Synopsis

When the plans for a new highway go right through the Kent home in Smallville, Clark returns for one last visit. Pete Ross sees Clark and recalls how he recommended the highway be put through the Kent home to destroy any remaining evidence of Clark's double identity there. But once he meets up with Clark and realizes Clark has taken care of the evidence and wishes to keep his childhood home, he regrets the decision. Clark leads Pete to "discover" Native American artifacts near the Kent property, which necessitates diverting the highway and saves the Kent home.
