Lightning flashes. Clark is somewhere else. He's in the Barnness of Afterlifeitude. Folks, seriously, if heaven is a barn, I'm gonna go out and start misbehaving right now. Clark sits up and touches his chest. There's no needle there. He looks around. Everything is bathed in holy light. Clark opens heavy doors and then backs away from the light. In through the holiness walks Bo Duke. Hey, Bo, good to see you! Have you made it with Marilyn Monroe yet? "Dad?" Clark asks. Bo, beaming, says, "Hello, son." For a dead guy, he's been in quite a few episodes since he shuffled off this mortal coil. They hug. Bo tells Clark that he doesn't belong there and has to go back. Instead of asking what it's like to be dead, Clark whines about his problems and says that he's hurt everyone close to him. Bo says that's not true. Of course it's true! The dead do lie! Clark says that Bo died because of him. He explains about the deal with Jarnelle and how there'd be a price to pay -- the life of someone Clark loves. Clark says that he's sorry. Bo says that Clark has nothing to be sorry about: "I lived a full, wonderful life." He says that he had everything a husband or father could possibly dream of. A daughter? Bo says that he's so very proud he died protecting Clark. Yeah, good job with that -- Clark's dead now. Clark asks what Bo was protecting him from. Bo says that Papa Luthor knows Clark's secret. Clark is shitting a brick. "You can't stay here, son," Bo says. "You've gotta keep your mother safe. You've got to keep the whole world safe." Clark shakes his head and says he can't do it without Bo. Well, tough, kiddo. Bo says he can: "This is your destiny, son." He tells Clark he's going to touch the lives of so many people -- not just as a man (ha!), but as a symbol. A big pink triangular symbol. With a rainbow running through it. Also a symbol of peace, justice, and vaguely Judeo-Christian American values. "And now it's time for you to go," Bo concludes. He pushes Clark right in the sternum. Hee. Clark is pulled back, crying, "Not yet!" Bo says that he'll always be with him. "Tell the cows...I think about them...ALWAAAAAAYS!"
Clark opens his eyes. We see Bo's figure in Clark's pupil before the camera backs away. Clark sits up suddenly. He sees Lana. They don't hug. Awkward!
Kent farm at dusk. Clark enters the house hurriedly looking for his mother. MamaKent comes down the stairs in a burnt orange gown. Holy...WOW! She is looking damn, damn fine. She is a MILC indeed: a mom I'd like to compliment. And I will do so. Effusively. Clark looks sorta surprised, too. "What do you think?" she asks. I think I have a physical reaction. Yow! Clark, his troubles forgotten, says that he thinks she looks amazing. Way hotter than Lex's and Lana's dead moms. MamaKent says that she hopes to avoid dumping soup in her lap in front of the governor. Clark smiles and says she looks great. She does. Damn, woman! MamaKent sees that Clark is worried about something. He says he has to talk to her. There's a knock at the door. MamaKent says he's early. It's Papa Luthor in a tux. She says he looks dashing. "Next to you," he says with a flourish, "I'm a man in rags." Charming Bastard! "You should always wear that color," he tells her. Clark is like, "I was gonna say that!" Papa asks Clark if she looks beautiful. Clark doesn't know what to say. MamaKent promises that they'll talk the next day. She kisses him goodbye. "Your carriage awaits, Senator," Papa Luthor says, escorting MamaKent out. Papa smiles: "Goodnight...Clark." Wow. The man is a smooth operator.
