The thunder must have been the sound of Clark's stupidity. He's laying Chloe down in a bed at The Talon. Lois asks Clark what he's doing. Couldn't he at least have put clothes on Chloe first? Clark explains to Lois that Lex was going to transfer Chloe to Belle Reve. Lois suggests that that may be what Chloe needs. Clark snaps that Lois doesn't know what goes on there, and asks if they really want doctors poking around inside Chloe's head. "If it makes her feel better, I don't care if Daffy Duck whacks her with a mallet!" Lois says. Just when I thought Lois couldn't get any dumber... Chloe groggily sits up in bed: "Hey, guys. I'm drugged. Not deaf." Chloe says she's thirsty. Clark offers to get water, but she really wants a cappuccino to "clear the cobwebs." Lois goes to make a double. Before she does, she tells Clark not to do anything ridiculous while she's gone.
Clark smirks at Lois, and tells Chloe that they're all worried about her. Chloe rolls her eyes and says she knows what she saw. She says, very deliberately, that she didn't imagine things, and that she didn't hurt herself; she says she wouldn't do that. "I'm not my mother," Chloe says, very seriously. Clark takes her hand and says he knows. Just then, the whooshing sound returns, and Raccoon Girl is asking for help again. I think she should think about a Free and Clear calling plan. Chloe asks if Clark heard that. "Heard what?" Clark asks. He can't hear, even with the superhearing? Use your cochlear ocular whatsit, Clark! Raccoon Girl appears next to Clark, and the way it's filmed uses that stuttery black-and-white grain like in The Ring. Guess what Raccoon Girl wants. Help. I can identify. Chloe is startled. Clark just looks at Chloe sadly. You poor, crazy bastard.
