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.
Stately Luthor Manor. Depressing music is playing. No crap rock this week. Lex enters his lair, apologizing to Dr. Knox for being late. Knox tells him that Mussolini once killed a train conductor for being late. Nice to meet you, too. Asshole. Knox says he's more patient than "Il Duce." The douche? Lex says that Mussolini went down in defeat. Yeah, no wonder, with a name like "Douche." Lex isn't about that shit. Knox toots his own horn about curing meteor freaks and compares himself to Lex's incompetent scientists. Lex says the results are impressive, but that Knox's practices concern him. Knox says that he cuts their cerebral wiring, Lex pays him, end of story. That's a pretty short story. Lex says that Knox has been conducting unauthorized tests involving meteor rock concentration in patients' organs. Knox blah blahs about how geniuses always have to push the envelope. He touches a switch over on Lex's bookshelves. Someone in a dungeon just got killed because of that. Knox tells Lex to leave the science to him. Lex holds up some papers and says that three of his patients are missing. He asks if the doctor knows where these newly cured patients went. Knox blames Lex for making them take away all the memories of their stay at "Hotel 33.1." Lex says he wanted them all to be able to start new lives without being burdened by disturbing memories. Knox adds that those memories would have incriminated Lex. He excuses himself. Lex is confounded! Dramatic music plays.
