Opening credits. Commercials. Beauty and the Geek. Wow, what a total coincidence this show was mentioned earlier!
Kent Farm. Clark is on his knees, trying to repair some kind of motor. Ah, for the days when Clark being on his knees in the barn really meant something. We hear a bark, and our old pal Shelby appears. Hey, Shelby! We thought you might have gotten euthanized when MamaKent moved to D.C. or something. It's good to see you alive. Clark says hi to his "buddy" and asks if Shelby got kicked out of the house by Kara. Clark tells Shelby they can hang out in the barn. Aw. Lana's face suddenly appears, walking into the barn, bathed in warm, glowing sunlight, accompanied by beauteous music.
Let us pray. O Lords. In the names of Al and Miles, bless this scene that it be Lanariffic. Bless our (almost) virgin, Lana Lang (strike that "Luthor" from the holy scrit), that she may be dewy fresh; that her creamy skin be lit just so from that perfect angle which Al and Miles hath decreed. May it please Al and Miles, let the sunshine cast a warmth upon our Lana so inviting that it wipes our memories of everything foul that hides behind her preternatural smile. We ask that you deliver us from Chloe and that you praise Lana above all others, for she does bless us all with her divine, all-encompassing, supreme perfection. Amen.
Lana watches Clark as the pretty music continues to play. She wears jeans and a white baby-doll top. Clark is really cranking that tractor engine. Lana walks slowly toward him. I totally expect Kara to whoosh into the room, totally naked. Shelby barks at Lana. Clark says, "Uh-oh, looks like she found us." He asks Kara to hand him the Phillips-Head screwdriver. Would an alien really know what one of those looks like? Lana puts a hand on Clark's shoulder. Clark thinks suddenly, "No, we're cousins, we can't, no matter how badly we want to!" He turns and sees Lana. He drops his tool. This is the part where he's supposed to scream, "Lana!? What the FUCK!?" She just stares at him. Clark tilts his head, indicating that he's a little skeptical that this is actually happening. I mean, this is Smallville. Shit be freaky in this town; Clark has reason for doubt. Lana puts a hand on his cheek. Clark, still doubting his own eyes, leans forward and...hugs her? Really? No kiss? Maybe he thinks she might still be dead and that she's got grave breath. Clark closes his eyes and smiles in relief as they keep hugging in the barn.
