Kent Farm at night. Inside, Clark is still blind. This trend? It will continue. MamaKent helps him sit down and fluffs a couch pillow for him before moving over to Bo Duke to tell him that they have to do something. It's the first of many instances this episode in which people will confuse Clark's blindness for deafness. Bo exposits that Clark's retinas were scarred by that heat burst. Lemme get this straight: Krptonite affects Clark, but only when he's close to it. Removing a Kryptonite bullet from his chest healed him instantly, but a little green light to the eyes causes permanent damage? Whatthefuckever. Bo says that the doctor was baffled. Probably even more baffled when he couldn't draw blood. MamaKent explains that it's because Bo Duke handcuffed the doc. Oh, that was just Bo being kinky. Bo says that the last time they trusted a doctor, she sold Clark's blood to Papa Luthor. MamaKent says that they'll find someone they can trust. Perhaps some sort of time-traveling frontier Medicine Woman. MamaKent nags that they may have to risk someone's learning Clark's secret. Bo, deathly serious, says that this is about Clark being hurt by his own powers for the first time. Wait, isn't that the theme of every single episode? Bo says that before everybody runs out of the house with their peckers in their hands and skunk juice in their hair (or, er, words to that effect), they should really think this through. Clark asks if he gets a vote. Well, sure, if you want to screw things up even worse. Clark bravely stands and looks at nothing. Bo puts a hand on his shoulder and says of course he does. Clark says it may just be a question of time before he gets better. MamaKent tells him it could be permanent. Next on Smallville! A hero gets set up on a literal blind date with a veiled Muslim woman! Clark uses his powers to build himself a giant cross that he can get hung upon by bravely saying that brave people everywhere bravely choose to live with their disabilities every day. Clark is ready to bravely be one of those brave, brave people. MamaKent looks like she's going to cry. "What's the worst thing that could happen?" Clark asks. "[I] go to school and walk through a wall?" Sniff. That Clark! He's so...brave!
Smallville High the next day. Emergency crews are called on the scene after Clark walks through a wall and injures forty students on a lower level. Also, Pete helps him to his locker. Clark has Ray Charles sunglasses on, but doesn't need anything so hard to maintain as a soul. Plus, he's got a black teenager at the ready. Clark asks if people are staring at him. They totally are. Pete says they're just digging on his shades. Seeing Eye Pete opens Clark's locker and apparently knows the combination by heart. Since third grade, even. Pete opens the locker and shoves Clark's hand in there, unmindful of potential sticky love letters, sugar gliders, or locker guillotines that might be waiting. Pete tells Clark that the guy who tried to rob the jewelry store ended up on the Pete's mom's docket; she's the judge we've never met.
