Daily Planet. Clark confronts Lois about the billboard. When she tries to explain herself by saying that Booster is trying to replace him, Clark reminds her it's not a competition. He shows her the brochure. The scarab, he says, is extraterrestrial technology. It bonded with one of Kord's scientists like a parasite. "The guy's name was Dan Garret." Dan + Scarab went on to kill three people before they were stopped, and Garret died when the scarab was removed. "Kord hired Booster to bring it back in exchange for the key to the city," Clark says. Lois is aghast. "Your key to the city," she says. "He's been here like a day!" Focus, woman! What part of "killed three people" struck you as less important than Clark schmoozing with the mayor? She wants Clark to make his debut as the Blur, but he declines because his nerdification isn't complete or some crap. Maybe they could get a bookworm to bond with Clark and speed up the process. Lois gets a call from Booster and hands Clark the phone. "Hey, Blur Boy!" Booster greets him. "I mean Clark." Clark doesn't seem very puzzled by that. He tells Booster they need to find Kord's missing weapon.
