We see a shifty-looking guy exiting a pharmacy carrying a big paper bag. As soon as he sees the police cruiser pulling up, he runs. Clark slowly gets out of the passenger side like he's an old man, and the weather's making his knees creaky. Danny runs after the guy, telling Clark to make sure the people inside are all right. We see Danny huffing and puffing down the street, yelling, "Stop right there!" The robber, of course, does nothing of the sort. He tips over a Dumpster of plastic recyclables, instead. Danny, hand on his sidearm, loses the guy after that environmental disaster. He breathes heavily. The criminal, who looks like a young John Turturro with his hair standing up, draws a gun and sneaks up behind Danny. Danny doesn't seem very aware of his surroundings. We hear a gunshot. Danny turns. The robber falls back and lands on some trash. Clark is standing right there. Danny sees the smoking gun lying on the ground. "You run track, Fordman?" he asks. Clark says, lamely, "A little here and there." Danny grabs the robber and cuffs him. He says he owes Clark one. As Danny takes the guy away, reading his Miranda rights, Clark opens his palm. He's holding a tiny bullet. [So cute! - Z]
Isis. Lana loads in a flash drive to a very cool desk USB hub. It glows! This scratches my geek itch and is relevant to my interests! Lana is wearing a Bluetooth headset. She says she's uploading files taken from Tess's Wi-Fi network. On this show, the worst security threat is bad wireless Internet. On Lana's screen are pictures of bulky male bodies. They're like schematics to build big humanoid robots. [Please say Lex is building a battlesuit please say Lex is building a battlesuit. - Z] "I'm transmitting data to you now," she tells the person on the other end of the line. A message appears on the screen: "Data stream recorded from unknown WIFI device." Yeeks. Lana's got a crap network, too. Lana types furiously. Her nostrils flare in frustration. Unless you are prepared to rumble or call pest control, do not anger Formerly Pink Squirrel. If Formerly Pink Squirrel becomes enraged, back away slowly and watch for karate kicks.
Backyard barbecue. Danny Boy is cooking up some steaks, wieners and burgers. He's wearing a civilian hoodie. Clark is there and he's toned down his usual colors, instead wearing a gray T-shirt and dark jacket. Danny's little boy comes up to him and hugs him. The kid has on a blue shirt, red caps and a mask over his eyes. Clark kneels and asks if he's supposed to be Warrior Angel. "No, I'm Red-Blue Blur," the kid says. It's not very catchy a name, is it? Poor kid. He runs off. Danny shakes his head in disgust. He says it's a losing battle. "Don't worry Dad, he'll grow out of it." Whoah, hot Mama. Danny's wife is very, very pretty. She introduces herself to our "Joe." Clark says it's nice to meet her in person. And how! She figures out that Clark must be talking about the photo in the car. Danny's busted. She's surprised he's still carrying that thing around. She says it was from their senior year. Danny kisses her right on the lips. Aw. Danny's kid calls for his dad. He fell and hurt his knee. As Danny goes to help, the wife, Suzie, thanks Clark for looking out for her husband. She says Danny was really torn up over losing his last partner. He lost WHAT!? This is dangerous!
