Mercy drove Rickman off after he convinced an environmentalist to kill himself, having been convinced by him to ignore his body lying on the car. During a banquet in Smallville that Lex Luthor attended, Mercy stopped him from going for his jacket before Rickman had her stand aside. Mercy meets up with Lex again to dissuade him from stopping Rickman from buying the Kent Farm, but Lex turns it around to a discussion on her. When she counters that he's in the shadow of Lionel Luthor, Lex points out that she's in the shadow of a man who'll throw her away once she's outlived her usefulness, earning him a punch before she walks off. Mercy then arrived with Rickman at a gas station where Kyle Tippet was at. After Kyle convinces Rickman to kill himself, he convinces Mercy to go find a better life than as Rickman's driver.
