Bad side of Metropolis. (Though, to be fair, I'm not sure we've seen a good part of town yet.) Clark and Zorro del BatChica walk together toward a group of ne'er-do-wells. She spots the guy Bald Thug was with. Clark pushes someone aside after he informs them, "This isn't a costume party." BatChica suggests that maybe Clark should put the brawn away and let the brains handle this. Sure, but where are they gonna get some of those? BatChica goes right up to Asian Thug and grabs his face, examining some scrapes on it. "Looks like somebody got the best of you," she tells him. She says that they're looking for his friend, the one with the snake tattoo. "So why are you talking to me?" Thug asks. They tell him they want something back from him. Clark notices some other thugs reaching for their guns. "You know what? Just tell him we're looking for him," Clark says, pulling BatChica away. BatChica's not too pleased with that. Clark tells her to wait. They watch Asian Thug reach for his cell phone and make a call. Clark hears the conversation between "Ono" and "Snake." They were last in line at the Henchmen Naming Store. Clark superzips past "Ono" and takes his phone. Can you hear me now? Damn, you really can't! Ono can't act, sadly.
Daily Planet flyover. Clark hands Chloe the cell phone and asks if she can find the last number dialed. Nice phone skills, Clark. ["Seriously. Even I know how to do that with even my crappy phone, and I still haven't figured out call waiting." -- Wing Chun] Chloe guesses her "go-to" status has been reinstated. She was worried she'd been replaced by "the leather-clad version." BatChica, dressed as mild-manned Office Girl, walks in. She's not wearing her glasses. "You always change in a phone booth?" Clark asks. BatChica says that the janitor was in the bathroom. Chloe watches as Office Girl digs in her bag and pulls out a box of Acuvue contact lenses. "I thought the glasses were fake," Chloe says. BatChica says that she's blind as a bat. Nice. She says that the mask doesn't look so good with the glasses over it. She puts the glasses on. "Acuvue to the rescue!" Chloe says, making a face to indicate that she knows how awful it is to have to fill in for Product Placement Pete. Now she's Clearly Commercial Chloe. Office Girl tells Clark that she likes his phone-stealing skills. She says that she could use a sidekick like him. "I'm not a sidekick," Clark mutters. Clark suggests that they use a reverse-phonebook to find Snake. "Got it covered," Office Girl says, as she sits in front of a Dell laptop. Chloe figures that's why Office Girl works here. Because nothing happens in Metropolis without going through The Daily Planet. "Way to put the pieces together, Brenda Starr," she replies. Office Girl traces the cell to a 555 number belonging to "Beatrice Krauss." She guesses it's a stolen phone. Clark asks if she can trace the outgoing calls. They get a list of calls, all highly illegal, and Chloe snarks that Snake is a fan of "Fantasy Phone." Clark sees a pizza delivery number and calls to place an order. He confirms the delivery address, which he didn't really know. Chloe says it's time to call the police. "No!" Clark and Office Girl say at the same time. Chloe thinks that Clark might be a little too close to this. He speechifies that if he doesn't stop lowlifes like this, what's the point in having powers? Chloe vehemently disagrees, but Clark, like a jerk, zips out of the room before she can finish. Office Girl smiles at Chloe. "Don't worry," she says. "I'll keep an eye on him."
