Daily Planet, daytime. Chloe has dug up some information for Clark that she found in Shardy's very private CPS files. Lots of references to broken glass, she says. She introduces the information by saying, "I hate to break it to you," which is kinda cute. The little AOL yellow guy runs across my screen and says, "Join Lex's hunt for Dr. Fine. Go to aol.com/Smallville." There are three short blog entries and a video when I last looked at it. Impressive, giant AOL Time Warner conglomerate. A ten-year-old with a MySpace page posts more than that in an afternoon. Chloe says that the girl is disaster-prone. Clark says that doesn't make her a killer. He says that if his parents hadn't found him in the field, he could have been in the foster care system, accused of crimes he didn't commit. Chloe says that one of Clark's powers is his faith in people, but she thinks the jury is in: the little girl is guilty. Chloe shows Clark a newspaper article: it wasn't just a car accident, it was a freak car accident. She had a head-on collision with a bunch of freaks! Chloe says that witnesses claimed the front windshield shattered before the crash. Clark asks whether Chloe thinks the girl killed her own mother. Chloe reminds Clark that the girl has a hard time controlling her powers. Clark glares at the air. Stupid air!
Kent farm. Lois has taken Shardy outside, far away from glass surfaces. Lois claims that some of her best times in life were out in the boonies...far away from breakables. Some of my best times in life were spent away from Lois. Shardy asks where Shelby went. Lois says that she's allergic, and that the dog isn't fond of her either. Lois, who is setting them up for a picnic, says that they can do whatever Shardy wants. Shardy suddenly runs off, looking for Shelby. Scary music plays. Lois gives chase. In the barn, Lois tells Shardy she can play with the dog when Clark gets back. Lois suddenly notices that all the glass jars in the barn are suddenly shaking. Lois tries to calm the girl down, and says that they should get out of there before one of them gets hurt. Perfect timing, because the CPS guy just showed up. "What do you mean 'gets hurt'?" he asks. Lois asks who he is. He's Frank Colbert, dammit! He asks what's going on. Lois tells the guy that she knows this sounds crazy, but that she's trying to keep the girl as far away from glass as possible. The guy looks surprised, so he obviously hasn't read Shardy's file. He asks Shardy to go get in his car. She shakes her head. Lois tells the guy, "No, no, not the car!" Lois tells Frank Colbert that the girl can break glass just by looking at it. Yeah, that's nice, but Frank Colbert's going to take her back to the shelter. More scary music plays, but nothing happens.
