Clark superspeeds into the theaters and walks down the aisle. Pete comes up behind him and says he thought Clark was the band. He says that if they don't show, they're stuck with some MP3s and his boom box. Clark scans the stage, looking for Reese Lite. He x-ray-visions backstage and sees her kneel down next to Principal Asskick in skeletal form. Pete asks what's wrong. Clark tells him to lock the door and not let in anyone else. Clark speeds to the stage, finds Reese, and tells her he knows what's going on. He says she needs help. She turns and looks older than before. Did she suck the old age out of Asskick? "I need him," she says. Who in the what, now? Clark says he won't let her hurt anyone else. She says, "I am saving them, Clark, from lives that are never going to be as happy as they are now." Clark says there's more to life than Spirit Week and cheerleading. That's very insightful of him. She says he's wrong and that he'll never be as young, perfect, or beautiful ever again. She must not know how old he is in real life. She reaches for Clark; he grabs her by both wrists and throws her, right through the big stage banner and onto a table. She gets up. She looks into a revolving mirror cube and we see glimpses of her getting even older and withered. Clark comes to find her. She falls back on the floors and disintegrates, right after turning into a charcoal skeleton. Ashes to ashes, cheer to cheer.
Kent Farm. "More bills?" Clark asks as Bo walks in with some envelopes. Bo says they just keep on coming. MamaKent asks Clark if there's any more fallout from what happened at school. He says spirit week is "kaput." He says the principal will be fine (yay!) and warned Clark about being late as he was taken into the ambulance. Bo says the situation with Gramps is sad. Clark reveals that he went to see Grumpy. He waited this long to give MamaKent the cashier's check. They could have starved by now, Clark. Clark says that he found out Grumpy wanted to get involved in his life after Clark was adopted, but that Bo and MamaKent wouldn't let him see Clark. What? When was this scene? Did we miss something? Bo says it's complicated. And unscripted. Bo says that Clark couldn't control his abilities back then like he can now. They were afraid their secret would spill and they didn't trust Gramps to keep it under wraps. "He's family," Clark says. Clark is sad that Gramps isn't a part of their lives because of Clark. "Every young man wants to have a relationship with his grandpa," Bo says, pulling out the old family platitude almanac. Bo says in Clark's case it may not be possible. Why not? He can control his powers now, can't he? This makes no fucking sense. Clark just accepts their bullshit.
