Metropolis. Airplane's-eye view of The Daily Planet building. Lois is walking through the newsroom holding some files. She asks someone to hold the doors of the elevator. Inside is a comely woman wearing a dark wig, rockin' the Bettie Page look. Lois gives her a bitchy look. I don't see a hole in the elevator wall from the night before. Lois identifies the woman as "Dinah Lance." Lois, not one to be judgmental, calls her the "right-wing hawk of the airwaves," and asks if she's all dressed up because she's going to an execution. Dinah, who's wearing a ring on a chain around her neck, says that if Lois did any fact-checking, she'd know the state outlawed those years ago. It's true! No, not the bit about executions; it's true that Lois is a dumbshit. Dinah and Lois keep being jerky to each other. Dinah tries a right jab at Lois by telling her that her "limousine liberal Casanova" has resurfaced, "minus a certain shrill arm trophy." She hands Lois a copy of a newspaper (it's hard to tell if it's the style section of The Planet or a tabloid) with the headline, "Billionaire boy back in town." Gracing the story is a picture of a smiling Oliver Queen with a hot woman watching him. The story is six inches long and has three subheads. Somebody was really trying to fill up that space. Dinah walks out of the elevator, which didn't seem to go anywhere. Lois, bested, looks upset.
