Metropolis General Hospital, our home away from home! Lois and Clark are in an injured hostage's room, where Lois is trying to badger this poor woman into giving a statement. The former hostage says nothing. Clark uses his new ESP to hear the woman worrying in accented English about being sent away. Clark assures her they're not with the INS. Lois gives him a WTF face until the woman starts talking about the man she saw. Some time later, they're talking to another hostage. This one's got sort of a Steve Buscemi thing going on, except with straighter teeth. He gives conflicting information about the bomber and pointlessly refers to Clark as Lois's "boyfriend." His thoughts betray him: turns out he's just milking the experience for excitement. Clark lectures him about how lying to them might be OK, but lying to the police will land him in jail. "Is that understood?" he asks sternly. Buscemi Lite admits he didn't see anything. Lois looks at Clark like her thong just combusted.
Later at the nurse's station, Clark's new ability lets him overhear a nurse who's just given him a patient's chart. She thinks Clark is cute, but worries about getting fired for helping him. Lois shows up to give Clark a donut to replace the poop-tainted one he gave her earlier. They walk together through the hospital and talk about how the "Mr. Murphy", the guy with the bomb, just got out of surgery but is still unconscious. Clark calls him "the mystery man's puppet," so it sounds like he's finally realized this guy is not to blame. Also, did this guy need surgery as a result of Clark hitting him? Wouldn't it be nice if they didn't leave this kind of thing so vague? Because it makes Clark look kind of bad for flirting with Lois while some innocent guy he mangled lies unconscious in a hospital bed. Anyway, Clark and Lois have a long, awkward scene where Clark asks her out to dinner after her thoughts say she's got no plans besides eating ice cream and watching Lifetime. There's lots of pausing and staring back and forth. It's a date, but not a date. There will be no dinner, but there will be a monster truck rally that Lois has been wanting to go to, according to her inner dialogue. Lois agrees to meet him there, but they'll be taking separate cars to avoid "drama." Good luck with that. It's already too late to avoid creepiness, which is what Clark using her thoughts to woo her really is.
