At the Daily Planet
, Lois is daydreaming about the glimpses of memory she remembers from her visit to the future… a future under a red sun where she and Clark make love. She finally snaps out of it and admits to Clark that she ran away for two weeks as an instinctive reaction to his kissing her. Clark wants to talk about it but Lois prefers not to. A delivery man arrives with a crate for Lois. She opens it and finds several men bound and gagged, covered in heroin. She assumes they’re drug dealers until one of the men identifies himself as an undercover cop. Lois and Clark hear a commotion outside and go to discover that someone has placed the Blur’s symbol 20 stories high on an office building...Read the full recap
Lois: Did I ever tell you that, before Christmas, I used to unwrap all my presents and then rewrap them while my parents were still sleeping?
Clark: No, Lois, that doesn't surprise me at all.
Jayna: And the Blur trusts you, right? And how do you always know the right thing to do?
Chloe: You don't. And neither does he. But you stick around a hero long enough and you get your share of saving him. Sometimes even from himself.
Chloe: So how did you guys live on the street?
Jayna: Oh, for a long time now we've only had each other
Zan: Nobody really bought us as transfer students from Sweden.
Lois: I thought, you know, the ride would give us a chance to get past the whole kiss-and-run of it all and get to know each other better.
Clark: Better? You tell me the color of your underwear every day. What else is there to know?
Lois: I'm Lois Lane from the Daily Planet, and I'm here to tell you that I know the Blur. The DA says that a true hero would come forward. Well, the Blur can't. It's because he knows that the best way to protect you and me is to steer clear of all this political hoopla, and remain the one thing that you and I need most. A light in the darkness. A symbol for us to believe in when all other hope is lost. I've looked into the Blur's heart and I can tell you that his intentions are good. Let the Blur be the hero he needs to be.
Clark: Is this your long-winded way of saying that you hate these?
Lois: Personally, I don't mind the bump in your geek factor. But professionally, there are these newfangled things you can try. They're called "contacts."
