School. Oh yeah, I forgot they still go to high school. So did they, apparently. Torch. Clark holds up a cup of coffee and a pastry to Chloe. He delivered it as thanks for her recommendation to Lana. Clark mentions the personnel changes at The Talon. Chloe is way ahead of him on the Lucas Luthor tip. She says that the story of the prodigal son taking over the castle could land someone a byline on the front page of The Daily Planet. Sadly, she's right. Clark doesn't trust Lucas and thinks he's hiding something. Oh, ya think? Chloe says he's had a tough life. Clark asks if she found anything weird in his past. "Just the source," Chloe says. She hands Clark a piece of paper.
In the Barnness of Gay Roommateitude, Lex holds the same paper. "Metropolis United Charities," Lex reads. Clark says that prior to two weeks ago, Lucas's file didn't exist. How would he know unless he had checked before and after that? Lex says it's like somebody wanted him to be found. And the detectives Lex hired didn't tell him where they got their information. More basketball! Now! This is getting boring! Lex thinks his dad was hiding Lucas all along. The whole finding-Lucas thing was a set-up for Lex to lose everything to Papa Luthor. Sneaky! Lex says that while he's been playing checkers, his dad's been playing chess. And Lucas was playing Chinese poker! It all makes sense now!
