Kent kitchen. MamaKent, wearing lovely red business attire, is looking over some papers as Clark walks in. She asks what Clark thinks of something as a closing: "It isn't enough to simply give when we can. Upholding the principles of truth, justice, and the American way isn't a matter of convenience, it's a matter of conscience." Clark mutters, "Sounds like words to live by." Clunk. MamaKent is thrilled that Clark likes it, and hopes the deep pockets at the civil liberties fundraiser will think so, too. Clark has something he wants to talk to her about, but MamaKent asks whether it can wait, because she's got to rush out to Metropolis. "Lionel knows," Clark says simply. That stops her. Clark says that Papa knows his secret. He's not sure how. MamaKent says that she may know. She brings up the tape of security footage showing Clark surviving an explosion and how Papa Luthor was trying to help her out of a blackmail situation. She says that Papa Luthor took care of it, and that he claimed not to be interested in the contents of the video. "And I believed him," she says, bitterly. Clark asks why she didn't tell him this sooner. MamaKent sighs, and says that Clark was still in a lot of pain over Bo Duke's death. She says that she wanted to protect him for a change. MamaKent says that Papa Luthor's going to be at the fundraiser tonight. Clark says that they need to keep from tipping off Papa Luthor and just stick to their regular routine until they know what he wants. He says that's what Bo Duke would have done. Bo Duke would have gone and punched Papa Luthor in the mouth and bellowed a bunch of threats, then gone home and rubbed on the cows for a few hours. MamaKent sighs, and says she'd better get going. Clark offers to go with her. She says that if Clark starts guarding her all the time, Papa will definitely know something's up. "Don't worry," she tells Clark as she gathers her things. "I can handle Lionel." You go, MamaKent! Handle your shit!
