Clark and Lois make googly eyes at each other for a while and then turn their attention back to Godfrey. "We know who our real heroes are," he says, "and they are not these faceless mutants!" As he continues railing against the "secret vigilante agenda," Lois tries to reassure Clark. "I'm sure the Blur knows he's just taking potshots to sell books." Clark, still maintaining the ruse, is sure the Blur doesn't even know about this guy. His fidgety discomfort betrays him, though, which makes Lois smile a little. She stops smiling when Godfrey goes after the Blur specifically, calling him a "pariah so disfigured he doesn't dare show his face." The camera cuts to Clark's supermodel profile. Lois, fed up, stomps off toward the podium. Clark tries (although not very hard) to stop her. But before she can get to him, she's distracted by the billboard that Godfrey is just unveiling. It bears the same symbol as his book, but with the slogan "Stop the Menace!" As the crane pulls off the cover, something goes wrong and the billboard starts to topple. It falls toward the screaming crowd. Clark zips forward, holding up his hand up in a heroic pose, ready for the catch. It doesn't come. Instead, the billboard stops a few meters above, leaving Clark standing there looking like a goof. He makes a "huh?" face. The billboard flips up, revealing Kara hovering in midair, wearing a red and blue costume. The crowd cheers as she holds the errant billboard aloft in one hand. Godfrey looks annoyed. Lois pops up behind Clark. "Isn't that your cousin, Clark?" Clark is speechless. Kara winks and flies away, off-screen, because they've spent most of the episode's SFX money on gas ravens. Somebody save the budget!
