Kent Farm. MamaKent slowly comes down the stairs to find Clark at the kitchen table. Clark asks if his father is still upset. "What do you think?" MamaKent asks sharply. Clark asks if she's mad. "I'm upset," she says. She says more than that, she's disappointed. Clark -- who just told someone that he would have wanted her with or without red rock -- blames the incident on red Kryptonite. MamaKent can't believe he ran off and got married. "It wasn't legal!" Clark says. Then MamaKent unloads with both barrels: "That's not even the point. Marriage is sacred, Clark! It's about two people who trust each other and are willing to go through life together no matter how difficult it gets. I thought we had taught you that!" Damn! I guess I know one household that wasn't watching Married by America. MamaKent says that Clark is amazing; he makes life-and-death decisions every day. "Why did you do this?" she asks. Clark is crying! He sheds a tear from his left eye! Holy emoting, Superman! He says, desperately, that there's a part of him that never feels freer than when he's with KentFan. MamaKent doesn't look convinced. He says KentFan makes him feel normal and special at the same time. MamaKent says she knows how badly he wants to be with someone, but she just expected him to show better judgment. Red Kryptonite, mom, shit! She would have rather Clark had the threesome in the hot tub earlier? I really hope all the weird mixed messages in this episode aren't more FCC fallout, because that would be truly sad. Clark, belectured, cries a little more. Let it out, Clark. Let it out.
Strummy not-all-that-bad music (Jonathan Rice, it turns out) plays in the Barnness of just-got-tolditude. Clark is moping as KentFan walks in. I half-expect MamaKent to run in and stab her with a pitchfork. She says she knows why Clark is alone. Clark comes down to meet her. They meet halfway up the stairs. Clark notices that she's wearing the lead bracelet again. The one that was hopelessly broken? She says it keeps her grounded. She thanks Clark. "For what?" he asks. For helping her to be a better person. Clark helping someone to be a better person? It's certainly not by example, that's for sure. Clark says he has faith in her. KentFan says she knows they can never be together after what she did, but that doesn't change how she feels: "For as long as I live, I'm never going to reveal your secret." She hesitates. "I love you," she says, almost inaudibly. "That's all." She walks down the stairs and toward the exit. Clark calls for her to wait. He turns her around. KentFan begins to cry, hard. He pulls her to his chest. Clark looks pained. The camera pulls back on them as they stand there, hugging, at the bottom of the barn. Finally! A end-of-episode barn scene that doesn't suck. And yes, I got a little teary-eyed there. I'm not made of, like, stone here dammit.
