More commercials = less recapping. I won't complain. Little Man is out on DVD! The long, cold wait is over!
Kent Farm, daytime. Clark rushes down the stairs, putting on one of about thirty blue T-shirts he owns. As he does, we see a tiny flash of belly. Oh, don't be teasing us like that, farmboy. Give us some nipple. Raya is waiting downstairs, wearing the Martha Stewart Phantom Zone line of casual business wear. Clark says he knows Jarnelle told her where he was sending Clark, but he wonders how Baern Bow Wow knew where to look. She says that in the Phantom Zone, the story of Clark's journey from Krypton is a well-known myth. She says it's a story of hope for some and revenge for others. It's like The Odyssey, but gayer. Clark says that for someone who's been after him for twenty years, the visit was short-lived. So Clark is twenty-years-old right now? Raya says she thinks Bow Wow didn't expect to fight two Kryptonians. She says he was weakening and that his race feeds on radioactive energy. Raya, her eyes never shifting, says that Baern killed hundreds before going to Krypton, but that Jarnelle was able to banish him to the Phantom Zone. Clark wonders whether the monster is looking for more energy. Raya says that Baern can sense power. Only one thing can stop him. "Your father's crystal," she says. It's lying on a red kerchief on the table, a Superman crest in blue glass. It looks like something you'd buy at the airport at the very last minute for someone you're not that thrilled to be visiting.
Daily Planet. Nighttime. Chloe walks into a dark office where Jimmy is working. He's printing something out. Chloe says that she's sent him ten text messages. Jimmy, not looking away from his computer screen, says that he must have missed them. Chloe apologizes for blowing off Jimmy's conspiracy theory, but she wanted Jimmy to know what a shark Lex can be. Jimmy says that she's right. "So you're dropping it?" she asks. Jimmy says she was right about him needing proof. Jimmy says he used the idea of publicity for Lex's favorite charity to get into Lex's place and have a look around. Chloe says that he must have been persuasive, since Lex doesn't usually take interviews. Jimmy looks shifty. He tells her he may have dropped her name. Chloe looks disappointed, but Jimmy says that it was so worth it. He shows her a digital image on screen of the schematic from Lex's desk. "Oh, my God," Chloe says. Is that her new catchphrase? Jimmy notes the symbols. He says they're hieroglyphics. "Do you know what this means, Chloe?" he asks, dead serious. "Lex is working with the Egyptians!" Wonk, wonk, wooooonk. The whimsical music of goofiness plays as Chloe tries to figure out a way to be kind. "You know...I think you're right," she tells Jimmy. She tells him to make a bunch of copies of the schematic and that she'll call the embassy. "Now that is my girl," says the man-boy-child. Chloe walks out, wondering how she has come to find herself dating such a goofball.
