He's just stepping out onto the rooftop where Chloe and Oliver are waiting. Clark can hardly believe it's her. She runs into his arms for a big hug. She says she doesn't have long, but he wants an explanation for the two guards and the flashbacks. Oliver and Chloe explain about the whole Matrix situation they're in. The government wants to figure out how to turn Clark's powers (and Oliver's skills) off and on, which is why he doesn't have abilities here. If they choose to work with the government, they get to keep their powers. Clark's still confused about the flashbacks, so Chloe explains how she was trying to disconnect them but things went badly. Oy! So much of this show is people explaining stuff to other people who weren't in previous scenes where stuff was already explained. Group scenes! Look into it! Guards are advancing up the steps toward the roof. Clark's still kind of unsure. "Look, Clark," Chloe says, "I can get you out of this world of weird, but only if you truly believe it's fake." She's talking too fast for his brain to process. The guards pound on the door, but Oliver's blocked it with a 2X4. Chloe urges Clark to follow her to the roof's ledge. "We have to jump," she tells him. "It's the only way you can get through the portal and into the real world." Clark still has questions. She asks him to trust her. A helicopter circles overhead, scanning the roof with a searchlight. Chloe offers Clark her hand. He reaches out, but hesitates. "I can't," he whispers, pulling away. "I'm sorry." With an apologetic look, Chloe and Oliver leap from the roof and plummet through a midair flash of light.
