Outside, Clark finds Luka sitting on a tractor reading a comic book. He's already taking after Clark by moping about how MamaKent and Bo won't want him to stay since they don't believe him. He reveals a little too much by asking what happens if he doesn't have a home and if he did bad things before his "amnesia." Clark says everything'll be fine. Then he asks about Luka's comic. It's a fictional title called Warrior Angel. Clark asks why he likes it so much. Because it's someone who helps people who can't protect themselves. It's a cheese satellite! Beaming down a cheesy premonition! My God. A beam of light made entirely of cheddar. It's beautiful. Luka says suddenly that he likes being around Clark. "It's peaceful," he says. So far we know this kid can probably read minds, but that he's not getting anything from Clark. Is that because of Clark's superpowers or because Clark's head is just devoid of any thought? A lilting song by Jason Schwartzman's band Phantom Planet is a nice relief from the crap rock usually played on this show. As the song begins, Clark invites the boy to come shoot some hoops. Clark dribbles a bit (the ball, people, the basketball) and jumps up, dunking it succinctly. It's a male-bonding montage! The kid granny-shoots the ball. Clark gives him some tips, even though we already know he sucks at b-ball and gets his ass whipped by Jocko Whitney on a regular basis. Somehow it works: the kid shoots and scores. Clark even says words to that effect.
The lilting music is abruptly cut off by the Walking Music of Doom. BeatDead Dad walks into the dim hospital reception area. A blonde woman who looks like she could be Cheri Oteri or Chloe's mom turns around. BeatDead Dad says he's looking for the boy from the paper, the one who lost his memory. He says he's a private detective representing parents who lost their kid. The nurse tells him Luka's not there anymore but that she'll go get the doctor. BeatDead Dad leaves as soon as the receptionist walks out of sight. He goes to Makeup Stepmom, who's wearing a crazy red leather jacket and matching red leather beret (inconspicuous, no?) and they walk out together. Evilly.
