Rooftop. BatChica, maskless, poses dramatically at the edge of the roof. She calls Clark a "meathead," and says that if he wants a show-and-tell, he should go first. "I don't know," Clark says. Don't know...what? Clark says he was born this way. Don't begrudge him his lack of intelligence, BatChica. She tells him that he's lucky: the worst part is remembering what it's like to be normal. She calls herself a freak of nature, and says that she got that way when she received a heart transplant six months ago. She got a heart from a girl who died in the last meteor shower. She tells Clark he has no idea what it's like to have your life traded for someone else's. Er. Yeah. She says she carries something so she'll never forget. It's a giant pendant with a glowing green rock inside. Clark lurches backward, nauseated. He says he's kinda allergic. "To a rock? Okay, whatever," she says. She tells Clark that she guesses Clark and Chloe have all they need for their little article. "I'm not here to expose you," Clark says. But it would be nice.
Clark asks for BatChica's help in finding MamaKent's muggers. She says that other people need a lot more help than someone looking for a missing watch. She walks off. Clark stops her with "It belonged to my dad." She guesses that Clark lost him, and that he can't say goodbye. She says she's the same. She was coming home with her mom from a gymnastics meet and they got mugged. A knife went into her heart. "When I looked up, I saw her lying there," she says. You looked...up? And saw your mom...lying on the ground. Look, I'm not trying to poke holes in her story, but...you know. It's not a great story. Clark asks if that's why BatChica fights crime like this. Wow, Clark. Brilliant deduction. You should be on House. With a lot of emotion, BatChica says that her mom dedicated her life to a group called Akrada that fights gangs, dealers, and the suits who wanted to tear down their homes. "She was this little woman," BatChica says, "but she was a bad-ass." Was she a badaaaaaassss? Clark says it's not fair to have someone like that ripped out of your life. Clark and BatChica bond. She says she can help him to find the watch, but she thinks that's not what Clark is really after: "You want justice. Just like me." She tells Clark that the two thugs are part of the 13th Street Gang. They rumble with the Spring Terrace Crips. She says that the guy Clark is after is underground (I can dig it) and that his crew is all packing "9 mils." That doesn't seem like a lot of medicine. "But I'm in if you're in," she says. I think Clark is in.
