Clark's college. SoFine is walking seriously through campus as Chloe, wearing a not-at-all-inconspicuous beige trench coat, pretends to make a phone call. Why does SoFine walk at all if he can just zip everywhere? Chloe hangs up the pay phone, and we realize that her coat is missing the bottom half. So, does this mean Chloe is investigating SoFine? I guess that's what the investigative coat was all about.
Kent farm. Home to no vineyards that we know of. Clark walks in to the living room as MamaKent lies with the Kryptonite on her chest. She removes it when Clark comes in and puts it in its protective box. Sad music plays as they have a heart-to-heart. The skin stains have spread to her neck and the side of her face. She asks Clark for a smile. Geez, Ma, this isn't exactly party time, you know? Clark asks if he can get her anything. MamaKent says that she knows what's happening and that she's more than ready to give up her life for Clark. Clark tells her not to talk like that. She tells Clark that he's given her so much happiness, and that she doesn't know what she would have been without him. Clark mutters that he's the reason all this is happening. She tells him never to feel guilty about the situation. She says she wouldn't have it any other way. Except maybe for the "excruciating pain and dying" part. She says that Clark is a wonderful man now. A super guy, even. "My job...my job is done," she says. Clark says it's not. For one thing, the laundry is piling up and there are dishes and...oh, there goes the flaring pain again. Clark tells her to fight. "I love you, Clark," she says. Clark looks like he might cry. MamaKent says that just because she's gone doesn't mean her love goes with her: "I'll always be in your heart. Always." Wanna shed a tear, Clark? No? All right. No pressure. Clark says that he's not going to let her die. "Baby," she tells him. Glycerin? Visine Tears? No? You're going to try to do it with acting? Whatever you say there, buddy.
