Oh, yeah! I forgot all about this theme song. Commercials. Celia Cruz rules, even if she's shilling for Dr Pepper.
Mmm pastoral Kent Farm, where the cows have missed us. Clark is standing in the bed of the family's red truck, pitching huge bales of hay over a white picket fence. Lana approaches on a horse and Clark doesn't even stress over her seeing him use his strength like this. Clark greets Lana and says he hasn't seen her in a long time. He says it like it's a bad thing. Lana says she got some time off at the Talon and thought she'd take the horse out for a run. "He hasn't been out much since, uh, Whitney..." she trails off. Hey, Lana. Wanna take this opportunity to list off all the tragedies and abandonments in your life? No? You sure? We're here for you if you need us. Awkward pause. Lana says she heard about what happened at the electronics lab. She says it sounded wild. Clark counters. It was, in fact, "pretty weird." Wow. Wacky. Clark says it's like Marshall is in his own world, taking teenaged alienation to a whole other level. I hate when the show takes on these faux psychobabble tones. Lana says they all have ways of escaping from their lives. She rides, Chloe writes (weird dialogue choice there. The way she talks, those two things sound almost identical), and Clark, according to Lana, does incredibly strenuous farm chores by himself. Clark says he guesses Lana knows his deepest and darkest secret now. I want to scratch off all my skin with a spork. Smiles all around. Clark tries to pat the horse on the nuzzle, but it goes, "Neeeeey!" and moves its head back. Lana says the horse is sick, and that the vet just attributes it to old age. She says Jocko Whitney's mom wants to sell the horse since she can't afford to "stable" him anymore. Clark offers to keep the horse at the Kent homestead. "It is a farm after all," Clark says. Well, damn, I guess it is! How very agrarian. Lana thanks Clark. He smiles moonily.
