Outside on the pond-bridge. Pretty fall colors in the trees. Wait, so last week's episode took place in winter, but now it's fall again? Lana comments on how pretty the area looks. Crusty Old Man tells her that most people stay at home and watch TV. Especially on Tuesday nights. Crusty Old Man asks Lana if she'll go back to his room and get him a scarf because he's afraid he'll catch a chill. How do you catch a chill? Is that like getting the heat sucked out of you by a kryptonite monster who wants to stay warm? Lana says, "Sure!" in her bright voice, and takes off, leaving Crusty Old Man to fish some cigarettes and a lighter from his robe pockets. Naughty Crusty Man. As he tries to light, he drops his Zippo and then has to lean over to retrieve it from the ground.
Quick cut to Cassandra and Clark. He's supposed to be reading, but nothing's been said, and Cassandra starts coughing roughly. She asks for a glass of water. She stands to drink, and as she reaches for the glass, it falls between them.
Cut from the falling glass to Crusty Old Man reaching down for the lighter.
Back to the falling glass.
Crusty Old Man leans to the side and tips over his wheelchair. It falls into the pond with him, and we see the water electrified by the wheelchair's supposed motor. There's lots of blue electricity as Crusty Old Man (now Crispy Old Man) lies, face down, on the surface of the water. Small explosion.
Cut to Cassandra, looking scared.
Cut back to the bloated face of Crusty Old Man, as we look up from the bottom of the pond. His face morphs to that of a younger man. Cut to an overhead shot panning down quickly to show Young Crusty Man getting up from the water. He rises, with thick moppy hair, and looks around. He starts to laugh-cackle. He splashes some water with his hand and laughs some more. His clothes fit him perfectly, even though he looks about sixty pounds lighter than the more rotund older man he was just seconds before. The clothes must have shrunk in the water. We pan down the length of the pond to a rock with kryptonite embedded in it right on the top of the water.
