Clark walks into a house. Is it his house? No? Did he just let the school burn down? Where the fuck is the transition here? Clark walks, unannounced, into Chloe's house and finds her and Tool Boy swapping spit. "What are you doing here?" Clark asks. It's her fucking house. Jeez! The logic in this episode is excruciating. Clark tells Chloe that Tool Boy tried to kill him and Pete. He also guesses that the kid killed the teacher. Chloe asks when the deadly encounter occurred. Clark says it was twenty minutes ago. Chloe says that's impossible; Tool Boy has been there for three hours. It's a stumper! And they just left the dead body in the fire? And didn't call the police? And there was no murder investigation? Man alive! This sucks!
Talon. They're recycling Talon marquees again. This one is the one about open mike night and getting out of the shower and into The Talon. What if they had showers at The Talon? Lana is crunching some numbers. Two of them, I think. Clark walks in and asks if Lana's seen Chloe. Lana gets up immediately and says she's at the sheriff's station making her statement. Ah, justice. Clark asks why Lana's mad at him, but it didn't sound like Lana was mad at all. It sounded like she was reading words from a script while following penciled-in blocking notes. Lana says she can't believe Clark accused Tool Boy of killing the shop teacher. Clark says that Tool Boy is lying to everyone. Unlike himself. "A boy with secrets. I'm surprised you guys aren't fast friends," Lana says. Clark tells her not to turn it around on him, adding that Chloe is Tool Boy's alibi. Lana says that they were just finishing up an interview. Clark says that they were making out. Lana reveals that Tool Boy told her Chloe had a crush on him. Lana says that if she didn't know Clark better, she'd think he was jealous. Clark says "You gotta ask yourself" (Lex rubbed him well) why someone would make the two people they care about lie. Clark walks out. Lana "acts" a bit on her own.
