A Depeche Mode song starts to play, and that's not bad news at all. In the barn at night, Clark goes up the stairs to the loft. His super-hearing didn't pick up that Lana is up there, waiting for him at the telescope. Ha. You get it? She's playing with his telescope because he...he can't...ah ha hah. This is so goddamned funny. Tell me you're with me here, people. Lana says that she wasn't going to leave things the way they were. Clark says she's right: "I was pulling away." Clark bullshits that he's wanted her for so long that he's afraid he'll just screw it up. Lana says she'd never let him go that easily. Damn. Lana suggests that they slow down and try to get back to where they were. That must be in the show bible somewhere: "Slow things down. Try to get back to where things were." For everything. Clark summarizes his behavior: "I freak out. I blame everything on you and you forgive me." Lana suggests that maybe it's not all Clark's fault. She says she did run off to Met U. and has been too caught up in her homework. She tells Clark that she's been studying the meteor showers. She tried to leave it in the past, but the meteors changed her life, as did the second shower. "There's no way they are random," she says. Lana says that she's been looking at satellite imagery and noticed that something in the first meteor shower didn't crash like the other meteors did. "It kind of lands," she says. She asks Clark what he thinks about the ship having landed, and whomever was inside having lived among them all these years. "I bet he's an asshole," Clark thinks, before remembering who was in it. But he's right.
The song cranks up as we return to the back of The Talon, where MamaKent is hanging out. A town car pulls up. "Thank you for coming," MamaKent tells Papa Luthor as she gets into the back seat with him. "I'm always here for you, Martha," he says as they drive off together. Evil!
