The woods. Jimmy is wandering around, taking pictures of nothing in particular. He picks up a hunk of tree bark. He hears something stirring nearby, and scary music plays. Suddenly, we're on Lost. Jimmy turns, and there's Gloria, Park Ranger, standing behind him. He jumps, and stammers that she scared the "blank" out of him. She asks why he's out here. He says he's just "compelled." "By what?" Gloria asks. "A girl," Jimmy replies. He's trying to get a photo to earn some respect. Gloria says that Jimmy has her respect. He jokes that a girl made him drop a log, and then asks if Gloria's seen any weird vine that might be attacking people. Gloria gets very close, putting her hands on Jimmy's cheeks, and says that she can help him to find what he's looking for. Jimmy gets very nervous and says he's got a girl. And she wasn't on a rejected pilot. Gloria throws Jimmy onto the ground, telling him, "I don't wanna be your girl." She bends down and gets on top of him: "I just wanna wrap myself around you." Unconvincing CGI vines emerge from the ground. It's the Not-So-Evil-Dead! A giant root plunges right into Jimmy's mouth as he opens it to scream. That is one big root. My goodness. Have you ever seen a root like that? I bet Jimmy hasn't.

Glassy buildings in Metropolis. In the background, we see a familiar clock tower. Inside, Oliver is standing on a yellow yoga mat, shirtless. Only he's standing upside down. That is, he's doing a mondo handstand. He's also barefoot, his toesies up in the air. A blonde assistant is telling Lois Lane that she can't come in there. She apologizes to "Mr. Queen," saying that the woman doesn't have an appointment. Lois is carrying a giant gift basket with plastic wrap around it. Oliver, still handstanding, says it's all right; she's expected. Oliver is all sweaty. He drops to a normal, right-side-up posture and smiles. Lois says that she must have underestimated the mental power of yoga. Oliver says that the focus benefits his work. "And your premonitions," Lois adds. It looks like Oliver has "The CW" logo branded into his left pectoral. Oliver guesses that, after Lois's "lamentable blunder," it was either this or a firing from her boss. Oliver is surprised by the fruit basket. Lois says that Oliver must be busy with all his "bendy stuff," and that she won't take much of his time. "Peanuts?" he asks, waving a small can at her. "I'm allergic." Lois says she'll try to remember that. She launches into a speech about what a great state senator MamaKent is, as Oliver keeps digging. He pulls out a very small green apple. "Childhood bobbing trauma?" Lois asks. Oliver asks if Lois is hungry. She huffs that she realizes she was rude the other day, and that she's just trying to apologize. Oliver sits. He starts cutting the apple with a small knife and eating it. Pouty, Lois says that if Oliver holds it against MamaKent, he'll be missing the opportunity to work with a great woman. Oliver is ignoring Lois because the apple is so much more interesting than she. Lois takes the hint. She says she was prematurely accurate in her opinion of Oliver. Wow, that's a pretty shit apology right there. As she's walking out, Oliver says, "Miss Laaaaaane?" He puts the apple and knife down, and then stands. He says that if Lois wants his full and undivided attention, she can go with him to Lex Luthor's ball. She says that while downsizing her for an entire evening would make great sport (for him?), she'll pass. Oliver says that if MamaKent is as great as Lois says, then it's going to take more than a few minutes of Lois's groveling to get his support. That line of dialogue made no sense at all. Lois sighs that she doesn't have a costume. How about your jogging attire? Oliver thinks on that one. Luckily, he's prepared. He hands Lois a big white box with a big white bow. Lois opens it. It's a very nice and expensive-looking royal blue outfit. "Even in my size," Lois marvels. "Mr. Queen, have you been rummaging through my drawers?" Instead of going blue, Oliver just says he has a knack for sizing people up. And yet he's still talking to Lois. Lois smiles in her special confrontational way.
