The Talon, daytime. As Chloe is going through stuff in boxes, Jimmy arrives, carrying an acoustic guitar and an ugly little lamp. Chloe is holding a VHS tape in her hand and jokes that unpacking your fiancé should be a required course for marriage. Chloe says she had no idea Jimmy liked recording bass fishing shows and enjoys Pablo Neruda love poems. D'oh! Busted. I had a book of Pablo Neruda love poems. It's the poor-man's way of sealing the deal when you're in your early-20s and single. I suggest "Love Sonnet XI." Chloe is also dubious about Jimmy owning every CD ever made by ABBA. Also not gay. Jimmy and I have more in common than I thought. Jimmy says he's complicated. Speaking of which, please try not to scratch the Avril Lavigne CDs. Chloe had no idea there were so many sides to Jimmy Olsen. Jimmy, wearing his dorky retro brown bowling shirt, asks if it's a problem. They kiss. Chloe suggests Jimmy keep his ABBA away from Whitesnake-loving Lois. Jimmy says he and Lois are still on the outs since he didn't reveal to her Lex's arctic antics. Chloe agrees that Lois holds a grudge, but says it'll all be over in a few weeks. Jimmy goes to a small bookshelf to put away some of his comics and magazines. As he moves a book aside, a small piece of pink paper falls out. It's all that's left of Lana! No, actually, it's a love note. Jimmy reads it. It's the note Chloe read to Clark in "Fever." The one about not being who he thinks she is and being the girl of his dreams masquerading as the girl next door. Uh oh. It's type-written and a bit crumpled up. I admit I typed love notes back in the day. When did we ever think that was romantic? Chloe comes back into the room and sees what Jimmy found. She gulps and says they skated over the conversation about boundaries. Er, not Jimmy's fault. Why invite him to move in and then leave that where he could find it? Jimmy looks at Chloe sadly. He says he stumbled into the razor wire surrounding the Clark issue. Jimmy says he knew Clark was her first love, but didn't know she felt like that about him. What part of "First love" does he not get? Chloe says it's ancient history and that she wrote that note when she was 15. So she was 14 in the first season? That doesn't sound right. Chloe says that Clark is her best friend and that's all. Jimmy reads the last line of the note out loud. Jimmy says this is his biggest nightmare. Chloe, not gently, says it was a schoolgirl crush and that Jimmy's constant insecurity about it is wearing thin. Ouch. Jimmy says something always comes up when he tries to leave it in the past. Chloe doesn't know what else she can do. Jimmy says she can ask herself why she never said these things to him. Because it's a totally different situation and she's not 15 anymore? Maybe? Jimmy hands her the note. He walks out.
