At the Daily Planet, Lois is planning out the wedding on a diorama and talks to Clark by phone, telling him that they'll have problems if any of her father's soldiers recognize Clark's "super friends." She asks where he is and Clark claims he's running errands, unaware that she has seen him on a viral web video showing him on Big Ben. Clark runs back to Metropolis and realizes that he's in trouble, and Lois shows him worldwide discussion of the Blur's recent activities now that the VRA has been repealed. She warns Clark that is putting his secret identity at work, and shows him an article she held back about heroes going public. It features his photo on the byline, and Lois warns that people will start to connect him to the Blur. She suggests they find him a new disguise...

Episode Quotes
Clark: I really should get to work.
Lois: Oh, no, you do not get to whoosh your way out of this one. Why don't I just save you the trouble and I'll just superspeed off all on my own, okay? Whoosh!

Lois: It's only a fraction of a centimeter. How'd you be able to see that?
Clark: Microvision.
Lois: Micro... vision?
Clark: Well, it's my power, I can call it whatever I want.

Chloe: Get out of my head!
Desaad: It's the heart, actually. The window into the soul. Both mankind's greatest asset and his weakness.

Chloe: Go to hell.
Desaad: No. It'll be here soon enough.
