LuthorCorp. Papa Luthor's office. Lex is standing there. He makes a little comment about being summoned twice in one week. Papa Luthor chastises him about reactivating old projects. Lex says that if he were kept in the loop, he wouldn't have to resort to subterfuge. That doesn't really answer why Lex revived a dormant project, but whatever. Papa Luthor asks why Lex would be so driven to learn the truth about something that he'd use a dangerously unstable drug. Lex says that the truth never really held much merit for Papa Luthor. Wuh? Papa Luthor waves his cell-phone headset at Lex and says he's losing patience with his son. "Now tell me, dammit, what is it you want from me?" he demands. Lex thinks about it and then says, "It doesn't really matter, Dad. I'm never gonna get it." Awwww. Tears, Lex. So sad.
The Barnness of Epilogueitude. Clark is studying, or pretending to, at a desk. Chloe comes in, wearing one of Chris Robinson's fur-lined jackets. Clark asks how she is. Shaky, but truth serum-free, she says. Chloe says that the serum Clark Pulp Fictioned into her chest got rid of all the Levitas. Clark doesn't seem too thrilled. Chloe asks if Clark heard what happened to Son of the Teacher of the Year. Clark says that it's been a rough week for the kid. His mom's in jail. "I never meant to hurt him," Chloe says sadly. Clark, brusquely, says that the kid's mom should have told him sooner. "But that's the thing about the truth," Clark says. "It's bound to come out sooner or later." Chloe says that she needs to come clean. She reveals that she was on her way to ask Clark's parents all the questions he wouldn't answer when she got struck on the bridge. Clark raises his eyebrows. He turns away from her. Chloe circles around to face him. Clark doesn't let her apologize. He says she wasn't herself. Chloe says she really wishes she could believe that. She says there've been so many times when curiosity has gotten the better of her. Near tears, she says that maybe this is just who she is. Clark says she's going after the truth, and that there's nothing wrong with that. Chloe says it's wrong if it hurts the people she cares about most. She worries that one day she won't be given another chance to say she's sorry. "Today's not that day," Clark says cutely. He even smiles and gives her a hug. Chloe really needed that.
