Daily Planet. Chloe stands by the copy machine. As Clark walks in, Chloe says that she's waving the white flag. Clark apologizes for being so hard on her for the Oliver thing. Chloe says that they could all breathe easier if they could find "Blonde Ambition." Chloe says that she has no leads. "Lana might," says Clark. "Twist," Chloe responds. Lame twist. Clark says that Lana's been able to keep track of Lex's projects by piggybacking on the Luthor mansion server. Chloe rolls her eyes like she was being stupid for not thinking of that herself. Oy. Making Lana smarter than Chloe is just wrong on so many levels. Chloe figures out that Fishnet must have known what was happening because she was also on the Daily Planet server. Clark asks whether Chloe can figure out how to find the people logged on the server the night before. Chloe disses herself for dropping the ball as the go-to girl, and gives Lana praise as the new-and-improved model. Such blasphemy. Blasphemy, I say! Clark says that Lana did come through, but that he's not about to let Oliver poach "the best sidekick in town." Chloe smiles at that. She looks up the paper's logs and finds that Dinah Lance was the only person in the system the night before. A paper with resources and correspondents all over the world with only one person logged into the entire network? I call bullshit. Again. Clark doesn't see the connection. Chloe asks why Dinah's being brunette makes a difference. She says that the villain could be as blonde as Chloe really is. So Chloe admits to dyeing? Interesting. Chloe magically Photoshops a blonde wig on Dinah. "Canary yellow," says Chloe. "Maybe we should call her the Yellow Raven." Clark thinks that "Black Canary" has a better ring to it. Chloe thinks that the secret identity makes sense because Dinah has a hardline view of crime and comes from a family of cops. Chloe starts tapping away, hacking into Dinah's computer. She finds a bank transfer from the Bank of Metropolis happening at that moment. Why would Dinah be doing all this stuff through her work computer? Clark asks whether Chloe can interrupt the transfer. She does, giving Clark a playful look.
In another part of the building, Black Canary (ironic name for a white chick?) lands dramatically from what must have been eight feet up. Was she stuck to the ceiling tiles? You know, when you're indoors, you really don't need to hop around like that. Save it for the rooftops, sister. There's a new sign that reads "LEX LUTHOR CEO." She walks toward the door by the sign, but Clark whooshes in and stands in her way. She thinks that Clark is one of "Green Bean's" little accomplices; now that he's tied up, Clark's out of work. Eh, not so much. Clark asks what Black Canary did with Oliver. She cocks her head to the side like a curious...canary, I guess. Clark says that Lex is the bad guy here. Black Canary says that even rich guys who buy the press deserve some justice. She's convinced that she's on the right side, even as she calls Clark "Studboy." The stud boy? Really? She lets slip that she knows Green Arrow's real identity. Clark warns her to do her research. He asks why a rich person like Oliver would waste his time stealing files from Lex: "What line did Lex feed you?" Black Canary looks confused for a moment, and then says that Lex told her they were stealing trade secrets from his plants. Clark guesses that she doesn't know what was in those factories. She tries to walk past Clark. He stops her and asks Oliver's location. Dude, have you tried his apartment? Because he's right there. She tries to spin-kick Clark in the chest, but it just rebounds her backward. She falls and slides. Clark disappears and reappears in front of her. Black Canary does her sonic growl. Clark unwisely uses his superhearing to blast his own eardrums. He holds his hands over his ears, in pain. Everything goes bright and slow-motion. Clark falls. It hurts so much. It's like hearing Al and Miles talk about future plans for the show. Make it stop! It finally does. Clark's ear is bleeding, improbably.
