Commercials. Star Trek reboot. I sure hope that works out better than the Superman reboot.
Kent Farm. Nighttime. Instead of cows, we hear crickets. That is how you manage a production budget! Inside, Clark is pouring hot water for tea from a very old tin pot. Clark thinks Chloe should go to the hospital, the way they take characters there every single week. It's a hard habit to break. Chloe just sits on the couch, staring at the fireplace. Clark says he understands if she doesn't want to talk. He sets down the teacup and Chloe jumps. "He never left me alone," Chloe says, just as Clark is turning away. They found a hotel just outside Metropolis and he wouldn't let her leave. She's crying. "He... I was so scared," she says. Clark softens. He sits down near her. Chloe says that they were hiding out and one day Davis decided they should leave. They stopped at a gas station and she ran. Clark says she's safe now. Chloe puts her hands over Clark's as they frame the fireplace with their bodies. "No," she says, "he's still out there." She says whatever was good in him is gone, and no one's safe. Convincing! "Not till you destroy that beast," she says. That gives Clark lots to think about. And it's not his strong suit. His strong suit is an actual set of clothing that he wears to work.
It is at this moment that I hear scratching on my door. Curious, I go to answer it. Who could it be?
Roger: Hey, buddy, it's me. Roger. Roger Moore? The Rottweiler? I helped you recap a while back. Except only one of us got paid. Don't you remember that?
Omar: Vaguely. Every time I hear a news report about somebody getting their face chewed off by a dog, you Rottweilers kind of blend together for me.
Roger: Fair enough.
Omar: What brings you to my house, where I wasn't living back then? How did you even find me?
Roger: I'm a dog. You know, I smelled you. Homeward Bound and shit. It's more curse than blessing, really.
Omar: Ah. Yeah.
Roger: So... what am I doing--
Omar: -- here. Yeah. That's what I was asking.
Roger: Well, Omar G., I'm going away on a trip soon, and I'm saying bon voyage to some people. You were way down on the list, but you said some nice things, and I figured, why not drop by and see how you're doing? Anything new?
