A sign at the Talon: "Tornado Relief Center." Isn't there a gym or a warehouse better suited? Inside, MamaKent pins up a picture of Bo on a Missing Persons posterboard. MamaKent tells Clark she's going to go talk to the Red Cross. "Any luck?" Lana asks. Yes, Lana. That's why they just pinned Bo's picture to the Missing Persons posterboard. Clark explains what's going on and sounds like he's about to cry. Lana says they'll find him. Lana takes the opportunity to remind Clark of how nice people were to her after the meteor shower. You know, when her parents got in the way of some space rocks? "I'm just glad you're okay," Clark says, completely forgetting about his missing Bo. Lana asks Clark how he found her. He found her boring, yet annoying. Oh, she means during the tornado. Clark says he was just lucky. He says she was lying by the side of the road. That still doesn't explain why he wasn't at the formal with Chloe. Lana asks whether that's really what happened. Clark lies and says that's what happened, even though Lana says it doesn't make sense. For someone who just bitched out a friend for lying, Clark sure could fail a lie detector test right now. MamaKent interrupts with an urgent news bulletin: "No new word." Lana gets back to work. MamaKent babbles that a couple was found in a garage, so there's still hope. Clark blames himself for "bringing this upon us." MamaKent wastes precious time saying it's not his fault. She says that Clark will be exploited all his life, and his parents won't be there to protect him. God, could Clark's day get any worse? She tells Clark to get back out there.
Back in Cryptonia. Bo randomly says that the foundation of the crypt is lead mixed with concrete for stability. "Clark can't see through lead," Bo offers. I thought you didn't want this guy to know all your son's secrets. Nixon gets visibly erect at the new info. More wrangling between Bo and Nixon. It's getting boring. Nixon makes the freedom-of-speech argument, then the "we need to know about alien life" argument. Bo says he knows a way out of the crypt. Bo offers a deal: He'll trade the information for the tape Nixon is holding. "It's your life or your story," Bo says. How very Faustian. Nixon flinches. He offers the tape. Bo destroys it, pulling the tape out of the cartridge. Nixon asks what the plan is. "Feel that," Bo says. Your bicep? Oh, it's a soft spot in the wall. So Bo just randomly knew where the weak mortar was? Similarly, I'm able find the weak areas of the script. Nixon and Bo start digging.
