Kent Farm at night. Clark watches Lex's car drive away from just outside the barn. What was the time lapse on that? Enough for a barn quickie. As Clark looks wistfully at the trail of risen dust, Kara is there to insert some blonde hair and breasts into the proceedings. She tells Clark that he shouldn't concern involve himself in "their problems." Clark says he wants to help his friend. "You can't trust him," she says of Lex. She's really good at that standing and not emoting thing. She says it's human nature. Clark's not your bitch; don't hang your shit on him! Clark says that "they" are the people he cares about. Kara says that'll make it hard when they all betray him. Clark looks clueless or, as we've come to know it, "Clarkish." Kara tells "Kal-El" that he's not meant for this world. "You were meant for mine," she says. He tells her that his name is "Clark," and asks why he should believe her. She says it's the truth. Clark asks where she's been for the last fourteen years. If he joins her, she says, all his questions will be answered. Come, Luke Skywalker. Join the Empire! "That's not good enough," Clark says. He starts to walk away. She grips his arm. "Come with me," she says. Clark steps toward her and they float, high above the basketball rim, in cheesy CGI. Everyone sing along, now: "I can open your eyes! Take you wonder by wonder. Over, sideways, and under. On a magic carpet ride!" There needs to be a comical monkey here. Clark asks how she's doing this. Aw, man, well, man she had some magic dust! Yeah, magic dust! A little bit for Kara, a little bit for Jor-El, a little bit more for Jor-El, a little bit more for Jor-El! Kara says that Clark is doing it, too. Drug fiend! "I can't fly," Clark says. "Not yet," she tells him. She says that this is just the beginning. Of a really, really long scene. She says he has no idea how powerful he'll become. We zoom between the two and get a shot of the full moon. Sadly, it's not made of cheese. I think I'll go have some cheese now from the fridge. That moon got me hungry.
