Boy, a lot sure does happen in this episode. I'm way past my usual word count here. The Caves of Plot Resolution. Bo flashlights around. He sees the covered-up keyhole and gets mad. He bangs it with his fist. Stupid, stupid rock! Bo yells that Clark wasn't ready and that "you had to keep pushing him!" Maybe if Bo keeps yelling, Terence Stamp will come back. Bo asks what kind of race these people are. Let's hope they're not black, or else the show will marginalize or stereotype them. He says it's no wonder they destroyed themselves. He tosses the octagon to the ground. That's it! Music plays; the key floats and it locks into the wall, caulking be damned. Bo watches in wonder as pretty lights happen. The key opens in the Superman shield shape and shoots fiery goodness at Bo. He screams, from many different angles. Hey, it's Terence Stamp's voice! As he speaks, Bo writhes with pain. If you can get a person you're dealing with in a legal or business issue to writhe in pain while you talk to them, it's usually much more persuasive. I think that's one of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. He recaps: He's Kal-El's true father. What the hell do you want, Bo? Bo insists that he's Clark's dad because he raised Clark. Jor-El basically calls Bo white foster trash and says that Bo can't possibly understand Clark's destiny. Jor-El says that this was Clark's first test, to see if he was ready to begin his journey. As a hustling club baby? Bo says that Clark needs more time. Jor-El says that this phase is almost over, and that it doesn't matter if Clark comes home. Jor-El says that if Bo wants Clark home, he'll have to go get Clark himself. Shouldn't there be a mediator or a custody judge involved here? Bo says that Clark is too powerful. Jor-El asks if Bo will do anything to get him back. Bo says that he will. Holy crap, Bo is totally getting an indecent proposal! I didn't know Krypton had a society based on the casting couch. More Bo screaming. He did say "anything."
Metropolis at night. Clark jumps down from a ceiling panel into an office hallway. He walks right into Papa Luthor's office. He reaches the safe. Clark knocks off the safe locks and pulls the door aside. He walks in and sees a tiny, rectangular metal box on a shelf. Maybe it's the World's Greatest Fig Newtons. Clark grabs the box and starts to leave. But wait! What's this? It's Bo! How the hell did he know where to find Clark? Clark smiles and calls Bo by his full name. He asks if it isn't past Bo's bedtime. Go to bed, old man! Bo says he knew where to find Clark through Jor-El. How did Jor-El know? Clark says it's cute that his two dads are working together now, but that he's not going to listen to either of them. Bo stops Clark with a hand to the chest and demands that Clark go home with him. Clark puts his own hand on Bo's chest and pushes him hard against the opposite wall. Bo flies and crashes, making an ass indentation on the wall. Clark tells Bo he should have stayed home. Bo looks up at Clark. He's not hurt. Oh, smack! Bo says that Clark's coming home with him, now. He superspeeds at Clark, and they both go crashing out through a window into the night air. CGI falling! Now was that really the best approach, Bo? I'm just amazed that Bo has superpowers. Now I know the future of mankind: a planet where cows evolved from men! The two are falling like they're in a Salman Rushdie novel, and then we get the black screen: To Be Continued. Damn!
