Metropolis. Lex is standing on the street. He's standing next to a cool-looking building. Papa Luthor shows up in his town car and gets out, wearing a black trench coat and cool shades. He says it's an interesting place for a meeting. Papa asks why Lex didn't come up to the penthouse. Lex says he has a garbage delivery to make and didn't want to tarnish the marble. Lex asks for an explanation about the Dominic visit. Rehash, rehash. Lex says he's spent more money on a weekend in Hong Kong (naughty!) then he has lately and hasn't had adding machines sicced on him. Papa Luthor says, quite reasonably, that it's company money and not Lex's personal pocket book. Lex goes back to the ambition thing and how it bothers his dad that he's succeeding. Same song, different album. Papa says he's happy that Lex is doing well. Lex doesn't believe him. "You're afraid I won't need you anymore," Lex says. Papa leans in close so we can see all the craggles of his face. "You'll always be my son," he says, "and you will always need me, Lex." He starts to walk off. Lex asks if Papa's not curious about Dominic, who hasn't checked in for hours. Lex pulls out some keys and tosses them to Papa to pop the trunk. "Lex. What has he done? What has he done?" Papa mutters as he goes to the trunk. He pops it open. It's a trunk-full of Dominic! A spare manservant! Dominic has his mouth taped. Lex removes the tape roughly. Lex tells Papa that if he has an accounting question in the future, to call him. And that next time, the person Papa sends will be lucky to get a ride home with the spare. Lex walks away. Papa calls after him. "Lex," he says. "Well done." Well, yeah. In a nice extra moment, Papa shuts the trunk without helping Dominic out of it.
Football field. The Metropolis Sharks, with the worst-drawn logo in football history on their helmets, announce #12, Jocko Whitney! It's in slow motion as Jocko hikes the ball. It seems like a dream sequence. Strummy crap rock plays as players crunch together. Jocko throws a nice pass. On the sideline, Jocko's dad, wearing a nose tube (wonder if it's the same prop Ash's mom used. If so, ewwww) cheers for his son with a hearty, "Yes!" A brownish-blonde haired woman stands next to him in a long coat. Jocko high-fives and comes over to his dad. Jocko smiles big and asks how his father's doing. "Never better," the old man says. Up in the stands, Bo Duke emerges. He watches the scrimmage with Lex, whom he's standing next to. Bo says it's a really nice thing Lex did for the Fordmans. Lex thanks him. He says it means a lot coming from Bo. That's such an oft-used line for Lex. Lex says he closed the book on the investigation a while back. Bo asks why he initiated it in the first place. Lex says that day was the accident. He asks if Bo's ever wanted to know how things like that happen. "No," say Bo, international man of non-mystery. He says he just accepts that miracles do happen and you don't need an explanation for everything.
