Why is it always the golden hour at the Kent's farm? The sunlight is always gorgeous. Unless there's a tornado coming or something. Anyway, Clark wanders through the barn, reading something, and then somehow senses that Willowbrook is standing nearby, which is creepy. Say something, dude! Don't just stand there and wait for someone to notice you! Clark apologizes for not keeping in touch, and Willowbrook tells him that he doesn't have to make excuses, and calls Clark "Naman." Clark protests that he's not Naman, and that it's "just a story on a cave wall." Willowbrook says that he believed that too, until last night, when Clark's "destiny was revealed." He's going to die in a horrible car crash at eighteen? I think we all know what Clark's destiny is, unless the writers are planning to change the story significantly, so it's not that interesting to hear. What is interesting is how Clark will get there, and how Lex will become evil, and all that stuff. Willowbrook plops down a book, and we see that the page shows a picture of the knife Jeremiah stole.
Fade to Clark showing his father the same book, and explaining that the knife is called Palac, the Star Blade. Hee! That's a funny name. Clark further explains that the knife "is supposed to shine a light on the true Ziget, so Naman can identify and destroy his enemy." (By the way, I'm going with the closed captioning spelling of all these terms.) Pa Kent reiterates that Willowbrook thinks that Clark is Naman, and Clark says that it's kind of overwhelming, and that he doesn't think it's true. Pa Kent urges Clark to forget all this nonsense, but Clark says that some of the prophesies are starting to come true. For example, Jeremiah now has superpowers, and the prophecy said that the Kiwatche who had the knife would be given powers to protect it until they could give it to the true Naman. Pa Kent says that he only had Clark's powers for a short time, but that it "was very intoxicating." I love John Schneider's line delivery here -- he makes it sound like instead of "intoxicating," he wanted to say "arousing," but the censors put the kibosh on it. Clark realizes that Jeremiah isn't just going to give up the knife, and Pa Kent tells Clark to stop Jeremiah before Papa Luthor gets his magnificent-bastard hands on him.
Pete is in the Torch office, arguing with someone on the phone. Chloe walks in and overhears the end of the conversation, and makes a joke about forwarding all telemarketing calls to Pete. Totally not picking up on the fact that Pete is pissed off, Chloe continues to barrage him with questions about what the phone call was about, and why he's wearing the same clothes he was yesterday. Pete says that he was "laundry-impaired" this morning. Chloe asks if he wants to cover the gymnastics tryouts. Pete says she should find someone else. Chloe can't believe Pete is "passing up the opportunity to ogle Smallville High's women in spandex." Yeah, Pete! You're a big ol' perv, and everyone knows it! And Chloe is your perv enabler. Pete says he can't do it, and the bell rings, so he leaves for class. Chloe asks him to hang on so they can walk together, but when she looks up, Pete is gone. Why is it on television that no one actually leaves for class until the bell rings? In my high school, there was one bell that meant "Class is over!" and one bell that meant "Class begins" and you did your traveling in between those two bells ringing. If you waited for the bell to ring, you were already late. Then again, I was one of those nerds who was really nervous about being late for class.
