The Barnness of Epilogueitude. Clark is looking through his telescope. This time, it's aimed up at the sky. Hey, Clark. I can see Uranus. Ha! I love that joke. Bo enters the room. "Hey, Clark! I can see Ur-- oh, did Omar already use that one? My bad." Bo says he hasn't seen Clark use the telescope in a while. He thought Clark might have outgrown it. Clark starts to talk, but Bo shuts him up: he says that everyone discovers some day that their parents aren't always going to be around and he doesn't want Clark sacrificing his happiness for Bo. Clark says it's not a sacrifice; it's a choice. Dammit, Bo, Clark's getting an abortion whether you like it or not! Bo says it's a fine line. Clark whines that Bo's never going to understand it. Oh, but he does. Clark asks Bo just to trust him on this. Bo reveals that he was in the same boat as Clark. He had a full ride at Met U waiting when he graduated. But he was needed on the farm, and he stayed. Clark says that's a big footnote to leave out: "Why didn't you tell me?" Bo says he didn't want it to weigh Clark down. Bo says that, as much as he loved his dad, part of him still resents being needed that much. Bo's pretty damned in touch with his feelings here. Bo says, "I don't want you to feel that. That's not the kind of father I ever wanted to be." It's quite sweet, really. Bo walks past Clark. Clark stops him: "Dad. This isn't about the kind of father you are. It's about the kind of son I want to be." Yeah, we give the show a lot of shit, but this is a genuinely well-done scene. Bo smiles heartily and they hug, tightly. Aww.
