Oh, man. Boobs McChesty alert. She's standing in front of a portrait of sunflowers (future Evil Lex reference!), and it's hard to tell which one is more animated. She's wearing a leopard-skin jacket that she must have stolen from some Metropolis pimp, and a necklace that probably served as his medallion. Young Chris Isaak comes up to her from behind (is there any other way?), and gives her a drink. He says he's surprised to find her in Smallville. God, I hope it's just for one more episode. She says, "It grows on you." Like a fungus? Among us? Just then, Lex -- wearing lots of black -- shows up and tells Boobs McChesty not to encourage YCI. Then he snarks that Smallville needs more pesticides in its water. Can we just stick it in Boobs's drink? YCI smarms that Lex is just jealous that somebody is sharing his sandbox. "Only when they're polluting it," Lex says. Wait. Is that a kitty litter joke? I can never tell. Young Chris Isaak moves to shake Lex's hand, but Lex deftly swings around and grabs a glass of wine from a tray instead. John Madden: "You see, he juked to the right, finding an opening, and he just ran with it. Isaak had nowhere else to go. Now that's penetration!" Some back and forth about YCI's offices. YCI offers Lex a button. Lex bitches that soon the town won't be inhabitable. YCI says he follows the rules. Lex says he has an interest in Smallville because he lives there. I never thought I'd say this, but this Lex scene is kinda boring. YCI mentions that he had spoken to Lionel Luthor about Lex's "exile." In this neverending exchange, YCI reveals that he's found the perfect place for his new plant: The Kent Farm. Lex tells YCI that it's going to be impossible to get the Kents to sell their farm. "Trust me, Bob. You're not that charming," Lex says, and throws back the button. Got to admit, Lex does know from charming.
