Writer: Greg Rucka
Artist: Mike Perkins
The news networks are running non-stop coverage of the first few parts of Lois' exposé. Typing furiously, Lois works to complete the last few installments. Her phone begins to ring, which goes unnoticed until Jessica Midnight answers the call. On the other end is Renee, who is currently in Chechnya with Elicia, pinned down by enemy fire. The two were sent there to retrieve information vital to Lois' work, but things went sideways. Renee runs off as Elicia provides cover fire. She returns in an enormous vehicle, allowing the two to make an escape. Once they're out of harm's way, they share a kiss. At the Daily Planet, the bullpen is a cacophony of voices as the staff work to handle the fallout from Lois' exposé. As she emerges from the elevator, the room falls silent. Lois makes her way to Perry's office and hands him a physical copy of the next installment. White promptly begins to read the piece. Lois informs him that the fifth and final segment should be finished by Wednesday. If it all checks out, they should be set to print by the following Sunday. Clark and Lois leave the office and go for a quick flight. When Lois is dropped off, she finds Renee waiting for her in the hotel room. The two discuss the necessity of truth and how sometimes, the truth isn't always easy to deal with. With the story fully out, it's business as usual in the political world as politicians and governments vehemently deny the accusations, pushing their spin to save face and avoid accountability. Larry Shaw surrendered himself to police and faces charges of conspiracy to commit murder, murder in the first degree, and attempted murder. Lois and Sister Clarice prepare to appear in an interview for national television. During the interview, they reveal the existence of parallel universes and fractured realities. Sister Clarice then brings up The Unity Project, which is designed to assist people affected by fractured identities and help them mentally heal. Elsewhere and presumably later, Alejandra - the hotel housekeeper wrongfully imprisoned by ICE - is released from custody. Lois, Superman, Renee, and Elicia look on with delight as Alejandra is reunited with her family.
