As the elevator doors shut, a voice next to Clark asks, "She's a handful, isn't she?" He turns to face an older version of himself, hair slicked back and wearing a business suit and coat. Older Clark is also wearing glasses and looks strangely younger than the present-day Clark. The Clark of today gives the Clark of tomorrow a hot, open-mouthed ogling. He needs the commercial break to drink in this vision of loveliness.
After the commercials, he's still ogling himself. "You're right on time," Older Clark says. His head looks oddly small with his hair slicked back. It's like a wee acorn perched atop a mighty oak. Our Clark is surprised that his older self was expecting him. "Time travel," Older Clark says. "Think it through." The gears turn painfully in our Clark's brain: "Because you were me when you went through this and I'm...?" Smoke puffs out of Clark's ears as things finally fall into place for him. Older Clark gives him a verbal biscuit: "Well done, my man." Our Clark is a bit annoyed at how uptight and nerdy his future self is, but his future self has no time for these trifling things. He tells Clark to get to the roof while he goes to take care of a bad nuclear reactor outside of town. "I can't be two places at once," he says. You did it just a couple of episodes ago! Clark wonders why his older self didn't try to stop any of this, since he knew it was coming. Older Clark says his younger self has to experience this in order to become his future self. Our Clark doesn't find that a particularly thrilling prospect. Older Clark opens the elevator doors, barks at Clark to get to the roof, and then super-zips away. I think you can see some red and blue in his blur, hinting at the Superman suit emerging from his business garb.
