so, the full scene and dialogue would show a parent who is conflicted. he doesn't really want his son to let people die, but, he is worried about what would happen if people found out about his son's secret.

and, truth to be told, if they are going for a more realistic, grounded approach, Clark's parents ( or at least one of them ) would be legit concerned about Clark exposing his secret. Not only would other people reject him out of fear, but if the government got word of it ( which they would ), they would come and take Clark away to study and observe him. and no father or mother would want their child to be whisked away to be treated like a lab rat........
Yeah that's what I was saying it could be in a totally different context.
