Kent kitchen. As Bo pours himself a little piece of coffee heaven, MamaKent tells him she was thinking that -- WHOA! Big MamaKent lips in super-duper close-up! So it's going to be my second Rocky Horror Picture Show shout-out in two weeks? She says that maybe they should look at hiring some more help as Clark's inner cochleal hammer bone zooms into the conversation. Clark does his brooding sunglasses bit in the barn as Bo tells MamaKent that they're barely making ends meet right now. MamaKent is worried that Bo is working himself too hard. Bo, learning against the counter, says he just needs to catch his breath. MamaKent is filling out a "Board of Education disability application." Hasn't all this happened within, like, five hours? Bo says that the counselor told them Clark could still take his regular classes. "Until when?" MamaKent asks. MamaKent says that Clark's life has changed, as has Bo's, but neither one of them will admit it. Wait, I thought Clark was totally resigned to life as a blind man. Is it just me or do the dots of this episode just not connect? Well, it's just an excuse for MamaKent to say, "You both think you're supermen who can do everything alone, but you can't anymore!" I think Bo is tired because there's a massive cheese leak coming from somewhere on the farm. MamaKent throws down her pencil and says that Bo and Clark both need to start relying on people. Damn, woman! Point taken!
Tinkly piano music as we transition from the barn to Stately Luthor Manor. Lex is looking at some sort of very colorful document with letterhead from The Talon. Lana strides right in. Security! She tells Lex that she got a letter from an insurance carrier saying that all of her medical expenses had already been taken care of. Lex says that it wasn't Lana's fault. The stompy horse thing, that is -- not everything else wrong with the show. Lex says he pushed her into the stall and spooked the horse. So it's Lex and not the horse I should be sending decorative sugar cubes to? Lana says Lex was -- "Crazy?" he asks. She says he wasn't himself. Lana says that as much as she appreciates "the grand gestures," she would have settled for Lex's stopping by and saying hello. Lana is acting like the loneliest person on the planet. You know, The Talon isn't exactly Solaris. Lex smiles and says that the grand gestures have always come easier. Lex says he was a little busy (he was freakin' institutionalized, Lana! What do you want?) but he's sure Clark took up the Lavishing Lana with Undue Attention slack. Lana says that Clark hasn't been around. She says that the best way to stop hurting each other, they decided, was to stop seeing each other altogether. Yes, all together now: "YOU BROKE UP!" Why, oh why, are we still getting huge chunks of Lana every week? She should be off the show, at least for a few weeks! Lex says that given Clark's "new reality," Clark could use her help. Lex compares Clark to his father when he was blind (er, faking), but Lana says she tried to reach out and got brutally rebuffed. As Lana is leaving, Lex asks, "By the way, who's Adam?" Lex noticed that the Talon bill had some gift baskets sent to the guy. Exactly how many gift baskets did Lana send? Lex may have been the one inside, but I think Lana is the crazy, nutty, obsessive one. Lana says she's going to reimburse the shop. She awkwardly says that Poor Man's Wes Bentley is a friend she made in therapy. A friend she sent multiple gift baskets to. Lex says that the guy must have made quite an impression. "Yeah, he did," Lana says. She tells Lex not to be a stranger, and takes off. Lex goes back to examining every detail of the Talon bill while Lana goes off to boil a bunny in PM'sWB's kitchen.
