Commercials. Wow, lots more Star Wars commercials. Videogames. Pepsi. Ringtones. Good thing Lucas isn't selling out or anything.
Lair of Lex. We get a rare low profile view of his desk. He's got both hands above the desk. Lex is examining papers -- what look like a map and a letter. "What are you doing, son?" Papa Luthor asks as he enters. He asks if it's a new venture -- something worthy of a captain of industry. Lex says he's continuing where Papa Luthor left off, and can't talk now. Papa says they'd better talk, because Jane Seymour thinks Lex has the missing element. The Fifth Element? "The one from China," Papa clarifies. Lex leans forward and tells Papa that he's been raised to be smarter than that. He thinks Papa is using Jane as a threat. Papa tells Lex that he's there as a father who's concerned about the safety of his son. Lex is skeptical. Papa says that Jane killed Margot Kidder for an element: "Do you think she'd hesitate to do the same to you?" Lex is unfazed: "I don't have it." He adds that even if he did, he'd never trust Papa Luthor. Papa stops Lex as he starts to leave the room. If Lex was hiding the documents he was looking at, why would he leave the room and leave them lying around? Papa tells Lex that they don't have a lot of time left to spend together. Aw, that's sad. He says that Lex can spend the rest of that time being mistrustful, or he can accept that Papa Luthor is his father and loves him. I'm not sure what to make of this formerly benevolent, but now Bastardous, yet loving to his son Papa Luthor. He seems a bit mixed up, doesn't he? Lex -- who has probably heard this before -- is not convinced. He walks out of the room. Papa tells Lex as he leaves that Jane Seymour is dangerous. He asks Lex to watch his back. "I always do," Lex says, showing his back to Papa Luthor. Lex is an expert back-watcher. Just not always his own.
Kent Farm by day. The cows have stopped caring that there's a TV show going on around them. MamaKent -- who looks like she just got home (she works an all-nighter?) -- asks where Evan is. Clark says he's in the barn with Lana. Bo remarks on how amazing that growth spurt was. I guess that kid really is going to just grow himself! MamaKent says it's scary. She wants him to see a doctor. Bo and Clark have heard this one before, too. Clark asks what they're going to tell the doctor: "That he's a second-generation meteor freak?" Ow. That one stung. Clark echoes his parents' old fear that the kid will end up in a lab somewhere. Clark suggests that they take the kid to someone who has experience with the effects of meteor rock. Bo instantly knows who it is. He says he doesn't want to put Evan's life in Lex's hands. Wow, Clark. Given how much you've been trying to keep the family's secrets from Lex, this seems like a pretty boneheaded move, even for you. Nevertheless, Clark wins the argument by asking his folks what they'd do if Clark were in trouble and Lex was the only person who could help. That's a pretty cheap way to win an argument.
