Torch. Perry walks in slowly. Chloe -- without turning from her computer monitor -- tells him it's a wise decision, coming inside: "Weather service expects a light shower of threshing machines, followed by a drizzle of combines." Perry is amused. He wanders over to the Wall of Weird (yes, I know, the one that never got taken down) as Chloe offers to help him find whatever it is he's looking for. He asks why. She says that Perry was once the kind of reporter she'd like to be. She's curious as to how one goes from multiple Pulitzer nominee to chasing Bigfoot. Perry says that the only thing worse than not ever getting a big story is getting it and being afraid to write it. Chloe's incredulous that Perry "The Pit Bull" White was ever afraid of anything. Chloe is wearing that fabulous new scent from London, "Naïveté." Perry says that Papa Luthor can be very persuasive. Chloe probes. Perry says that not everybody appreciates good investigative journalism. Especially when it "treads on the toes of the rich and vengeful." Perry notices a newspaper story from when Clark burned a symbol on the Kent barn. Chloe tells Perry the police chalked it up to frat boys trying to crop circles on the barn. "Why?" Chloe asks. Perry says that Clark intrigues him. Hmm, hard-drinking stranger from out of town intrigued by handsome farmboy. It's not like it doesn't happen every day. Chloe looks at the newspaper story, and then back at Perry. She seems confused, or scared, or both.
