Commercials. Most of the cast besides Tom Welling and Kristin Kreuk does a spot for saving energy in front of the stairs of the Talon set. It's cute and short and everybody looks great. They invite you to visit the CW's Free2BeGreen Web site.
The hard, gray, shitty streets of Metropolis. A dark police cruiser rounds a corner where a red miniskirt and thigh-high boots stands next to a big "SALE!" sign. Hey, that looks a bit like Lana. Is this her secret? Clark, riding shotgun, looks grimly out at the dirty, Hellbound city. Danny Boy has an ashtray full of candies. He picks out of its wrapper and eats it. "That's quite a sweet tooth you got there," Clark says. Hey, man. I'm straight. But thanks. Danny says, in much too tough a manner, that his kid got him these candies last Halloween and now he can't stop eating them. "He loves the banana ones, I think root beer is the only one worth the effort. Help yourself." A serious discussion about candy flavors? I think I quite like Danny Boy. Danny asks his new fictional partner "Fordman" (or perhaps he said, "Foreman" but I'd like to think Clark is keeping Jocko Whitney's spirit alive) if he's never been in a squad car before. Clark ad-libs that he's never been in one this nice. Danny gets a chuckle out of that. He thinks Clark has a great sense of humor. Boy, does Clark have him fooled. Danny warns Clark about staying alive long enough to go surfing again. Clark uses that as a cue to inquire about the detective who was recently shot. "What's his name? Jones?" Clark asks. So sneaky! Danny says that a detective getting plugged is just another day in Metropolis. You'd think Clark would have heard about this before, working at the newspaper and all. Clark stares at Danny intensely. Danny looks back. Two hot dudes just driving around in the rain, trying to survive. It's the Gayest Look of the Episode. Clark tries to sound like a cop and fails miserably: "Blood on a badge is blood on a badge, right? No matter what city you're in." Clark watched one episode of Law & Order and suddenly he's Jesse L. Martin.
