Kent Farm. The cows say, "Go away. We're making milk." In the barn, Clark is looking at a big printout of a city map and a crater. "Oakland, California," he says. Chloe is there, telling him that authorities blamed the crater on a shooting star. A shooting star? Chloe says that was just wishful thinking. "Sorry," she says. Yes, that line was worthy of an apology. Chloe says that it was six weeks ago, around the time Clark got out of the Phantom Zone. Chloe says the person who landed in the crater has already killed someone, and adds that two boys went missing; all the authorities found were human ashes and a basketball. Clark says that it sounds like heat vision. When did he turn someone into ashes? Chloe says that it's not; whatever did this created a mound of radiation. She says that the next day, a nuclear facility twenty miles away was hit. Hit? Clark asks why a "Zoner" would go there. Chloe replies that five researchers were given a "premature cremation" before the radioactive material they were working on was sucked dry. That sucks! Dry! Clark says that it's like the Zoner was feeding on it, and adds that they need to check all the nuclear facilities in the area. "Hello. Um, have you met me?" Chloe asks, and it's very cute. She busts out with her data. She says half a dozen places have been hit, the most recent just outside of Metropolis. She uses the word "continent," but they've all happened in a line across the southwest U.S. heading toward Kansas. Clark notices that it's a straight line. What does he know about straight? Chloe says it's headed directly for Clark. She didn't figure that one out before showing it to him? Chloe rushes out, saying she'll make a list of possible sites within a hundred miles. She says that she'll call Clark. Clark studies the map. I bet he's got it upside-down. He hears rustling outside the barn. He walks toward an open door. A woman approaches. For one horrifying moment, I think that it's Lana. Before we can see her face, Clark says, "Raya!" It is indeed her, looking like she got a makeover and some nice tailored clothes. "Hello, Kal-El," she says. Clark is stunned into silence, which works out all right because the scene is over.
Clark and Raya go walking outside where it's pretty. Clark tells Raya that he was afraid he'd never see her again. He apologizes for leaving her behind in the Phantom Zone to get all knifed up. She says he had no choice and adds that if it weren't for Clark, she'd have never escaped. "I would have never seen all this," she's says, "it's more beautiful than the world your father described." Wow, sucks that she'll only ever see Kansas. Clark asks how Raya found him. Raya says that Clark's father told her about the family he'd chosen for Clark and about Smallville. Jarnelle chose his family? Before Clark was sent? I thought he just shipped the kid off and hoped for the best. Raya says it must have been hard for Clark to grow up here alone. Clark says that he had his parents and friends, but she comes back and says that nobody could have understood him. Clark ponders growing up with such a secret. She says it also must have been a huge rush to race trains and know that nothing could hurt him. Clark says he used to pretend not to notice that Bo watched him sometimes, wanting to know what that felt like. "But he never could," Raya says. Clark doesn't bother to correct her, even though Bo did have those powers at one point. Maybe the show just forgot. Clark says that no matter how he thinks he fits in, he's reminded that he's not normal. Raya says that Clark's not alone. "I'm here," she says. But for how long?
