The Torch. Gary Tru-d'oh! walks in. Chloe is sitting at a pretty green iMac. Smiling, she tells him that she sent his partial license plate info from the hit-and-run to her contact the DMV. He's supposed to fax her when he finds something. Gary hands over a rolled-up piece of paper that he says took him all night. It's a legal contract specifying that he not be used on only one episode as the week's kryptovillain. Sadly, I don't think it's legally binding. Chloe opens up the picture of "Chloe if she were a teen pop sensation," and says it's beautiful. "So are you," Gary says. Hubba hubba. He says that when he got hit by that car and was lying in the road, he kept picturing Chloe's face. Is he trying to say she looks like the front grill of a station wagon? "Why me?" Chloe asks. He says he always had the biggest crush on her. So big, in fact, that it warrants an episode title. Gary says he was about to die and regretful that he never got to tell Chloe how he felt. Chloe looks awfully touched. He says that when Chloe started emailing him at the hospital, he knew this was his chance. Chloe smiles as if she's about to cry, and it makes her look about twelve. Gary says he came all the way back for her. Strummy music starts to play. They kiss. A lot. As they do, we cut back to see a bunch of office supplies -- scissors, a stapler, a mug, a little green alien doll -- rise and float in the air. The camera does a special-effects spin around Gary and Chloe, with those objects in the air. It looks fake as all get-out, but since Chloe is a teenager in love, we'll forgive it. As they stop, the green alien is in the foreground. Chloe pulls back, and everything falls. She looks freaked out. Gary explains that, after the accident, he found he could move things. With his MIND! No meteor rocks are mentioned, although it's kind of implied that they had something to do with this. Chloe calls his power "telekinesis." He asks if she's freaked out. Chloe says she's seen stranger. Like, have you seen that show Roswell? That's some freaky shit. ["And if you haven't seen it, you're about out of chances to rectify the situation." -- Wing Chun] Gary says he doesn't want to end up on Chloe's wall. Sweetly, she says he won't. Chloe leans forward and says, "Now, let's make everything float again." I'll have to use that line sometime. They kiss again. Before anything (even Gary) can rise again, Clark busts in looking for Chloe. Gary smirks at Clark, then tries to look serious. Clark asks Chloe if he can see her outside. Give it up, Clark. You've lost this round, my super-mopey friend. After Clark and Chloe leave, a fax machine rings and chirps. Gary looks at it as a paper rolls out. "Got a Match" it says in heavy black marker over some typed info. Music of intrigue plays.
