Bo answers the phone in the hall. A computerized-sounding voice tells him it's his last chance to drop out of the campaign. This is what you get when you hook up your house phone to dudes playing on Xbox Live. "I told you not to call here again," Bo says. And no, he doesn't want the Sports Illustrated football phone. Bo looks worried. He opens a very tiny and ornate pill box and takes one of the red pills out. It looks like a Mike & Ike candy.
At the Central Kansas A&M campus, Lois is putting campaign posters up on a post. Is that really the best use of her time as campaign manager? The post she's trying to staple onto is plastered with a bunch of Kent posters that have been attached over a bunch of Lex posters. Isn't that against campus rules? LexFan walks up and tears one of Lois's posters down. Lois asks what she's doing. LexFan explains, while her fey thugs watch, that campaign posters can be no bigger than 20 x 24. Lois tells the girl that she's taking the "Campus Gestapo" thing way too seriously. Yeah, compare people to Nazis. That's how we know Lois is sane and rational. The girl tells Lois that the state's future depends on it. "How do you know my name?" Lois asks. The girl quotes Lex saying, "Always know your enemy." I'm not sure it was Lex who came up with that one, but whatever. Lois, looking five years older than she did even last season, says that Lex is treating the election like a hostile takeover, and that's what he'll do to do the state. Woohoo! We're totally annexing Missouri! Lois takes pleasure in telling LexFan that Bo Duke is neck-and-neck with LexFan's "fascist environmental annihilator." LexFan doesn't much like that. She walks off in a huff. Lois makes a weird face. As she walks off with her crew, LexFan grouses that they need to set the bar higher. The one that Lex set. The bar, that is. To a higher bar setting. Maybe, like 7. "Defeat is not an option," she says. This chick has no friends.
Metropolis at night. Lana is poring over space porn. Lots of satellite photos and data. Ooh, spread for me, galaxy. Spread! Man, that's good big bang. She takes notes, hunched over a desk lamp. We get a shot of her dorm bed. It looks awfully lonely. There's a knock. Lana goes to answer; it's Clark. They kiss. Clark immediately goes and lies down on Lana's bed. Now, why didn't I ever think of that in college? Lana guesses that Clark's had a long day of campaigning. He says it's been a long day of Lois. Dude, that last scene was more Lois than I'd want in a day. Lana suggests that instead of making a fool of herself at the ice rink, they could stay in tonight. It doesn't occur to Clark that his last date at an ice rink was with his dead wife?
