We flash white to a fantasy sequence where the plane is going down, there's one parachute left, and Lex gives it to Dropkick. She says, "I'm not going without you!" but Lex forces the parachute on her. He says he loves her, kisses her, and throws her ass out of the plane.
Back to Papa Luthor, who says that the story would make any father proud. He says he has a feeling that's not what really happened, adding that he warned Lex not to trust Dr. Dropkick. Lex gets pissed and throws some stuff around. He shakes the gun and says that Papa Luthor had his name carved into a tombstone. So Lex knows that, but not what his wife's public story was or that she's even alive? Um.... Papa says that he sent search parties to scour half the world. "Looks like you picked the wrong half," Lex says, with intensity. Papa Luthor still has his hands up. He asks what he'd have to gain from Lex's death. Lex doesn't really have an answer for that. Papa says that Dropkick just became one of the richest women in the world. Lex says she never cared about the money. "Oh but she did, Lex," Papa says in a fierce whisper. Papa tells Lex to ask Dropkick what she did with the vial of blood after Lex returned it to her. Whoa, that kinda came out of nowhere. Lex looks confused.
Quick cut to the Caves Where Season Two Started To Suck. Clark turns and says, "Dad, I just don't get it." Maybe that's because you kept turning it down at the club in Metropolis. Clark asks why Jor-El (Terence Stamp noticeably missing in this episode) would help Bo bring his son back when Jor-El wanted Clark to leave in the first place. Bo looks guilty. "You outraged the cows, didn't you!?" Clark demands. Or, rather, "You made a deal with him, didn't you!?" Bo did do the second thing. Bo says that at least Clark has his life back. Flannel, tractors, chores, and a passive-aggressive girlfriend. Thanks, Dad. Clark is glad, for some reason. Clark comments on how being evil was cool because he didn't have to worry about stuff. Bo says that with Clark in town, they can at least face things as a family. Bo pulls out the metal box he stole from Papa Luthor's office. Wow, that must have been uncomfortable in his pocket. Clark explains where he got it, and about The Edge. They open the box. Clark's eyes widen. It's the blood sample. Dramatic music plays.
Cut to the outside of the barn, so we can cut right back inside. Like a third-grade science fair experiment, Bo holds a chunk of meteor rock he was storing in a box (just in case Clark won't feed the cows or bale the hay someday) and holds it next to the vial. The rock glows green and the blood in the vial begins to bubble. That just gave me a great idea: hot gazpacho! Bo tells Clark, who is several feet away up in the loft, that it is indeed Clark's blood. "Do you think Lionel knows?" Clark asks, making me think I'm watching a daytime soap all of a sudden. Bo says that Dr. Dropkick never labeled it before it was stolen from her office. Clark asks why Papa Luthor would want his blood. Couldn't he just settle for the inside of his pants, like Lex? Bo throws the vial across the barn, and it shatters. That was...not very bright. Bo says it doesn't matter now. Obviously. Clark wonders what Papa Luthor knows about him. Bo says they've managed to stay one step ahead of Papa Luthor (they have?), but that, for now, Clark should focus on those closer to home. Wait...you don't think he means...that can't be....
