Lex, in his office, meets his lady assistant. They both watch Kara on security monitors he once said he'd remove from Lana's bedroom. The assistant says they haven't seen anything to suggest she's more than a pretty girl from Minnesota. Lex says he doesn't pay people to compliment her appearance. He says looks can be deceiving. The assistant tries to protest, but Lex says that her brain might contain answers to questions he's had for a long time. We need that nearly-empty brain! He says he's waited long enough. The assistant says the lab can be ready by the next day. Lex says that if she starts to get her memory back, the place should be locked down. He keeps watching her in bed. The camera zooms in on her face. Voyeuristic. Shouldn't she be showering soon?
Clark's cage. Evil Patton just keeps torturing Clark. Isn't he tired of that yet? Papa Luthor comes in and sees what's happening. He yells at the guy to stop it. Now! He does, reluctantly. Papa says he built the cell to contain Clark, not torture him. Patton says he was hired because of his experience dealing with meteor freaks. Papa warns that if anything happens to Clark, Evil Patton Oswalt will be held responsible. Patton chews on that. Papa watches Clark lying in the cell. Clark is still groaning.
Commercials. Will Smith is legend!
Papa Luthor is in his office at LuthorCorp having a stern disagreement with someone via cell phone. He says things like, "I don't agree with you," and "absolutely not." Papa Luthor has already voted in the primary! Leave him alone! Chloe and Lana walk in, sans invitation or security passes. "I'll get back to you," Papa tells the person on the phone. Does that mean you're voting for McCain? Hello? Are you there, sir? Papa tells Lana and "Miss Sullivan" that he's discreetly searching government agencies for any sign of Clark. Oh noes, the Treasury Department's got him! They're making him process IRS forms really, really fast! Lana thinks Papa Luthor might be able to help in another way. She shows him a tiny baggie holding the Kryptonite Taser dart. Papa takes it out of the bag and does a quick examination. He says it looks like an electrode from a Taser gun. "This is Kryptonite," he says. You know, not everything that's green on this show has to be Kryptonite. Maybe it's a Glo-stick. Chloe says they found it in the barn. Lana thinks that the only people who know about Clark's weakness are the people in the room. What about Pete? And Brainiac? And like a gazillion residents of Belle Reve? It's not such a huge secret, Lana. "What about Kara?" Papa offers. He reminds them that she just moved in with Lex. We know, dude, we know. Papa thinks her memory might be coming back. He slyly goes to his briefcase and puts the Taser evidence in there as he says he'd hate for his son to be involved in any of this. "This is Clark's worst fear," Chloe says. Bigger than being outed? Papa brings up LX Technologies. He says they're doing contracts for military research. He promises to look into it and see if there's any electro-shocking involved. "If he harms Clark, I will kill him," Lana says, trying to sound tough. It doesn't work out so well for her. Papa look surprised at that. He says that he'll deal with Lex; it's his son, after all. He says he wants Clark back safely as much as she does. Nice lying. Really. Top-notch.
