Kent kitchen. MamaKent takes two tins of muffins out of the oven. Clark runs into the pan and holds onto it -- without getting burned, of course. He sets it on the table. MamaKent says it's good to have him back. Clark says it's better than eating jail food. Just then, Bo walks in and says he just got off the phone with the police. He grabs for a muffin, but it's hot and he has to drop it. This episode has lots of nice little smart moments like that -- much more so than last week's IQ-dropper. Bo says that the arson charges have been dropped, and that they've probably (yeah, right) seen the last of Desiree Atkins. Clark asks about his daring jail escape. Because of his age and the fact that he saved Lex, they're going to drop the charges. Ah yes. Smallville due process. "We're very lucky this time," Bo says. MamaKent asks whether Lex said anything about what happened. Bo says that he and Lex just want to put it behind them. No mention made of Bo getting his tonsils on with Pheromona. Bo asks MamaKent out to dinner. He'll even spring for an onion Awesome Blossom.
The Barnness of Epiloguitude. Clark is reading Fahrenheit 451 on a hammock. Lex comes up. Ooh, it just got hotter. Clark asks Lex how he's feeling. "Like I'm waking up from a bad dream," Lex says. Lex fills in the plot blanks. He's getting an annulment. He'll be more careful in the future, blah blah blah shattered dreamcakes. Lex says he won't make the same mistake again. Clark tells Lex that he doesn't think having passion is a bad thing. Right now. In the barn. Alone. Lex says that passion for life, work, and friends is great. But love? As the French say, "It is a shit mine upon which the sneaker of life must inevitably step." Lex says he should take a page out of Clark's book. Superfudge? Lex notes that Clark doesn't go for it with Lana, even though Jocko is gone. Clark says that he really wants to. Clark says that Lana needs to work out her feelings. And finish up those acting lessons, which are finally starting to pay dividends. "I can wait," Clark says. Lex tells Clark not to wait too long. He pats him on the shoulder on his way out. Clark hates to see Lex leave, but he loves to watch Lex go.
