The Barnness of Kryptonconferencing. SoFine is waiting for Clark in the loft. SoFine asks "Kal-El" how he's feeling. "So I didn't imagine that part," Clark guesses. Clark says he thought he was the last son of Krypton, but "you people keep popping up." It's like relatives when you're rich, yo. Mo' money, mo' problems, Kal. SoFine chuckles. He says that a superior civilization is hard to eradicate. Clark asks why he's there. SoFine says it's to help stop what's coming. Uh...what is coming? SoFine is also there to help Clark walk the path of the True Kryptonian. For one thing, stop fucking lying all the time. Clark says he's not interested in being "superior." SoFine asks Clark why he trusts humans more than his own people. Clark says that he's going by what he's seen. SoFine suggests looking closer. Clark asks why SoFine posed as his professor. SoFine asks why Clark keeps his secret, even from the woman he loves. SoFine says he had to observe Clark to see how influenced he'd been by "these...humans." Clark says that SoFine says it like it's a bad thing. SoFine says that's what he's seen. He says that humans show promise, but that they're still duplicitous. Clark says that they can be petty and dishonest, but also honest and loyal and protective. Even to someone from another planet. So it's a wash, then? "Kal-El," SoFine tries to reason. "My name is Clark," says Clark. And he's no Earl. Clark lectures that he'll always believe in his friends and family. SoFine hopes that trust isn't misplaced. He tells Clark that he knows where to find SoFine when he's ready to accept the truth. The righteous truth! Clark, looking up at the sky, sees clusters of stars.
SoFine's at the spaceship hangar. He holds up the silver Kryptonite. It seems to merge with his hand and fall into his flesh. He drops it, and it's just a plain black rock. Well, that's a neat trick, then.
Next week: dramatic consequences.
