We see three boys. One of them is Li'l Lex. Another one is young Ollie. The third is presumably Jason Teague. They tell the girl to go again. She's reluctant, but goes ahead and counts to 10 in a game of Hide and Seek. The boys scramble. She peeks at around "3." Cheater! Ollie hides behind a grandfather clock. Jason jumps in a giant chest. Li'l Lex looks around, searching for some hiding. He goes through a closet door and ducks down. He sucks on an aspirator. He hears men talking through a grate near the floor. One of the voices is Papa Luthor. They're talking about Patricia's vivid imaginings and something about the death of Virgil Swann. Papa Luthor is telling the other two men that if they don't open an envelope, Dr. Swann's findings could be "as mythical as Mt. Olympus." Papa is rocking the retro avant-garde turtleneck. One of the other men holding a Veritas envelope says that Virgil will be here any minute. Edward Teague says that Veritas is the greatest secret the world will ever know. Then it won't be a secret, will it? The other guy, Robert Queen, says that they were supposed to use their money and power to protect the secret, not expose it. Papa is trying to persuade them not to blindly follow Dr. Swann. Papa thinks that just because Swann made the discovery doesn't give him the right to keep it to himself. Silly astronomer! Papa wants the envelope. Queen's not handing it over. He says they're supposed to meet The Traveler first before they decide how to control him. Papa, paranoid, thinks that Queen has been working with Swann in secret and that Edward and his wife, Genevieve, have been "Galavanting" around the world looking for the Power Stones. Edward says that this is bigger than the Teagues or the Queens or the Luthors. This is Trump-level, baby! Robert says that Veritas has been around for a long time and that Edward's family has been protecting the secret with sacrifices for centuries. Papa says that The Traveler is coming now and that they have to act. He thinks that what's in the envelope will give them ultimate power. He doesn't think the other men trust themselves with that power. They both tell Papa that they agreed not to open the envelope unless The Traveler became a threat. Robert is planning on flying to Zurich with Dr. Swann to lock the secret away. Nice giving away the location, Bob. He thinks that power should be left in the hands of the Gods. A door opens. Li'l Lex is watching this whole scene. Edward takes a necklace from a table and opens it. There's a key inside. As Li'l Lex watches, a wheelchair holding a silent Dr. Swann passes in front of him.
