Papa Luthor thinks about his options in the LuthorCorp office. There's a very noticeable green-screen effect as BatChica crashes in through a window behind him. He turns, but no one is there. Then BatChica does appear, on his other side. She grabs him and goes right into hero speech mode. "You kicked people out of their homes!" she says, "so you could develop Suicide Slums for profit!" She accuses Papa Luthor of killing her mother when she got in Papa Luthor's way: "No one escapes justice, Luthor, not even you!" Weird shot of a LuthorCorp box nearby. Papa tries to empathize; he says he grew up on the same mean streets she did. As she pushes Papa Luthor toward the window, he tells BatChica that he also lost his parents to a senseless crime. "It wasn't senseless. It was calculated!" she yells. She holds him by one hand out the window.
Clark appears, and tells BatChica to let the police do their job: "If he's guilty, he'll pay!" He has a very shaky understanding of the U.S. legal system, I see. Shiny lipstick. BatChica asks Clark if his father were murdered, and he were face-to-face with the killer, what he'd do. Clark, keeping his distance, asks what happens if BatChica's wrong. Papa tries to get her to listen to Clark. Clark says he knows what's in BatChica's heart: anger. He says that he feels it too, but that taking Papa Luthor's life won't change anything. "Yes it will!" BatChica screams. It really will. He won't get to kill other people. Clark asks her to think about her mother and whether she'd want BatChica to do this. BatChica hesitates. "Let him go," Clark tells her. BatChica says that she killed a man. And she knows Clark. (When did they get this sudden deep understanding of each other?) She says that Clark would never let her just walk out of there after what she's done. She tells Clark to be the real hero. She drops Papa Luthor. Clark superspeeds toward the window. He grabs Papa Luthor and pulls him back in. BatChica leaps out herself. Clark and Papa Luthor stand at the broken window. Papa rubs his neck. "Exceptional woman," he says. "Grossly misguided." "She's been through a lot," Clark says stiffly. Papa thinks Clark saved him for her sake, not his. "Whatever the reason...thank you, son," Papa says, placing an evil hand on Clark's shoulder. The camera pulls back from that as they both stand in the high-altitude night breeze.
