Clark tells Chloe his brilliant plan. "I'm going public. On my terms." Chloe says it's fine that Clark buried himself in patrol duty after Lana (who?) left. "But to come out waving the flag? I mean, that's huge." Clark says that Chloe convinced him that Jimmy's photo of the Red-blue Blur symbolizes hope. Chloe counters that he didn't have an "address or a family or a face" when he was just a blur. Is he ready for this? Clark says he doesn't have a choice, which, yes, he does. He says this way he can at least control the story and Chloe snarks that the paparazzi is great at respecting people's privacy. She again tries to say they can stop Linda, but he says it's different this time. "Even if I agree to be Linda Lake's puppet, eventually she will stab me in the back and expose me." Plus she'll make him sit on her lap and sing while she drinks a glass of water. Oh, wait--that's a dummy, not a puppet. My mistake. He says he needs to do this for everyone's sake. Chloe responds that people are slow to accept change. Clark is more optimistic: Because they accepted the Blur, he thinks they might be able to accept him, too. Chloe frowns. Clark thinks he might actually be able to be himself from now on. Chloe looks at him sadly, like she's thinking, "You poor, dumb, alien fool."
