Kara asks what happened to not showing off your powers. She turns, and just then, Martian Manhunter, his red eyes blazing, puts a choke on her. He tells her to step away from Kal-El. Step away from the farmboy! He has maple syrup! Things could get really messy up in here! Kara says that MM may have been able to bully her on Krypton, but not here. She throws his hand off and takes a swing at him. Clark is right there to catch her fist. The angle looks really awkward. That was not a great edit. Clark asks if they know each other. Kara accuses MM of having broken into her family's home in the middle of the night and kicking them out. So he was a landlord? Martian Manhunter says that after what her father did, they were lucky. Kara asks what he's doing here. Clark says that MM saved his life. He's a friend. Kara says that Clark's not very good at picking friends. Lana, in the background, should have said, "Hey!" Kara tells Kal-El to watch his back. Kara zips out at superspeed, exiting through the back door behind Lana. Lana asks if MM is from Krypton. He looks a little sheepish. "Mars, actually," Clark says. Lana, looking stunned, tells Clark that the two of them can catch up. She says she's going to meet Aunt Nell in Metropolis. She kisses Clark. And I guess all these delicious pancakes and the stolen syrup are just going to go to waste. What awful timing Martians have.
The Barnness of Eavesdropitude. Kara, who seems to have a crazy bright light shining on her when she uses her superhearing, is listening to what Clark and Martian Manhunter are saying. MM is warning Clark that Kara's arrival can't be taken lightly. We cut to Clark and MM on the front porch of the house. Clark says that Kara is his only family besides a disembodied voice in the arctic. Well, can't Clark just consider MM as a kind of...brother? MM tells Clark that Kara could use Clark's loneliness against him. He says she's dangerous. Martian Manhunter says that Kara's dad tried to assassinate Jor-El. Even though they were...brothers. MM says their hate for each other was stronger than their family bonds. Clark is like, "Well, fuck me, great. Anything else I need to worry about when one good thing happens in my life?" MM asks if Kara has her crystal. She has a crystal. She got it at the mall at Things Remembered. It's on a pewter Hello Kitty keychain. Clark says the crystal is missing and that they've been trying to find it. MM warns that if Kara finds the crystal, everything good in this world could be lost. Friday Night Lights could be cancelled. The Red Sox might win the World Series. Crazy Rudy Giuliani might win the '08 election! Nooooo! MM tells Clark to find the crystal before Kara does. What is this, The Legend of Zelda? MM tells Clark that trust isn't a luxury he can afford. Kara's light disappears as she stops listening.
