The Dungeon of Bondagetude. Parker Lewis walks in, definitely worse for wear since his eponymous show. "You ready to talk?" he asks. "What do you want from me?" Lex asks. "The truth about Club Zero," Parker tells him.
Sirens. Crowd. A body in a bag is pulled out of a shady-looking building. Clark runs up. Did he run all the way from Smallville? Clark uses his x-ray vision and sees that the body on the stretcher is minus a hand. Oh, poor Kasitch. Such indignities you suffer in this episode. Clark, who has spattered sweat beads on his shirt, asks an officer if he saw anybody else in the building. The officer shakes his head "no." Of course. You tell total strangers details about a police investigation. Surely. Clark asks where he can find Club Zero. The officer tells Clark he's six months and about twelve hours too late. It's the middle of the day, Clark. The place closed down, the policeman says. Clark walks off.
"Liar!" we hear. It's Parker Lewis, and he's lost it. He's yelling at Lex, who is grimacing mightily, perhaps from the vertigo. Parker spins him around like a record, and points the gun at Lex again. "Don't you remember? You killed me," Parker says, and we're right back where we started. Parker points the gun at Lex. "Daddy can't save you this time, Lex," he says. We watch Lex struggle. Gunshot goes off. Body falls. But Lex wasn't shot. Instead, Parker is the recipient of the honorary Villain of the Week Tidy Ending Bullet. Hey, it's Contractor Guy! He pushes a button, and suddenly the whole place is Club Zero. Sweet, now maybe we can see Lex shake his groove buttocks. "No more games, Lex. It's time for the truth," Contractor Guy says. We go to commercial.
Lex is swinging, but not in a way we'd like to see. He's still tied up to the ceiling. Contractor Guy shoots a chain, and Lex falls to the floor. "I know you," Lex says, correctly identifying the contractor who will now never get a competitive bid in for any Lex home renovation projects. Contractor Guy says that's his day job. He kicks Lex hard in the chest. Contractor Guy says he was Liv Lite's jailbird brother, and that she was his only lifeline in jail. This would all be a lot better if we'd known even a single thing about Liv going into this. Lex asks what Contractor Guy wants. He punches Lex in the stomach and repeats the question a few times. He says he wants revenge for his sister. Lex asks where she is. Contractor Guy says, "She's dead, Lex. She committed suicide a year ago." Again, we don't know enough about Liv to give a damn, really. Contractor Guy says that Lex didn't know because he cut her out of his life. Contractor Guy says she was never the same after Club Zero. He tells Lex that when the love of her life died, she had nothing to live for. Lex asks about Parker Lewis. Okay, are you ready for some lameness? Contractor Guy says that a few weeks after Liv Lite's funeral, he spotted a guy who looked just like Parker Lewis as a fry cook in a greasy spoon. He says that everyone has a double in the world. So how did you get him to wield a gun and look all evil and all that? This explanation? Suck-o, folks. He says the guy needed the money, and since Lex ruined Liv's life, he'd ruin Lex's. So why did he kill the guy, then? This makes no damned sense. I'm sorry, Lex. Your Club Zero episode deserves much better. Lex finally gives in. He decides to tell Contractor Guy the truth.
