High school entrance. Shouldn't people be leaving the school instead of rushing in? Clark and Lois enter a darkroom. Clark is looking for PhotoJerkalist. He says that this room is like his second home. Lois says this whole Ten Little Indians thing is starting to give her the creeps. Lois sees some photos hung up and admires how many popular people the guy photographed. Clark says that PhotoJerkalist knows everyone. Lois finds a not-at-all-incriminating display in plain view showing cut-outs of all the kidnapped seniors with big Xs showing the ones who are gone. Lazy, lazy, lazy. I'm so glad that we now have the technology where a writer can literally punch numbers on a telephone and send in his script that way. Lois calls it "a little Norman Bates," because her cultural references can't date beyond the 1960s. Lois asks if they might be...she trails off, implying death. Clark says no, for no really good reason, except he somehow thinks they're being collected. Clark finds some weird map-looking transparencies and uses it with an overhead projector. "Thanks, Clark," Lois says, annoyed, when he shines the light in her face. Clark overlays the transparency on the clipped-out photos on the wall and it looks as if it's some sort of map. Lois says it's like paper dolls. Clark says the blueprint is of the school. He guesses that PhotoJerkalist rebuilt part of the school somewhere. I love how these things are so easy to figure out on this show. Part of the blueprint reads, "Nash Construction. Call on us for all your plot point questions." A clue!
God, this episode is exhausting. I wonder how the actors got through it. Cut to the warehouse. Inside, Chloe is typing on her computer keyboard, sans internet access. There's a knock at the door. It's PhotoJerkalist. Chloe gushes to him that they have tons of material for the next day's issue of The Torch. PhotoJerkalist was happy to provide lots of photos for her to work with. He says he had no idea Chloe and Haley were such good friends. "Why?" Chloe says, feigning disappointment. "What did she tell you?" He says it was nothing he didn't suspect. Chloe continues to try charming him by acting impressed that he built a replica of the school for them. PhotoJerkalist mopily says that after he got those rejection letters, he realized that all his work in high school didn't matter on the outside. Chloe gets very close and asks, smiling, how he did it. He did it by threatening his construction-company dad that he'd make his "stepmonster" into his own personal mannequin. Maybe she would have been On The Move! He laughs at the memory of terrorizing his dad. Then he's suddenly struck in the back of the head with a cabinet drawer. The wielder of the drawer? Lana Lang. Chloe reaches into the passed-out dude's pockets and gets his keys. "Let's go," she tells Lana.
