Torch. Clark is sitting at Chloe's computer as she walks in, carrying some folders including a pink three-ring binder that must belong to Lana. Chloe asks Clark if he remembers the green "Freak" rock they found with Pasty Boy's body. She gives Clark a photo of a local mechanic who was gunned down two weeks before and had a rock next to his body, too. This is a violent-ass town. How do people still want to live there? They should all just move to Lawrence. Chloe says that when she had her VW Bug in the shop, she could swear the mechanic reached for a wrench three feet under her car. So he was a Plastic Man Mutant. I would have rather seen that than someone with gills. Chloe says she started a file on the mechanic, but the guy never went psycho like the swimming stalker did. Clark concludes that "Lana's hero" isn't trying to save people; he's just hunting mutants. It's the most dangerous mutant game. Chloe says it's Smallville's own version of a hate crime. "But why?" Chloe asks. "Revenge," Clark says in an overly-serious actorly way that should be accompanied by his turning around of a swivel chair, to the sound of an organ chord. It turns out there is a swivel, though -- Clark turns around the gorgeous Alienware flat-panel monitor to show her a news story about the father of Van McNulty (the McNulty that is not actually transported in a van), who, it turns out was murdered by Shapeshifta' Girl. Daddy McNulty was the marine recruiter she killed off-camera that we only heard about. Chloe says that the son decided to "go Terminator on the rest." Which of the three movies? Because if the Apocalypse is coming on this show, I want to know about it.
