The music finishes. MamaKent is coming down the stairs at home, holding a sheet of paper. She hands it to Bo. She says it's a letter of resignation. She says she can't keep working for Papa Luthor. She says she can't believe she trusted him. Clark says that without the file, the police can't find anything about him. The police wouldn't have access to those files anyway, even as evidence, would they have? MamaKent supposes that she may have only been hired to provide more info about her son. "I'm sorry, Mom," Clark says. Whiner. Bo tells them to wait. He asks if quitting is the best thing to do. I feel a platitude coming on. He absurdly looks on the bright side: if this hadn't happened, they wouldn't know Papa Luthor was keeping tabs on Clark. He says they should take a page out of the Luthor playbook and keep their enemies closer. Bo's platitudes are going evil! Clark looks worried. MamaKent and Bo look positively tickles. So this is what being bad feels like. It's delicious.
Outside shot of the farm at night. Inside the basement, the ship sits uncovered. We zoom in on the oft-seen octagonal hole on its flank.
Not quite clean transition to the octagonal piece sitting on a kitchen countertop. MamaKent takes the piece, fingers it. Bo comes up behind her and asks if she's coming up. She says in a minute. She buries the piece in a huge green tin of flour. She places the tin under the kitchen sink. The novelty popcorn-sized tin reads, "FLOUR."
That's it. We end this pretty good episode on a tin of flour.
Next week: Who shot Papa Luthor? Was it Sue Ellen or Maggie Simpson?
