Swann's big-ass building. "You betrayed me!" Clark yells to Swann, who's chilling in an open foyer. "Hello, Kal-El," Swann says, all cool and calm. "My name is Clark," says our mopey teen hero. He's Clark Kent, bitch! Swann asks if Clark thinks the betrayal came from his talking to Papa Luthor. Clark says he's doing more than that. Swann promises that he didn't reveal Clark's secret. He adds that his involvement with Papa Luthor is in Clark's best interest. Clark isn't buying it. Swann asks whether Papa Luthor caused the explosion on the farm or made Clark run wild in Metropolis. Swann says he opened the door to Clark's origins because he thought Clark could handle it. Oops. Swann says he was wrong. Clark reveals the other message in the ship from Jor-El: that he was sent to conquer Earth. Clark asks if that's true. Swann looks to the left and says he doesn't have all the answers. He's still on the same journey as Kal-El. Clark asks him not to call him by that name. Swann tries to make Clark feel better by saying the struggles of fathers and sons are as old as time itself. Ever seen a daddy amoeba try to force his son to split before he wants to? It's messy. Clark insists he's not human. He says it with a lump in his throat I normally only associate with his scenes with Lex. It's time for a Science Platitude from Swann: "Humanity is not only about biology." Clark insists that everything Jor-El has predicted has come true, and that his deal with Bo is killing him. Swann says that if Clark continues on this path, he'll expose his secret to the Luthors and to the world. Clark doesn't want Bo to die for his mistakes. Swann says that if that's Clark's decision, there's something else he has to show Clark. "Activate screen," Swann announces. A panel pops up and reveals a message in Kryptonian. Clark goes to read it. Is it Rumbaf before Quarf, except after Spleii? Clark reads: "I am waiting." He says it must be from Jor-El. Swann says that the message wasn't from space. It was from Earth. He believes that it wasn't meant for Clark. So...who was it meant for? No clue? No? Really? All right, then.
