I don't know how Apple keeps making awesome iPod commercials, they just do.
Kent Farm. The cows are worried this might be their last episode ever. Thank Bovine God for those residuals. Inside the Barnness of Rescuetude, Clark is laid out on the couch. It looks like a copy of Entertainment Weekly is sitting on the coffee table. Clark wakes up. Martian Manhunter, wearing a smart yellow shirt, is standing by the barn window holding Clark's football. Go long, Kryptonian! Clark suddenly grabs his chest as he sits up. "How does it feel to be whole again?" Manhunter asks. He tosses Clark the football. Clark wonders if the guy meant "whole" or "hole." They are very different answers. Clark squeezes the football and it pops with a dusty puff. I guess he's got the strength back. Clark stands up. "I was dying. And you saved me," he says, figuring it all out. Manhunter says that the healing effect of the sun brought back Clark from death. So they had to fly all the way to the sun? Regular Earth-distance sun didn't help? Manhunter says he only promised to be a guardian over Clark, but he couldn't stand by and watch the galoot die. "You shouldn't have had to," says an ungrateful Clark. Manhunter explains something we already knew: That Jor-El sent Clark on an impossible mission to be a God among men. Clark mopes that he sometimes feels he has to be two different people. Clark says he can't keep expecting Manhunter to bail him out. Martian Manhunter says it's the last time: the sun has the opposite effect on him. He's lost his powers. But not his good looks, thank goodness. I call "no fair." Manhunter rules. He even says that Clark's destiny is greater than his, which is complete bullshit. How does he know that? Manhunter says that with the Fortress destroyed, Clark will have to do it without his father's guidance. Like Clark ever listened to the guy anyway. Clark says that when he was dying, he saw Bo Duke right in front of him, as well as his mother and Lana. Clark says he's written eulogies and let people walk away, but he's never really said goodbye. He says he's been holding onto a life on the farm that hasn't existed for years. So it's the farm's fault you're such a lame-o? Yeesh. Manhunter asks what Clark plans to do. "Let it go," Clark says. Clark says that's the only way he'll find a new life. Manhunter hands Clark his red jacket. Way-too-serious music plays as Clark puts on his Members Only jacket. It is a new high-water mark of lameness for Clark.
