Football field. Score is 31-28 in favor of the visiting team with just seven seconds left. It's fourth down. Lana, Chloe, and Lois sit in the stands. Lex sits a few rows down, by himself. In the huddle, Clark tells a teammate to go to the endzone. "Can you throw that far?" a guy asks. "Can you run that fast?" Clark responds. "Hell yeah." The play is called. It's a Hail Mary. Everybody in the crowd stands. Bo and MamaKent are there too. Clark hikes the ball. The clock winds down. Clark throws a long pass. Every football cliché is employed. The chimes, the slow-motion the seconds ticking down, the coach on the sidelines. The ball sails, wobbly in the air. The receiver jumps and catches the ball. He might be in the endzone, but it's tough to tell because there are no lines anywhere near him. Everybody stands and cheers. Yay. Even Lex looks a bit happy. Bo gives Clark a proud look .Clark is lifted up by his teammates. Victory!
Chloe, wearing a cute top that features school colors that do suit her recounts the winning play as she walks on the field with Clark. She says he's gonna be like "some superhero around here." Chloe says she might have to do an article on him. You mean The Torch didn't think the school shooting or anything about the team was worth writing before? Clark asks if she's back on the newspaper. She says she is. She goes direct. She says she's sorry about making things awkward. Clark says she made a great cheerleader. She asks not to talk about that again. Chloe stands in front of Clark in her cute hair and in the magic hour daylight and she just looks beautiful. She says that she could blame the "pom pom juice," but that she obviously still has feelings for Clark. "Chloe," Clark says, "I wish I felt the same way. But I don't." Chloe nods. "At least not right now," Clark says. Chloe moves her eyes around and says she accepts it. She wants to keep their friendship, even though Clark's gonna be Big Man on Campus. She chuckles. Clark says he's hoping his new editor will keep him in line. He says he's going to make time for The Torch. Chloe: "Wow. Superhero and journalist. What are the odds?" Clark leans over and kisses Chloe on the cheek. WHY!? Dude! You don't do that! "Thanks," Chloe says, tearing up. "I'll see you tomorrow." She shoos away, probably bawling her eyes out. Oh, man. This is painful.
Lois walks right over and walks with Clark instead of consoling her cousin. "If you break your heart, I'll come back and I'll break your legs," she advises. Well, get the pipe because I think Clark just did it again. Lois says the dean of her college got a call from a benefactor with the initials "L.L." On this show? Could be anybody. She says, "They did the white man power dance and Shazam!" She's a freshman. Clark says that's great. Lois knows Clark had something to do with it. Clark says the important thing is that she's leaving. Because that's what she wanted. Lois teases him for not being broken up about it. She says the town was weird, and that she's looking forward to the normalcy of the big city. She says she'll visit. "Is that a promise or a threat?" Clark asks. Lois slugs him on the shoulder as they both smile. "See ya around...Smallville," she says and walks off the field, leaving Clark alone. Now's your chance, Clark! Take a basketball and dunk it on the goalpost!
