Barn. Martha stares at her husband's old workbench, his gloves still lying inside an open toolbox. She looks just lovely in her understated suit with the bit of silver coming into her hair. Clark, standing behind her, says, "I think about him every day." She smiles and tells him about how she and Jonathan had their first date in the barn. They were supposed to go on a picnic but his truck broke down. Plus, he didn't want to be too far from his beloved cows. "I'm glad you made it home," Clark tells her. She plays it off at first like it's no big deal, but then she sighs and admits how hard it is for her to come back. It's a good thing the Senate in the Smallville world doesn't require its members to campaign or raise money back in their hometowns. When her voice breaks, Clark is there to hug her. She has to stand on tiptoe to put her arms around his neck. "About Perry," she says, pulling away. "I hope you don't mind. I bumped into him at a committee hearing a few months ago." She giggles almost girlishly. Clark takes a moment to get used to the idea, then assures her it's okay. "As long as he doesn't start looking for a story," Clark says. He's got enough to worry about with all the alien stuff. Mama tells her boy about how proud she is that he's trying to help his people. When he tells her he's been living two lives lately, she tells him how glad she is that he's got Lois in one of those lives. "I sleep better knowing you have someone special in your life," she says. Clark just smiles.
