Smallville High. The flowers are in bloom! Clark is staring at a computer screen. I never noticed that his desk had so many toys on it. Chloe walks in. She says that when Clark turned in his press badge, he forfeited his computer privileges. Clark looks annoyed. Chloe takes off her coat and shows off some Chloeavage. She says it's school policy. (The computer thing, not the Chloeavage.) Clark says he's trying to help Lana. "Of course you are!" Chloe says brightly. "What are you saving her from today?" Clark says that Lana is being haunted by a little girl who died six years ago. Chloe wants to be pissed, but now she's all curious. She asks Clark to explain. Clark says that Lana thinks it's a ghost, but Clark is leaning toward a Kryptonite-style explanation. Chloe says this goes against her Wall of Weird leanings, but maybe this is just Lana's subconscious dealing with everything she's been through. But must we suffer with her? Clark asks whether Chloe thinks Lana's just seeing things. He scoffs that she's not crazy. Incredibly needy, totally unlucky, pathetically worshipped, yes. Crazy? Nah. Chloe says there's a lot about Lana that Clark doesn't know. Lesbian things. Chloe says that Clark doesn't hear Lana crying in her room at 3 in the morning. Maybe Clark's just not trying hard enough. (I'm rolling my eyes through this whole scene, by the way. Even when Lana's not in a scene, it still manages to be All About the Lana.) Chloe says that when it comes to Lana, what Clark sees is just a mask. A heavily made-up one. Clark asks why Chloe is telling him this. Chloe says that regardless of what's going on, Lana is still Chloe's friend. Chloe starts to walk out. Clark thanks her. Chloe tells Clark to lock up when he's done. After Chloe leaves, we move to a Smallville Ledgerfront page on a computer screen. "Local Girl Drowns," the headline reads, and the creepy girl is pictured there in her same dress, looking very "Black Hole Sun" around the mouth. She's said to have died April 14, 1996.
