We cut to Kara's eyes, looking sad. The camera pulls back quickly to reveal that she's floating above a major city. A giant commercial airplane is heading right for her. Her superhearing doesn't notice until it's right on her. She sails up, and the airplane flies under her, barely missing. Kara flies toward us and then up over us. We see the nation's Capitol building in the background. Kara was an unidentified moping object.
Opening credits. Commercials. Life Is Wild. In my pants.
The Daily Planet. We see a computer screen showing a Web site for something called ISIS. It's white on pink with the words, "Together we will build our future." Wow, generic. A text window says, "Support for the meteor infected." There's a picture of an ugly green meteor rock. Chloe is looking at the screen and writing down notes. We hear a whoosh. Chloe's papers flap on the desk. Clark asks about the web site. He asks if this was what was so important. Chloe, already getting up, tells him that the site should be the least of his worries. She tells him that the night before, the FAA halted flights over Washington because of a near-miss with a red-and-blue blur in the sky. Chloe says they think it was a ground-to-air missile (a festive one), but Clark and Chloe both assume it was Kara. Do missiles have giant boobs? Oh, wait, I forgot -- in the 50s, the government did develop the K-541 Twin Bazongas Missile. My dad used to have one of their calendars. Clark blames himself for this Kara situation. Chloe reminds Clark that he's Kara's cousin, not her father. Oh, who knows what weird breeding those Kryptonians are into. Maybe she's his grandniece or something. Clark regrets pushing Kara away and thinks she must be hurt and angry. He wants to bring her back. Chloe sounds annoyed that Kara doesn't fly under the radar and may blow Clark's secret.
Jimmy, spotting Clark, comes over to ask about Kara and whether Clark's heard from her. Hi, I'm Chloe, and I'm standing right fucking here. Chloe shoots Clark a look. Clark doesn't answer. Jimmy says they look worried. He asks what's up. Clark and Chloe weirdly walk away from Jimmy while talking to him. Clark says that Kara decided to go to Washington, D.C. and not tell anyone. Jimmy, trying to lighten things up, says maybe she just wanted to tour the city and that he's sure their postcards are in the mail. Dude. Just stop. Chloe thinks Jimmy knows something. Probably just one thing, total. Clark, sounding a little threatening, says Kara is his family and that Jimmy needs to tell him if he knows anything. Jimmy sighs. He tells them about the interest Kara had in Lois's spaceship video. Jimmy reveals that the evidence pointed to the government. Chloe is annoyed that Jimmy didn't tell them this earlier. Jimmy insists that Kara made him promise to keep it a secret. "She trusted me," Jimmy explains. Jimmy ignores Chloe's hurt look and apologizes to "C.K.," saying he had no idea she'd follow that lead all the way to Washington. Clark thanks Jimmy and pulls Chloe aside all of two feet to tell her that the government might have her crystal. Hi, I'm Jimmy, and I'm standing two feet away. I can hear you just fine! In fact, let me turn on this voice recorder. Clark tells Chloe that Kara will do anything to get that crystal back. Anything? Oh, Al and Miles. You dirty, dirty men.
