LuthorCorp. Lex is handing over his Veritas painting to Papa Luthor, who chuckles and asks, "Where did you find this?" Lex says he got a visit from Patricia Swann. Lex says he made it around the time he was learning his way around a paintbrush. Papa Luthor says slyly that if Lex is looking for a little validation for his childhood artistry, it's a little late. Actually, Lex was hoping you would put it on the LuthorCorp refrigerator. He brought magnets. Lex says it stands for Veritas and asks Papa to explain what up wit dat. Papa breezily explains it was just misguided musings of young idealists. "We took ourselves much too seriously, I'm embarrassed to say," he tells Lex as he pours a drink. Are Luthors always lying if they're pouring a drink while they talk? Lex asks what secret might be so big they'd have to build a whole group around it. "Skull & Bones, Scroll & Key, the Delphic," Papa Luthor says, "the rich have secret societies, the others have poker nights." The Others have a poker night? That must be wicked. Lex says that all the other Veritas members are dead. "Why'd you kill them?" he asks. Papa, drinking, tells Lex to give it a rest and asks him to let "it" rest in peace. Lex says he can't do that. Papa, suddenly pouncing, hands the painting back to him and tells his son to take it for what it is: "A reminder of what you could have become." Ouch! That's hitting below the belt, even for a Luthor. Lex says that if Papa Luthor won't tell him the truth, he's sure Patricia will. He walks out, leaving Papa to dial his phone. "Yeah, he was just here. He delivered your message. I'm ready, Patricia, to make a deal," Papa says.
Lana is shutting the back of Chloe's Yaris, which is packed with break-in supplies like bottled water and a flashlight. They're just outside The Talon. Lana shows Chloe a blueprint she somehow acquired. It shows a secret passageway connected to a hill she says is pretty far off the road. Lana says it'll take a while to climb. "If it means saving Clark, I'd climb Mt. Everest," Chloe says, rolling up her window. And there goes the Yaris.
