Opening credits. Commercials. Stick It. I'm not going to say I won't see this. Because I might.
Daily Planet. Clark and Chloe get out of an elevator. Clark, as loudly as he can, is telling Chloe about how Papa Luthor's always hanging out at his house, acting like he belongs there. Wow, I'm sure no one on the staff of the major metro newspaper would have any interest in hearing about how the richest man in the state is hanging out with the newest state senator. Chloe, doing a weird caramelized swoop thing with her bangs, says that it sounds like MamaKent invited the wolf to come on in. Arrroooo! Chloe asks Clark whether maybe it's possible that Papa Luthor doesn't know his secret. Wow, that hair is making Chloe look like Frenchy from Grease. Clark says that the things Papa says and the look in his eye make him sure that Papa knows. Chloe says that if that's true, he's probably using MamaKent to get closer to Clark. Devious! It's almost like he has a plan that will somehow benefit him. How very Papa Luthor-like! Clark is really annoyed that Papa Luthor is helping his mother and that she's trusting him more and more. Wait till they start doing it, Clark. That's gonna be a horror show. Chloe tells Clark that MamaKent wouldn't trust Papa so much if she knew the truth. Clark still hasn't told her? What the fuck? He can't even keep it real with his mom? Clark whines that he was going to tell her, but that she's been through so much he didn't want to disturb her. Nice. Clark says that he didn't want to worry her. Chloe says that Clark could be putting her at risk for a lot worse than that. Clark stares at atoms. Stupid atoms. "Stuff is happening!" music plays as we transition to the next scene.
