We move next to a cathedral with an imposing facade. Once inside, the camera pans over a painting of the Pietà to drive home the point of lost sons. Gordon Godfrey walks in front of the painting, Bible in hand, and takes a seat in a pew. Beside him, Lois is sitting with a Bible in front of her face. She snaps it shut and remarks, "Not a bad read." She asks him to comment on his super-save earlier. "Bless my soul," he says, recognizing her. He tells her to get in line if she wants a quote. She tells him to save the holier-than-thou stuff. "I have enough of you blindly taking potshots at Metropolis's heroes." He calls her a blind follower of the vigilantes. Lois points out that one of them just saved his life. Godfrey disagrees: "She risked people's lives in a ploy to undermine the message of my book." He calls Kara a "blonde bimbo" and his people will dig up something on her and all the super-powered mutants. Lois quietly threatens to poke around in his life, too. Godfrey has nothing to hide. "But I do know one vigilante who does," he says. "Green Arrow? A connection of mine -- who has toyed with him -- has given me evidence that the archer is really a certain depraved playboy. Your ex-boyfriend, I believe." Godfrey plans to reveal the secret identity in a special online chapter of his book. [Unless Lois decides to reveal it first, torpedoing his scoop, because how does he know what she'll do with that top secret, headline-grabbing info? - Zach] "Even his true believers' faith will be shaken," Godfrey says. His tone is very quiet and almost genial, but the evil still comes through. Kudos to the actor. Lois sits stony-faced in the pew as Godfrey gets up and leaves.
LuthorCorp. Oliver's in his office, doing some kind of... naked Tai Chi or something. Whatever it is, it involves him being sweaty and shirtless and moving around in slow yet precise ways. He stretches out his arm in a way that makes him remember the time he gave Chloe an archery lesson. Where the scene ended before with Chloe letting go of the arrow (and more), this time we see the arrow hit the bullseye. Chloe, smiling turns to look up at him, and finds him giving her a very serious and searching look. Pretty guitar music plays. Chloe raises up on her toes, puts her hands behind his neck, and kisses him. He wraps his arms around her and just when things start getting hot and heavy, we flash back to the present. Oliver punches through a plank of wood. Lois walks in, having just witnessed this act of cellulose abuse, and gives him a round of applause. Then she makes a joke about Mortal Kombat and a wood chipper. "I'm glad to see Africa managed to survive the whole Lois Lane invasion," he greets her. "Tell me what brings little Miss Cut-and-Run back to town." It's friendly banter and the towel she hurls at him is equally amiable. She says destiny brought her back. He still has that folding screen with the green arrows all over it. His identity is going to come as a shock to absolutely no one when Godfrey publishes that chapter. Also, there's a giant vase full of lemons and limes that is almost more distracting than Oliver's glistening torso. He says he knows Lois was trying to make a "preemptive strike" by leaving, hoping to hurt Clark before she could let him down later down the road. Now she's back because she regrets it. "Easy with the dress-down, buddy," she says. "I just ran for the hills because I thought I was going to mess things up for Clark." That's... sort of what Oliver just said. She says something about Clark's chocolate mixing with her peanut butter that gives me a horrible, horrible mental image. Oliver regards her thoughtfully. "I've never known you to surrender to anyone, or anything." She changes the subject to why she's really there: Gordon Godfrey's threat. Oliver thinks they should just ignore him, but Lois is insistent that Godfrey will expose him. "Well, maybe people deserve to know the truth," Oliver says. "People deserve to be saved," Lois says. The heroes can't do that if they come out of the shadows. But Oliver thinks the cost of keeping his secret has been too high. Lois, incensed, says she'll do something about Godfrey if Oliver won't. Oliver just looks sweaty in response.
