and mentions the name of the motel right in front of Clark. Clark's eyes get all big with information overload.
Motel. Clark superspeeds there and watches as something's going on inside. He x-ray-visions and sees someone entering through a window. Inside, Lex is scoping the motel room with a flashlight. Lex suddenly appears behind Clark. Lex tells Clark to stay out of it. Clark warns Lex against acting out. Lex asks if he should just leave this to the "pros." Lex says that Tall Paul's car is still here. Lex's phone suddenly rings. He lets the phone ring and flashes a light over to the broken, bloody mirror. The ringing phone is supposed to be Lex's guy, I suppose. He and Clark sneak over to the bathroom. They slowly open the door. Flashlight on the shower curtain. Lex pulls the curtain. Meacham! He's dead, throat slit. Lex calls somebody a son of a bitch and says that Tall Paul now has Meacham's car. Clark hears a car approaching outside. The closed captioning says that the police are yelling for whoever's inside to come out with their hands up, but in reality, they just bust in, guns waving. Lex has picked up Meacham's gun as well. When the cops bust in, they only find the open window, a thin curtain waving in the breeze. Marge is one sad kitty.
