Kara's definitely not hiding out: She's posing on the ledge of ten-foot wall in a blue belly shirt and red mini, her long blond hair and makeup done perfectly. An American flag flaps in the breeze behind her. A photographer stands on the street below, snapping pictures as she tries out different poses. The upskirt shots will be all over the net shortly. He shouts encouraging clichés at her, like how she's "the woman of tomorrow -- today!" Clark wanders onto the set. Kara sees him and suggests taking a break. She walks down the stairs toward him instead of, like, flying over. "It's been a long time, Kal-El," she says within earshot of at least one person. They hug warmly. Clark expresses his surprise at seeing her earlier. "How long have you been in town?" he asks, but the tone is all "What are you doing here?" She doesn't say anything, so he prompts her: "You didn't come to Earth to be the first super-powered pinup girl." Kara says she needs to get her image out and around the city, ASAP. Clark looks at her like he's not buying it, so she tells him he needs to trust her. "I'm doing this for you," she says. He glances at the racks and racks of various blue-and-red outfits and notes that it doesn't feel like much of a favor. Kara, I think he's trying to tell you that he wanted to be the first super-powered pinup girl. She says she spent a lot of time looking for her mother without finding her and then decided to come back to the only place she has any family. He doesn't entirely buy it. "What you're doing right now flies in the face of how I've chosen to live on this planet my whole life," he says. If she cares about family, she'll tell him why she's really there. Kara sighs and says she didn't want to hurt him, but she's on a mission from Jor-El. Making pretty all over the city is a part of that. Kara apologizes, but Jor-El has moved on from ol' Kal. "He says you're no longer his son," she tells him. Clark uses his super-frowning powers.
