Clark goes back to the <i>Planet</i> to apologize to Chloe for blowing up at her earlier.

Meanwhile, Black Canary goes to Lex's manor and reveals she's checked up on Lex's operations and they're not what Lex claimed. Lex shoots her but Green Arrow arrives and the two men spar back and forth, gun against arrow, fist against fist. Black Canary manages to recover enough to dispose of a guard and then throws a knife at Lex, while Green Arrow fires arrows as well and Lex shoots back. Clark arrives at superspeed, takes in the situation, and deflects the bullets and arrows before getting Black Canary away. The knife takes Lex in the shoulder and Green Arrow bids him better luck next time before leaving.
Later, Lois goes to see Oliver as he cleans up the penthouse and asks for her another chance. However, she says she can't handle someone who has a dual identity like his and walks away, crying. Later, she's eating ice cream at her apartment over the Talon when Clark comes in to console her. Lois admits she has feelings for Oliver but she recognizes he has a higher calling, just like her father. However, she doesn't want to live with someone who has no room in their life for anything else so she broke it off so she wouldn't have to go through that again.
