Kent farm. Clark is upstairs in the loft, still suffering from menstrual pains. He hears someone coming up and thinks it's Chloe. Instead, it's Eminem from 8 Mile. Oh, wait, that's Jason wearing a dark hoodie. I can never tell with these blond kids. Jason says they need to talk. Clark tells him that he thinks there's something in that drink cooler. Jason ignores that and tells Clark he should stay away from Jason's girlfriend. Clark is like, "Whu?" and gets sucker-punched in the gut. Oof! Then he gets Captain Kirked in the back and falls on some canisters. Jason punched Clark repeatedly about the face. Kerpow! Clark is bleeding. He gets punched again and falls through some rails to a lower level. Clark lies on the ground, moaning. He's not so super when he's got food poisoning, is he? Jason comes downstairs to finish Clark off. He's stopped by Sexy Goddamn Man About Town Lex Luthor, who throws Jason over to a nearby post. Jason falls, gets up, and runs away like a turkey. Way to go, coach. Lex comes over to nurse this fallen farmboy. "Lex," Clark says. Lex gets all up over Clark and asks if he's all right and who that guy was. Clark, for no real reason, doesn't answer. We go to commercials.
Those "Feel Good Fashion" commercials got old really fast.
Kent farm at night. It's when the tractors sleep. In the barn, Lex is asking Clark whether he's sure he doesn't want to call the police or report a hate crime or something. Clark's nose is dripping. It hits the floor as green liquid. Ew, a Gatorade commercial. Clark wipes his nose. Clark opens his shirt, pointing his nipple Due Lex. The wounds on his chest heal, though why he'd want Lex to notice that, I'm not sure. As Lex turns around, Clark wipes his nose and tries to play it off. But his facial wounds have healed, too. Lex notices. Clark says that all of a sudden he's feeling a lot better. Lex suggests that Clark see a doctor anyway. Lex doesn't press the issue. He says he was there in the first place to give Clark something. Well, three somethings if you count balls. Lex throws Clark a package in a snazzy LuthorCorp folder. Lex says it's every file he ever had on Clark. Clark asks how he knows there's not another copy floating around. Lex says, "You don't. But it's the truth." Clark asks why Lex lied to him if this friendship was so important. Hey Clark? Your pants have been on fire for years. I think you must wear flame-retardant long johns. Lex says he doesn't know. He says there's a darkness inside him that he can't control. Lex thinks that's why all his relationships end badly. Clark says we all have a dark side. Like this one guy Moon I know? Totally has a dark side. Lex says his is different. He can feel his creeping over the corners. Creeeepy! Lex says that friendship helps keep it at bay and reminds him that there are good people in the world. Lex says he doesn't want to give up on that. He bids Clark good night. No kiss, though.
