Commercials. Quite enjoying the very humorous Star Trek V-Cast ads.
Kent Farm, daytime. What kind of shit farm has no cows or crops on it? This one. I am sad because I wanted to say goodbye to my longtime bovine companions. Oh well. Fare thee well, moo-cows, wherever you are. I hope you're not burger-meat that I've already enjoyed. Inside the barn, Clark is just leaning against the window, staring out at his depleted empire. He's being the opposite of proactive. "Clark? What's the 9-1-1?" a woman asks. It's Black Canary, wearing her non-superhero black wig and civilian clothing. Clark thanks her for meeting him. He starts to say he thought Bart was going to be there, but just then Impulse (our flashy young friend) whooshes into the room, making Clark's hair move. Doesn't feel so good when people do it to you, does it? "Present and accounted for," Bart says in his best surfer dude voice. Clark doesn't smile or say hi. He just asks if Bart has some schematics. Bart zips across the room to lay them on the table. Clark's globe is spinning from the speed burst. [Unnecessary! - Z] Bart says the geothermal facility is courtesy Queen Industries and LuthorCorp. Couldn't they combine those companies into one name already? Gay Industries, perhaps? Or how about Nefarious Bullshit LLC? Bart asks what's with the "black hole." Clark says he was told by Rokk that nothing on the surface of the Earth could defeat Doomsday. So he's going to put him under the Earth. Clark: I don't think Rokk meant for you to take his words literally and then try to find a loophole around it. He's from the future. He's not trying to stump you with a riddle. Jeez.
Clark points to the blueprint, picking some random place in the middle to stick his finger, and says that the facility made a mile of tunnels beneath Earth's crust. Bart figures out that they want to bury their "space invader" there. Clark asks if Black Canary can fire off the detonators in the shaft if Clark lures the beast down there. I almost make a joke about Clark and the word "Shaft," but it's too late to apologize, as the song says. She says she can override it. She asks if they're really going to bury him alive. "Not all," Clark says. He thinks there's still a part of Davis worth saving. I'm still not sure how burying Doomsday, the alien part, underground is any better than sending him to the Phantom Zone. Clark goes to a nearby tool drawer and pulls out the box with the black Kryptonite. He gives it to Bart. Bart opens it up and sticks the Kryptonite out at Clark, who backs away. Clark tells him to be careful with that. Is Bart supposed to be Bart Simpson? Clark explains that it's a very special Kryptonian rock (it was introduced in a very special episode) that will split Davis from his Kryptonian side. Isn't he all Kryptonian? "What if that doesn't work?" someone says. It's Oliver. He's just walked in without Clark hearing him. This plan is already going great!
